Amanda Young, a recent Ngee Ann Polytechnic graduate, and her team mate, Yvonne Soh, were left on their own to roam a campus in Ulaanbaatar without a local student translator. This RevUp* trip to Mongolia was not quite what they had imagined it to be.
Discouraged after 20 minutes of aimless walking, they decided to pray as they walked, hoping to start a decent spiritual conversation in English with any student.
Not long after, they approached a lady sitting alone on a bench. To their pleasant surprise, she spoke excellent English! However, their hearts soon sank as they learnt she had heard the presentation of the gospel two weeks ago and chose to remain a freethinker. Nonetheless, Amanda continued to share The Four Spiritual Laws booklet with her.
At the end of the conversation, the lady stunned both Amanda and Yvonne by deciding to acknowledge Christ as her personal Lord and Saviour!
“God showed me that He can really do the impossible,” recounted Amanda, now an intern with the Campus Ministry of Cru Singapore.
“Through this experience, I learnt to expect the unexpected. Despite my skepticism, He caused a complete change of the student’s heart towards the gospel in a span of just two weeks.”
“I am humbled and thankful to be used by God in this mission trip.”
We are reminded once again that God is the God of missions whose arm is not too short to save! (Isaiah 59:1)
