Testimony

testimony
NOUN
a formal written or spoken statement, especially one given in a court of law.
Testimonies demonstrate. Testimonies prove. Testimonies encourage. The greatest testimony of all time is an ancient writing tradition calls The Gospel of John. It was written so that we, the readers, may believe that Jesus is the Christ, and that by believing we may have life (John 20:31). The testimonies of that life in Jesus continue, from the Book of Acts, to Foxe's Book of Martyrs, to A Narrative of the Lord's Dealings with George Müller, The Cross and the Switchblade, and on and on, including countless unpublished personal stories. This page is a growing collection of personal testimonies.

Getting Unstuck In Thailand
