Atheist accepts Steps to Christ literature evangelists

I love the words of the prophet in Colporteur Ministry pages 17 &18…

“I have been instructed that the canvassing work is to be revived, and that it is to be carried forward with increasing success. It is the Lord’s work, and a blessing will attend those who engage in it with earnestness and diligence.”

This week I had the privilege of working with two of our dedicated Literature Evangelists, Sandy Wallis and Sylvia Wall. And sure, a blessing was received by us and also those whom we ministered to as we served our God in His ordained end-time ministry.
To watch Sylvia reach out and take a young man’s hand and pray with him as he shared how he will soon be ‘kicked’ out of his mother’s home. To speak works of hope and encouragement to him and have him accept our literature was a blessing.

To see Sandy Wallis sit and minister patiently to a lovely elderly lady, who had not long ago lost her husband was a blessing. To watch this beautiful lady purchase our Today Tomorrow and You volume and to pray with her before leaving filled our hearts with joy.

God is using His Literature Evangelists and He orchestrates our daily movements in ways we cannot imagine. Earlier in the week I went to visit a lady that had her Direct Debit payments for her Bible DVDs stop. She wasn’t home and so I canvassed in her street. I was invited into the home of a lady across the road. She purchased our large family bible and asked if we had any children’s bible books. I promised her that I will be back with our children’s bible collection.
As I was leaving her home I noticed a car parked in the driveway of the lady I originally went to see. I went over and was invited in. She gave me her new bank details, purchased more bible DVDs and also gave me a referral to visit one of her friends.
Not long after, I parked in a quite street to make some phone calls. I noticed some children walking home from school. The older boy saw me in the car and yelled out, “Are you coming over?” They were the children of a previous customer I had not seen for a while. I followed God’s calling and went over to see the family…. Another large order!! They purchased our Bible Reference Library, Family Bible and Foods and their Healing Power.

Yes blessings are attending God’s Literature Evangelists… and why not? They are God’s servants engaged in His ordained end-time ministry. They are blessed and all those they minister to are blessed.
