GOD SIGHTING STORY # 16 (CLASSICS)
FAITH THAT MOVES MOUNTAINS
Posted by firstname.lastname@example.org on 08/17/2018 (Story happened year 2005)
An Igorot woman had a dream that she is being sent by GOD to Indonesia for an important mission. Possibly, she has gone through the valleys of unbelief and doubt because of the sheer reality that she lives in the mountain, so far from the city and she has no financial capability to support any mission of that type. But that didn’t shake her faith and belief that she would be able to go and serve in the land that the Lord has promised.
One day, in her prayer time, she received an instruction from God, “Go to Manila and there you will meet the man I appointed to give you the money you need for the mission.” Having no clue who that man would be makes it a very challenging task. But she believed with all her heart the revelation of the Lord.
So, she left the mountains and travelled long distance to go to the destination that God has revealed to her. When she arrived in the city, she dropped by the ITeams office. She introduced herself to Pastor Gani Sison and mentioned that the Lord is sending her to the mission field with the help of a man she doesn’t know at all. During the talk, God was already giving revelations to Pastor Gani that he’s not the one she has been looking for. Then she was told, “I’m not the man you’re looking for. Come back to my office when you find that man.” As instructed, she left the office not knowing what will happen next.
One Sunday morning, she attended a church service and there she shared a testimony about her steps of faith that started with her leaving her place in the mountain signaling the start of her mission journey. She also mentioned about the man she was looking for whom God revealed to her in a dream. People were blessed with her mountain-moving faith. The following week, at the same church, one man approached her and said, “When you were sharing your testimony, I knew I was the man you have been looking for.” Then, he handed her the miracle she has been waiting for — an envelope of money!
She returned to ITeams office and …. she became their first tribal missionary to the nations.
INDEED, THE LORD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS!
