Here’s an encouraging report from our DMV preacher, “Righteous Richard” Chavarria.
This past Wednesday, as my friend and I were leaving the Hawthorne DMV after preaching the Gospel as we do twice a week, we were handing out Gospel tracts to folks that may not have received one. As we handed one to a gentleman named Alex, he said that he attended Hope Chapel. I told him that I attended Hope, too.
At the weekend’s service at Hope Chapel, a man came up to me and said, “Hi, my name is Alex and I met you at the Hawthorne DMV.” He went on to say that while he was in line he made a call to his wife and said, “There’s a guy preaching at the DMV.” Alex said that what we were doing was “gnarly” and he could never do such a thing. He wanted to tell me that while he was in line there were about 15 different spiritual conversations going on all around him after I preached. Some folks said, “I don’t believe in God.” Others asked incredulously, “Do you believe what they’re saying?” Still others declared, “I believe in heaven and hell.” These where some of the conversations that Alex overheard.
I thanked Alex for sharing with me. I told him we never know what God is doing and that I was happy he took the time to share what was taking place and that it was encouraging. I know God was opening up the curtain and letting us know what he’s doing when the Gospel is preached.
