Christmas Gift: International Student Becomes Believer

On a Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago, several International students visited me. One girl said, “I have a gift for you.”

I said,”What is it?”

She held up two fingers, ‘I was saved at the Chinese Church. I have new birth two days ago.”  Several times she repeated her claim of being a two-day-old newborn. We hugged. I was so happy for her. That is the best gift I could have been given – to know one of my loved ones stepped into a real spiritual life on a new journey.

Here are some more stories about some of my loved International students.

  1. Rhonda Smith Westerman says:

    I understand the greatest gift we can ever receive is to see someone saved. That was just my Christmas gift wish for the world last night, when I heard someone ask, if you had one wish for Christmas, what would it be? I am so thankful to God for how he is working in your life to reach the lost. I pray he will make it possible for you to continue the work he has for you, since you are so good at what you do. Have a very merry, blessed Christmas and New Year. With my love, Rhonda

  2. That is incredible, Kathryn! Merry Christmas! There is no greater gift than eternal life! God bless you and yours!
