Divine Appointment

Sometimes life is about Divine appointments, not about current circumstances. Recently, RMI president, Dan Shoemaker, was with a team in the mountains of Haiti where they found the road blocked by a landslide. In the long line of vehicles waiting with them for the road crew to rebuild the road was a UN truck and several UN peacekeepers. They struck up a conversation with one of the men who turned out to be from Africa. At the end of the conversation they gave him a Bible. A short time later his superior, a man from the Middle East, sought us out to ask, “Do you have another Bible? I want one too.” Dan dug his Bible out of the luggage and presented it to him, explaining the different features it had as a leadership study Bible. He said, “I’m going to read this! I have a friend who is a Christian and I’m going to ask him to explain it to me.” 

They were stuck on the road for 8 hours. They had things to do, places to go and people to meet. However, God used a landslide to stop them in their tracks so they could be in the right place at the right time, to be where He wanted them for a Divine appointment.

Who knows where it will lead. But the seed was planted in the most unlikely of places to the most unlikely of people.

I am always amazed and blessed when I see how the Holy Spirit uses situations to put people in contact with the Gospel!
