Story of Impact
“My name is Johanes. I am 58 years old. I am married and have four children. I used to live a bad life and I was so selfish. I did not pay attention to my wife and children. I was not good at doing my job. I did not like to stay at home, so I liked to go on an adventure and never stayed in one place.
My wife and I were separated at one time, and I left her and the kids behind. Our marriage did not get her parents’ blessing due to my poor financial state at that moment. I worked as a labor and street painter, and that is why I keep experiencing failures.
I am so grateful that when I listened to the radio, I heard a testimony on Heartline radio and Guidelines program that strengthens my faith. It ignites a new strength and desire in me to serve others passionately.”
