The Lord is so faithful to remind me that my labor
for Him is never in vain.
It was a month ago that my testimony was aired on the
Focus on the Family radio program. Yesterday I received a wonderful letter as a result of
the program. I will quote it here with the hope that the readers of my journal
will be encouraged to continue serving Jesus Christ:
"Dear David, May God's presence be there with you in a special way this Easter time. I know you are are rejoicing in Him for what He has done in your life, and in the lives of all of us who have
accepted Him. He is no respecter of persons, and, praise God He makes us a new
person--'old things are passed away, and behold all things are new.'
"I recently received
a copy of the tape of your interview on Focus on the Family, which was done last year, I believe. It was played on Dr. Dobson's program a couple of weeks ago.
"As I listened, tears came to my eyes again to hear what God has done, and is doing in your life. I continue to pray for you and to give out the tract of your testimony.
"You have encouraged
me to continue my jail and prison ministry. At my age of 82, and 12 years
in prison work, I sometimes feel it may be time to lay it aside. But when
I hear testimonies like yours it makes me realize that's where my
heart is and where God has called me. So I am encouraged to continue on.
