Finding Faith Through a Book Club in Bogotá

Oct 11, 2016

A young Colombian woman has been attending the church singles group for almost a year. This summer she took part in a book club, studying The Reason for God by Tim Keller with an MTW missionary. "I have enough answers now,” the woman shared as the study came to a close. “I'm ready to commit my life to Jesus." She will soon be baptized.

Other women’s lives were forever changed as a result the summer’s study. An older American woman who has lived in Bogotá for almost 40 years had never even thought about Christianity until the book club. Now she studies the Bible with the missionary and the missionary’s husband—an exciting challenge as this woman has never read the Bible. The missionary couple is thrilled to see God at work in Bogotá. “We have front-row seats to watch God work in marvelous ways many times each week!”

Thank you for the vital role you play in growing the Church around the world through your generous gifts and faithful prayers.
