The following testimony comes from Greta, one of our ministry friends who has been using the “May I Ask You a Question” tract as a tool for several years.
I met a girl in jail last year. I recognized her from a mug shot from the InForum. It was a big story because one of our police dogs found her in a garbage can after a chase in North Fargo.
Last Saturday night I went to [visit at a] jail [again], and she walked in and said, "Greta! Do you remember me?! I used to have blonde hair!" And of course I remembered her—and God graciously helped me remember her name—right that very moment.
We sang worship songs and I was half way through our lesson and out of the blue she got really upset and left the room. The details don't matter, but after church the officer came to see what happened. We talked a bit and I asked if I could talk with the girl and just follow up. They went and got her and we visited for about an hour. She described that she is lost and she's searching for God. Lots of questions and a very soft, teachable heart. At the end of our night she prayed to Trust Jesus as her Savior. She cried and just had the biggest smile. "Even though I'm in jail, I have found forever freedom!"
I wrote down some verses and notes and I told her, "When you get back to your cell, write this in your Bible. "January 21, 2017 I trusted Jesus as my Savior and when I die, I get to spend eternity in heaven with Jesus!'"
She looked up at me said, "Seriously? Today is January 21? That was when I was arrested and brought to jail last year!"
I think it's crazy cool that God brought me together with this young lady. I pray that her faith in Jesus is contagious and that she can’t help but shout it from the rooftops that she has found new life in Jesus.
Luke 15:7 says, “I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”
Last Saturday = Best. Party. Ever.
Thanks for celebrating with me, to GOD be the glory!
