Fisher of men
From a worker in Central Asia: “Recently, I traveled with two Tajik believing partners to a southern town with the intention of going fishing. In searching for a fishing hole, we became lost.
“A middle-aged man standing under a tree told us that he was going in that direction and would appreciate the reprieve of the air-conditioned ride. As we all introduced ourselves, he told us that he was from the ecological service and knew every fishing spot in the area. He took us to several fishing locations, each yielding no fish.
“However, as we traveled together, one of the local brothers began giving testimony about Jesus Christ and the new life that He gives. He proclaimed that this man could get a new life today. In response, the man asked ‘How do I get this new life?’ The two men prayed together that he would receive new life through Jesus.
“A week later, we traveled to the original fishing spot. This time the man brought his wife and daughter with him, and we introduced him to a local believer with a house group in the area. Pray with us that his heart will be good soil, and ask that the Word of God and salvation through Jesus will continue to grow in him. Pray that he will become a ‘fisher of men.’”
