“At first, I was a stubborn girl,” she said. “I used to go out with my friends, I used to club, I used to take shisha [smoke], I used to take alcohol… but I had a friend.”
That friend, she said, was a Christian who would visit her alongside an evangelism team. When she saw them coming, she would run. She didn’t want the gospel.
But what changed when she fell sick, Peace FM reported. She decided to attend church with her friend.
“When we went he prayed for me and when I came home I was feeling well,” Seidu said.
Islam, she said, wasn’t meeting her spiritual needs. She doesn’t want to return.
“I can’t just be there like that,” she said of Muslim prayers.
Her father, though, says he’s “ready to go to jail” to bring her back to Islam.
Ultimately only Jesus can fill anyone’s deepest spiritual needs. Glad this girl found Jesus and more interesting is that she has decided to stand for her faith though it means death from her own family.
Jesus words are true when he says
11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
in Matthew 8: 11-12.
New believers who accepts Jesus in countries where there is higher persecution display higher faith than Christians.
