Encouragement from Wal-Mart

Today I (Steph) was at Wal-Mart buying some big plastic bins for storing things in. An older gentleman was helping me and he said, "You must be doing some packing." I said, "Yes, we are moving." He said that he had just moved from the East Coast and I told him that we were moving to Africa. He said, "Are you doing missionary work?" I told him that we were. He said, "Oh, that's great!" I thought our conversation was over and as I was putting my wallet away he said, "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come....Matthew 24:14." I smiled at him and gave him a big "AMEN", and I thanked him for his encouragement.
I left praising the Lord for using this brother to encourage me as I press on in this journey.
