Will Warda Meet Isa?

I was trying on yet another pair of athletic shoes. Several boxes towered next to me on the bench.

“Can I help you?”

I looked up to see the young clerk next to me.

“Sure,” I said. “It’s hard to reach some of the boxes.”

“I’ll be glad to get a different size of shoes for you,” she offered.

I chuckled. “I’m taller than you,” I said.

She smiled back, “I’ll get a ladder.”

When she returned with a size 8 1/2 pair, I asked Warda about her name.

“It means ‘red rose,'” she explained. “I’m from Pakistan.”

I found out Warda is Muslim and is a senior in a local high school.

I offered her a tract, Would You Like to Know God Personally? She looked at the title with great interest.

“This booklet tells you about Isa,” I said.

“You know the right name to use,” she exclaimed.

We talked some more about how Isa (Jesus) provided a way for us to know God.

“I’m going to have to look into this,” she replied.

I asked Warda more about school and her plans for college. I gave her my email address in case she had any questions and then offered to pray with her. She was very pleased that I would offer and thanked me for praying for her to know God personally and for her plans for college.

Thank you, for praying for Warda today. Do you know a young person who would like to know more about Jesus?
