“For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation”
(2 Cor. 6:2.

Mrs. Walters lay in her bed and turned from side to side. She worried about her illness. What if she died? Where would she go? she may have thought as she lay there.

Her church wanted much money to pray for her. Would it really do any good? Perhaps she pondered.

In the meantime a missionary's wife tried to talk to her Laguna Indian neighbor, Mr. Walters, about the Lord. He seemed indifferent. She felt like she talked to a brick wall.

When his church informed Mr. Walters of the vast sum he required to pray for his wife, he listened intently to Mr. Wallace, the missionary, when he spoke about his Saviour.

He told him how we have all gone astray like lost sheep. “Just like a sheep,” he said, “None of us can come home by himself.” The Bible says, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done” (Tit. 3:5).

“God did not leave us without hope,” he continued. “Just as a shepherd may risk his own life for his sheep, Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, came and laid down His life for the sheep.” The Bible says, “Behold, the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

“When we receive the Good Shepherd as our Saviour, we become His sheep. Would you like to be one of His sheep, Mr. Walters?”

“Yes, I would,” Mr. Walters responded.

After he received Jesus Christ as his Saviour, Mr. Walters expressed concern for his wife. “Will you go visit my wife in the nursing home?” he asked. “She's very sick.”

The next day Mr. Walters traveled with the Wallace's to visit his wife. After her husband gave his testimony in Laguna, Mrs. Walters received Jesus Christ as her Saviour, too. Two weeks later she left earth for her heavenly home.

How happy I am that my husband and myself shared good news of our Saviour with the Walters! If we had waited long, we would have missed an opportunity for eternity.


Lynn and Leon met Mr. and Mrs. Walters, Laguna Indians, when serving as missionaries with the Navajo Indians in New Mexico. Mr. Walters lived in the same apartment complex as the missionary.
