We were on a crowded train in France when I found an empty seat next to a university student from Senegal.
He ignored me until I said, “Bonjour!” I then offered him a “Good News” comic book in French.
He said, “Parlez-Vous Francais?”
I smiled, “Anglais.”
He quietly read the booklet. When he finished he said, “This is important information! I am a Muslim and we too believe in Jesus. This tells the importance of making ourselves ready for the next life. This life we now live is only temporary. Please! I would like to send this to my wife in Senegal.”
I said, “Please do.”
With his permission, I wrote two websites on the back of the booklet: www.MuslimJourneytoHope.com and Godlife.com/ . Then he took out his wallet and showed me pictures of his new baby.
“Thank You, Lord, for arranging this meeting and giving this precious young man an open heart.”

[This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?
