Broken Glass

Broken Glass

We arrived safely in Knysna this morning to a very brisk wind! Cold, but very excited and thankful to be here. We took a quick tour of the Knysna area then headed to the township to meet Penny and Ella. The school children are on holiday so we had many encounters as we walked around the township. We made a stop in the library where there was a group of older kids gathered around a table. Lane did not hesitate to join this group and begin sharing the Gospel using the salvation bracelet (which he gave to each of them). The next stop was a newly built hospital/clinic. We decided to run in, but the visit was cut short by the sound of breaking glass. We ran out to our van to see the passenger side window shattered. Completely shattered with a large rock beside the tiny pieces of glass. A camera case was stolen along with Ella’s purse. What a horrible incident to an otherwise perfect day. A distraction that was obviously going to take some time to deal with. But a distraction that led to a time of planting seeds. While we were waiting on the police, Barb took advantage of the captive audience (of kids) to share the Gospel with them! Yes, all things working together for good. All things working to glorify Him. A distraction that initially robbed us of joy became one of our best opportunities. A broken window? So what. We will not let Satan rob us of the joy of open doors with one broken window!
