The Lord opened up a fantastic opportunity to be the light of Christ in a classic Central NY way. I received a call from a guy who is the son of a couple who attend the church. He asked for help carving a deer he had recently shot.
I was able to help him out for a couple hours that evening and we were able to talk about his son who passed away earlier in the year. He and I had never met before but we talked like people who knew each other for years. Before I left, we talked for a while longer about his relationship with Christ.
The Lord used me to encourage him in his faith during that time. It was an unexpected yet awesome opportunity to share the love of Jesus with a hurting brother in Christ.
