"I Got Saved!"

Since the day we found out I was expecting Little Andrew, we began to pray that God would save him at an early age.
Our prayer was answered on January 13.

We were having school together, and he suddenly began to cry and said, “Mommy, I need to be saved!” He had been asking me questions for several months, and I knew that the Lord was dealing with him. I took him to our bedroom, and I read salvation verses to him,
and he prayed and asked God to save him.

What a joy that was! All day long, he would come up to me and just HUG me and say, “Mommy, I am so happy now!”

We were in our second day of our Missions Conference, preached by Bro. Luis Ramos, and that evening, when Andrew saw his Uncle Philip, he said, “Uncle Philip, I got saved!” That night, during the service, Philip called Andrew to the front, where Little Andrew publicly told the church that he had been saved.

He got baptized the following Sunday, January 16. It was such a special blessing to me to see him follow the Lord in believer’s baptism.

It is so refreshing to be with a new convert. His love and enthusiasm for the things of the Lord are so contagious!

We are rejoicing over this sinner that’s been saved. We continue to pray for him, that God would use Little Andrew for His honor and glory, and that Little Andrew would fulfill the purpose for which he was created.

Rejoice with us….God is so good!

Thank the Lord for such a good pastor!

Thank You, Lord, for Your blessings on our family!

That is such awesome news! I am so proud for Little Andrew and his decision. This is just another soul saved thanks to the pioneers who went before to reach the Ch'ol people for Christ. Praying for Little Andrew to be used mightly by God to continue such an important work.
