CELEBRATE ! ! ! ! !

Several months ago, a young woman (KSL) commented and asked for more information. She and I have been corressponding via e-mail. I gave her the name of a minister in her hometown and she and her husband have been studying with him and attending worship where he preaches. With her permission, I am posting today's email.

Dear Neva,
Judd and I were baptized this morning! After our last Bible study, we had been having trouble sleeping. All we wanted to talk about was Jesus and God and how much we want to go to heaven to live with them. It has been so wonderful to finally know we were here on earth for a reason and that there is more to living here than just climbing the corporate ladder. We both knew we could not go on one more day without being baptized. We thought it would make us better parents and better people. We thought it would help our marriage and our lives. We love God. We made the decision and talked to brother Spence about it early this morning. It was so wonderful to begin a new life in Christ together. The church all came up and hugged us and gave us phone numbers and addresses. We have been invited to dinner almost every night next week. It is hard to believe they love us just because we love God. It is neat though.
Neva, Judd and I both are so grateful to you. Thank you for taking the time to email me the answers to my questions. So many times I was afraid I was bothering you with one more set of questions, I know some of them were stupid questions. But thank you for teaching us. Thank you for using the bible in your answers so we could look them over again. Thank you for getting us in touch with Spence. He is very kind and patient with us. He really knows his bible and knows how to love. Just like you do. Thank you. I hope some day we get to meet you in person. Thank you for helping us find our way to Jesus. This is the best day of our lives.
Kara and Judd Leverington

Please pray for Judd and Kara. Praise God for their open hearts and willing spirits. Praise God for the blood of His Son. Pray for them as they begin this new spiritual journey. They are our brothers and sisters in Christ. God is so good!!

Wow, this is fantastic! Blog evangelism! The Internet may allow us to reach people that we could never imagine. I pray that Judd and Kara are blessed in their new life. Sounds like they got to a really good congregation. What a joy when you find a congregation that can love you like that.

All the time, God is good. I am so encouraged by the news. "Happy birthday!"
I think we should all pray for God to send all of us more to witness to on line. Way to go God. I bet Al Gore didn't know he invented the greatest evangelism tool ever when he 'invented the internet'. Now, how can we use global warming to God's glory?
