Philip mentors and trains believers among one of the most unreached people groups in Asia
He tells me how he used to suffer from anxiety. He worshiped the gods in the temple and at home, but in the midst of the worship he felt no peace. A relative kept telling him about the Good News of Jesus and invited him to attend the worship in our neighborhood church. But he never came.
One Sunday, feeling unsettled, he decided to visit our service. “A sense of peace came over me from the very first worship service I attended,” he tells me.
Shortly after that visit, he cleared all the idols off the shelf on the wall and broke them. Then he took the bold step of baptism, and now he attends our church’s discipleship class.
“What can I do to understand God’s Word?” he asks me as our conversation continues over a sweet dessert.
