Hester was an educated woman. At 20 years old, she is now a college graduate with a bachelor’s degree in science, an enormous accomplishment for anyone her age but especially for a woman living in a region where many women are not afforded the opportunity to learn to read and write. Even with all her education, however, Hester was one day confronted with a subject of which she had no knowledge: Jesus.
After graduating from college, Hester looked diligently for a job. She was interested in a government job but had no success finding one.
One day during this job-hunting season, Hester met Gospel for Asia (GFA) pastor Andro, who asked her if she knew anything about Jesus.
“I have heard about Christian people … ,” Hester said, “but, to be frank, I have never encountered such people and have no idea about your faith.”
“If you are interested to know about the life of Jesus Christ,” Pastor Andro replied, “I would like to share with you who Jesus is and what Christians believe.”
A bit hesitant but intrigued, Hester admitted she was curious. For the next several minutes, the young woman listened intently as Pastor Andro shared about Jesus Christ and his own story of coming to know Jesus.
