“I wish you could have seen her face light up!”

Kellee, GoodSeed USA staff member, used going to ride roller coasters with her kids this summer as an opportunity for them to share the gospel. She writes:

Will Rogers, Oklahoma’s Favorite Son, was famously quoted as saying, “I never met a man I didn’t like.” My daughter Kora, showing her Oklahoma roots (now transplanted in Idaho by way of Thailand), would say the same thing about everyone she meets. This summer, we got season passes to the local theme park.  We love spending our days in the sunshine, soaking up every last ray we can before our short Idaho summer ends. And in every line, at each attraction, even in the bathroom, Kora makes friends.  It’s always fun to meet someone new! 

When GoodSeed released the give-away cards for the children’s book, “The Lamb”, I snatched some up and let Kora know I was carrying some in my bag. I told her that she could give them to the friends she makes.  As a mom, it has been a blessing to see her share the gospel, even at 5 years old.  One night, we were in the line for a ride, and Kora made fast friends with another little girl. She even ditched her brother, Kees, so they could ride together. While they were on the ride, I introduced myself to the girl’s uncle and chatted a little bit about what they’d been doing on their vacation. When the girls got off the ride, they walked over holding hands, and Kora gave her a card. I wish you could have seen her face light up!  She kept saying, “Look, my new friend gave me this!”   

The park was closing soon so we went our separate ways, the day of fun at an end. I doubt we’ll ever see this family again, and I don’t know if they’ll download or read the book, but I do know that God is faithful, and I trust He is working behind the scenes in ways I don’t know.  Each card we hand out, is another person we can pray for, another seed that is planted. We pray that God will use our efforts and multiply them! 

 

May we each have courage like Kora to share the life-changing message of the gospel with those we meet. Pray for opportunities, stock up on these evangelism aids, and trust God for good things to come! http://us.goodseed.com/the-lamb-business-card-pack-of-25/ 

 

 

A getaway that led to an opportunity

This story comes from Tom, one of our GoodSeed USA staff members. He writes about making a connection with a passenger on a recent flight.

My wife and I recently made a trip to New Zealand to celebrate our anniversary. On our return flight to Australia, I found myself sitting next to a young man from Oman. We politely started plane conversation. You know how it goes: “Where are you going? For work or pleasure?” I discovered he was heading back to Sydney to return to university.  I remarked that I had just done some teaching in several churches around the Sydney area. He proceeded to let me know that he was Muslim. I was in prayer during this time and asking God how to guide this conversation for further spiritual benefit. Thankfully I was prepared. I had brought along a business card with a free link to the eBook for All that the Prophets have Spoken. I respectfully handed him the card, saying that it tells of the prophets of old and that he may want to know more about what they had said. I told him it is even written in Arabic, a language he also spoke. He took the card and held it between his hands for the rest of the trip. We parted ways at the end of the flight, but my prayers went with him. I pray that he would read and grasp the message of the book, that of the centricity of Jesus Christ in the Bible and all of history, and that he would in turn embrace the God of peace.
