This is an email that I received from my administrative assistant:
Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed P.I.E. [Evangelism, Intercession, Pizza] on Saturday. I had never been out to evangelize. I have only really talked with family or friends about my Christianity and to be honest, most of them just blew me off, told me I was wrong, that I was a fanatic, or told me I had gone over the the edge with my Christian beliefs. I wasn’t afraid to tell people—I just didn’t know how to. But I have had a burning in my soul to go out and tell others what I know, and knew that it was something God called me to do.
Off we went to the Strand in Hermosa… we began passing out million dollar bill gospel tracts and some took them with excitement and some said no thanks. Then God opened the door when we began to speak to a young lady named Tatianna… we asked the million dollar question [which is, “If you were to die today, would you go to Heaven or Hell?”], and as she told us about her life of sin, she giggled as if it were a joke. When we told her the penalty for her sin, her attitude totally changed and her eyes filled with tears. When we told her the good news about Jesus, she started rubbing her arms and telling us she had the chills—which was really strange since it was about 100 degrees out there. We asked her if she would like to pray and she said yes. Right there in the middle of the Strand with 100’s of people passing by, we prayed for repentance, forgiveness, and for Jesus to come into her heart; it was the most awesome miracle God has ever let me see And what a privelege it was to be used by God for something like a life being saved.
It was the easiest thing I have ever done, even easier then talking to my own family. For those people who say they can’t do it for any number of reasons, I want to say to you: “Yes you can! It is something that all of us should be doing, because God has told us go into all the world and preach the gospel. This wasn’t a statement for some of us;
it was for all of us.
