Steven & Lisa Rief, Redland, OR

Early one morning a stranger knocked on our door. Steve opened the door to find a homeless man carrying a large backpack containing all his belongings. He was stranded after a falling out with friends and was trying to find his way home. He gratefully accepted Steve’s offer of a ride.

On the way, Steve shared the gospel with him. At first, the man was not receptive to talking about God and began to argue. Steve calmly and patiently answered his questions and continued to gently explain about Christ’s great love for him. Finally the man admitted, “You have given me a lot to think about. Thank you.”

Steve dropped him off at the train station. We are praying that this brief encounter might plant the seed that will lead to this stranger’s salvation and eternity in glory.
