Spiritual Drift

When he first wrote in, Mark had just recommitted his life to Christ after having spent a fair amount of time far away from the Lord. In our French mentoring ministry, we rarely receive messages from Christians so this was a delight.

Mark was connected with a mentor who greatly enjoys following up new Christians and seeing them established in the faith. As Mark and his mentor wrote back and forth, they talked and prayed about emotional, spiritual, and physical health, his financial needs, and how much he needed to really understand the basics of the Christian life.

His mentor shared an article about the Holy Spirit's role in the life of the believer and offereed to read Ephesians together. As they read and prayed, Mark began to understand his new identity in Christ and his call as a Christian. The topic of engaging in a church community and in God’s mission came up naturally.

Mark had already returned to church and was beginning to serve in his church's hospital ministry with other members of the church. On weekends, they would go to one of the local hospitals, visit the sick, and offer to pray for them and explain the Good News about Jesus to them. They saw several people come to Christ every time they went out. Soon, Mark began training others in this ministry and often asked his online mentor to pray this outreach ministry.

Mark and his mentor continue write to each other several times a week, praying for one another and the various challenges God allows in each of their lives. It has been so exciting to see Mark gain assurance of God’s love and power as God continually answers his prayers for work situations, home situation, financial situations and his ministry.

Please pray that Mark will continue to walk in the Spirit, and that God will continue to use him and his team to bring thousands of people to Christ through their hospital outreach in Burkina Faso.
