Mission Ministry

It Hurts When You Say His Name
Dezba, a 14-year-old student at Holbrook Seventh-day Adventist Indian School, was in the pastor’s office to talk about her skipping classes. When Pastor Phil mentioned the name of Jesus, the girl’s body jerked violently and she cried out, “Shut up!” Then she relaxed slightly and whispered, “Pastor, it hurts when you say His name.” It was like a boxing match, the Pastor reading Bible promises with the girl screaming and the Pastor fearlessly pushing back. The girl doubled over with pain after another promise was read. Dezba was finally able to say she accepted Jesus and the evil spirit left, leaving her motionless and tired. This is not the only incident in which Giselle, the school case manager, has seen the great controversy firsthand.
Such encounters remind Giselle that the great controversy is real and that Jesus is coming soon. “I didn’t realize until I came here that every time we are absent or do not push forward God’s kingdom, evil advances,” she said. “I can see that in our kids. If I do not constantly provide light in their lives, the darkness takes over and I have to start at the beginning again.” Giselle says she loves mission work, and wouldn’t trade her job for any other. “It is not enough to just speak up front in church every once in a while. We are called to walk and cry with people. Mission work can leave you exhausted, but I have never felt more alive. That is the beauty of working with God. He will do things that you didn’t think possible. It is a blessing to be part of His work and to truly connect with people who need Him.”
