The harvest is great, but the workers are few  (Matthews 9:37)

Alice called me that Felicia has been in the intensive care unit for three days, but the hospital was far away and Alice and I had trouble with transportation.

Lord, we are here, please send us

I met Felicia once about twelve years ago. For some reason we me again after six years, I took her to the church twice, then she came to the fellowship in my home a few times; there she was introduced to Alice.  Soon we gradually lost contact, and then recently Alice met her in the park and went to lunch together a few times.

Alice and I were disappointed because the person who promised to take us to visit Felicia cancelled his promise after we had waited two hours the very next day.

After a short discussion, Alice contacted pastor C from her church (based on language and location).  Pastor C has never met Felicia, and neither did he know me because I do not go to his church and I had only saw him three times in the past five years, nevertheless, he was willing to take us the following day.

A swelled right hand and a sallow face

Felicia had been transferred from the ICU to a different room.  She informed us that she was to be discharged from the hospital next day although that her legs and her belly were still swelling. The hospital did not do anything to her, but only gave her medications.  We could only guess the seriousness and the nature of her sickness based on the medications she is taking because she and her family had avoided talking about it.

The gospel, God’s power to save

Felicia told Pastor C that she went to a Christian school; she learned that we are sinners and Jesus came to die on the cross to pay for our sin; He was buried, and was resurrected on the third day, then Felicia confessed her sin, asked the Lord for forgiveness, and accepted Him as her Lord and Savior.

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Roman 10:9)

Lord, thank You for a willing heart, an opportunity to serve, the strength and ability to do good work.  All the glory and praise are Yours forever.  Amen.
