Memories We Cherish: Called by God by Cornelia John Baptist (later Martin)

Two and a half years ago, I returned to Dominica with great joy to work among my own people. The burden on my heart was how to reach them with good literature. As I prayed, the Lord showed me I should go to the villages and towns with the Source of Light Bible correspondence course. The Lord gave me a wonderful promise from Joshua chapter one, so I went in the strength of the Lord and the Lord did go before.

Often I was rejected and mocked when knocking on doors, but I praise God for the many who took the course and Bibles, books and tracts and the Caribbean Challenge [a magazine published for many years by CLC in Jamaica]. I walked many miles each day to reach those hungry hearts with good literature. I shall never forget a youth who said to me, “Miss, I want to live a better life than I do. The ‘Challenge’ is the best literature I ever read in my life”. Praise God for that hungry heart and for the young man and the young woman I was able to lead to the Lord.
