In the Jan. – April 2020 issue of OMS Outreach, we shared this story about Fatima from OMS missionaries Roger and Glenda Kruse. Fatima lives in the Nilgiri Hills of South India, famous for its tea. However, something more than tea was brewing. Every Community for Christ church planters Joshua* and his mother Naomi* were led to visit Fatima, a bedridden widow living alone and without hope. They lovingly prayed for and shared the Good News of Jesus with her. Fatima’s face beamed with tears of joy as her life was changed forever.
But here is the rest of the story …
Not long before this happened, Joshua and Naomi were themselves on the verge of ending their lives by taking poison. Instead, they became instruments of blessing to Fatima and so many others. In fact, they have a big vision to reach multiple villages in India where members of their people group call home.
God is at work, and he can use anyone to do his ministry!
