This story by Destinie Candis, a Compassion Boston Bible Worker.
Last week while following up leads, we met a guy who was charging his phone outside one of the units. We asked if the people who lived in the apartment were home, and he said he didn’t know.
This week, when we returned, he was outside charging his phone again. We struck up a conversation with him, and he asked what we were doing. We told him we were a part of an organization called It Is Written that was involved in getting people into the Bible and giving Bible studies. He said, “That’s what’s up.” Karen then asked him if he would like a study. He declined, and we went again to see if the lead was home.
The lead was not home, so we made our way back around the corner. While we were still near the door of our lead, I felt compelled to offer the guy charging his phone a GLOW tract. After I gave it to him, he opened it up and looked at it as we were walking away. I don’t know if he read the whole thing, but I hope a seed was planted, and maybe next week we will be able to converse with him again.
