My Name is Kathleen

A young woman stopped at our Bible table at the beach.  One of the guys was answering her questions and sharing the Lord with her.  Then I noticed her glance over at me.  She looked familiar.

After a while, she came over to me and said, “I feel I know you.”

I began to suspect where I had seen her before.  If she knew my first name she would know for sure.

I said, “You look familiar to me, too.  My name is Kathleen. Does that help?”

“Yes!  It IS you!”  Then she whispered, “I attended your Bible class when I was in jail!  Your Bible study was my first introduction to Jesus Christ.  I’ve been seeking a closer walk with Him ever since. I’m so happy to see you again!”

She updated me on her life and her new church. Then we prayed for her and her family. We loaded her down with helpful literature, I gave her a hug and she went on her way.

Thank You, Jesus, for allowing her to be encouraged today.  Thank You for her continued faith.  Continue to lead her and guide her in all her ways.  I pray in Jesus’ precious name, Amen.

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.
