I Have Decided!

In this video, Pastor Richard Kannwischer of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church,
tells the story of a family in India who lost their lives because
of their faith in Jesus Christ.
Accompanied by music performed by Jadon Lavik, this compelling
story of how a families sacrifice to
follow Jesus influenced their entire community. There is a true
story of a small village in India. And in this village there was
this family that came to a saving faith in Jesus Christ as Savior
This agitated the village so much and everybody became so
upset that an angry mob gathered and shoved them into the public
square. The village chief confronted them and he said to the man,
“If you and your family will not recant your faith, you all will
surely die!” The man didn’t know what to say or what to do.
The only thing that came to mind for him were the words of a song that he
had composed when he had first surrendered his life to God. And so
he began to sing,
“I have decided to follow Jesus. No turning back. No turning back.”
