“. . . I got on my own flight, sobs choking my throat, wondering how many opportunities just like that one had I missed along the way…all
because I didn’t want people to think I was strange. God didn’t send me to that old man. He sent that old man to me . . .”
Our minister of music phoned at 5:35 p.m. to say that he couldn’t keep a 6:00 appointment with a guest who visited our worship service last night–and to ask if I would go to the address to let the person know he’d be there next week. I drove to the address, and 90 minutes later drove away glad that I got to make the visit. The young man, Alex, is in recovery–but is a Christian, now living for the Lord and hungry, and wants to help others. Lots of mentoring appears needed, but the future looks good. God has His ways!
