Another Special Life in Christ
These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!
I read about him in a Spring 2005 newsletter
from the Jesus Film Project.
On teaching-breaks from his job in Southern
California, he backpacks in Muslim countries. He says that Jesus gave him a vision to be
involved in the issue of persecuted Christians after his first trip to
After the 2004 tsunami disaster, he was in Aceh
Province at the northern tip of Sumatra in Indonesia. He was suddenly surrounded by about 20
Muslims asking what he thought of the tsunami. He said, "On behalf of the American people, I
offer my condolences. I'm very sad for the loss." They looked at him very intently and then
said, "We think Allah did it." They think Allah is angry because the Muslim people there have
been too harsh in killing Christians & Buddhists...the Muslim agenda being so non-peaceful and
focused on killing & terror. They are searching for answers.
His wife, Gayle, stays home while he travels. They
have no children. During his trips, the Holy Spirit directs him away from areas of high risk.
“I have complete faith God will guide my steps,” Livingston says. “He changes my plans when
I’m in danger and tells me to leave towns,” he says. “As I’m walking down a street if a crowd
gets hostile God always leaves an open door—He always gets me out of there
“He literally tells me, ‘You’re in danger in this
town. You need to leave right now.’” Livingston has escaped a few tight situations. “I always
feel God’s angels are with me,” he says. “In close calls, God provided locals to help protect
me from people who meant me harm.”
Persecution: International Christian Concern (I did not find a T. L. website on the date of posting this testimony) is a Christian Persecution website; and his courage in trying
to help people reminds me of some friends of ours as well as another testimony. There are other internet
postings about him (use your favorite search engine).

You have just read a very brief example of the
powerful, supernatural transformation of a person's life which is possible through the
acceptance of Jesus as your savior. Are you tired of life as it now is for you? He will
accept you just as you are right this second! Consider accepting Jesus now
