"I was drug-addicted, fond of violence, lawless and ungodly." That's how David, who writes from Zimbabwe, describes his old way of life.
"Then one Sunday morning on my way to town I picked up a small piece of paper from a booklet." On the scrap of paper, torn from a piece of Gospel literature, David found words from the Bible: "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly...His delight is in the law of the Lord."
As David knew firsthand, Zimbabwe is filled with as much violence and drug abuse as any country of the world. But God offered blessing and delight to those who rested in Him. "Since that Sunday morning," David writes, "I've become a new person in Christ. I'm now a Sunday school teacher at a Christian farm school with sixty Bible students."
Today, David gives out Scripture booklets, like the one that changed his life. He says Gospel literature is effective because the Word works!
