I just have to share an unusual phone call we received yesterday. A student phoned from Cincinnati Christian University and said he'd been reading the latest Proclamation in the periodical dept, and he just had to have a copy of it. He said he couldn't take the one he was reading home with him, and he really needed a copy.
He further said he was writing a paper on God as spirit, and he needed that particular magazine. I asked him how he came to find Proclamation, and he didn't directly answer but said he had noticed it addressed Adventists...and said his wife used to be Adventist.
Turns out they were both from Zimbabwe, and his wife now attends a Christian church, but he said she still has understandings that are different.
I added his name to our list, directed him to the online archives, and told him I'd be glad to send him a copy of the last issue. Sometimes I am so surprised how people find Proclamation and how God directs them to it. I didn't even know Cincinnati Christian University was on the mailing list!
There are so many people processing Adventism...and so many of them are not likely to be "found" easily. Praise God He knows them and how to help them find what they need!
I just had to share such an encouraging surprise!

I have goose bumps reading this! Wish we had "Like" buttons here! Nothing is too hard for God; all things are possible! How awesome when He lets us have a glimpse & a part in something He is bringing about!

God knows who is searching for the truth and makes sure the proper paths cross. Praise God for this "God Incident".

LIKE! God is Good!! This is exciting. I love the phrase in the Chronicles of Narnia, "Aslam is on the move." Well, "God is on the move. He is alive and well."

Please invite him to our local FAF study. West Carrollton is less than an hour from the middle of Cincinnati. And I live in even closer.

OH! I'll see if I can remember his name and come up with his address. That is an excellent idea!
