A pay cut for a Good News Club
Bratislava/Slovakia: After finishing a TCE™* course Igor was eager to open a Good News Club® (GNC®) in a primary school in his neighbourhood. The only time possible given by the school principal was Friday afternoon at 1 p.m.
But this was not the best time for Igor. Working as a serviceman for precise cutting machines, his job was to answer the company’s hotline, to jump into his car immediately in an emergency and to fix the broken machine. His boss was counting on him.
However the strong desire in Igor’s heart to open a club continued. He decided to go to his boss and ask him to reduce his working time. Of course it would mean that his salary would be reduced as well by 10 percent. Igor and his family were willing to make this sacrifice. It was so important for them to bring the Gospel to these children in their neighbourhood.
Igor prayed that God would prepare the heart of his boss and was already wondering what he should tell customers calling the hotline on Friday afternoon: “Sorry, our serviceman can’t come today, he has a Good News Club!?”
Though it seemed impossible to get permission, Igor shared about the GNC and asked his boss for permission. God’s mighty hand was with Igor. His boss agreed. Igor is now teaching 16 children week by week.
Because this man was willing to earn less money children hear the Gospel regularly! What an example! “Then Jesus said to his disciples, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me” (Matthew 16:24)
