I do have a cool story to tell. I drove my car into a parked vehichle. Genius, right? Yes, as I was parking at the local market, somehow I managed to crash the back end of the station wagon thing I was driving right into the front driver’s side of a Honda or Toyota something. Great story, very cool, right?
Well, that’s not all. As my victim and I were talking and waiting for the insurance, he asked what I was doing in Thailand, (as does everyone obviously. I tend to stick out a bit here). I told him, and he said, “Wow. I have been wanting to know about Jesus for a while now, since someone else in my family became a Christian, but didn’t know where to find out.”
Ok, I can help you there, buddy.
We kept talking about what Christians believe, Are people good? Why did Jesus die? Is God real? Etc. Another guy that this guy knew because the guy was his superior in the military, (and we also knew because he attends out church), walked by and said hello. This guy was surprised we knew Him. We said sure, he’s a Christian. My accident friend was blown away. He said as we were leaving, “I believe God wanted you to crash into my car today – so that I could know more about Him.” That is unbelievable to hear from the mouth of a Buddhist guy in Thailand!!
Anyway, the next day he called and we talked and he said the same thing. The next Sunday he came to church – (invited himself with excitement too). We’ve met since and every time he suggests that we talk about spiritual things. He is excited to learn more.
Not an every day occurrence by any means. First time in life, as a matter of fact. I could get used to it. Bumping into to people who are excited to learn about God. I think our insurance company though, would not be as excited about it as I am.
