People have always shared stories to entertain, to inform, to inspire. Christ’s people do this, but even more than that, they tell stories to testify to the mighty acts of their God. The stories in this book testify to God’s protection in times of war, on journeys, from enemy attacks and in everyday life. They tell of prayers answered. They proclaim the Father’s care, in providing what His people need at the very moment they need it. Each written by an ordinary Christian, in their own words, these stories will challenge and encourage you. You will find yourself asking what might happen if you stepped out in faith.
Paul M. Harvey
Paul M. Harvey has been a member of WEC International since 1992, serving in Central Spain for fifteen years, then in the UK. He and his wife Rose are presently on the pastoral care team for WEC UK’s retired members. Paul loves to make the Bible known through original songs, storytelling and poetry.
Like Mary Magdalene, who ran to tell the disciples she had seen the risen Christ, the faithful, ordinary men and women in Only One Life have seen Christ alive and at work in our day in the power of His rising—and are eager for us to see Him, too.
Director, Frontline Missions International; Executive Producer, ‘Dispatches from the Front’ film series; Author, ‘A Company of Heroes’
… a rich resource of stories from WEC members around the world from which we can benefit and perhaps learn how to tell our stories to pass on in turn to others.
National Director, Friends International
The WEC missionaries in this publication are an example for the rest of us because their obedience to God, lived out transculturally, offers those proofs – that the good news of Jesus is real, is good, and produces real change in our lives and the lives of others.
Lead Researcher and Author, Operation World
In a world preoccupied with the spectacular and superheroes, it is easy to lose sight of the wonderful work God is doing daily in different places. He works through ordinary people and often in ordinary ways. Read these simple stories and behold God’s matchless love and power.
