The Unexpected

This story by Jeffrey Walker, a Compassion Boston Bible Worker.

It’s often said in Bible Work that those you expect to follow-through and attend a seminar won’t, and those you don’t expect much from will be the ones who are the strongest attendees. One gentleman that I didn’t initially expect much from has proven to be a real champion of attendance. He has attended most of the nights and has assured me that he intends to make it to all the remaining meetings. As I’ve provided transportation for John,* we’ve gotten to know a bit about each other’s lives and have enjoyed some good conversations. I’m hopeful that as John—who is already a Christian—continues to enjoy the series he will lean on the Everlasting Arms to determine what God’s will is for him.
