"I went down stairs last evening to write in my journal, and when I sat down ready to start, the Night Guard, Kuya (polite term meaning older brother) R, came over and started to talk to me. He asked me what I was doing and the conversation went on from there.
I asked if he had ever shot anyone before, and he said no. I asked him if he was afraid to die. And his reply was “no, because I am a good person, and I am Night Guard who protects people”. The Lord used that to open up many different doors. He kept on asking questions and so the Lord allowed me to give him the Gospel!
One of the many illustrations that the Lord led me to use was the “gift exchange”. I gave him my pink pen as a free gift… just like salvation is a free gift. He had a very strong religious background involving works, so it was difficult to explain to him that the things man does to merit favor with God meant nothing-that Jesus Christ, and he alone, had already paid the price completely for our sins.
At the end of our conversation, Kuya R prayed and accepted Jesus Christ as his Saviour! Praise the Lord, he now understands! After he prayed he took his prayer beads out of his pocket and gave them to me. He said “here, this was my grandfather’s, you can keep it… it is a gift!” That just sealed it in my mind that he truly put his faith in Jesus Christ alone. He doesn’t need them anymore. He is not trusting in his good works or religious practices… but in Jesus Christ alone!"Pray for Kuya "R" that the Bohol Growpoint Church and SMCI team will be able to follow up with him and even reach his family!
