"How God can take the little things that we do, and turn them around and save a life."
She in turn is very kind and is a witness to others about her relationship with Christ. While talking with a group in the assisted living apartments where she lives now, she pulled out the doll and explained what it had done for her in reminding her to take the time to talk with the Lord. After this conversation, a gentleman named Malcolm share with her how he had not been praying, and that he was not sure that God really cared about him anymore, and that prayer really does not work.
Later, he decided he would take one of the dolls just to help the project the missionary groups were working on. By the way, the dolls were only $5.00. I received a check in the amount of $45.00! I called Malcolm to thank him for his generous gift, and we talked a lot about how God can transform our lives, and give us peace in all circumstances.
According to my friend, Malcolm began to change. He was happy, smiling, and thanking God for a lot of things. He told her that one day he looked at the doll, and decided to try it, so he prayed. He was so thankful because he was now talking to God every day and felt so much better.
Malcolm called me again and wanted four more dolls for his family. He sent me $125.00! His life had turned around! It was about three weeks after Malcolm received the dolls that he passed away.
I sat down with the missionary group and we talked about how our groups at around a table, doing all the small things of putting a little yard doll together, and how God can take the "little" things that we do, and turn them around and save a life. So, don't ever stop, don't ever forget that anything we do for our Savior is a blessing. Nothing is too little in God's hands!" - Gerry Conner - Women's Ministry Representative.
