It never gets old! Leading people to Christ is a precious privilege! New men come to the prison camp all the time. I have made it a little ministry for my years in prison to try to intercept the new guys and give them a tour and take away some of the anxiety that comes with walking in the prison doors. I also try to witness without pushing too hard.
August 11, I gave three new guys a tour, answered questions, and made sure they had the little stuff they needed. The next morning, I was in the chapel by myself working on my time lines (I love visuals!) and one of the new guys came in as well as another man who has been here for over a year. They were looking at my seven-foot-long charts and began asking questions about end times. Everyone with a brain can see world events look bad and they are wondering, “What on earth is about to happen?”
One thing led to another and they both accepted the Lord! It was great! It never gets old! Forty-two years ago I led my first soul to Christ at the Heart of Illinois Fair and was hooked! I asked the Lord if I could do that the rest of my life. God has been s-o-o-o-o-o good to allow me to do this over and over for the past forty-two years. I hope I get forty-two more years!
If you have never led anyone to Christ, do it today. MANY are listening that would never have listened before. This is indeed a GREAT time to win souls and win crowns! The harvest is plenteous but the laborers are few. He that winneth souls is wise!
Stay the course.
