After 108 years ...

December 29, 2017

After 108 years she celebrates her 1st Christmas 




Mama Pilistina is now 108 years old. She has lived her whole life in rural Tanzania and most of that life she did NOT know her Lord and Saviour!

On March 12, 2017, ACrossMission visited her; she heard Adda sing "Break Every Chain" which was translated into Kiswahili. Pilistina began to ask her son (himself about 85yrs) about Jesus and he led her to Jesus. Pilistina came to confess her belief in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit on July 22, 2017. There is much joy in heaven when God's children return to Him.


A song, sung to her by Adda in Kiswahili broke her heart and she was inspired to seek Jesus. We must never give up hope. Sometimes it takes a few years, sometimes 107. But with prayer and persistent love, every chain can be broken and every child of God brought home. Jesus is the unique Truth, the Life, and the Way. Bwana Baba Asifiwe, Bwana Yesu Asifiwe, Roho Mtakatifu Asifiwe. Mungua awabariki sana.

In July Pilistina accepted Jesus as her LORD and as her Saviour ... so today, for the first time in 107 years of life, she celebrates the incarnation of Jesus Christ and we celebrate with her. It is a very good day indeed.


Yes, I do believe in miracles.


God be praised.

be blessed.


Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
    praise him in his mighty firmament!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
    praise him according to his surpassing greatness!

Praise him with trumpet sound;
    praise him with lute and harp!

Praise him with tambourine and dance;
    praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with clanging cymbals;
    praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
