Our paths continued to cross on the campus. Our conversations would consist of nothing but: “Hey! How are you?” On one of our meetings, I brought up the Bible once again, and his response remained the same. As we parted, I said one silent prayer, “God, please change his heart about your word.
”During the course of the next few days, he heard the testimonies of several locals. I then received a call from him, asking me if we could meet to talk about something. We arranged to have lunch for the next day, and he began to pour out his heart. He told me the testimonies that he heard changed his heart, and that he wanted to learn more about the Bible. So, I gave him a Bible, and we began to study it together.
I found out he was not a Christian. But now, he is a baptized believer. He reads his Bible every day and is learning more every time he reads. He knows how to witness and can share with his family back in his hometown.
It is amazing what God can do with a simple prayer. We may think that one prayer is not sufficient, but a prayer that is prayed in faith, can move mountains. And a mountain was moved in a student’s life this summer.
