The Lily of the Valley - A special little girl



The second part of my series - 'Has Anyone Ever Told You...?' is coming out by God's grace by the end of March 2015. This is the story of a special young girl named Lily. Her parents Josh and Karen waited nine years for the fruit of the womb. During this period, they met a couple; Funke and Mike who led them to the One with answers to their problem and who taught them how to get the best of the best. As Josh and Karen waited for God's perfect timing, they took Him at His words to 'ask and it shall be given unto you'. They could never have imagined the extraordinary little girl that came into their lives.

I give Almighty God all the glory for the inspiration for these stories which started from a burning in my heart for spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. I take the train to work everyday and I meet countless souls in the course of the day. Telling someone about Jesus in a crowded and noisy train is a challenge and one definitely need even more grace to break people's concentration on their Ipads/Ipods/Cellphone etc. 

One day, on my way to work, I imagined a young lady who was passionate about winning souls but lacked the confident to do it alone. I imagined what if God gave her a partner? And through this partnership, many train commuters are brought to the saving grace of our Lord Jesus. So, I put words on paper and the series was born.

How did I come about the title? The mission of my home church is Revival and in the past year, we have had series of training on evangelism. One of the methods we have been using was the gospel soul wining script by Pastor Rodney Howard Browne which starts thus...' Has anyone ever told you that God loves you and that He has a wonderful plan for your life?' This is a powerful statement that even if the person was not interested in God, you would have planted that seed of love in their heart. The script is available here  http://www.revival.com/revapp/downloads/script_en.pdf


I hope that you will get a copy of the book and be blessed by it. All proceeds from the book goes to We CAN Foundation; supporting widows, orphans and missions ; further information available at www.we-can-foundation.org .
