On Sunday morning, a member of the Gideon’s International spoke to our church congregation. We watched two video clips because the speaker told the technician the wrong title. We didn’t mind!
The first showed Tempe Brown’s testimony of how she came to Christ. As a single mom she needed to earn money and yet be home more than she was at the time working two jobs. She found out she could sing and she looked something like Cher decades ago. So she auditioned to sing for a rock band and made it.
Her girls were becoming wild and actually ended up in prison. She never felt so low in her life. As a singer, she spent lots of time in hotels. Most of them held Gideon Bibles. Eventually she picked one up and started reading it. She went into some detail and then she wiped tears away as she thanked the Gideon’s.
One of her comments, she met Christians that accepted her with love.
May God bless you. If you’ve never read a Bible, maybe you could pick one up somewhere and give it a try.
