By the time he was in high school, Jack had chosen to pursue Cooking as a career. He thought it would be exciting to be a chef in an international restaurant. But, in his senior year a DOR team from Lanna Theological Center came for a weekend revival. They challenged the youth to consider how they planned to use their life and skills to serve God and His Church. Jack couldn’t shake the sense that God wanted more from his life, so he decided to enroll at LTC.
His dorm dad was not happy with Jake’s decision. He counseled Jack to consider his situation. He was an orphaned with a chronic disease. He had no family to help support him. Why would he choose a career that did not promise financial security? But, God was faithful and gave Jake a confirmation. This is his testimony of that confirmation.
“On the day I was to move into LTC, I had to wait for my dorm dad to finish his errands. I was sleepy, so decided to lay down and take a nap. In a dream, Satan came and began to ridicule me; telling me how stupid I was to choose Bible College over Cooking school. But as his voice got louder and I turned to look at him, I heard a sound behind me. I turned and there was God and his angels. A loud voice say: “Jack, Praise me and Praise me only!” Satan spoke louder. Then God spoke…even louder. And the two went back and forth, getting louder and louder. Finally God took a deep breath and with deafening shout, said. “Jack, Jack, Praise me ONLY” and the wind from his voice blew Satan away. And I woke up immediately.”
When asked the meaning of this dream, Jack replied: “ I will always serve God because He is the One who fought for me.”
