Just taking care of business....

Chad had an awesome and somewhat amusing experience last week that I wanted to share with you! He was in charge of a group in the territory in the mountains. The urge to go to the bathroom became overwhelming and so he decided to send the group on ahead while he "checked to see if anyone lived in a house back in"...even though he knew it was vacant. But, a good excuse, right? So, he did his thing...and as he was coming out from around the side of the house there was a man standing there. Guess what he asked him? "What is your business here?" (I just thought it was a funny irony since Chad had indeed been "taking care of business")

Anyway, Chad explained to him that he was one of Jehovah's Witnesses and that he was just checking to see if anyone lived in the house because we try to reach everyone in the area with our message. Surprisingly enough, the man was very pleasant! He mentioned that he had studied the Bible years ago with Evangelicals but had never talked to the Witnesses. He asked Chad what he thought, "Are we really living in the last days?" so Chad explained that to him and shared some scriptures. Then, he proceeded to tell Chad that he and his wife had been separated for a time, but were trying to get back together and that it was a challenge. They had just recently been talking about the need to study the Bible together to help their marriage! So, he asked Chad if he would study the Bible with them! SURE!!!

So, last Friday Chad went for the first visit, but the husband had to work overtime, so Chad talked to the wife and they have the study set up for this Friday! Just a cute story that I wanted to share!

Well, it's late and I gotta go to bed...we have had a few more good experiences I will try to write about soon! Miss you all!
