A few years ago, staff member Jon and his wife Tammy met Laurie,* a Jewish woman, at a Christian wedding they were attending. As it turns out, Jon and Laurie attended the same high school. Jon, Tammy, and Laurie continued to chat and get to know each other, but once Laurie found out that her new friends were Messianic Jews, she abruptly walked away. Tammy and Jon stood there shocked!
Fast forward a few years. Recently, Jon was finishing up one of his shifts at the hospital where he serves as a chaplain, and this particular day he stayed unusually late. He started talking to a new volunteer who was just beginning her shift. They made introductions and the woman said, “I know you, I met you at the wedding!” At first Jon didn’t remember her, but later he realized that this was the same woman who walked away from him and Tammy a few years before! The Lord works in awesome ways and clearly God did something to change Laurie’s desire to hear the Gospel!
