Janellie Mesa – South Korea: “I Pray She Falls in Love with Jesus”

For a long time now, I had been praying to God to give me opportunities to be able to share His message with others. I have been a Seventh-day Adventist all my life, so my circle of friends and family are predominately SDA, making it difficult to share the gospel. Well, now that I am in South Korea, I feel like I’m making up for lost time.

The first time I held a religion class at our English Institute, I was nervous because I didn’t think anyone would come, but I had three women attend the class. We were able to study the prophecy of Daniel and touched on the subject of the Sabbath. One of the older ladies seemed very impressed by the studies. She is Christian, but belongs to another denomination. I think that the Bible studies helped to reveal some truths that she had not considered before, and I keep praying that the Holy Spirit will continue to work in her life.

This term I am holding a religion class and have two enthusiastic women who are studying the Desire of Ages with me. One has been going to religion class for quite some time now, but still has not accepted Christ as her personal Savior. I feel that this book is helping her realize what it means to truly love Christ, and I pray that she falls in love with Him and accepts Him as her Savior.

Even though no one has gotten baptized as a result of my Bible studies, I am very grateful that God has given me the opportunity to witness for Him. I get to share God’s love with others every day, and for that I am so thankful.
