Seeking God’s Favor

By FCBH

Formerly, Deladem served as the mediator between the living and the dead at his shrine. As he was a renowned witch doctor, many had encountered the cruel manipulations of his wicked powers. Thus, he was the most feared among the community of Tamerko village. But something amazing happened in Deladem’s life—light entered the darkness!

Deladem’s testimony began when he joined a Bible listening group in his village and began to regularly hear the Word of God in his language through the Audio Bible. He confessed to one of our partners the following:

“My original intent was to cause confusion and finally destroy the Bible listening group in Tamerko. However, things didn’t happen the way I planned! One of my visits to the listening sessions left me with some serious thoughts. I heard clearly from God’s Word that unless someone accepts Christ, they are condemned to eternal damnation. It dawned on me that the life I was leading was dark and evil, and I realized that if I did not repent and believe in Jesus Christ, I would suffer the consequences. My growing fear of hell deprived me of sleep that night.”

Deladem continued, “The next morning, I hurriedly contacted the Bible listening group leader and told him I wanted to give my life to Christ. I gave up all my idols to be burned in a fire, then joined a church in Tamerko.”

Praise God for His power to save and transform! Deladem used to demand money, alcohol, animals, and food from his neighbors in payment for seeking favors for them from his old gods. Now he is the one seeking favor from the one true God.

Please pray for Deladem—that just like Paul in the New Testament, who once tried to destroy Christianity but eventually became one of its most ardent defenders through the power and grace of God; Deladem would preach the Gospel to his community every day in the power of the Holy Spirit. Pray that God would continue to provide for Deladem and his family, and that they would be an example of God’s goodness and trustworthiness.
