I am very thankful for this opportunity to share with you about “What God has done for me because of the Word of God I have learned in The Way Ministry.” First of all, I am so thankful because now I am a daughter of God, born again of God’s spirit, and I have a new life!
The year before I was introduced to The Way, I felt miserable, alone, and lost, thinking that my life did not have any sense. I thought nobody could help me. I was not happy. I was a mom of two children, I was pregnant, and my marriage was not working. Because of my job, I was living in a city away from my relatives and friends. As a Catholic, I usually prayed to Mary, the saints, and many others, but my prayers were void with no answers. One day I decided to write directly to God asking for help. I wrote a letter at the back of my planner. In my prayer I said that I wanted a normal family, I wanted to be happy, and I wanted my life to be fruitful. I also wrote that I wanted to know the purpose of my life and I wanted to do something for others.
The following week my boss went on vacation, and a new person came to the company to oversee our new projects. This person was a believer. That day we worked together, and after showing him everything I was doing, he asked me if I believed in God and how much I knew about Him. I said that I believed in God, that I was a very faithful believer of the Catholic Church, and that I knew a great number of prayers by heart. Then he asked me if I had read the Bible. I said, “I don’t know anything about the Bible, but certainly I would love to learn about it.” That was the beginning of my new life!
I confessed Jesus as my lord and started going to fellowship. My life started changing right away. The eyes of my understanding were enlightened and I felt scales falling from my eyes every time I listened and understood something I had never heard before. I had so many questions and many complications in my life, but I got an answer and a solution from the Word of God for each one of them.
After I took the Foundational Class, I witnessed to a coworker and her sister; they both believed. I knocked on the door of every apartment in the neighborhood and invited people to our fellowship; I visited my hometown and talked about God to all my relatives, friends, classmates, and teachers. Some didn’t understand what was happening to me. I just wanted everyone to hear and believe the wonderful goodness of God, His great love, and everything He accomplished for us through His Son, Jesus Christ. I wanted them to be born again, to live a new life, and to change from darkness to light as it had happened to me! My life, my family, and my happiness were restored because of the Word of God that I learned and believed, and because someone cared for me and loved me. I am absolutely persuaded that anyone can live a new life by believing God’s Word, and by the knowledge of all His wonderful promises!
