He wiped away tears as we spoke.

“I had an interesting sale on Thursday – a Family Bible to a New Ageist. How does that work? God has ways and means of which we do not know. I spent 45 minutes with him. He wiped away tears as we spoke. He asked me to pray for his wife who is an atheist and has no spiritual inclination that God touch her heart so she could “think like him.”

Of course, moments later, I got attacked by a dog, jacket damaged and achilles strained further by the incident but that could not dampen my joy for the people whom God touched that morning. There have been a number of difficult things that have happened since I’ve started LE work and I have tried not to focus on them. This week I’ve been shaken somewhat but my resolve strengthened. Please just say a prayer for my family. I don’t mind things happening to me but dear God, please protect my family.”

Let’s please pray for Anna and her family.

Because you love God and you love people Anna, God will continue to use you to be a blessing to many in Literature Ministry….and of course the devil will not be happy.
