I recently read the book Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby for my doctoral studies and he said that: “when you see someone seeking God or asking for spiritual matters, you are seeing God at work”. (p. 70) This statement made me get on my knees and ask God to show me in what heart He was working with. It didn’t take God much time to answer his servant’s prayer.
A short time later, I received a call from Oscar Osorio, asking to be baptized in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Of course, I inquired about his newly found faith and he explained that he had heard the Seventh-day Adventist message from well known Hispanic Evangelists like: Alejandro Bullon and Steven Bohr for many years and that he was determined to stop running from it and that he was ready to make the decision on behalf of Jesus and His Church.
What is remarkable about Oscar Osorio’s testimony is that: he had been an Assemblies of God minister for 24 years. I had the grand privilege to welcome and baptize Oscar into the faith of the Seventh-day Adventist Church on Sabbath, April 19, 2008, in the Lowell Spanish church pastored by Cirilo Vazquez. Let’s continue to pray for Oscar and his family as he faces the future with hope in the blessed Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
