THE COLOR

ONE SURE THING

God can use any situation to spread the Gospel. Ryan Rempel of Give the Word shares a story of how God met a woman right where she was and answered her silent questions.

"This one lady called us from Toronto the other night and she just said, 'You know, I was in Selkirk a number of years ago and I was with my kid and somebody had left a Bible on my stroller when I was away from the stroller, and I came back I saw this Bible sitting there.'"

Rempel said the lady went on to say that it was so funny because it was at the exact time in her life where she was questioning if there was a God. She wondered who is He and how do we connect with God and then there was this Bible sitting on her stroller. She took the Bible home, started reading it and then started to fall in love with Jesus.

She shared with Rempel that she goes out every other night in Toronto driving around and sharing the Gospel in her community. She buys about 20 to 30 Bibles at a bookstore for $10 each per month with her own paycheque to hand out.

One day someone in Toronto mentioned to the lady about Give the Word in Winnipeg and suggested she give them a call. 

Rempel said she called and shared her story with him. "I was like, Wow! This is amazing! A Bible left on your stroller changed your life and now you're a missionary!"

Rempel said that he asked her how would it impact her if they could donate all those Bibles every month to her instead of her having to buy them every month with her own money? She told Rempel it would be absolutely life-changing.

Starting today, Give the Word is going to be sending her 20 to 30 Bibles per month and she's going to be out sharing the Gospel, starting conversations.

"She even has a friend of hers that drives her around in the evenings and they just stop and start having faith conversations with people," Rempel said.

He said that the lady said, "I wish so badly I could meet the person who left that Bible on my stroller because it completely changed my life."

Rempel said, "It really just goes to show that if you find talking to people about your faith uncomfortable, if you're not good with words, you know the Holy Spirit is able to completely do what we can't. So if all you can muster up to do is to give someone a Bible, man, God can totally use that."
