Anthony Joseph

I was up at 4 am this morning. Had my quiet time and then went 4 miles on my treadmill and then ate a little breakfast. I loaded my bags in the car and watched a little of the replay of last nights NCAA March Madness. I was glad to see Michigan State pull one out! I thought for a minute they were going to lose the game. Assistant Pastor Bob Queen picked me up and off to Shreveport airport we went. It takes about 50 minutes for the trip from my house to the airport in Shreveport, La. I have traveled so much that the agents know me and it makes for a lot of fun to be able to joke with them. I boarded the American Eagle fight to DFW and then boarded a US Airways flight to Charlotte, NC. Sitting next to me was Anthony Joseph who just finished boot camp and was going to Virginia Beach, VA. We chatted for a while and then I handed him one of our church Gospel tracts and presented the Gospel to him. He listened intently and then after a few moments he bowed his head and took me by the hand and prayed to trust Christ for the payment of all of his sins. It was great! I have a soft spot in my heart for these service men! Some of the finest men and women we have are volunteering to protect our nation. It is amazing! This is not a conscripted army! These men and women are the real heroes. I thanked him for loving our country and he very kindly said, "Thank you sir for caring about me!" GOTTA LOVE SOUL WINNING!
