I FORGOT

...to share what happened at my Ladies' Visitation last Tuesday! God is so amazing...how quickly I forget :) You see, usually everyone shows up for the Thursday night visitation, but I can't always make that...especially with Brian being away...and the kids already exhausted from a late Wed. night. So, I go to visitation every Tuesday to get it in. Well, alot of times there are not enough of us to be able to have one to stay behind to watch the kids and 2 to go...ok, yes only 2 of us faithfully go because the others go on Thursday. Anyway...(I am drawing this out..sorry!) a lady who had never been able to go before- had a day off work and showed up so I could go with her...and one stayed behind with our kids. We started door-knocking out in town. Most people, as usual, were either not home, or not answering, but finally someone answered. And,.....GUESS WHAT?!! I asked that hard hard question even after the young man said he had a church. I assured him I was not trying to get him to switch churches or anything like that...I just wanted to ask him one important question... "Just one last thing...if I could ask...are you sure if you died today, of where you would spend eternity?" He answered that he honestly did not know...so, he let me show him from my Bible how he could be sure! He then agreed that he needed to accept Christ as his Savior and prayed with me!! THEN!! No, it did not stop there!! We went next door...(I should say I floated -I was so elated). This lady...even with a kid tugging on her, said she wanted to know how she could be sure she would spend eternity in heaven!! SHE ACCEPTED CHRIST TOO!!! It was a simple, but direct question..."If you were to die today, are you sure of where you would spend eternity...could I take a few minutes to show you from the Bible how you can be sure.." It is all in HIS hands from there...AMAZING GRACE!! God makes it so obvious that all the heart preparation is HIM...ALL we have to do is ASK and then the LORD leads...He really does!! WOOHOO...just got excited about it all over again!!

To the dear dear friend I had the blessing of leading only 2 years ago...I pray for you often - I praise the Lord for your tender heart and the blessing you are. Love you dear sister in Christ!

That is awesome. I got goose bumps reading. I can remember not knowing where I'd spend eternity if I died,and that was while being a christian, faithfully attending church and doing the right things. I'm so glad God opened my heart and understanding. I'm so glad you were able to share the TRUE GOSPEL message with those people. Keep up the good work.

Heather you are gong to make me cry. I thank the Lord that he led me to your and your family so that I could be saved. Also, so that I could intern lead my children to the Lord. Thanks again for all you've done. You are a HUGE blessing in my life.

Aww Tobi, isn't it neat how the Lord arranged our meeting :) I was honestly so humbled to be allowed to share the gospel with anyone....very very humbling to be able to partake in such a work. He makes it so obvious that it is all HIM.
