Can God Help My Family?
Married when he was just a teen, Asuncion and wife struggled to raise their babies but when sickness became routine, they found themselves unable to purchase medicine. “Our baby got sick a lot,” he says sadly, “and when we couldn’t give him the medicine he needed, we were desperate.”
“Then a neighbor of ours volunteered to take our child to their church for prayer. And, of course, we went along,” Asuncion recalls. This neighbor was a newly trained church planter who used Project Philip Bible studies to reach others in his community—in this barrio there were no churches and no hope for people like Asuncion.
“I just knew this would help my child,” Asuncion says, “and that’s why I started to study God’s Word in a Project Philip Bible study. I needed to find out how God can help my family, so this was my opportunity.”
Training to Help
As he studied, he began to understand how God’s love was his only hope. “I trusted God, and my life has not been the same,” he confesses. “Everything turned around for me and my family.”
Soon, Asuncion was telling others about his new faith in Jesus Christ, “and I needed help and training to do so,” he adds. “In my business, I am able to help other teens here find work, and I share with them how God helped me,” he offers. “When I am able, I lead a Project Philip Bible study myself.”
“Studying God’s Word with Project Philip Bible studies has changed my life,” Asuncion says, “and I am becoming a stronger man and a stronger Christian.”
