Marcy S., age 51, North Carolina

Thank you, Lord, for helping me to write these cards and especially the letter to Uncle Richard, who wrote on the back of his 88th birthday picture, “My only companions are a TV, a radio, a bottle of bourbon, my pipe, and a dumb Mynah bird, and no one to warm my back.” How sad and lonely that sounded, even though he’s always been a very independent man, worldly and self-sufficient. I felt a longing to share the Companion I’ve found and told him how I met Jesus Christ, alive and real in all His power and glory though Rock Church. Oh Father God, prepare Uncle Richard’s heart to receive this good news and bring him into you Kingdom very soon, for Your honor and glory.
