Aleksandar Vitorovic, a 31-year-old computer science Ph.D. candidate from Zurich, Switzerland, first awoke to lay evangelism when he participated in a mission effort in the Swiss city of Lugano last year. He recognized the voice of God and felt impressed to gain more evangelistic experience.
“I saw God working through me,” Aleksandar says. “I decided to go out of my comfort zone.”
He learned about ShareHim through a friend at the Adventist University of France near Geneva, Switzerland, and signed up for January’s ShareHim trip to Côte d’Ivoire. He joined twelve others, mostly from France, in preaching at multiple meetings held throughout the capital Abidjan.
There Aleksandar experienced the challenges and rewards of evangelism. He came home excited to do more, including participating in a church plant project in Lausanne, Switzerland.
“I learned that although we may have difficulties, God is in control, and the gospel will be preached to His glory,” he says. “We need to do our best, and to leave the rest to God. He is the One who blesses our efforts and brings people to Him.”
