Passion for the Saviour
Bartimeus’ life changed. He was passionate about sharing Jesus with everyone, whether passengers or his Muslim colleagues who often told him to shut up.
An expatriate South Asian church leader heard about Bartimeus and they began meeting together. Since the leader didn’t speak Arabic, a third believer acted as interpreter, enabling Bartimeus to enjoy personal discipleship for the first time.
Bartimeus continued witnessing to his passengers. One day, an African Muslim man got into his taxi and heard his testimony. The simple truths he heard and Bartimeus’ raw honesty made such an impact that he put his trust in Jesus himself.
His witness goes on
Sadly, a year later, Bartimeus was called home to be with his Saviour. The man he had led to Jesus is still going on with the Lord and has joined a fellowship.
Who knows what spiritual fruit will come from the seeds sown by this humble taxi driver evangelist?
