What Happens When You Listen to God

In her prayer she heard God‘s still small voice, “Go to Maharabi.”

Where is Maharabi? Connie thought. After her prayer time she became distracted with busyness.

A few days later in prayer she heard God whisper again, “Go to Maharabi.” This time she stopped to pay attention. Where was Maharabi? She never heard of this place. Getting on the internet Connie discovered this place to be a small village in India.

Connie has a heart to share the gospel that Jesus came to die for our sins to pay the penalty of death for us so that we can be alive in Him today and into eternity with His resurrection power through the gift of the Holy Spirit.

She immediately partnered with a mission team to bring the gospel to Maharabi. The mission organization put Connie in touch with an interpreter in India who would take her to Maharabi. She discovered that her interpreter had recently had a dream where he preached the word of God in Maharabi.

Together, Connie and a man across the world, listened and obeyed the call of God to bring the message of hope to a small village in India. Connie shares what happened when she opened her mouth to speak:

Jesus rules and reigns in Maharabi!  Jesus’ name rings throughout Maharabi!  Salvation has come to Maharabi!

For seven days my team of five went door to door. Seventy one people professed Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.  Praise the name of Jesus! Personally I never experienced anything like it; whole families gave their lives to Christ…. Aunts, Uncles, young and old are hungry for Jesus!  God is so good! I’m amazed. All He asked of us to do was open our mouths, and home after home that we entered He filled our mouths with truth.

So many examples of how people came to know Jesus as their Savior; one widow with three children received Christ and afterwards they brought us her relatives, while walking on the road eight young men approached us and all sat and listened to the gospel of the Kingdom and joyfully received the simple plan of salvation.

On my last day in Maharabi the little church was packed with new believers.  I shared and encouraged them with the story of Peter‘s failed attempt to walk on water and my battle with cancer. There was not a dry eye in the place. Jesus was there in that little church!  Jesus touched their hearts once again…

Truly the harvest is ripe. My cry once again is “Here am I, send me.”  Who will come back with me to reap the harvest?

“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then Jesus said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:36-38

    Connie glows with Christ! Love her faithfulness and willingness to GO when God asks. May we all be that bold and ready and willing to say, “Lord, send me!” Praise Him for he is the Good Shepherd!
