Woman Leads Hindu Coworker to Faith
Penny is an Indonesian believer who recently moved to Bali for a new job. She works at a tourism school in Bali. Before Penny started this new job, she had been praying that God would help her see that her job is a platform given by Him to expand His Kingdom. She had also prayed that God would use her to share the Gospel in this new environment. God answered that prayer!
Penny’s boss is a believer and gave her permission to use some of their empty classrooms to start a bible study and prayer group before or after school hours. Penny invited her colleague Angie, a young Hindu woman, to a Bible study. Angie was open to learning about the Bible! At the Bible study, Penny shared the full Gospel with her. A few more meetings and conversations later and Angie decided to follow Christ!
Make Disciples Who Make Disciples
Penny began discipling Angie. They would meet together to study the Word and keep each other accountable to apply Jesus’ teachings. One of the things Penny emphasized during these meetings was encouraging Angie to share the Gospel with her family and friends.
Penny shared the story of the Philippian Jailer (Acts 16: 25-40), how God’s desire is for an entire household to be saved. After hearing this story, Angie decided to share with her grandfather who was dying. She also shared with some of her family members. Although none of them chose to believe yet, the seed was planted. We praise God for Angie’s obedience.
Now Penny and Angie are good friends. They continue to meet and pray together for people they know who are lost and they make goals to share the gospel with those people.
- Pray for Angie to be rooted in Christ and be a light to others in Bali
- Ask God to continue to give boldness to Penny to share the gospel and use her in amazing ways for His kingdom
- Pray for the 4 million Balinese who do not know Christ. Despite millions of visitors yearly, Bali is still an unreached people group. Only 0.16% of the population are Evangelical and the rest are Hindu. This is why Bali is called “the island of the gods.”
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
