The occult priest began visiting our college campus Bible table weekly. He was not a student, but he’d come on campus to hang out with his buddies at the witchcraft table, and to see us.
He was no longer angry with us Christians, but came to us with theological questions. Sometimes we didn’t know the answer and we’d tell him we’ll try to find an answer, and we would try. He’d often pick through the free literature on our table. He’d read it for a while and usually ask if he could take it with him.
He did this for several months and then we did not see him again—that is, until two years later. One day he suddenly appeared at our table. We were so happy to see him, I even called him by his first name.
He said, “You remember my name?”
I said, “I remember the names of people I pray for.”
“You’ve been praying for me?”
“Yes! You’re my friend and I care for you.”
I’m sorry to say we never had the privilege of leading him to Jesus, but I believe seeds were planted. For one thing, he stopped thinking of us as the enemy. In fact we were friends.
