God Working in Africa
Karabo sat shyly in the small group circle as the Youth With A Mission (YWAM) students talked through what they had just seen. This was the third day Karabo had attended this small group, and each time he opened up a little more as he learned about Christ through Walking With Jesus. [Walking with Jesus is a series we helped make, set in Africa that explains what it looks like to follow Jesus, while dealing with different challenges in their culture.] Tonight’s episode taught on the Holy Spirit and the guidance He gives to believers to live righteously. The more Karabo watched, the more he understood what had happened to him last night.
The day before at small group, Karabo prayed and received Christ. On his way home that evening, Karabo experienced the Holy Spirit’s guidance in a powerful way. Despite his shyness, he knew he had to share what had happened with his group.
“I was going to do a bad thing last night,” the new believer told the group. “I … felt the Holy Spirit in my heart tell me not to do another bad thing. I realized from the video that believing in Jesus with your whole heart means that every day you live to serve and love people, showing them Jesus’ love and sharing about Him with others.”
The YWAM facilitator listened in amazement at this 14-year-old’s revelation. “It was truly amazing to see God do so much in [Karabo’s] heart in only a couple of days. I am trusting and praying that God will continue this good work in him,” she wrote to Jesus Film. “Thank you for the videos. They are so helpful, powerful and inspirational.”
