Everyday Shopping Evangelism
I was shopping in the Mall of America when this woman seemed to jump out of nowhere to show me some face creams from her little kiosk. And as she’s giving me this demonstration she says, “There’s something different about you, something special. What do you do?” So, I told her, “I have a radio program where I talk about how real God is in my everyday life.”
“Well, I’m Jewish,” she says, “and God is my best friend especially now because I’m missing my home in France.” Then I told her how my son Joey prays for Israel. She just hugged me and cried, “I pray a double blessing on you and Joseph this day. Thank you.” And then that same day I read Isaiah 44:3, “I will pour My Spirit upon your offspring and My blessing upon your descendants.” The whole experience was amazing, and it reminded me what being a real missionary is all about; being a blessing to those God puts before you...everyday.
