"I Just Want My Husband to Be Saved"

This is Fanny. She’s 46, married and has five children. The youngest is in the sponsorship program. Her husband sells eggs from their home.

Our visit to Fanny's home

Her four-year-old son is registered in Compassion’s program at The Ark of Salvation Church down the street.

We came to her home to ask a few questions about how having her son in the program has affected her life. She and her oldest daughter are Christians, and she is glad that her son is now going to a church.

as we talked, we asked her if there was anything we could pray with her about. Her answer was simple:

“I just want my husband to be saved.”

And we did.

First Corinthians 7:14 says that “the unbelieving husband is made holy because of his wife.” Because of her influence and consistent Christian lifestyle, there’s every chance that his heart would soften to the gospel and he would be saved. It would be amazing to see this happen.

To see this family united in Christ.

I believe it can happen.

“I just want my husband to be saved,” Fanny told us.

I want that, too.

    One of our home visits from Monday, the prayer was the same… “I just want my husband to be saved.”

    It’s yet another way that makes this trip so personal for me — that’s my prayer too. I just want my husband to be saved.

    And for each waiting child to find a sponsor.

    I pray for Fanny and her husband, too. I pray that God will tough this man’s heart and reveal the Truth to him and that he will be saved.
