David’s Journal – Easter Weekend

David's Journal

Mark 16:15 He (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. NIV

Every single time we go on a trip the Lord makes it very special for us. He’s always setting up people along the way that we can talk too. There are many people out there in the world that know they need salvation and don’t even think about it… but the biggest thing is… they don’t know how to get to it. They need somebody like us to come along and tell them.

Vicky and her Mother and I all had our things packed in the car and ready to go. We decided to stop at a Sonic and buy some drinks for the trip to Austin. After the order was placed I pulled out a five dollar bill to pay for the order when it came.

A young girl came with our order… she seemed very special and appeared to be a little insecure. I asked her what her name was.

She replied, “My name is Monica.”

I didn’t skip a beat… I just went right into witnessing to her. “If you died right now… do you know whether you would go to heaven or not?” She answered, “No, I really don’t know if I would go to heaven or not.”

I asked her if she knew about Jesus Christ. She said she did. I asked if she believed that He died on the cross for our sins. She said that she did believe that. So I asked her if she would be willing to say a one minute prayer with me and tonight when she went to sleep she would know for the rest of her life that she was going to heaven. Monica quickly looked around to make sure none of her coworkers were watching and then she said “Yes.”

I explained to Monica that she would have to pray… and I would tell her what to say as we prayed. I asked her to put her hand in my hand and then we said the salvation prayer together. It took about a minute to change somebody’s life.
