A Bold Witness

At just 33 years old, Koni, a wife and mother was diagnosed with advanced cancer. During surgery, the doctor determined that nothing could be done: the metastasis was too widespread to remove all of the cancer. The doctor released her from the hospital, telling her that she had little time left.

Koni lost her appetite, suffered from chronic bleeding and sleep deprivation. She fell into a deep depression and couldn’t properly care for her family. One day, she sat on a bench outside the house, and burst into tears.

That’s when God brought Maria into her life.

Maria had been a church member for many years but had never really reached out to share the Gospel with others. She was generally a quiet woman, occupied with her own life. Recently, however, she had completed a Bible study course, made possible through your support, where she learned that every Christian is called to serve as a witness for Jesus Christ.

As Koni sobbed quietly, Maria sat and boldly shared Christ with her, prayed for her, and invited her to come to the Bible study group with her.

After Maria left, Koni went inside and ate a proper dinner for the first time in months. She felt a weight being lifted from her shoulders.

Then, she went to the Bible study group with Maria, and she was astonished when the entire group prayed for her! That night, Koni slept peacefully, free of pain.

A few days later, Koni went for another post-surgery checkup. The doctor could not find any traces of cancer in her body! After her doctor gave her this stunning news, Koni broke down in joyful tears and witnessed to him about the new life and healing she had received in Christ!
