Jethro was a foreigner to the commonwealth of Israel. Even though he was Moses’ father in law; yet he was a gentile. He was not an ordinary gentile but priest (presumably to another god).

I trust, Moses must have been joyful that day.
But has the Lord done anything worthwhile in your life? Have you received any remarkable benefit from the Lord at all? Why haven’t you told it to people far and near?

Interestingly, when Jesus healed the mad man of Gadara, he became the first evangelist to the gentiles. He was said to have proceeded to the Decapolis telling of what Christ did. The Decapolis is the nomenclature for the ten gentile cities at the time. His deeds were recorded in scripture for all to read.
Do you want your name too written in indelible ink? Then start to tell others what the Lord has done for you. Cause them to know that there is power only in the Lord Jesus Christ and see what more the Lord will do for you and your household.
Father, please give me the boldness to reach out to others with the testimony of the things you have done for me so that many may, through my story love and serve you in Jesus name.
