Whilst door knocking around the area surrounding the Bell Farm Church, I met Collin. As we began to chat two things became abundantly clear. Firstly Collin has been beaten around real bad by life, in bondage to addiction, his confusion and pain was obvious. Secondly, he was lost, without purpose and in desperate need of a saviour and friend. I left that day feeling the Lords burden for his lost son, we prayed.
A few days later we returned, he wasn't receptive and said he had no recollection of us speaking previously. Later that day he made his way down to the church and opened up some more and shared his predicament and pain. I was able to pray with him and briefly share the gospel but he left seaming as defeated as before.
A couple of weeks passed and then God brought him back. Coming to the church in quite a state, Collin began to pour out his heart and over two hours talked it out with me. He told me that since we last met he had a good week and didn't feel alone. So much came out during those two hours but the next two hours I, along with Tracy from the church, saw God move mountains right before our eyes through us by the working of his Spirit. Collin accepted Jesus as his Lord and saviour, asked and received His forgiveness from a remorseful heart and went through a deliverance process with us and the Lord. Unable to even look me in the eyes at the beginning, Collin left with peace on his face and even laughing with us.
Praise and glory and honor to Jesus who alone is able to save, restore and sustain
