I was visiting with an older women who has come to church. She works with a member of our church named, Bado. I think that I have written about Bado before. He is a huge blessing to us. He has probably invited more people and has more visitors than about everybody else combined. The first time I met him, he told me that he didn’t want God. It is amazing how God can change lives. He thought that he could get to heaven by his good works. I invited him to church back in 2005, and he came. After the message, during the invitation he didn’t just raise his hand to say that he needed Jesus, but he stood up and told the whole congregation that he was lost and needed to get saved because for the first time in his life he realized that works would never save him. Even though his works can’t save him, you should see the works that he is doing since he trusted Jesus.

Our visit was a blessing. This lady worked with Bado for many years. She was born in Senegal. Senegal is highly Muslim. She came here and got married. Her husband died a few years back. She is in the process of retiring from her job. She had a friend come in at the same time. She introduced me as her pastor and began telling the other woman that she needed to come to church with us. The other women is a Muslim, not by choice but by marriage. I could sense her desire to come but she basically said that it would be impossible. I have decided that I like impossible situations because you know that it can’t be you but it must be God. Things that are impossible with man, are possible with God. AMEN!
