Our mission has shared some testimonies of hope in the new booklet we have mailed out to ten cities in Saskatchewan in September of 2007. We have done this to show there definitely IS HOPE in Jesus Christ.
There are, of course, many others who can give testimony that when Jesus came into their lives, they went from despair and hopelessness to a new, vibrant life of hope. Many positive changes came as they learned to walk in a daily way with their Lord and Saviour.
We are setting aside this area of the mission's website to share more of these stories as they come to our attention. Some may end up one day in new editions of our Hope booklet, or in separate tracts. Yet it seems a shame to hold them back for such an indefinite time, so we are publishing them here. You may want to bookmark this page and check back from time to time.
For those who would like to send us their testimony for publication here, we recommend a very simple outline, as suggested by Billy Graham and others. Your testimony does not have to cover your whole life story. To be most effective, it need only answer the following three points;
1. What my life was like before I met Christ.
2. How I met Christ, and how I received Him as my Saviour.
3. What changes have come into my life since I became a believer and follower of Jesus.
Note: where names are in (parenthesis) the testimony is a result of an interview.
