I used to be crushed by shame, but since talking with you, I know that Jesus doesn’t want me to stay that way. I want to help everyone in my community learn about the freedom God offers us.” A student from the United States helped this person understand the gospel using the “Honor Restored” tool.

I shared The Emoji Survey on My WhatsApp Status and friends are responding tremendously. Within only 30 minutes of sharing I have 48 people who have viewed and one person so far has responded. This is the easiest way to share one’s faith online.

I used the app to share the gospel with a friend from an unreached people group in her heart language!!! I gave her the phone and she just read it out loud from beginning to end. This is amazing because I’ve heard something like 90% [of people here] haven’t even heard Jesus name! Now, she is one step closer to knowing Jesus.

This summer [on a Cru summer mission trip] we interacted with a lot of international students. One day on campus I approached a girl and quickly learned that she is from China and spoke very little English. And that's when I remembered the GodTools app where we could walk through the gospel in her language. I had never used the app in this way before, but it was one of the best gospel conversations I've had because of how clear it was for her!

I’ve known what the gospel message is, and have had the desire to share it with others, but I was always stopped by my fear of not saying everything correctly, not knowing what to ask or how to invite someone to accept Jesus. GodTools has all of that.

Tim

Samoa

Tim

Tim was in the park in downtown Samoa when he struck up a conversation with a man named Aleki who was watching others play basketball. Aleki told Tim that he lived on a plantation and had a couple of kids. Tim found it difficult to talk with Aleki because of the language barrier. But then Tim pulled out the GodTools app and started going through it, toggling back and forth between the English and the Samoan versions. After Aleki read the points in Samoan, Tim asked him if he would like to have a relationship with Christ. Aleki wanted these things and prayed after Tim. Tim then told Aleki, “Now we are brothers in Christ!”

I was discipling a lady from Armenia and shared the gospel [using] GodTools in English and Armenian. She shared it with her son and her sister in Bulgarian. She just got baptized and her son received Christ. Her sister wants to get baptized soon too!

R

Spain

R

A North African barista who had never heard about God worked in a café in Melilla, close to where a group of Christians shared the gospel with people every day. R, one of the ladies on the evangelism team, felt called to tell her about Jesus. But the barista only spoke Spanish.

Using the Spanish translations in the GodTools app, R shared the gospel with the barista who discovered that God chose to forgive, not because He had to, but out of love. She prayed to receive Jesus Christ as her Savior. God had clearly been preparing her for that moment.
