A Five-year-old Intercessor

January 14, 2011

Even the littlest intercessor can make a big difference in the world. Years ago, a five-year-old boy heard a missionary speak about all the people in the world who didn’t have God’s Word. He decided he wanted to pray for one of these language communities, so he began praying each Sunday afternoon for God to send missionaries to the Rapa Nui people on Easter Island. His mom and dad would smile each time they heard the fervent prayer.

Finally a Wycliffe friend of theirs reported that he was assigning translators to serve the Rapa Nui! The little boy started writing to the translators and then began selling stationery so he could give them some of his profits. His parents later discovered that the missionaries had become interested in Easter Island around the time their son began praying!
