Hey, I wanted you to know that my ONE accepted Christ today in Camille’s Cafe. She grew up in Tulsa but didn’t know anything about the Bible or Christ. She is a great, professional person, but she just didn’t know. I asked her to lunch about a month ago, and we had a great visit, and then I asked her where she was spiritually.
She started out by saying she had been to church a few times, but she just didn’t understand what was going on and didn’t feel comfortable. After talking with me, she said she really didn’t know anything about the Bible or the whole Christian thing. She said, “I always thought I kind of missed out on all that.”
I decided I should start at the beginning, that we should work our way through the Bible stories, which she said she would love to do. We did Creation and the Fall of Man, but this week they found out that her father-in-law has stage 4 cancer, and it doesn’t look promising. So today I told her I thought we should skip to the end of the story, and then go back and fill in the blanks, so they—Jessica and her father-in-law—would know about eternal life and how to find it.
She was very receptive and God’s timing was perfect. It was a blessing.
Thanks for encouraging us with the ONE Focus emphasis. I’m looking forward to finishing the Bible stories with her. Now I will be looking for another ONE!
