Faith: A family affair

May 07, 2018

Proverbs 22:6 says, Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

Thanks for joining us on this world prayer tour. Today our journey brings us to the exotic land of Assam, India, where we receive this word of encouragement from a listener named Laiput:

“As a twelve-year-old boy, I vividly recall hearing my father listen to Thru the Bible on the radio. I didn’t pay much attention to it then, but later in my teens I began to listen to it with him. It was through these programs that I learned more about salvation and sin. Slowly and surely my doubts about Jesus subsided and I publicly accepted Christ.

“Shortly after, I began to distribute spiritual booklets in our village, and today there are seven Christian families worshipping the Lord Jesus there. Recently I attended seminary and have become an evangelist. I’m so grateful for my father’s quiet and steady Christian influence in my life. My father and Thru the Bible pointed me to Jesus.”

What a great story. Today let’s praise God for faithful parents around the world and ask the Lord to bless them as they raise the next generation of godly leaders.

Tomorrow we travel to Nepal. Please join us!
