“Has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him?” James 2:5
World Team missionaries have been laboring among the Baka for decades and, after much prayer and teaching, the Lord has blessed them by letting them see the fruit of their labors. When Dave and I visited Cameroon over a year ago, we had the joy of visiting with the Baka people when a man came to Christ. Since then, the Lord has saved many many more.
The Baka team shared a little about each person who was baptized on their Facebook page and we have copied and pasted a couple of these testimonies to encourage your faith in the God who saves:
This photo is of Kasi (front left), being the first to step forward to give a testimony of why he wanted to be baptized. This wasn’t the first time he boldly stated that he has given his whole life to Jesus and wants to follow God’s path with all of his heart. Kasi is very willing to serve the church. He is the one that keeps the grass cut and the one who decorated the meeting shelter for Christmas. He also encourages everyone to stand and sing “with strength” while they worship.
Pray that he remains encouraged and continues to grow in faith and wisdom. He is seeking his place in the body. We are sure that God has a special place for Samba. Pray that he would know where God is leading him.
Praise the Lord!
