This story was sent to us by Umoh Edem, who is an evangelist in Nigeria…
I was born in a village called Ikot Akpabio in Akwa Iborn State of Nigeria. My great-grandfathers and grandfathers were native witch doctors. We lived under great bondage. Demons, sickness, and backwardness stopped many of us from seeing the light.
I read some tracts and I discovered the truth. It was like something fell out of my eyes. I started attending a Christian church far away from my village to avoid being killed by my family if they noticed I had converted. When I discovered that they knew I had changed, I ran away to Lagos, the capital of Nigeria. There God prepared me to be his servant. Today I am spreading his gospel of salvation (Luke 4:18, 19). Glory be to God!
