Wonby1 - Wendy’s Story: The Reward of Sharing the Gospel
Nicole was pregnant and that wasn’t a good thing. She felt loss, helpless, unprepared and didn’t know who to turn to. What was she going to do? How was she going to care for this baby? Nicole felt like she was out of options. She needed help. And that’s when she reached out...and met Wendy.
Wendy volunteers at The Nest pregnancy center in Jacksonville, Fl. She had recently begun leading a Bible study on the book of John at the center--sharing the Pocket Gospel This Book is Alive with women in crisis. When Nicole came in for help, Wendy began to share with her about God’s love. Nicole admitted that she knew God loved her, but she couldn’t understand why.
Wendy didn’t give up. She was patient. She showed Nicole love and understanding. And she gave her a copy of the Pocket Testament.
A week later Wendy saw Nicole again at the pregnancy center. Nicole had attended a church. She’d been saved! And she’d been baptized! Praise God!
Because of Wendy’s commitment to God’s Word and her love for women in crisis, God was able to work through Wendy to save the life of a woman and the newborn growing inside of her.
Equipped with Pocket-sized Gospels of John, Wendy is standing on the front lines ready to share God’s Word with people she meets everyday.
We hope this story encourages you as a member of The Pocket Testament League. Everyday, members like you are sharing God’s Word with people in need. People who are hurting, have lost loved ones, are dealing with depression, homelessness, drug addiction, broken relationships, and much much more. The people of this world are suffering and desperately need the healing that only a relationship with God can provide.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” (2 Corinthians 1:3)
It’s amazing to see how God uses one person with a willing heart for His purpose. You might be fearful of sharing the Gospel, but God can help you overcome that fear.
When Wendy first began sharing the Gospel, she indeed had to push through some fear in order to learn. But to her, overcoming the fear is worth the result of showing someone the beauty of the Gospel.
Wendy also offers encouragement that sharing gets easier over time and can even become “fun to see who God puts on your heart.”
Sharing Gospels has become so much a part of her everyday life that Wendy has signed up as a Living Water partner in order to receive a monthly supply of Gospels.
You too can share in a simple way by offering the Gospel of John as a gift. Then, you can leave the rest up to God.
When it comes to sharing, Wendy reminds us that we have the greatest gift of all time. She says, “knowing that you did what He [God] asked you to do is greater than the fear.”
We encourage you to grab a Pocket-sized Gospel of John before you head out for the day. You never know what opportunities God has planned for you to share His Word. Use pocket-sized Gospels as your go-to tool for showing others the way to salvation.
