Couldn’t Get to the Door

This story written by Crystal Phillips, a Compassion Boston Bible Worker.

My story for this week made me jump up and down!

A man named Jose mailed in a Bible Study Request card in January. My fellow Bible Worker Richard had been trying to find Jose at home for a few months, but had no success. He gave me the card hoping that I’d be able to find him home. I kept trying the address—multiple times at varied times and weekdays—but could never catch him.

One day this week, I decided to try again. I was surprised when Jose answered his call box. He let me into the building and when he answered the door, he was in a wheelchair. He remembered mailing in the card and was still interested. He said that he remembered hearing the call box being buzzed a few times, but that he had been in bed with no way to answer the door because he's a quadriplegic. He was interested to learn more about God, and I very much look forward to studying with him.
