WORMS … who would have thought that a town with a name like that, will see SOULS coming toJESUS, hearts wide open to the move of the Holy Spirit and IGNITED for Jesus. All this happening underground … in the privacy of a single BOLD believer’s home, HUNGRY for more.
Last Thursday evening on Sept. 14, 2017, I drove southwards from Frankfurt, creeping through traffic jams on Germany’s Autobahns famous for having no speed limits (not true) and torrential downpour to get to a small German town called Worms.
I circled around the small town’s train station for over an hour, like an ignorant tourist, fulfilling every terrible Asian driver stereotypes while struggling to find the right address. Meanwhile, 6 young women in their late teens/early twenties were waiting for me to arrive, patiently, in a quiet,sleepy neighborhood. I felt so pissed to be stalled by the enemy! At the same time, I had a feeling this was going to be an important assignment from the Lord on that crappy weather day.
When I decided with the host, Marcella (a future architect btw), to come visit with her and a couple of new believers (who got saved at my home outreach in March), I thought I was just doing new disciple follow-up, planning to do a simple Bible study to initiate the love of God’s Word to infant believers. What took place at Worms blew me out of the water!
Right off the block, I was led by the Holy Spirit to conduct the sharing of personal testimonies. As Marcella and I shared how God rescued us individually out of dysfunction, brokenness and abuse,the young women immediately connected with our stories, shaking and weeping without restraint.All 3 young women who do not know Jesus and were invited by … get this … baby believers (!) …received Jesus whole heartedly into their lives within one hour of my arrival. BAAM! Just like that.
