"This is an historic day in my life..."
I’ll never forget his parting words, "I’m going to tell people about this. I’m going to spread this like Johnny Appleseed spread them apple seeds!" This is the story...I passed a man sitting by the interstate with his duffle bag, sleeping bag, and a cooler. I felt drawn to him-pulled over, got out and met Arthur. He was a gentle Native American from Arizona. I invited him to have dinner. We shared a meal, talked about the origin of the universe, the earth, and mankind. It was amazing how God was opening the door for the gospel! I told him of God’s love for him and shared the the plan of salvation. I asked him if I could pray with him, and he said, "I was just about to ask you if you would." Arthur tearfully surrendered his life to the Lord. After I prayed, Arthur said, "I’d like to try and pray." And did he ever! He said, "God, this is a historic day in my life. I will never forget it and I will thank the Good Lord until the day I die that David picked me up today." He said, "Lord, now I know that you love me and you will be with me 24/7 for the rest of my life." We hugged and rejoiced! I’ll never forget his parting words, “I’m going to tell people about this. I’m going to spread this like Johnny Appleseed spread them apple seeds!"
