Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
“Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” –John 9:25
When the Pharisee’s heard that Jesus had healed a man born blind, they did everything they could to discredit this man’s testimony and condemn the work of Christ. But the evidence was clear. The healed man did not claim to be a great theologian nor intended to challenge the religious authorities. He simply told his story. He was blind, and then he wasn’t.
We are called to tell our story and to be witnesses of the great works of our God. We don’t need to pretend to understand all the deep mysteries of heaven and hell nor convince the skeptics of the truths we hold true by faith. We simply tell our stories, and the work of God will speak for itself. The problem is many stories never get told.
Living here and doing what I do, I have the unique opportunity to hear so many stories, witness drastic transformations of entire families, and see for myself the very hand of God change people’s lives. The glory and power of our living God is so evident all around me, but the problem is these stories just never get told.
That is what I have set out to change. With the sole purpose of bringing glory to the name of our good and Heavenly Father, I write these short testimonies the best I can. Note, that I have chosen to write these stories as they were told to me from the perspective of the person to whom the story belongs. Though they are not word for word translations and many are pieced together from years of tearful conversations, desperate prayer requests, and simply walking alongside these brothers and sisters through many life circumstances, I will do my best to simply share what God is doing in Danlí, Honduras.
I am just a simple person who is trying to follow God the best I can. For He has changed my life and my heart. He has shown me what it is to love and to serve. And I spend my days trying to imitate His example wherever I am.
