Sherut Na'eem Po! - Shtayeem (Nice Service Here!- Part 2)

Some wise words regarding making return visits...."Strike while the irons hot ". We want to help people when the interest is alive and sparking. When thinking about how fast return visits are made, it's pretty awesome if you could go back within the week of first talking to a person. Really awesome if you could go back within a few days.

When I last posted, my blog ended with the results of really being led by Jehovah- to a house full of refugees who were very grateful, and hungry for spiritual truths. A house that none of us had a call in. Really sticking out in my mind, is how they pulled chairs up closeby us, to hear what we had to say- eagerly leaning with wide eyes and big smiles. After a solid 20 minute discussion, we had to leave though, for we were on the way to the meeting for service when we met them in the first place- and it was almost going to start (Emile had to conduct). We only had one Arabic brochure (their mother tongue) to give them.

Well there was a group out that night, five came out and that was very nice to see! It just so happens we had a huge huge supply of literature in Arabic, and were trying to find those for whom could use it and appreciate it. So after conducting the meeting for service, Emile told the group in his French accent , "We have territories, but first we will make the fastest return visit"!

After telling everyone of our experience of what just happened, he armed us all with some "Amo" for our spiritual warfare. All 5 of us had about 5 books each, or brochures, bibles, even DVDs, a stack to carry! And off we went heavily armed with more soildiers! Haha! How surprised our friends were when they heard a knock on their door, and 5 of us this time walked in! We made a line and each took turns giving them what we had in our hands. They had an abudance for all their needs now, in their own language!

The "Shuukran" 's kept coming (the thank you's in Arabic) as we left their home. How happy they were to get such spiritual food! How awesome a feeling it was for us all- to have seen and experienced this together! We all got to have a share, a part in this experience.

Truly Jehovah's guiding hand is seen, is felt. Without him and his guidance this work is impossible. Results like this are proof of this fact. Amazing experiences like this go on EVERYDAY here...and are going on all over the world.

Hope you enjoyed reading this, mahalo for coming by! Stay tuned for part 3 of this blog if you want to hear the basics of how service goes on here, and updates of what's been happening lately. "Sha-LOHA"!
