From fear to freedom…
For many years Rieka had been burdened. Worry about evil spirits and
night-terrors haunted her. She longed to be free of fear.
Rieka lives in a neighbourhood in South East Asia where there are no known followers of Jesus. How could she ever experience the hope and freedom that she craved?
Well, an unexpected conversation with a worker from Global Interaction’s Education Foundation led Rieka to a job teaching there where she saw staff read the Bible and pray together. Although deeply suspicious at first, she wanted to know more.
One night Jesus appeared to Rieka in a dream. A few nights later when a night-terror struck, she prayed in Jesus’ name. The terror left her. Rieka was overcome with joy. Over time her faith grew and on Christmas Eve, she asked be baptised as a follower of Jesus.
Rieka is now part of a small but growing community of believers in her part of the world. They want to share the gift of Jesus with their families and neighbours.
Many years ago, Jesus met a woman by a well. Life weighed her down. He offered her the ‘living water’ that her thirsty soul longed for. Today, there are millions of other men and women around the world who like Rieka are searching for hope, thirsty for ‘living water’.
Global Interaction workers are a catalyst for the Good News in communities across Asia, Africa and Outback Australia where there are few, if any, believers who are prepared to cross religious or cultural boundaries to share this gift of life.
You can be a vital member of this team. Your gift will mobilize Global Interaction workers to go to communities like Rieka’s.
