Divine appointments and MAD Live Event - Lives changed forever!

Yesterday I spoke with Maran, the Indian man I shared Christ with a couple of weeks ago. He read "One Second After You Die" and asked for more to read. I gave him a Gospel of John and invited him to church. He said "not this weekend", so I will try again. When I left he was in the drivers' room reading the plan of salvation in the front of the Gospel.

Today I did a MAD Live Event in Valley View, PA. We had just over 20 people attend. I praise the Lord that 2 of the people left the training with a new eternal home in Heaven. As I left, a lady was walking a cute little dog that looked a little like our dog. I stopped in the middle of the road and spoke with her about her dog. I showed her a pic of "Buddy" and asked if I could share something with her. She said, "Yes". I pulled out a "One Second After You Die" booklet, explained what it was and she cheerlfully took it saying she would definitely read it. She thanked me and I drove home. God is good!

MAD Live Event - Zarephath, NJ

I did another MAD Live Event today in Zarephath, NJ. This outreach pastor was one of the few who actually returned my call. We talked and he was so excited about what I shared with him that he wanted to get a training in before the summer. Unfortunately for him, all of the dates he wanted in June were booked so he took today, knowing that he had little promo time and that it conflicted with a men's retreat. 90 men went on the retreat so they were unavailable, we had 31 people attend the Live Event. The people were just incredible and fun to share with. I received loads of great feedback on how the Lord used it to impact lives. Also, 7 people gave their lives to Christ today. Praise God!!!!!

Divine Appointment

I was riding with a bus driver named Wendy today, learning her route. We had a layover between school runs and had a nice conversation. The Lord opened the door for me to share my story and the plan of salvation with her. She has virtually no church background although she went to church when she was a little girl. She was going to the hospital today for a 2nd mammogram because the first one she had showed some areas of concern. I asked if I could pray for her before we finished at the Transportation lot, and she agreed. So I prayed for her healing and her salvation and gave her a "One Second After You Die" booklets to read. We will discuss it next week. Praise the Lord!

More Divine Appointments

The other day, while I was at the local school district helping them as they are still facing a shortage of bus drivers, I heard one of the lady drivers just ripping the Bible as a book of fairy tales that no one should believe. I went over, introduced myself and asked if I could ask her a hypothetical question. She agreed. I asked her what the chances would be that she could walk into a library, select 66 books covering a number of different genres, written by 40 different authors of varied backgrounds, over a period of 1,500 years, written in 3 different languages, on 3 different continents, and that these books when assembled together would have a central story line and theme, and that there’d be no contradictions. She said that would be impossible. I then told her that what I just described is the Bible, and that it is in fact a supernatural book that we call The Word of God. I then asked if I could share something with her. She agreed. I gave her a “One Second After You Die” booklet and asked her to read it and let me know what she thought of it. She agreed to do that and I will follow up with her next week.

Today I went in and they had me ride with a new driver (Maran, an Indian who emigrated here 8 years ago) and didn’t know the roads. I acted as his guide for the runs. In the course of conversation, he asked why I wasn’t helping in the afternoon runs. I explained that I could do the mornings because it was before my normal work time. He asked me what I did for a living and I told him that I had a ministry teaching in churches. He asked what I teach and I explained. He got very excited and told me that he liked reading about God. I asked him what he believed about God and he said he believed that there was one God and he created and sustained the universe. (that was good). I asked him if he believed that Jesus was the Son of God, and that He died on cross for our sins, and was raised from the dead. He said he believed that as well. I asked if he knew what God’s plan of salvation is. Maran said he didn’t. So I shared the Gospel with him and he looked at me and said that “God must have brought you to the bus garage to meet me, and I believe that we meet everyone we meet for a reason”. (very insightful….I began to wonder if he had been through a MAD Live Event!). I told him that what he said is exactly what I teach, and that is why we met…because God wants to forgive him of his sins and grant him eternal life in heaven. I invited him to go to church with us next week when we are home. He seemed very interested and asked about the church. He the requested a business card and I gave him one and a “One Second After You Die” booklet. He thanked me over and over again and said he’d read it this weekend. I look forward to catching up with him on Monday.

I also got to pray for a waitress today named Aja and share the Gospel with her. God is good!!!

Divine surprise

Tonight I went to a local sub shop to get a sandwich for dinner. It is called the “Steak Shack”, and it is located in a shopping center parking lot not far from home (great cheesesteaks!). There was an older lady who arrived just before me. She placed her order at the drive up window, pulled around the building and parked, waiting for her order to be ready. I placed my order at the drive up window pulled around the building, parking next to her. A short time later I looked in my rear view mirror and the lady in the sub shop was waving attempting to get the attention of the lady parked next to me. I called out to her to let her know her sandwich was ready. She attempted to start her car and it wouldn’t start. I went over to see if I could help and her battery was definitely dead. I asked her where she lived and she told me Wernersville on Hill Road where the older folk’s home was. I told her that I lived not far from there and if she wanted, I would be happy to drive her home. She thanked me and said she had AAA and she would eat her sandwich in the car and wait for them. I asked if I could share something with her and she said, “Sure!”. I pulled out a “One Second After You Die” booklet and began to explain the plan of salvation to her. She stopped me and said that it wasn’t necessary as she had already been born again. I asked her what church she went to and she told me “Glad Tidings”. I told her that I had spoken there before and she said, “Yes. You’re Don Sunshine”. Wow. That was a surprise. I asked if she needed anything else and she assured me she was fine, so I left. Small world.

Divine Appointment

Today we had to run an errand and Cathy suggested having breakfast out. We stopped at a local iHop and had a server from India named Raja. I did our normal routine and told him that we always asked God to bless our meal and we always prayed for our server. God had chosen him to be our server and I asked how we could pray for him today. He gave me a simple request and Cathy and I asked God to bless our meal and we brought Raja’s request before the Lord. We also asked the Lord to use the literature we’d be leaving to draw Raja to Himself and that he’d be saved.

A short time later Raja returned to our table and asked me why I offered to pray for him. I explained that we do it every time we go out to eat. I asked him what he believed, and he gave me a very general philosophical answer. I asked him what the source of his beliefs were and how did he know his source(s) were true. He didn’t have a good answer for that, but said it was a ”feeling” that he had having been born and raised in India with so many different religions to be exposed to. I simply shared the Gospel with him and told him that I was leaving him a Gospel of John to read. I then gave him a “One second after you die” booklet, and explained what is in it. He thanked me for it and put it in his apron. I told him that my contact info was in the gospel and if he had any questions, to please call me. He said he would. PTL!!
