Today I had more field placement and in the classroom, on the teacher's aide's desk was an index card with scripture references. "That's cool, is she a Christian?" I thought. However, under the index card, was a book. I don't remember the title, but it ended with "for the spiritually curious". (And I know this sounds like I was snooping, but I wasn't, the desk is in the room, not an office, and the book was in the open, not in a drawer or anything.) On Sunday, in the UC Class the topic was on evangelism, and Pastor Arie just did a great job stressing the importance and talking about it. So, I have no doubt this is God giving me an opportunity in the most obvious way. However, the timing was bad when I saw the book, as I didn't have time to talk to her about it. I am hoping to bring it up Wednesday when I go back for my final day, but I'm not going to lie: I'm scared to death. This type of evangelism is really hard for me.
I am asking you all to please pray for me. That if the opportunity arises (as in, she has the book out again) I will take it and be able to tell her the gospel, and perhaps even invite her to our Easter service. I'm already getting exciting about the possibility, but I'm nervous. Based on my track record, I will throw another opportunity away. I really need God's help- and your prayers. I don't want to live constantly making excuses.
Thanks so much, in advance, for your prayers!
