Stories to Share from Talia, our CNBC Missionary

Talia is one of four fully funded missionary units commissioned by the Canadian National Baptist Convention (CNBC) in partnership with the International Mission Board (IMB). Because you give to the Great Commission Offering (GCO), Talia is able to share the good news of Jesus Christ with people in South Asia.

In a recent update, Talia shares these stories:

Story #1:

“Sister *B has been without a job for several months now, causing a build up of stress as she wonders how to provide for her family. So, one day she decided to take a train to visit some relatives in another state. She said it was to freshen her mood. That’s just what happened.

Although still without a job, she was excited about the opportunity to share the good news of Jesus with her relatives and their nearby friends. She called me several times to tell me who she got to share with and how they listened. She is burdened for several whom she said are just so sinful. She asks for prayer that they will change and repent. She is encouraging one believing lady over there to stay in contact with this group to keep witnessing to them. But she also got to meet and start sharing with a Muslim man. He seems interested to know more about Jesus. Now after coming back home, she is sending him videos and stories from the Word! Pray for him as he hears truth from Scripture!”

Story #2

“Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect?... Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” (Rom. 8:33,35). About a month ago, a small group of believers met for prayer in a nearby city. Normally this should be allowed, but with the current political situation, this was viewed as a violation of the law. All of a sudden, a radical religious group interrupted, accusing them of breaking the law by trying to convert people. The group was arrested and still have not been released. For some, this kind of persecution leads to fear and silence, but for others it means it’s time to get more serious, prayerful, and creative in sharing the Word. Will you pray for our brothers and sisters that they would not be gripped by fear, but rather be filled with the boldness and wisdom of the Holy Sp1rit? May the Word spread and grow now more than ever!”
