A living testimony

After visiting a young man he had led to the L-rd the week before, our son was ready to go home and enjoy Shabbat with his family. However, the L-rd told him to continue to walk down the beach. Soon he came to a deserted area where he saw a young woman sitting on the beach. She turned to him and asked what time it was. He took this as a sign that she was the one the L-rd wanted him to minister to. He sat with her and after hearing the Good News and the hope that Yeshua brings, she prayed to receive Him! Then she said, “I made a terrible mistake.” She explained that she’d just taken 120 pills to leave this life of single parenthood and abuse but now she wanted to live – and then she passed out! So he quickly called an ambulance. He texted us, saying only that he was in an ambulance and to pray for him. Yikes!

The doctors couldn’t believe she survived and were astounded. The next morning after Shabbat services, my husband and I picked up groceries and followed our son and family to visit the young woman, who miraculously was discharged from the hospital that morning! We were cautiously welcomed into her Muslim Bedouin village as they couldn’t figure out what we were doing there. You see, she didn’t tell her parents what happened and asked us to explain. So our son told the story to her father, who was clearly the patriarch of the family. He was near tears when he realized that he had saved her life.

After sharing the Gospel with the father, our son asked if we could pray for him. He had a significant pain in his back, which the L-rd healed miraculously. Of course, after he was healed he gathered his whole family around so we could pray for all of them. Next his wife entered and soon all the aunts and cousins arrived and many were prayed for and received healings and even words of knowledge! Then they insisted on serving us a Bedouin feast afterwards – beautiful people! Please pray that they will all follow Yeshua. An Arabic speaking pastor is following up with them…
