Last Sunday morning our men were praying specifically for courage to share the gospel in their daily lives. Alex prayed for that, knowing that his tendency towards shyness often kept him from sharing his Savior with others. One day this week he stopped at the bakery for bread. The usually bustling store was strangely empty. As he asked for bread, the attendant commented on how cool his bracelet was. Taken by surprise at the opening God was giving him he stood stunned for a moment. As the attendant went back to get the bread, Alex gathered his thoughts and was ready to use his gospel bracelet to share the good news with this lady.
Alex took home several more bracelets to give out to people he comes in contact with on a regular basis. He is praising the Lord for this special answer to prayer, courage to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
