Literature Evangelists News
It was hard to walk away from our inspirational LE Summit untouched. I just wanted to distribute even more literature and purposed in my heart to give away all the Signs that would fit in my handbag and the copy of Desire of Ages gifted to each attendee.
After an intense day, engaging strangers at the airport was difficult, so I did the best thing I could, leaving a Signs on my seat as I left, and another on the plane. My husband, who’d never really tried this sort of thing, asked for a magazine at the next airport. He advised me later he “lost it” as we left. We “lost” another copy at the laptop docking station and in several other places on the way to Melbourne. We prayed over each one that the right hands may find it.
I was still waiting for the Lord to impress me about a recipient for the Desire of Ages.
On our way to the bus pick-up, the right bus stopped directly in front of us. The driver told us to continue walking to pick-up point but then changed his mind and let us board.
As we sat down, He explained he shouldn’t have stopped where he did but the lady he was transporting (daughter in childbirth – complications) urgently needed to catch her plane and he’d stopped at the closest possible point. He was equally gracious to all the other passengers and we were soon on first name basis!
“Troy” I said, “I’ve been praying that God shows me the right person to give this book to and I believe it is you. It is one of the most beautiful books on the life of Jesus.”
“Are you sure?”
“Of course I’m sure. I trust it will be a blessing to you and your family.”
“I promise I will read it,” he replied, holding the book to his chest.
