“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.” (1 Peter 3:15)
Many of us have experienced firsthand the business of airports from delays to canceled flights to lost luggage. It’s easy to complain about frustrating travels, but what if instead we viewed each delay as an opportunity?
Kim King, Director Of Client Services at Today's Choice Pregnancy Resource Center, found her plane delayed on the way home from California. After missing a connection in Boston, the airline flew her into LaGuardia and paid for a taxi to connect her to Newark.
King and her Executive Director talked to the driver as they traveled. They soon found out he had 5 children with 5 different women and was interested in the gospel message of hope.
“We had great dialogue and he had good questions for a full hour drive,” said King.
He wasn’t ready to trust Christ, but they shared the gospel utilizing their EvanTell training. Both ladies promised to pray for him and urged him to study the Bible more.
“So exciting that God worked out all those airplane and airport issues to put us in that cab with him!” said King.
