Worship Workshop

blog2016-36

Nothing like going to church and getting your purse stolen!!! Today Final Harvest did a “Worship Workshop” with 5 churches in Holbrook, AZ. Half way through the seminar at lunch, mom went back into the sanctuary to get her purse and it was gone! Thankfully, just minutes before, Pam had taken the RV keys out of mom’s purse or else we could have risked the possibility of our RV being stolen… Although mom’s phone, credit cards, cash, prescription sunglasses and identity were still in the purse! While we were looking everywhere Pastor Jeff Johnson encouraged us to call the cops. We did notice a elderly Navajo man with a black backpack just hanging out outside the church next to our RV. Since the church feeds the less fortunate I guess it wasn’t out of the ordinary to see someone lingering outside the church… but it was a little suspicious. Bobby suggested we stop our workshop and ask the Lord to help and be loosed in this situation… The cops came back in like 30 minutes or so, holding mom’s purse!!! They had retrieved it from the Navajo man’s duffel bag! He was in handcuffs in the back of the police car. The first thing they had mom do is check to make sure everything was still in her purse, which PRAISE the LORD, it was!! Then they proceeded to ask up to 3 times if mom would press charges. Mom really felt in her spirit, and Pam confirmed it, that the Lord wanted us to show mercy. She gave him a bible and salvation bracelet to put in his backpack (in place of her purse) and was able to talk to the man. She told him that it was wrong to steal, but that she was going to extend mercy because that is what Jesus has done for her! She told him how much Jesus loves him and told him to read his new Bible and she’d be praying for him too! What a day!!!
