Recent Testimonies

On my way home from work one night, I fiddled with the radio to tune it to some station when the words and music of some hymns stopped me . . . I kept the radio tuned to that station as a preacher (Charlie Costa) came on to speak. His voice was one that inspired comfort and assurance . . . The words coming through the radio brought peace . . . Today, I can tell you that I am a follower of Jesus Christ right here in the heart of Mecca.

Over the years I have been profoundly strengthened and encouraged by the Insight For Living radio program. In the storms of my life, in the dark of my night, you have been like a light house that kept me from crashing on the rocks. Though my ship is battered and though my sails are torn, Mr. Swindoll's inspired words have helped my anchor hold.

I started listening to Chuck when he first started this program many years ago, and I have been very blessed by listening all these years. It has been a lifeline for me as I went through deep trials I never dreamed I would face. I purchased many of the series and have listened to them over and over again, feasting on them. I have shared these with friends, and one neighbor told me, “He saved my life.”

Someone gave your wonderful publication to me last year. I was touched and realized that I am a lost sinner. I prayed and converted to be a follower of Jesus Christ. I could not keep this testimony within me but passed it along to other Muslim friends. Sincerely about 23 Muslim brothers and sisters have now been convinced and are new Christians. [Our listener listed their names.] Please pray for them and continue, we are listening.
