Jody and the Three Bears
Andrew Barron, the director of Jews for Jesus in Canada, shares: “I did a ‘Christ in the Passover’ presentation at a church on the border of the Manistee National Forest in Michigan. Jody,* a Jewish woman who doesn’t believe in Jesus, came with a friend. Jody spoke with me at the table after the service. She wasn’t that open. As the conversation was wrapping up, sirens went off and a few police cars and forest ranger cars came screeching into the parking lot. A message came over the loudspeakers telling us to stay put—because there was a family of black bears in the parking lot!
“Jody came back to the table and said, ‘I’m thinking now would be a good time to talk!’ God works in mysterious ways! I had a captive audience for twenty minutes and then made my way to my vehicle with a police escort!”
