A stop at the Bus Station

It seems so small, giving a lunch to a hungry person, maybe to a lonely hurting person, but a person nonetheless, a person God gave his Son for. On this night I met a man from Turkey named Ferundun, sitting by himself waiting for a bus to Buffalo, then off to NYC. I gave him 2 lunches and a Bible tract, he looked at me and asked why? I said “to be kind”, I went on to explain about God’s kindness shown in giving his Son, in order to bring us back to God. I asked him if he believed in Jesus, since he comes from an area where most are Muslim. He said that friends in Michigan told him about Jesus, and he believes in their Jesus. He eagerly took a new large print Bible from me, took a selfie of us together, and gave me his phone number. Though one day I want him to say my Jesus, and to receive life in his name, I realized the meaning of this scripture. “It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. 1 corinthians 3:7.
