The big canvas medical tent was set up in a clearing in the middle of the village. There was a constant flow of people who came to receive prayer and medical treatment that afternoon.
An old blind woman came to see if there was medication available for her eyes, but the only medicine available was Jesus. She stayed there for a long time as some of the team held her hand and prayed over her.
Her vision did begin to improve, but the thing that truly changed her was the love of God being poured into her during that hour.
After some time, we shared with her about the love of God for her individually. Tears welled up in her eyes as she listened to us share the good news through a Makua translator.
She told us that she wanted to know Jesus, so we led her in a salvation prayer, rejoicing for another daughter come home!
Then, the man who stood by translating for her said to us, “I am her son, and she was always a Muslim woman. She has never wanted Christianity, but the love she sees in you has changed that.”
We explained that the same love of God for his mother was available to him. The smile on his face told it all; he also wanted to know Love.
God is love, and love wins.
