An Auxiliary Testimony From The Witness In Action At The 2012 International Convention

by The Gideons International on August 7, 2012

In Dallas, Auxiliary member, Rhea Clunan, shares a New Testament and the Gospel with Wanda who that day accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior.

“Did you get one?” I asked Wanda as I handed her a Personal Worker’s Testament (PWT) from The Gideons International. This opportunity had arisen during a Witness In Action distribution in Dallas on July 20th at the 2012 International Convention.

As Wanda reached for the PWT, I explained that I was an Auxiliary member of The Gideons International and that this was a free gift to her.

“It’s a New Testament,” I said. I opened it to show her the “Where to Find Help,” section explaining that we all face challenges. I showed her the Scripture verse and page number references. Then I explained the back section.

“This holds the answer to the most important question you could ever be asked,” I said. As she looked at me, I took that opportunity to ask her if she knew what that question might be. She said she didn’t know.

I asked her, “If you were to die today and face Heaven’s Gates, when they ask why should they let Wanda in, what would you say?”

She hesitated and said, “You’re not going to believe this but I’m waiting for the train to take me to my chemotherapy treatment.” It turned out that she was originally diagnosed with cancer in 2004, and it went into remission. But now it had come back.

I was speechless. I know that God spoke through me when I told her, “God loves you so much and He wants you to have peace.” That was why He had sent me there.

“Are you ready to accept Jesus as your Savior,” I asked. She said yes. Next, I asked Wanda if I could pray for her. Through my tears, I prayed for Jesus to heal her body of this horrible disease.

Brothers and sisters, please pray for Wanda, for her health and for God’s mercy to flow through the hands of her medical team.

What’s awesome about our God is that we can pray for anyone, including Wanda, without knowing her! We know her needs, and that’s all that matters! Father, I ask, in the name of Jesus, that You will touch Wanda, even now, and heal all the areas that have that need; and that, Your peace that passes all understanding, will flow into her and she will know that You have touched her.
I ask because I know and believe that You greater than anything that can ever come into our lives and I thank You for answering even at this moment; in Jesus name. Amen and amen!

We serve a mighty God and I am thankful that His ways are not our ways and His time is not our time. I pray the Lord’s will be done in Wanda’s body and soul. As “Workers for Christ” we need to all make sure we are available and open to every opportunity to spread the life saving message of our savior Jesus Christ.
