Wow! Didier’s Testimony – Easter with Tuaregs
Before the kids club, each one of us had been praying on his own, but me, in my prayers, I received visions. The visions showed me that the gospel must be preached in its entirety this particular Thursday, because we were wondering if we should say that Jesus was resurrected. Since they are Muslims, we were afraid to act before God’s time, but God spoke one passage to me: it is when the apostle Paul and Silas said to the jailer: “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you shall be saved you and your household” (Acts 16:31)” it is when they will believe that Jesus died and rose again they will be saved.
And on top of that I saw Heidi in the vision among the Tuaregs holding up the colorful scenes of Jesus we have printed on plastic sheets. I told myself that God wants to go further, Islam does not like showing any kind of pictures of a Prophet.

Tuesday I saw in another vision a Tuareg who came at my neck trying to strangle me because we had preached the gospel. So I really started praying about that but didn’t tell the team.
On Thursday afternoon when it was time to drive out there, it started to rain. Since Joel and I weretaking the moped and couldn’t leave yet, we went out on the patio for prayer. During this prayer I remembered the vision from Tuesday of a Tuareg chocking my neck and I asked God to foil their plans.
After the rain we went up to the refugee camp, we arrived, 10 of us. We played games with the kids as we usually do. When it was time to deliver the gospel, it began to rain again. What terrible timing. But all the adults who were looking on ran to a shelter and all the children ran to a different shelter on the opposite side of the camp, and we followed the children. It is there that the gospel was presented to the children. There were a couple mothers of the children who attended and two men came later.
Most important in all this is that God was glorified. We saw the mighty hand of God, He had prepared the children in advance to listen to the gospel. They responded correctly to questions about the previous lesson, which facilitated the transmission of the gospel. We used colors to preach (Gold, black, red, white, green). At red, we speak of Jesus’ blood shed for our sins. This is when we pulled out the images of Jesus printed on sheets, and it was Heidi who presented the images just as I saw in the vision. I preached in French and an older Tuareg child stood up and began translating in Tamashek! It was a miracle of God. He’d never heard any of this before, but with his manner of translating, it was as if this same child was preaching the gospel. At the end we made the call for those who want to believe in Jesus. Both mom were there and I thought it would influence the children to not accept Jesus. But when I asked those who had raise their hands to stand up and come forward, there was a child who raised her hand but didn’t want stand up, but one of the Tuareg women poked this child and told her to rise! Over 17 children have accepted the Lord Jesus today as Lord and Savior.
Wow! God is at work – let’s keep praying!
