The Lord brings literature missionaries to searching people at just the right time.
The young lady at the door was friendly, but seemed to have no interest in the books. As we talked, a little voice told me, “Show her God’s Answers to Your Questions.” “Oh, let me see that book!” she exclaimed. “I’ve been studying Judges, and this book will help me a lot in my studies.” Before I left, she asked me, “Can I go to your church to study the Bible with you?” The following Sabbath, she came, and we studied for four hours! I gave her more books from the church’s literature rack. Later she called me and said, “Jasmine, I really love this book, Steps to Christ. I read it for my devotions every morning.” I’m so happy for this experience, and I continue to stay in touch with her!
When I saw a big family barbeque in process, I was about to skip to the next house; but as I continued walking, I got a very strong impression: David, do not go past this house. So I canvassed every book in my bag to the first lady who smiled at me. When I finished, she turned to the young man beside her. “Weren’t you studying this stuff?” They bought the entire set—basically Adventism in a package—and the young man began talking with me.“You’ll never believe this,” he told me. “Two weeks ago I was an atheist.” After surviving a serious car accident, he was convinced that there is a God. “Since that time, I’ve been trying to study the Bible, but it makes no sense. Revelation is especially confusing to me.” When I heard that, I knew God had sent me to him at just the right time.
“My doctor was just telling me I need to implement these laws of health and everything you just said about this book!” Marcia* exclaimed, grabbing Habits that Heal from my hands. “I had an impression that someone was going to come today and give me a book. And now you’ve come out of nowhere!” When she found out I was born in Jamaica, she gasped and dropped her cane. “The Lord told me it would be a Jamaican!” She grabbed me and hugged me, saying over and over, “I can’t believe it!”
