Being Available to God

We are in the final stages of preparation for our up coming outreaches. Bibles and Gospel tracts are on order for our first month. The RV is getting serviced and repaired for safe use. We are looking forward to the divine appointments that God has set up for us. 

   Some years ago I heard a pastor talk about how God sets up divine appointments for him to share the Gospel. He talked about praying for God to use him and then having unique opportunities to witness to others. Sometimes it would be moments later or it often would be with the person next to him on a plane.

    In the summer of 2000, I was on a flight to Charleston, South Carolina. I was so excited to see if God would put me next to someone who was searching for Him. I sat next to my boss at that time, and on the other side of me was a man in the Navy. He was a nice guy and we began talking. The topic of our discussion moved to religion, to the Bible and then to his questions about God. Before we landed, he prayed the sinners prayer, repented of his sins and asked for Jesus Christ to be his Lord and Savior.

    It is amazing what God will let us be a part of in service to others when we are simply willing to be available for Him. By living in a motor home full time, we are giving our family flexibility with time and location to be available for God's divine appointments.
