Planting Seeds: A REACH Update

By Amy, Team Montana, USA

This past week I had some really cool experiences with taking steps in trusting God and what he’s telling me. One story goes like this…

Kelly and I were driving home one afternoon and I decided I wanted to be dropped off at my favorite coffee shop. We drove past the coffee shop and for some reason it was closed, so Kelly suggested taking me to one we hadn’t tried, but where our friend was working. So she dropped me off there and I talked to my friend and got some coffee. I was just hanging out there, waiting for her to close up when a girl walked in and ordered. Obviously, that’s normal, as this is a café, that’s what people do. She took a seat at the table next to mine and after getting her food, she just sat there staring at it, looking pretty despondent.

“How many times do you feel that prompting to just smile at someone or wish them a good day?”I felt like I was to mention something about the weather to her, so I did, and that just opened it up for a really personal conversation. She told me some stuff she was going through and I basically just listened the whole time. By the time the shop closed and she was done sharing, I definitely knew God had a reason for sending me to that café. I got to pray for her at the end, but other than that, just listening seemed to be enough. I’m glad that instead of worrying about sounding awkward and not saying anything, God was able to use me that afternoon. How many times do you feel that prompting to just smile at someone or wish them a good day? Sometimes that’s all it takes to plant a seed.

Pray that this team would continue to follow the urging of the Spirit as they reach out and plant seeds in Montana.
