We went over the top on the chart challenge yesterday. The offer to match gifts up to $1K has actually been exceeded already. It's amazing to realize that over 600,000 of the Rightly Dividing the Word charts are in circulation. And that just the number we have a record of--there were several printings that we don't have the actually number of copies printed in our files.
Interestingly I had two unrelated emails today from two different people--in two different parts of the world--telling how they came to see right division through the chart and the booklet, The Key To Understanding the Bible (which teaches the chart in short-hand style). So it will soon be back on the shelf--another 100,000 strong!
Life goes on: this morning Cynthia got a call from Nathan (our 4 year old grandson in FL) telling her he wants to move to Chicago and marry grandma. Sort of leaves me out in the cold! She has been longing to go back to Florida to see the boys, but is shut up to enduring life with me. We look forward to seeing the FL and AZ kids in July. Their parents are optional.
I made school radio today and prepared for the trip to Detroit tomorrow to do five TV programs. Cynthia spent most of the day filling CD & DVD orders. She left another 25 copies of second year GSB DVDs on the duplicator when she left for home. Now she is finishing up my mail. Someone told me they notice by my posting times that we work late into the evening. Hey, what else is new!
I had the opportunity to introduce a 37 year old man to Christ this afternoon. It was thrilling to see the scales fall from his eyes as he heard the gospel for what he said was the first time. He said he had thought "Christians had two brains: one lost and the other out looking for it!" After he gave me permission to share the gospel with him, he listened intently and when asked if he would like to trust Christ, he simply said, "Yes." Now to see him grow!
What a benediction to be able to use our time in even small ways to honor the One Who loved us and gave Himself for us!
