Millie D’Costa author and songwriter, has been busy writing songs about Jesus and publishing her children’s book, Heart Lessons. Here are some things you may not know about her:
“I have so much to praise and thank God for. He has shown Himself faithful to me in many different ways. I was born in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, and grew up in the Catholic faith. I attended a Catholic school and learned about God. I was baptized as a child, and received Holy Communion and Confirmation.
When I was 15 years old I heard about the Lord from my sister who was working for a Pentecostal Missionary. I argued a lot about many things, but secretly accepted Jesus into my heart. I was also totally healed from asthma when an American missionary prayed over me. Two years later I publicly acknowledged Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. At the age of 19 I was filled with the Holy Spirit. My mother was very sick at that time, and that was when she accepted the Lord. After prayer she started getting better and was healed. This was then that I really began to see the power of God in a mighty way.”
“After teaching Sunday school for over 15 years, I saw the need for children to have more heart knowledge than head knowledge. Many children could quote the scriptures, however, they did not know how to let the Word come alive in their daily lives.” … Millie D’Costa on writing her children’s book, Heart Lessons.
