We received the following letter this week and would like to share it with you for your encouragement. We have changed or omitted certain things to protect the privacy of this Lighthouse Trails reader:
Dear Lighthouse Trails:
I thought you might be interested – you might remember that a couple of weeks ago, you sent us some more books. This is the little story.
There was an older couple friend that we used to visit with a lot until about two years ago when I became labeled as a bit of a “fanatic” – imagine that, people like us being labeled as fanatics.
Well, we ran into this couple at a ______________ banquet but now their daughter is in a situation at the big church in ____________ . She was a worship leader and very well respected.
Long story short, we gave them a copy of Faith Undone and a week later she called me … in shock. She could hardly believe what she had read.
Last night we were invited to her daughter’s place and for an hour and a half, we talked about this “stuff.” But, by this time, she had a copy of the book. Her Mom had taken five copies of our last order and given them to all of her adult kids in Minnesota, Montana, and Canada. Again, this younger lady said it was like scales falling off her eyes. The difference is that this gal is a home schooler, very sharp, very well respected in those circles, a reader/intellectual type and she will influence others. I gave her another book to give to a friend and told her about your website. I explained that you folks were also “fanatics” and she laughed.
One side note, I feel that with both of these families, this has been like a healing of relationships. More important, it is my dream to try and influence people one person at a time.
