Wences frequently visited the village, knocking on doors and talking about Christ. “I was persistent and passionate,” she recalls. “But it seemed the more excited I was for God, the more troubles came.” One mother was furious that her daughter was going to her Bible study group. She says, “She would go berserk! She defamed me throughout the village, telling people I was insane.”
One day, a relative of this woman threatened her with a gun, but she was not deterred. “I was determined to complete my church planting work in this village,” she explains. “I prayed very hard, and I knew God’s Holy Spirit was with me.”
A miracle occurred not long after this. The woman who had been causing Wences so much trouble came to her Bible study. “She sat down without saying a word,” she says. “I later found out that she had read the Bible I gave her daughter.” The woman admitted God convicted her of her sins. Wences smiles broadly as she shares that she is now a Christian!
“She asked for forgiveness for her actions against me,” she beams. “And she became a vital member of our Bible study group. In fact, in three months, we had about 60 people regularly attending—and she brought about half of them. She now serves as my ministry assistant. To God be the glory!”
