Sallee was a Liberian man who attended church at times, but he didn’t know what it meant to walk closely with God. Going to church had little impact on the way he lived.
But then Sallee met a man who invited him to a Bible study on Fifteenth Street in Sinkor, Monrovia. It was the location of the Light Mennonite Church, overseen by Faith Mennonite Church of Lott, Texas. The teaching at the Bible study touched Sallee’s heart. He attended more Bible studies and started coming to church.
God continued to speak to Sallee. He knew that if he wanted to be a true follower of Jesus, he must leave his old life behind. With his job as a security guard, the work environment was bad and he needed to work on Sundays. But he knew that if he quit, it would be difficult to find another source of income.
Sallee finally surrendered to God and trusted Him to provide. He left his old life and job behind. In 2001, he joined the instruction class at Light Mennonite and was baptized.
After several years as a faithful member of the church, he was called to the ministry. Today, he is a pastor at Light Mennonite Church—a diligent watchman over the people of God. He leads others who, like himself, have chosen to live a life of careful obedience to God.
“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands.” (Revelation 7:9)
