2/10/12 Jose and Rosario, both about 30
It was cold and snowy on my way home from work yesterday, but people still need to hear the Gospel so I decided to take my witnessing indoors. I looked in the window of a laundromat and saw that it was full of people so I stopped to see what the Lord might do. The first person I talked to there was a man named Jose who was doing his laundry with his wife, Rosario. His faith in God begins and ends with his occasional visits to mass at their Catholic Church. He doesn't read the Bible on his own; in fact he doesn't even have one. He simply trusts that if he tries to be good - like go to church - he will be rewarded in the next life, so we talked about the impossible standard that being "good" requires. He believes God should just forgive us when we ask, so I explained how God's justice can't be bought with cheap apologies. The cost was great - His own Son, Christ crucified - and available for those who repent and believe. I gave them a Bible and was rewarded when I looked again in the laundromat window - this time instead of just people mindlessly doing their chores I now saw a man and his wife intently reading God's word.
