this testimony from the International Leadership Academy in
a beautiful girl!" said a young man, who was standing
at the bus stop looking at me. It is always nice to hear a
compliment but that man was drunk. "I do not want to
speak with him,"- was my first thought. - "But I
can tell him about Jesus." The man asked my name. "Why
do you want to know my name?" - "You are the last
beautiful girl I see in my life. I am going to commit suicide,"
- answered the man. My knees began to tremble. You do not
often meet people going to commit suicide. "What happened
to you?"- I asked.
He told me his
story. It turned out that he came to Minsk from a small provincial
town to buy a cell-phone, but he was cheated. Now he did not
know any money, he could not even return home. The following
day he had to be at work, he was afraid to loose his job.
To find yourself in a big city without money - is a test.
The boy did not stand the test. At that very moment I remembered
Jesus' words: "I was hungry and you did not feed me."
I felt sympathy
with the man. For two days that man was hungry, lonely, he
needed help. I had some money, so I gave him 6 000 rubles
(3 dollars) to buy a ticket home. "You must be a Christian,
he said, you help me, but I am so dirty." "You need
not only money, you must know about Jesus", I said. I
began to look for my copy of the Four Spiritual Laws, but
could not find it in my bag. So I had to say "Jesus loves
you as you are. People can deceive you, they can let you down,
but not Jesus."
The man began
to cry and said; "I do not want to die, I want to be
with God here." I was shocked by the tone of his voice.
I still remember the attention with which he listened to me.
I hope this meeting will change his life. Even in such sudden
meetings the hand of God may lead us.
P.S. Always have
4 Spiritual Laws with you!
