Stuart was able to share the gospel without pushing A. J. at all. A. J. accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior that moment. God’s presence was with us.
A. J. then asked if he could have not just a New Testament but a full Bible. So, Stuart gave him his pocket Bible. Stuart and I showed him a few verses, and we bookmarked them for him and underlined them. A. J. began to cry and said he was so happy. Then he told Stuart he wanted to talk to God. So, A. J. prayed to God and asked him to never let him forget what God had done on this day and to follow him always. A. J. is 9 years old. God’s presence was with us.
It was great to see the fruit of our labors. There is no way possible that this would have been successful if we had not let God just take over us and what we were trying to do, because our plans will falter and fail. God’s plans are so incredibly amazing, and I pray he keeps us guessing about what he is going to do next through us.
