from crystal, Denmark
I wanted to share testimonies of my life since the Reboot. I moved back to my hometown in the very south of Denmark in 2012. My mother was in a nursing home, and I took care of her until she passed on. I cleaned her flat twice a month, and spent a lot of time with her. She never liked me joining the Family, so we made up, which was good. I had 3 good years with her. Besides that, I went to college to get my Danish back. After being on the Field for sooooo many years, I couldn’t formulate sentences in Danish.
While in college, I started to personal witness to the other students. It was all very low-key because I wasn’t allowed to talk about Jesus in the school. Nevertheless, I won many souls while there. It always started off when some of the students didn’t feel good, I would say “I can pray for you. I believe strongly in the power of prayer.” They always seemed touched at the kind thought and that led to talk about God. I’ve gotten many many souls since moving back here, old friends etc.
My town is very small. I never tell people here about COG or that I had been a missionary. I always say I did humanitarian work. You have to win Danish people as friends before you can introduce Jesus to them.
I can see over the years since I’ve been here that it paid off leading so many to the Lord as now I’m starting to give Bible classes. I have a woman that I give End time classes to once a week on Skype. And now 4 more people are standing in line wanting to read the Bible with me. First of all, I will give them a class on how to receive the HS. I did that with Ingrid, the one I’m giving a class to once a week. She wanted to know how to witness, and I found a very good class in the TFI Library. She cried afterward when she got the infilling of the HS.
Once a month I’m part of a Christian telephone service here, where people who are lonely, depressed or even just want to chat can phone in. It is such an excellent chance to witness. It’s super inspiring, I share this evening with another Family brother. I have a turn from 8Pm-11pm. I witness every time and so many souls have been won.
Since I have started sharing the Word with people more the Devil is on the attack like never before. Like the verse goes–The enemy walks about as a roaring Lion, seeking whom he may devour. The enemy tried to snuff out my life a few nights ago. All of a sudden, I woke up in the middle of the night and felt like someone wanted to strangle me. I couldn’t breathe. I sat up in bed and rebuked the enemy out loud, screaming at him. (just like Martin Luther throwing an ink bottle at the devil) I prayed, drank some water and phoned a dear sister in Mexico. She prayed with me on the spot.
Last night I felt it again a bit because an old friend had come over to see me; I asked her if she wanted to read the Bible with me, and she said yes. So the devil was mad. I feel people are so hungry for the Word these days. They don’t find it in the churches. We’re living in the Last Days and have so much to share with the lonely and lost people out there. I’m super thankful for all the training I received when living as a missionary those many years ago.
Since I started to give Endtime classes and read the Bible with people, the attacks have intensified. Dad wrote a letter way back called Spiritual attacks intensified. Since joining the Family in ’73, I’ve always seen angels, had spirit trips, visions and dreams, as well as the gift of prophecy (which was introduced to us all in ’97)
I’ve lived here in my small town with no other Family members close by. There are very few brethren here in this part of Denmark. I know only 4. I see them from time to time. It hasn’t always been easy for me to live alone. (There are other people living in the other part of the house. They are old friends of mine. I have led them all to the Lord since being here along with my neighbors.) yet the Lord has taken such good care of me all these years; I really can’t complain. I receive a very small pension, but the Lord stretches it every month. I live very frugally, and still manage to send donations to many different Family members every month.
My youngest child lives here in my town as well, and I see him a lot. But since I’m alone most of the time here in my flat, I talk to Jesus out loud as if he was right here, which He is. We have one-on-one conversations together a lot. When I take my morning walks out in the countryside, many times I hear footsteps behind me; I turn around and there’s nobody there. I know I have many powerful spirit helpers and angels with me.
I guess with everything happening so fast in the world, the Lord has taught me to praise Him no matter what. When I wake up in the morning, I sing songs to Jesus and pray before getting out of bed.
I love ALL of you around the world wherever you may be. God bless and keep you safe in His arms
