Metal Wheels Skateboard

Zahar'sI pitched my easel to paint en plein air. I was at the bus stop across from Zahra’s book store.

A young man came rolling up on his skate board and plopped down on the bench. “I had a skate board with metal wheels,” I said to him. I knew this would get his attention.

He laughed and said, “I’ve never seen a board with metal wheels.” “You probably weren’t even born when they last made them,” I replied.

We chatted for a while, but when he mentioned his bum knee, I told him about ‘Jesus the Healer’. I asked him if I could pray for him. He said reluctantly, “Yes, I suppose so.” I prayed, then told him about ‘Jesus the Savior’. I asked him if he would pray with me. He said, “Yes.” He was born again at the bus stop.

Hearing and Seeing

Soon he was joined by his deaf & dumb brother. I told the skate boarder to tell his brother that he was now saved. He signed the message to him. I asked him if his brother also wanted to know Jesus. He shook his head “Yes.” As I prayed, the skate boarder signed a prayer of salvation to his brother. Now they could both hear and see…into God’s Kingdom.
