John’s Testimony

Elizabeth’s Testimony

cleaning-wounds-turkanaIn short, my testimony is that I have seen the lost found, the broken find hope, and those desolate adopted by a Father who loves them. And I have also seen God transform a truly materialistic, insecure, self-centered, American woman into a compassionate, God seeking, follower of Christ.

I was raised in the Church, accepted Christ around four years of age, and was home schooled 1st through 12th grade. I moved to Kenya in 2011 after graduating from nursing school. I passionately tried to help solve physical problems with my hands, working as a nurse and tending to orphans, but found no satisfaction in what I was doing. This was when the truth finally hit me: The physical problems and poverty in Africa are a manifestation of the underlying Spiritual problems. How can you treat the physical consequences of sin, without dealing with the sin itself? Africa has the same problem you see everywhere: separation from God, and life in a fallen world. When I realized this, I started praying that God would give me just one  disciple. Just one, please Lord! (Matthew 28:18-20). It wasn’t but a few days later that I was dismissed from my nursing position because of my beliefs. Everything I had worked for over the past year was lost. 

I went home to my little house in Africa that night and seriously started praying. I cried; I repented before God for serving Him “my way” and asked for Him to take control. After a few days, I met an Israelite couple almost standing at my front door. Greg and Beverly Wootton (with Life Changing Discipleship) were at my compound for a neighbor’s BBQ. They told me incredible, unbelievable stories of remote villages hungry for the Gospel. They told me of the joy they had in starting Bible Training Centers for Pastors (BTCP) and for church leadership who couldn’t afford formal training. I didn’t realize it then, but this was the beginning of God answering my prayer. I was soon to be spiritually adopted by the Wootton family and the families of their indigenous missionaries. I was also soon added to the ever-growing list of Bible Training Center students. While studying BTCP for three years, the Lord blessed me with countless missions opportunities. I spent countless hours studying in the back seat of the Wootton’s van while

Meanwhile, back in Kenya, God gave me a class of 150 young ladies in a genocide stricken mountain chain, followed by many other classes.  It was while I was in training that I met my husband, a young indigenous missionary being discipled in Uganda by the Wotton’s son, Isaac. It’s funny looking back at how many countless hours John and I spent on mission trips together, playing Uno in the back of the van, doing evangelism in dangerous slums, and studying together without knowing we would be spending the rest of our lives serving the Lord as a team!

Now, My hearts desire is to be used by God to give others the same opportunity that Christ gave me. I want to spend my life teaching others while witnessing Him transform their lives. 2 Timothy 2:2 “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.”
