From Muslim Shaman to Evangelist

[217] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Idrissa.

Idrissa had mastered the mystical arts of his region. He regularly mixed occultic enchantments with Muslim traditions to cast spells upon people. But when a Christian evangelist visited his town and Idrissa tried to cast an evil spell on the minister, it had no effect. “When I encountered the power of Jesus Christ, I was very surprised to see that this power has no comparison,” he said. Idrissa later spoke with the evangelist, who explained the gospel to him and gave him an audio Bible. God’s Word transformed Idrissa’s life. “The Lord Jesus started to change me, and I started to hate mystical and devilish things, and started to repent of all the sins I had done,” he said. He has since learned to read and write, attended a Bible school, and now serves in ministry.
