Lonie Finds Jesus!
Lonie is an elderly woman who has lived in Haiti all of her life and has had a mixture of Catholicism and Voodoo for her religious experience. Lonie is a frail woman, probably in her 70’s. One of our short term missionaries asked her if there was anything that she could pray for her. Immediately Lonie turned her head away, and put up her hands in front of her face and said non (no). The missionary then said it was OK and stilled shared with her about Jesus.
That night we, as a group, prayed earnestly for Lonie and her spiritual state. We also prayed for another meeting with Lonie. Well God worked out that other meeting just a few days later. We found one gentleman in the church who said that he knew her and would have her meet us at the corner the next day. We drove up the next day and Lonie was there waiting on us. After I introduced myself and the volunteer missionary, Wendy, our translator. We shared Scripture with Lonie and in the end she said that she was ready to follow Jesus!
