Hey Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
I hope your day was blessed and you are tucked in somewhere warm and comfortable if you’re in a cold state. I had a good day on campus and Kelly prayed to receive Christ. The other students I spoke with were Christians. Thanks for your prayers. Please pray Kelly grows in her faith.
Kelly was sitting in the southwest corner lounge in the west science building, on the ground floor. She had stick straight black hair that went well past her shoulders. She wore a pink sweatshirt and had a black winter cap that had square a Carhartt label on the forehead. She had braces on her teeth and an oval face. She was pretty had blocked end eyebrows. She said she’d do a survey after asking how long it would take I said 5 or 6 minutes. I asked her the questions I always do but when I asked what she would say to God she thought for a bit and said, “I wouldn’t know what I would say.” I asked if she went to church and she said she went to 2 different Catholic churches. “What would they say at church was the way you get to Heaven, did they ever talk about it?” That didn’t help any and she said she didn’t think so. I asked the likelihood she would go to Heaven and she thought she had a 50/50 chance. “Would you like to hear some Bible verses that tell you how you get to Heaven?” I asked. “Yeah,” she said nodding. I began to go through the Gospel with her then and asked if she knew what Jesus had done to take away her sin. She did not know so I explained the blood of Jesus as payment for her sins, the Robe of Righteousness of Isaiah 61:10 fulfilled in Jesus as we are clothed with Him Gal. 3:27. I recapped what I said and while repeating Jesus had died for her she said, “a sacrifice.” I think she was remembering some of what she might have been taught in Church (as I had not used the word sacrifice) and I agreed. I asked if she would want to be forgiven for her sins trusting in Jesus so He could live within her and give her strength. “Yeah” she replied. I talked her through the prayer and asked if it was the “desire of her heart”. She nodded in reply again and so I said she could pray it quietly and only God would hear, would she like to “Yeah she said. She took the booklet and prayed to receive Jesus. I explained living “Inside out” trusting in God’s transforming power by the Spirit. She did not have a Bible. So I gave her one and wrote her name and the date and “forgiven” on the inside, after I showed her some content in the back. She thanked me liking the bible. I gave her a Bible study and Bible Promises for You. Then her friend Jackie walked up as I gave her The Case for Christianity Answer Booklet. I asked Jackie if she knew Jesus died for her sins and she said, “Yeah I go to Church all the time?” So I said, “Well Kelly can explain to you what we were talking about would you like a Promise book?” I showed it to her and she said that that would be nice to have so I wrote her name in the front (they had similar coloring Jackie had browner hair and a longer face. Then, having taken far more of Kelly’s time than I’d said, I said I was sorry to have taken so long. Telling her I would pray for her I headed out and they seemed happy.
So thanks for your prayers for the ministry and for evangelism today if you had a chance. God truly blessed.
