In 2013, John and I met Lyssh at the local market, when we had a booth set up there. We were later able to spend some time with her in Bible study, but the studies eventually “fizzled out.” It turns out that Lyssh is good friends with Dora, a local Christian whom I taught in 2014. While taking Make Disciples Training Program, Dora approached Lyssh with some questions and was able to set up a Bible study with her. Things went well. On the night of the sixth study, Dora asked me to keep my phone turned up and near my bed (it is normally charging on Do Not Disturb in another room), as the study would not finish until late at night. Around midnight of the 23rd of May, Dora called me saying, “You know what this is about.” Less than an hour later, I met with Dora, Lyssh, and Lyssh’s husband at Titahi Bay beach. I then baptized Lyssh into Christ (when it was 40°F outside)!
Praise God for adding to His church!
