You see, this man came to know Christ not through a missionary but through that radio. In fact, he’d never seen a missionary
before, until he wrote a letter to Harvest Radio station asking for someone to come and teach him more about his new-found faith. The teaching he heard on the radio helped him grow, but he wanted help knowing how to start a church in his village and how he could teach the people he had led to the Lord.
Then one day, a diesel pickup came rumbling down his road. The American missionary pulled up to his humble house and said, “I got your letter and would like to help.” Once a week, that same diesel pickup came to his home and they would study God’s Word. Within a month, they started holding meetings under the big mango tree. The people he talked to about Christ, people who listened to Harvest Radio, or people who were just curious about the “Americano” started coming to the meetings. The farmer would disciple the new converts the same lesson the missionary just taught him. If you would follow this story for a few years you would see the little church as seen at the beginning.
