proclaiming Christ at the dentist office

My co-worker, Jim Dixon, travels with me on PFC trips to Forks and eastern Oregon and Washington.  He sings his own music with a guitar and plays the piano as a gifted and passionate evangelist. We have enjoyed building a rich friendship together.   He sent me this evangelistic conversation with a dental tech--

"While at my dentist the other day. a new cleaning technician was doing my cleaning and introduced herself as "Shilo."  I asked her what her name meant and she said "gift of God."  As I began to speak of the Lord it was more obvious that she was not born again."

Here, Jim is sharing with a worker when we were visiting at Standing Stones clean and sober living ministry in Wapato.

"I gave her my testimony and she asked some questions and I gave her the truth and reality of Christ. As she was talking I felt that the Lord had a word to her and told her that that word was "surrender". She immediately told me that she knew that that was a word for her and explained why.

She also said that many Christians have of lately been talking to her of the Lord. It was a great day.  I was loving the opportunity to again speak to someone of His Great Goodness."

Acts 1:8 says, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."

...and at jails, prisons, schools, places where we work, and at the dentist's office.

Once again demonstrating that evangelism is doable, simply by living your life and telling your story. One of the most frightening things I ever read was from George Barna in his book Revolution: "The typical churched believer will die without leading a single person to a lifesaving knowledge of, and relationship with, Jesus Christ."
