I told the policeman, "I love you."

Today, I rode my motorcycle for my visits. Under a huge shade tree there was a group of 10 or more police or soldiers. It's hard to tell the difference, they were wearing camouflage clothes and were carrying machine guns. This fellow that stopped me was insisting that I had to give him a "gift." I replied that I don't give money, but Scripture booklets to police or soldiers on the side of the road. He asked me why I was giving him the Scripture. I replied, "Because I love you. I gave up my comfortable life in the United States of America to come here and share the Word of God, which is more valuable than money."

Before I left the soldier/policeman, we talked about where he went to church. He's a Catholic. I told him I wanted to see him in church on Sunday. He said OK. Then he walked over to the group of men to tell them about his experience with the pastor and to pass the tracts around. I know because it took me a minute to put my helmet back on and leave. They all waved goodbye.

Heavenly Father, we thank you for giving Mike this divine opportunity to share Your love with these soldiers or police. Give these men a burning passion to read Your Word. Holy Spirit, lead them to the cross of Christ for salvation.
