Andrew gave his life to Christ less than a year ago. Since then he has regularly been praying for his family, wanting to see them come to know Jesus like he now does. In early December, I gave Andrew the book Prodigal God by Timothy Keller. After reading it, he liked it so much that he passed it on to his mom, hoping she might decide to read it. To his delight, she did.
After finishing the book, she started attending the local Southern Baptist church. She enjoyed it so much she began to go every weekend on her own. Then Andrew’s step-dad, who had shown the least amount of interest in ever attending a church, decided that he did not want his wife to go alone. He started going to church as well. Over the course of the last few weeks, most of Andrew’s family is now hearing the gospel regularly and doing family Bible studies. It has been an incredibly sweet story and answer to prayer.
