So I had an encounter with a young lady named Diane today.
Let me give a little background: members of international Youth Fellowship (IYF) are residing in Volta hall for their camp/conference. On Sunday morning, I met some of them who were registering participants. I asked to fully zip my dress up…when I was going for mass. They did so and Diane commented on my dress.
Then, on Wednesday morning, I met her again on my way to work. She remembered me and we chit chatted a bit. She told me all about IYF and invited me for their Christmas cantata which was scheduled to come off in the evening. She tried to convince me to attend and went as far as to take my phone number.. And this evening, she actually called back with the same request.
Now, I was just impressed by her tenacity and evangelistic spirit. Here is a Togolese young woman in Ghana going out of her way to invite me for a christian programme. Whether I attend or not, like in the parable of the sower, she has sowed her seeds and some are bound to bear fruit.
What about you and I? What are we doing with the word God has asked us to proclaim? Are we going out of our way to proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and inviting people to surrender their lives to Him?
