Okay I will hurry.
Background information, I made a deal with God this week that whenever I make a wrong turn, I’m going to trust it is for a purpose and try to meet someone there before getting back en route.
Sister Modolon at the gate
We went back to the next street and parked the car, unsure how we could naturally approach some older lady at 8:52pm. There were two other people with her now. A young woman, probably around our age, and a middle aged woman. We introduced ourselves, apologized for the time of day, and asked if we could come back another time to share more about Jesus Christ. The middle aged woman quickly let us know that they were all uninterested, but we could see clearly on the face of the younger woman that this was not the case. Unashamedly then, we asked more directly to the younger lady, Shea, if she would be interested. She told us that she works half day on Wednesday so we could come by about 2:30pm when she gets home. It was the best feeling and probably the easiest time we’ve had setting a return appointment all week! Even in the dark, she had a lot of light in her eyes.
Next we went up the street to see if anyone else was outside. And got a return appointment with a family. For us it was really amazing.
I know that God has been leading us and the people around us, too. Our goal recently has been to pray that the people will come to us, and I can testify with confidence that God is beginning now to deliver!
p.s. Only would a missionary accidentally read the word “play” as “pray” and not realize it until the end of the story…. hahaha!
Editor’s note: this is the story to which Aubrey was referring. Cousin Matilyn is seven, and niece Gretyl is six. And, although it is a beautiful thought of them praying together, I’m pretty sure they were playing. 🙂
