"Will You Be in Heaven with Me?"

Children often ask some pretty amazing questions, and often God uses these innocent yet profound questions to spark spiritual interest in their parents.

A Czech family from an MTW church plant in Zlin encouraged their non-Christian neighbors to send their son to a Christian camp. Although the parents had been resistant to any kind of outreach, they allowed their son to go. When the son came home, he asked his dad, “Will you be in heaven with me?” Even though this initially upset the boy’s atheist father, he allowed his son to return to camp last year.

In October, the mother from this family attended a church retreat and connected with an MTW missionary couple. The mother asked whether it was possible to have a strong marriage while being married to an atheist, which opened up a great dialogue. She later said, “I think I do believe.”

Years of resistance, years of friendship and prayers for friends, years of nothing in response—and now we are seeing the harvest for this family.
