Wonby1 - Lygia's Story: Planting the seed in Brazil
“Seeds that fall on good soil will thrive, in Jesus’ name!”
Sharing the Gospel is never about winning an argument. As Paul says in 1 Corinthians 2:4-5:
“My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.”
The Gospel is an invitation to meet Jesus and experience His power. All you need to do to be faithful is to extend that invitation… to plant the seed and let Jesus transform a life.
That’s exactly what Lygia and her husband have been doing for years as they Read, Carry, and Share Gospels of John wherever they go in São Roque, a beautiful city in the southern region of Brazil.
“I always enjoyed evangelizing with pocket-sized Gospels, really with any material I could get my hands on. And the Gospel of John has been excellent for evangelism because it’s a complete presentation… there, people find Jesus and understand how to accept Christ as their Savior.
“We evangelize at cash registers in super markets or even in the aisles when the Lord gives us the opportunity – banks, stores, parks, trips, or wherever we go.”
And as they’ve been faithful to extend the invitation of the Gospel to those God puts in their path, Lygia and her husband have witnessed Christ transforming lives. She goes on…
“This entire time, there have only been three rejections. And the way people have reacted has been memorable. They cry, break down, and say they needed that Word. Others ask for more Gospels. People are reading them, and I believe that the seeds that fall on good soil will thrive, in Jesus’ name!”
Now imagine the impact of a thousand Members like Lygia – like you – planting seeds for Christ all around the world. Because that’s exactly what’s happening through your partnership.
In places like China, Germany, Russia, the U.S., and other countries, God is working through the passion of our Members to invite untold numbers to meet Jesus.
So thank you for your passion to help lost and hurting people encounter Christ through His Word. And be sure to order more pocket-sized Gospels today, so you can be ready to plant the seed of God’s love wherever you go!
