Transformed by the Word of God

[146] prayers in [11] nations have been posted for Pastor Osman.

Pastor Osman was once a practitioner of witchcraft. “I have killed many people,” he said. One day, a pastor visited his village and shared the gospel with Osman, and the message of Christ’s forgiveness changed Osman’s heart. “It was very difficult for me to leave my practice of witchcraft,” he said. “This message sounded good to me to be free from the evil that I was in. The pastor said that whatever you have done, God will forgive you.” After receiving an audio Bible, Osman continued to be changed by God’s Word. “I would listen to it secretly,” he said. “What really caught my attention was in Matthew where Jesus said we should love our fellow man as God has loved us. This really touched my heart.” When others in Osman’s community learned he had left his occult activities, they conspired to kill him, surrounding his house. Osman prayed and escaped. He now continues to use the audio Bible to help him memorize scripture.
