A Vital Decision

During one of our health teachings this week, we prepared the story of Lazarus and the rich man. We read the story to about 68 women at the clinic. We then asked them some pretty tough questions about heaven and hell. We shared that because we have made decisions to ask the Lord into our hearts and make him the Lord of our lives, we can be assured of our place in Heaven with Him one day. As each woman came up to get their vitals checked after the story, Kat and Amy asked them each if they knew where they were going if they died today. Two women were not sure and wanted to know more about the gospel and salvation. We were able to share the gospel fully with them, and explain what the steps of salvation are. They both stated that they wanted to do what we were telling them about, so we got the opportunity to pray with each of them!

We are really hoping to follow up with these women as they continue to come for prenatal visits. One of the moms is due pretty soon, so we are praying that we will be able to connect with her again, and hopefully get to visit her on an outreach day! Please pray for the 2 mothers we talked with, and the many others who hear our stories but may not have the courage to speak up.
