A Mozambican called Nelson
One of my fellow seminarians, Nelson Chacate, spoke at Prestbury Methodist on Sunday evening. He is from Mozambique and lost both of his parents to the civil war between Renamo and Frelimo forces. He spoke about how he turned from a stubborn hatred to an acceptance of God's love in Jesus. It was pretty awesome. Not because he was spectacular. He spoke quietly, in good but not perfect English. But you could see that it came from his heart. And that, I think, is the most powerful testimony to God's activity in this world!
