Here is the sweetest kind of letter anyone could write. A letter explaining how someone has come to Christ. Read, rejoice, and remember to keep praying.
Dear Praying Friends,
As some of you may have heard, Gloria Lynch was wondrously saved this past Sunday. She had been in the Warsaw hospital since Friday with pneumonia. Saturday she was very sleepy all day but on Sunday when I went in, she was alert and sitting in a chair eating her lunch. Since I had just come from church, I shared with her some of Pastor’s Father’s Day message, the key point being that in order for a man to lead his family he must first have a personal relationship with Jesus. I asked Mom if she wanted to ask Christ to be her Savior and she said, “Yes”. After explaining the gospel to her, I asked her if she wanted to pray with me and again she said,”Yes.” At this point, I realized with growing excitement, that God had blown open the doors of her heart! We prayed and now my 87 year old mother-in-law is a child of the King!!! We immediately called Pat on his cell phone, (Pat was on call that day), and Mom told him that she had just asked Jesus to forgive her of her sins. To God be the glory!
We thank Him for the very lucid moments He gave her (Gloria has Alzheimer’s disease) and the incredible openness to the Gospel which we have not seen before. So we humbly thank you all for your many prayers over the years on Gloria’s behalf because we saw clear evidence of it. Again, we are admonished to keep on praying for our unsaved friends and loved ones. Our hearts are full to overflowing and we can’t praise Him enough!
“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” II Peter 3:9
By His Grace,
Pat and Liese Lynch
Gloria was discharged from the hospital on Monday afternoon and is on an oral antibiotic for another 5 days. She is improving. We have observed a more peaceful demeanor as well, as we continue to reassure her of her Savior’s love and care for her.
