“I am sinking”
Edmar, a Cebuano speaker in the Philippines who attended our School of Storying there, went to a friend he had known from his church for six years, and assumed he was a Christian. He told his friend the story of Jesus walking on the water, and his friend began weeping.
“I see myself as Peter,” he confessed to Edmar. “I am sinking, and I need to call out to Jesus for help.”
Edmar was shocked that he had never made a decision to follow Christ. “When we call out to Jesus, He will grab us and save us,” Edmar explained to his friend, who is now following Jesus wholeheartedly and serving in his church!
