We have a better picture of how to convert people to our religion after hearing a testimony from a fellow believer.

Is 'from' correctly used in the sentence? If not, what is the correct preposition or phrase?

Thanks.

'From' is fine, but delete the indefinite article before 'testimony'.
Thanks

As BobShilling says, the indefinite article is extraneous. ("Testimony" is uncountable.)

It should be "testimony from …" or "the testimony of …".
