One of our missionaries in Indiana works out three times a week at his local community center, where he often brings a gospel tract or a copy of the Jesus Film DVD to hand out.
As he was leaving the local gym, he encountered a Chinese woman who did not speak English well and gave her a copy of the Jesus Film. Since one of the available languages for the film was Mandarin, she was quite excited.
A moment later, a man approached the reception desk asking if they had found an Indiana University sweatshirt. In their conversation about the university, our worker discovered this man and his wife were Jewish and from New York City. Our staff shared with him our website IFoundShalom.com, where he would find many stories of Jewish people who encountered Jesus.
Minutes later, our staff met an African American man sitting in the lobby. After some brief casual conversation, our worker invited the man to visit their new church plant that meets in a local high school auditorium.
Three encounters with three very different people, cultures, and backgrounds all took place within about ten minutes! There are hurting people everywhere we turn, and the Lord always has divine encounters waiting if we allow ourselves to be led by Him!
