Yesterday we had a special meeting and all the congregations of Greece and Cyprus were connected by streaming. The talk was given by a Dutch brother who was representative of world headquarters. Most of us we were expecting the release of the new New World Translation in greek, but it didn't. However, we enjoyed an encouraged talk. I would like to share with you a wonderful experience that brother from Nederlands shared with us. It shows an amazing way how Jehovah can really find his lost sheeps. Listen and please forgive my poor english.
There was a brother in Nederlands. He was a good brother and a good husband. His native languages were indonesian and english but he learned very soon to speak also dutch. He worked as engineer in dutch railways. His job was to stand by a phone and every time there was a problem in railways they used to call him to fix it. That call could be happened any time, day and night. His duty was to stay always alerted by his cell phone.
One night, after the meeting, at 10:00pm his phone rung. It was from his work, so as usually he dressed and left for the work. But he never returned. His wife was worried in the morning and she called the local elders. All together they informed the police and the police started the investigation. The problem was more complicated when the police started to behave to the sister as a suspect. It was very rush moments for the sister.
In Belgium a car was running with full speed on a highway. The car stopped, somebody opened the door and threw out a body. It was the missing brother. But he was still alive. He just injured very seriously his head. An ambulance came and they took him at hospital. He stayed some days there but.... he had amnesia. Totaly amnesia. He didn't remember anything. Neither his name, neither his wife, neither his previous life, he forgot even to speak in dutch. He spoke only indonesian and english.
When he got out from hospital he didn't know where to go. He started living as a homeless person. In this point, excuse me but I don't remember if he crossed the borders to Nederlands or he remained in Belgium. He found hospitality in a place for homeless persons. One day he found in the library a book that named: "The truth that leads to everlasting life" (Blue bomb). He started reading it, he attracted by the truth, he wrote to the local branch and he started a bible study with a brother. After 6 months he got baptized! He left the asylum and he started living a normal life as a Christian by attending the meetings and going at field service.
One day when he was at public ministry some brothers from his old congregation, saw him. They stared at him by he didn't respond. These brothers acted very wise by not talking to him, but they informed immediately the elders of his previous congregation. The elders found him and with a very district way they informed him, who he really was. They informed him that he had a wife and they showed him pictures of his wedding. The brother didn't remember absolutely anything. But the brother knew that he had to do the right thing. He found his wife, he reloved her and now he is a good brother and a good husband again.
So the police couldn't find him, neither in Belgium, neither in Nederlands. Jehovah found him. He attracted again his heart and our beloved brother returned!
