I was up at 2 am! I finished my laundry, unloaded the dishwasher, folded clothes, and finished packing for my trip to Ohio. Mrs. Gray was up at 3 and I fixed her a light breakfast. Have to keep the little lady happy! Ha!
I will be preaching for my good friend Dr. Tracy Fowler who pastors the HERITAGE BAPTIST CHURCH of Canal Winchester, Ohio. This man of God and his dear wife have been through some unbelievable struggles. They were in a car wreck and Mrs. Fowler has battled cancer. They are heroes to me!
I have had some problems with my AT&T wireless in my home so I have been on the phone for almost 3 hours attempting to have someone help me fix this problem. The last person I talked to was a technician from the Philippines. The lady's name was Diane.
After we finished our business she asked if I had ever been to the Philippines. I told her about traveling there with Dr. Jack Hyles and our preaching together in the Philippines. I then told her of Dr. Russell Anderson who has built over 100 churches in the Philippines for her people. She then told me that her mother was very religious. I then asked her if she knew for sure she would go to Heaven at death. She answered, "No!" Within a few minutes she prayed to trust Jesus Christ as payment for all of her sins. I encouraged her to go to one of the Baptist churches I had preached in at Manila. She thanked me and we ended our phone conversation.
It dawned on me when I hung up that those calls are recorded by AT&T. I then prayed that whatever supervisor listened to that recording would also ask Christ to save their soul! WOW! GOTTA LOVE SOUL WINNING!
