Boaz Baptist Chronicles

This weekend, while we went to visit the mall, for the first time in a very long time (intending to just to “hang out” and casually shop), I stumbled upon the mall’s ATT store and thought to myself it might be a good time to see what the new smaller/slimmer Ipad 3 looks like.
My son and I were paired off, at this point, from the rest of the family. We went in the store and were immediately greeted by an ATT employee. I told her I wanted to see what the new Ipad looked like. She quickly whisked us over to that area. After chasing some young people away from the display, she began to delineate in great detail the changes that were made from the second version to the third we were viewing, right before our eyes. I quickly stopped her promotion and tried my best to get on my Boaz Baptist site. I forgot that the flash player didn’t work with Apple products, and just as quickly was able to get to one of my on-line tracts. I started reading it out loud with great conviction and compassion, hoping she would listen with the same intensity. (I even asked her if she was okay with me reading it out loud to her, to which she silently agreed with a smile and a nod of her head.)
Well, the tract that I was able to quickly access was “Too Fat for You.” http://2fat4u.webs.com/ Frankly, it was all very comical. I was reading my tract to her as I’m, seated in my wheelchair, explaining to this young lady my disability and unwanted weight and giving her the Gospel, all at the same time. She knew that she was in this unwanted conversation for as long as my Bible tract was on the screen. Well, to make a long story short, I came to the place that said, “It’s obvious that I’m fat, but if you are lost in your sins you have a worse problem—a spiritual problem.” After finishing that sentence, I gave her my website and asked her to read more when she got home.
To be honest, I don't know if she was just being nice to me, so she wouldn't get in trouble, or if she was really interested in what I was saying. Either way, I thank God, He opens up enjoyable opportunities like this to give out the Gospel to a lost any dying world.
