As Samuel was cutting a client’s hair on his porch one afternoon, an American missionary named Lauren arrived at his house. Samuel’s wife and children warmly welcomed Lauren into their home, but he remained outside with his client.
Lauren soon discovered that Samuel’s wife and children were already believers in Christ, but Samuel had never accepted the gospel. The family had been praying for Samuel for years, yet his heart remained hard.
When Samuel finished with his customer, he quietly made his way inside just in time to hear Lauren’s story. He had heard the gospel from his family and close friends numerous times, but it never reached his heart—until now.
Lauren shared her testimony, Christ’s story, and the hope of salvation. Samuel’s heart was softened as the Lord spoke through her – to the point that he began to weep.
That day, Samuel prayed to accept Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, and his family and Lauren rejoiced with him. The Lord had been preparing Samuel’s heart and mind for years, and it was finally time for him to begin a relationship with God.
