Heaven is rejoicing!

"Today salvation has come to this house ... For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." Luke 19:9-10
My dad accepted the Lord yesterday morning!!!! My brothers and all our families are gathering Saturday in honor of Mother's Day, and we can't wait for Dad to share his news firsthand. Needless to say, there has been a lot of rejoicing going on. Thank you, faithful friends, for your prayers. God has heard and answered, praise Him!

Praise the Lord for His patient mercy. You kept asking and kept presenting the Lord to your Dad and God rewarded your faithfulness. I can't imagine the joy you must be feeling.

Connie, I am just catching up and what a wondrous surprise this morning! Our God is so GOOD! That He slowly and diligently worked on your Daddy's heart, to let him know that He is real, He is with us at all times, He has our lives in His mighty hands. I know this is great comfort for you, but I also think what a comfort this must be to your Daddy. I rejoice for your entire family, for all the blessings showered down upon you.
