A few weeks later, I visited my previous English pastor at Rhode Island. Before his congregation, he stood up and introduced me....
"This is Cliff. Did you know he sign a contract to God? [make a signature sign in the air] Do you hear that? He is going to serve the Lord fully."
I was sitting in the front, stunned and felt a bit embarrassed he put me on the spot.
Before I headed back to Mississauga, he told me (and my friends) that someday we would be missionaries.
That was about three years ago.
I visited him this summer. As we discussed how the Lord had been working in my life, I told him what he said three years ago...at that time, I was in dis-belief. Now it is foreseeable.
Funny how things can change in a short three years. How God can change one's heart.
The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.
