A Missions Testimony from Marcus...GERMANY 2013 with Charis Bible College Colorado

 

Personal Testimony from Marcus Gresham…CBC 2nd Year Student from Columbus, Ohio
Wow! The greatness of God and the power of His Word. I spoke directly with the people of Cologne and Berlin, Germany and shared the love of Jesus Christ and His offer of salvation to them. Sometimes I spoke to groups as large as 10 people. No matter the size or challenge, the Holy Spirit downloaded everything to me that I was to say to them. It was just like the instructors of CBC have taught—God will give you the right words to speak in that moment of time. The results were astounding! I personally was able to see 33 people make the decision to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The ones who did not believe and confess had seeds of change planted into their hearts. This experience was a personal blessing as I got to re-visit Germany since living there as a child. Much has changed, but the lives of the people are still lost and need Jesus Christ. I asked one Berliner, “Why do you think the German people are hesitant towards Christianity?” His response was, “The people of Germany face a lot of depression; they work hard trying to achieve success and look for answers in false identity. Many don’t see the need for “God” because they are caught up in their self-achievement. They feel it’s ok if other people believe this “God” but they don’t need it for themselves.” God gave me favor with the youth of Germany as they were more open to receive the Gospel message. I really do believe that a shift is going to occur in Germany. Seeing the youth receive Christ gave us much hope for their country. To God Be All the Glory!!!
