Faithful to Go posted by John Sorensen on Nov 26, 2018

Imagine:  you’re sitting at the back of a church and you decide to take a chance and fill out a visitor’s card.  But that’s not all, you actually pray that someone will come visit you.

Now, this really happened to Donna.  In fact, she’d gone to another church and filled out a card and asked God to send someone to her house if that was the church she should keep attending.  But no one came.

You know, this is typical.  I was in church a few weeks ago and the pastor, after encouraging folks to fill out a card said, “Don’t worry.  We won’t pester you!”  He was proud of the fact that they would not visit those that visited the church.

This time was different.  What Donna couldn’t know was that this church actually couldn’t wait to visit their visitors.  They prayed people would fill out the visitor cards. This church that she visited not only wanted the visits, but thought it was their job to follow-up on those that visited the church, for the express purpose of making sure that every visitor at least knew how to get to Heaven!

So, sure enough, the evangelism team knocked on Donna’s door.  But this particular day, she wasn’t home.  Instead, it was William, her fiancé, and her sister who were home.  Well, the story just gets better and better.  The team returned at a later date and met with both William and Donna together. They shared the Gospel with them, and they prayed to receive the gift of eternal life. During the next few months, they were married, baptized, and attending church services and Bible studies.

We call these kinds of visits Divine Appointments.  Have you ever experienced one?  If not, would you like to?

This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. Visit ShareLife.Today and watch my interview with William and Donna.   It’s simply an amazing story of God’s provision and grace.

May God richly bless you this week as you serve Him.
