Your Seed is Growing
Emmanuel and Sophina Onyempka serve in Nigeria.
Early last month I was at my lowest, but God encouraged me on two occasions. One was at a burial I attended. There, a woman hugged me with a wide smile on her face and said, “Your seed is growing.” I said, “What seed?” She replied, “The seed you planted in me is growing, and I thank God for you, thank you sir!” She reminded me how God used me to lead her to Christ and help her grow. This in no small way lifted my spirit, but God was not done with me yet. Two weeks after, on my sick bed, I got a phone call. It was a woman I did not know. She said, “You gave me a Gospel tract along College Road, Sliding into Hell on a Church Pew.” I said, “Yes, but what can I do for you now? She said, “I was that person in that tract, but I am no more there now. You saved me, and I want to meet with you.” Because I was weak, I told her to come to my office after two days. At the appointed time that day, she walked into my office with a wide smile, pulled out that old tract, and said, “You see I was the person in this tract, but you have saved me!” Well, I tried to let her know that Jesus is the Savior, but she continued to say that God used me to do the work. She was full of joy, but I tell you, my own joy had no bound.
