Sonia was heading home from a doctor’s visit, experiencing horrible pain. She had just learned from the doctor that she needed an operation.
“I was crossing the street in front of the market when someone stopped me and handed me a DisquePaz card,” said Sonia.
DisquePaz (Dial Peace) is a Portuguese telephone ministry produced by Back to God Ministries International and its Portuguese partner, Luz Para o Caminho (Light for the Way).
Together they partner with churches throughout Brazil to bring the gospel to people in the community and to build the church. People call their local DisquePaz number for a daily message and to connect with a spiritual counselor.
Sonia called the number on the card. “I heard a very beautiful message,” she said. “Then the phone volunteer asked if I attended church. I said no.”
She placed the DisquePaz card in her bag and continued home. Two days later she saw the card again.
“I began to call the number over several days,” she said. “Soon I felt like going to church. I quite enjoyed it, because everyone welcomed me. I felt such a peace in this church that I began attending every Sunday.”
Today she is baptized. “I am saved for the honor and glory of the Lord,” said Sonia. “It was through DisquePaz that I came to Jesus. And here I am. Hallelujah!”
