Douglass-Tom-Karen-SquareI want to share three stories.
(1) It was time for us to renew our service contract on our copy machine. We were told that it would be quite expensive as the machine was 15 years old. A new machine was recommended. I wondered why the Lord would want us to buy a new machine, but we ordered it anyway. When the man came to set it up, he had some time before some of our Board members were coming for a demonstration. So, I shared Christ with him. He was very interested & wanted to know more. The next week he returned, and I explained the gospel to him. When I asked if he would like to trust in Christ personally he said, “Yes, definitely,” and did just that. Now I understood why we needed a new copy machine!
(2) Fernando came to my Bible study at the jail. He had been talking to his roommate about the Bible. After a great Bible study together, I asked if anyone had any questions. He said, “No, I understood everything you said.” I said, “Good, then let me ask you a question. Have you ever invited Christ to come into your life personally?” He said, “No, but I’ve been thinking a lot about it.” I asked him if he would like to trust in Christ now. He said he would and prayed with me. After he prayed, I looked over at his roommate, and he had a huge smile on his face. They went out of the room rejoicing together.
(3) Judy has been coming to my church service at the Nursing Home for a couple of years. One week she called to see if someone could pick her up for church. I told her I would be glad to come and get her. So, she came for the first time that Sunday and loved it. Now she wants to come every Sunday. I’m working on getting her a ride each week.
