Joy in Heaven!!

Gene has been ministering to a friend from work for about the last 18 months.  Randy has gone through some major life changes this last year or so and was just calling out for help.  The Lord used Gene to plant and water the seeds of hope for this man.

Just this morning, Gene and Randy met for coffee at McDonald’s on Hwy 94 in Kenosha. Randy was just unloading all of his heart and the pain that he has been going through.  Gene looked him straight in his eyes and told him “Randy…Jesus can give you hope, joy and peace…no matter what your circumstances are!”  Then he shared his testimony with him and encouraged him to seek the Lord in his life.

Randy told Gene he was ready and realized his need for a Savior and that he thought he should find a church so that he could make that happen.  Gene told him “Brother, you don’t need to go to a church to find Jesus…you can ask him into your heart right here at this little bitty McDonald’s!”  So…Gene prayed with him, Randy accepted Jesus as his Savior and let’s just say that there is much joy today in heaven!!

This is just the very beginning of a new life for Randy…please pray for him as he begins his walk with Christ!!  He’ll need discipleship and a church home.  He lives near Burlington, so if you know of a church…please contact us.

What a privilege it is to share the hope that lies within you!  We encourage you to share your hope in Jesus with those who the Lord brings across your paths!

“…I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.” – Luke 15:7
