A Very Cool Little God Story
I wanted to share a "rest of the story" as Paul Harvey would have put it.
So the story starts... with God drawing a man to the well. A man who does not know God.There are two natural springs that I know of in Pass Rein. The springs are places that draw community for obvious reasons. One of them is located across the road just outside our church meeting tent. When church or bible study are happening anyone at the spring getting water cannot help hearing what is going on. Frequently we pray quietly for the people at the spring or well. Yesterday morning Mike was preaching in Pass Rein and Nathan was preaching in Poteau. While Mike was preaching a man came to the well and as he was drawing water he said he could feel the presence of God. So he stayed by the spring and listened. He said as he listened to the white man, God showed him that our church was in the center of Pass Rein (a mountainous village of about 3000 people). He said he could see flames of fire in the spiritual realm over the church. Then he said he could see the flames of fire spreading out over the village and valley. He said he knew it was the spirit of God. The rest of the story is... that He came back to church that night, last night and gave his life to the Lord.
God is soooooooo amazing!!!!
When I was reading in the bible today this was the verse I read; Isaiah 9:2-3
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. You have multiplied the nation; you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as they are glad when they divide the spoil.
God just keeps blessing and we are sooo very privileged to be a part of it. Thank you sooo very much for your prayers, and help both physically and monetarily. We could not AND can not push through the darkness without you. Your response was great for bibles, I wish that every one of you who helped to give bibles could stand with us and see the smiles break out and the joy take over as they hug their bibles to their chests. A sneak preview of heaven :)
Blessings and thanks
