Zai Chandler Testimony
Zai grew up knowing and practicing the Christian faith but she had never had an encounter with the God of the Bible. Her encounter came at one of her lowest moments in life.
It happened when she lost her husband, who died after being shot in the heart. Her father also died before she could process the death of her husband. For a long time, Zai became mad at God for allowing her to go through so much pain. She left church only to come back after a year.
During the service, she prayed asking God to see her. One time while on a casual line in a Jamaican restaurant, she saw her pastor and thought of greeting him but she dismissed the thought because she felt the pastor was busy. In her narration on Better Together, Zai said that when the pastor turned and looked at her, she saw Jesus on his face staring at her.
The encounter was real because Zai felt the presence of God within her and the confirmation that He was seeing her. The pastor, confused about what was happening, gave Zai a fatherly hug.
After the encounter, Zai’s life took a new turn. She became obsessed with the word and the purposes of God. She started serving God and seeing miracles happening where she was working as a nurse. She also covenanted within her self that she would serve God all the days of her life.
