The color Orange is rare in a rainbow. That is, it's more obscure than say, purple or yellow. Some of the most beautiful things in life are not always the obvious. One day a lady came up to my gospel tent wheeling a bent and deformed young woman in a wheelchair. Because she could not look up, and therefore I couldn't see her face, I assumed that it was impossible to communicate with her.
The other lady and I carried on a conversation for while about the what it means to be “born again” – a question I often put to people who stop by to see what I'm all about. I was showing her one of my banners inside the tent which asked the question, “Are you 50, 75, or 100% sure you're on your way to Heaven?” when I heard a sound coming from the direction of the wheelchair. It took me a minute to realize the younger woman was speaking. I asked her what she had said.
Straining to make her voice louder, she thanked me for being there and for doing what I was doing. I said, “ Are you a believer?”
“Yes.” she answered. “I know I'm going to heaven someday and I'm looking forward to it.” She attempted a smile that drew my heart toward her.
“God bless you, I would appreciate your prayers for me as I continue in this ministry.” I said. And as I thanked them for stopping by, I knew that although the older lady was not interested in talking further the younger woman – in spite of her outward unapproachable appearance and obvious suffering, would be praying for her and maintaining a witness before her.
