God at the Jiffy Lube.

I, Tom, truly delight in sharing the gospel outside the church. I especially like group witnessing to ‘captive audiences’ in waiting rooms. We’d been postponing getting our car oil changed for weeks. However, when returning from my cardiologist’s visit, Irene said, “Over there!” So we pulled into a Jiffy Lube. I started a conversation with a very big young fellow who had just graduated from college with a double major and recently returned from a celebration trip to Tahiti. During our friendly chat, when he mentioned ‘beer,’ that was my cue to begin my personal testimony starting with when I was in the Marines and working into the gospel.

The manager, Tommy, came in just as I got to the good part. He was especially interested in my Navy service. His great grandfather had served in WW I, WW II, and Korea. A Marine sniper, he served aboard the USS Wilmington here in North Carolina which has his name engraved on a memorial plaque with other crew members. (We visited the Wilmington and looking through a forward gun turret sight saw the cross-hairs trained on someone’s window. How do they sleep at night?) Pray for all four men in the captive audience the Lord dropped in my lap. Also pray for many more I’ve shared Christ with this past month, including Marvin, an ex-paratrooper.
