Africa Bob, Jules and Kristine A changed life who changes lives By Bob Mach Years ago in October of 2000, a twenty-nine-year-old man named Jules Séry came to visit our church in Bingerville, Côte d'Ivoire. After visiting for several weeks, he met with me in my office and made the decision to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. I had no idea at that time how God would use this one man to make such an impact on our church and ministry. A couple of weeks later, Jules asked me if he could give a testimony in our Sunday morning service. One never knows what a new convert might say, yet having seen spiritual growth, I had confidence that he should speak. As Jules addressed the church, I was touched to hear him speak so personally to those present. He recounted the bad experiences he had in other churches and reminded those who were there that they had those same experiences as well. He concluded by exhorting all who were there to thank the Lord regularly as they could now go to a church in Bingerville where they knew they were hearing the Truth. Jules showed signs of further spiritual growth as he realized his marriage situation was not as it should have been. The Ivorians have their traditional ways of marrying, but the law requires a ceremony at the City Hall. Jules came to see me to state that he felt his marriage should be correct in everyone's eyes including the government. He made the arrangements and we had a great celebration. 12 BIMI WORLD Number 3, 2012
