Carlos Polanco has experienced total spiritual transformation.
"Before I became a Christian, I never felt any peace at home," says Carlos. "But today, I always speak to my family about God's Word, and tell them that I wouldn't be like I am now if it wasn't for the Word."
After Carlos accepted Christ, he connected with a Bible study group that uses our ministry's Bible placement strategy to engage people in the study of God's Word.
"The best decision I ever made was to follow the Lord"
"I really began to grow in faith once I began studying the Bible." Reaching for a copy of Hacia la Plentitud Cristiana, he notes, "This book has been very helpful in nurturing my faith."
As he began delving into the Bible, Joshua 1:9 and Jeremiah 33:3 took on a great deal of meaning for him. "When I read these two particular Bible verses, I spent a long time analyzing them and I felt a certain sensation within," he explains. "Through them, I realized that what God says in His Word is true."
Carlos has a heart for evangelism and is using the gifts God has given him-the gifts of preaching and teaching-to lead a 30-member Bible study group with a friend.
"The best decision I ever made was to follow the Lord," Carlos concludes. "The Bible tells me that God won't leave me or forsake me. He'll be with me wherever I am."
Excited about how the Lord has transformed his life, Carlos knows the role he can play in fulfilling the Great Commission. He realizes that it was not just a mandate for the disciples, but is a charge to all Christians.
"I feel a need to win souls for the Lord," says Carlos. "I feel a need to teach people, to show them Christ's love, and have them realize He is the only alternative for life."
