Hector, a compassionate and reserved Latin American man, was a firm believer in Christ. He began his walk in faith after trudging through a difficult season of life, which ended in a divorce from his wife.
Since becoming a believer, Hector loved to share the gospel with those around him. But there were two people he greatly feared sharing with … his parents.
Hector accompanied Joshua, an East-West Ministries trip participant, and his translator, in evangelism around the city. The locals loved Hector, and they appreciated his company as he helped spread the gospel.
On the final day of the trip, Hector voiced a simple request … he wanted Joshua and the translator to share gospel with his parents. Without hesitation, the three went to their home to tell them the Good News.
Hector’s parents believed in God, but they had never heard of Jesus before. They thought their good deeds would get them to heaven.
But as they listened to Joshua explain the gospel and God’s perfect and unwavering love, their perspectives shifted completely.
As the story ended, Hector asked if they would like to accept Christ and, when they said yes, he prayed with them and they became part of Hector’s eternal family.
Now Hector and his parents experience the joy of sharing the Good News with everyone they know.
