Changed Lives – Your Influence Matters

by Hugo Villalobos, pastor of the Hermiston/Pendleton Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Churches

This year we held an evangelistic series that taught our church an important lesson, the fact that we never know the impact and influence our choices make to those around us.

Two brothers began attending our church for several months and had decided to take their next step and get baptized in this series. As they were getting up to get prepared for baptisms, they walked down the hall and saw a friend who was visiting our church for the first time. His name is Carlos. Carlos was going through some rough moments in his life and was looking for God that day. He recognized these two brothers and was surprised to see them in blue robes getting ready to take an important step.

He saw something different in them. Last time they saw each other they were under the influence of alcohol. But now they were sober and had accepted Jesus as their personal Savior. Their faces reflected peace, joy, and happiness. He was touched by these brother’s testimony so much that he too decided to receive Jesus and the gift of the Holy Spirit through baptism that day. God surprises us every time. He is good all the time. They are currently being equipped and trained to become servant leaders.
