Discipleship and Transformation

Ana and Malaya* were so hungry to learn about Jesus. Their desire was to know Him more and to go deeper with Him.

Team mates Taylor Boldt and Alex Goertzen got to know Ana and Malaya while serving in the Philippines on TREK. One day, when they were partnering with a DMI evangelism team, they met Ana and Malaya and shared the gospel with them. They both responded and chose to follow Jesus.

For the rest of their time in the Philippines, Taylor and Alex met with Ana and Malaya each week to teach and disciple them. They were always excited to learn more about God and asked many questions about the Bible. Ana and Malaya shed tears each week as they shared hurts and pains from their lives and experienced healing.

It was encouraging for Taylor and Alex to see the growth in Ana and Malaya’s lives. Although they often felt that they weren’t equipped for the task, Taylor and Alex were amazed at how God took over and worked through them as they humbled themselves and surrendered to Him.

Praise God for how He used this TREK team to reveal Himself to people in the Philippines. Pray that Ana and Malaya will continue to have a deep desire to know God and to share His love with others. Pray that they will have boldness and courage to tell their family and friends about how God has transformed their lives.

My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. – Psalm 84:2
