I treasure this message by Joni as she shares about witnessing to others. This is what God has given us as a mission here at FGGAM. I share JESUS all the time, in all my stops. You can to! At the grocery store, cafe, post office, bank, the park, all over! JESUS will help you, call on HIM! I have never had anybody, but one person in 10 years run away from me!!! LOL!!! Charles Stanley gives us ministry tools to use in our outreach! PTL! Forever grateful for all of our support!

Be a Witness

By Joni Eareckson Tada

God gave my friend Jennifer a burden for waitresses. Once every two weeks, Jennifer and her Christian friends regularly meet for lunch, but before they choose a restaurant, they pray. Once it’s decided where to lunch, they sit down and strike up a friendly chat with the waitress. They learn her name and ask for her suggestions from the menu.

Jennifer and her friends visit the same restaurant at least five times, asking the maitre d’ that they be given the same waitress. After so many luncheons, the women become friends with the waitress and invite her to church. Jennifer and her friends have been witnessing this way for years and after visiting scores of restaurants—and as many waitresses—they have seen fifteen women come to Christ.

Jennifer is only doing what’s required of her from Acts 1:8, so we shouldn’t think she’s amazing. But what is amazing is her creativity. She and her friends not only have fun together over lunch, but they make an outreach of it. Waitresses are, in fact, their main reason for getting together.

No matter where we go or whom we meet, we can have an effective outreach for Christ in our community. No, Jennifer will never organize a group called “Eating Out for Jesus,” or plan a budget or print up brochures. But she will keep on doing what comes naturally: being a witness for the Lord.

Lord Jesus, I want to be a witness for you today. I want to tell others of your love. Show me new ways to share your Gospel with others and use me to make a difference in my community.
