Carrying on the Torch
|A well worn Bible treasure was shown to me as one of the pastor brothers prepared to translate for the evening. His father died leaving his precious marked Bible for his sons to continue in his steps. The Bible has many notes on the second coming, on baptism, the state of the dead and many similar points of truth mentioned in the Bible lessons on this web site. This man was a godly man who prayed that his sons would work for God. The Telugu Bible shows that it has been read often.|
|These brother pastors pray daily that God will strengthen them in their ministry. They never forget their father's dying wish.|
|It was in February that one brother was praying to be
strengthened in his work when he received an email prompting him to look
at this very web site: illustratedbible.com. He did not know the
person who sent the email. He does not have time or money to sit at the
computer hunting through thousands of web sites. It seemed so
impossible that he would find our site and ponder over it. We like to think that it was an angel who
sent the email. Someday when I get to heaven, I will ask the angels who
did the email that day.
After he prayed and thought about it all day, he returned to the email center a good distance from his home to request that gospel meetings be done in the villages where they had been working. I went to my knees before God in prayer for several days till God made it obvious it was HIS plan for me to take my nurse and children to Tenali.
We believe it was God's planning to have us work together in the Tenali surrounding villages. God called many thousands to the meetings to hear the gospel. Many thousands have had seeds planted in their hearts.
