Two Family Members, One Heart
Hidden under his cowboy hat, feeling a little shy and with an aching heart,
the six-year-old boy was a ping-pong at Susan’s vendor table…
… multiple times looking, leaving and then coming back again.
An hour earlier, wandering alone past the various vendor tables, the mom of an active-duty deployed service member had also paused and inquired at Susan’s table. Receiving a Gospel of John, she began to pour out her heart— as only a mother can do. Susan revealed,
Concerned for the safety of her eldest son Body, deployed in a hostile and dangerous area,
this mom’s aching heart needed someone to listen, support, encourage her and pray.
She had come to the right place.
Positioned next to a vendor attracting children because they were giving away yo-yos,
Chaplain Susan hosted a table at a recent car show raising funds to prevent veteran suicide. She offered encouragement, prayer and the Gospel of John to young and old alike.
The six-year-old who had mustered up his courage
to be an ambassador for his brother—a soldier far away,
had been one of many who stopped and asked to have a Desert Camo Gospel.
A falcon ready to get the Gospel to his brother, the young boy was so proud to take several pocket testaments for both his brother and his buddies. Susan, the brave little cowboy and a couple of others on Susan’s team, prayed together asking God to protect his brother’s unit. When asked his brother’s name, the little cowboy nobly revealed it was none other than Body.
That day, God used a PTL Desert Camo Gospel
to comfort two family members,
with the same heart, for their beloved son and brother.
