SMG: Day 30 March 18, 2008

Today I am going to tell you about a man in Cairo, let’s call him “V”.  We’ve known this cat for a few years now since moving to Cairo.  He was different back then.  V would stop by asking for a cold cup of water or sandwich – how can you pass that up?  I mean come on!  “Whatever you do for the least of these, you did it for me.”  V would mow Kristy’s lawn or or something as an offering of thanks.  Sometimes he would be clean, other times he would be hyped up on crack.  We always asked the Lord to give us hope for this man.  He has enduring love for him in the midst of his addiction.  V would talk about the Lord, he would talk about his love for Jesus and his desire to follow him.  Today he is different.  There has been some major deliverance in his life, by God’s grace.  This is the same man who ministered to the women on the street the other day.  Yeah, the same guy.  Now clean for eleven months.  Hallelujah!  We went over to the high rise apartment building to visit and pray with him.  Clear minded, communicating his heart of love for the Lord, talking about his desperate need for Jesus every day, and sharing scripture he clings to – our brother encouraged us by his testimony.  WOW!  A new creation in Christ.  As we prayed for him I was in awe of what the Lord has done in this man’s life.  A few times during prayer he knelt down in adoration telling the Lord how much he loved him. 

I believe he will be one of the laborers in Cairo gathering the great harvest. 

Release POWER in his testimony Lord.

Thank you for this new creation.
