A Call!

I was at an elder’s meeting on Monday night and my phone rang.  When I’m in a meeting I don’t typically answer the phone, unless it’s my wife or one of my kids.   So I let the call go to voice mail then the church phone rang just a moment later.  My friend Glenn answered the call and it was for me.  He too knows that I don’t typically take calls during our meetings so this one had to be important.

It was Larry, he was excited and he wanted  someone there with him to speak to me.  Her name was Mandy and she too sounded excited about something, but I didn’t know who she was or what really was going on.  It’s hard for me to express the joy I felt when she shared with me that she had prayed to receive Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.  Mandy told me that she would be coming to church soon and I can’t wait to welcome her and express again how happy I am that she is now a child of God.

Taking phone calls during scheduled meetings is rude- but there are some calls that warrant interruption.  Thanks Larry for your persistence- I was blessed to hear the good news about Mandy and I look forward to meeting our new sister soon.

Love in Christ, Jim
