There I was, sitting in a prison cell. It wasn’t where I thought I’d be in my life. It wasn’t where my loved ones thought I’d be. all my tribesmen and my immediate family tried to rescue me from the pit I was in, but it wasn’t until I was in a lonely prison cell that I felt God’s conviction.
After I was released, I went to a street corner and decided the best way to straighten myself up was to kneel down. On my knees before the Lord, I paused. When I opened my mouth to utter the first special word for prayer, a strong thought entered my mind, “You are a sinner. Your prayers won’t be heard.” I told myself,
If I ever had the chance to receive
God’s favor, I would follow Him forever.
Right there on the street corner, I was converted and declared Jesus as Lord. Since that moment, my heart has been on fire for missions. I was appointed as the Youth, Children, and Missions Ministries Coordinator in my province, and had the opportunity to be connected with ILI. I am thankful for the fellowship of believers among the ILI Team who helped me realize my original dream.
