WITNESSING IN DECEMBER - WAFFLE HOUSE RITA
In our journeys we eat out often and have many opportunities to witness. One morning we returned to The Waffle House after having been there about two weeks before. Our friendly waitress, Rita, was quick to greet us and say, “I really liked those papers you left last time. I was having a very bad time and when I read those words I was amazed and thought, God must be looking down on me.” She showed the literature to many of the workers and made them read them too. She said “That got me right back on track.” I asked her what she meant, and she said, “I started back to church because of those words.” We learned that she has returned back to the Pentecostal church that is near her house and is determined to “go all the way” this time!

Two Oriental people were seated and talking in their language. I walked over to them and asked, “What language are you speaking?” It was Mandarin, so I happily pointed to the Gospel story in their language. The woman was happy and thanked us several times. It is our strong desire to see souls saved.
May the Lord bring in many souls from the whitened harvest field. Jesus is coming soon and night cometh when no man can work. Now is the time to reach out to the lost. Will you do it?
