It all began as an ordinary day in the large city of Toronto. My projects and deadlines filled my mind as I headed to the library on a "vacation" day to complete computer work and devotional time with God.
Walking next to me into the library was a young woman wearing a colourful head covering (face exposed)and jeans. I immediately drew from my limited knowledge and said to myself "moderate Muslim". Immediately within my heart was borne a sense of love for her and I realized that God was letting me know that He loved her. My shyness prevented me from walking up to her on the street so what to be done about speaking to her? Moments later I stepped from the cubicle in the women's washroom and saw that she was at the sink. She removed her head covering and then proceeded to wash her face, hands and stuck her feet in the sink. I immediately praised God for an opening and said, "Wow... you must be very warm and need to cool down!" She smiled gently and said, "I'm getting ready for my prayers." Immediately I responded, "Yes I'm planning to pray as well but I do not pray to Allah." How was she going to respond? In what way would she interpret my bold statement? In my zeal to share the Gospel ... I was waiting to see what God would do with my feeble attempt.
