I left Columbus, Ohio to visit my sister in East London, South Africa. While enjoying a South African tradition called a braai – barbeque/cookout for us Americans – I happened to ask the man standing next to me how long he had been a believer and how he came to the faith.
Next thing I knew I was 20 minutes into his powerful testimony. A story filled with many ups and downs – which is all of our stories – and how God had met him in all of those places.
As he spoke, I felt the Spirit moving inside me, as if to say, “Each person has a story – you should share their stories.” At the same time, the scripture verse Revelation 12:11 entered my mind.
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
The Spirit impressed upon me the power of each of the stories of the children of God – the famous, and the unknown. That same night I looked up thewordoftheirtestimony.com to see if the site name was already taken. To my surprise it wasn’t, so I took it and began the work on this project.
