(Encounter With Donna) 

By: Norm Rasmussen

I had plans to get a lot of much needed yard work done today but Vince asked me to go to breakfast with him so I did. Nearly 7 hours later of ministry, we walked out of the restaurant. While still talking out in the parking lot, Donna walked up to us and interrupted out conversation, asking if we could help her with a "donation" to enable her to do laundry. Vince HAD to get home so there Donna and I stood. I asked the Lord what I should do and He said, "Exhort ... but do it gently. She's very fragile." After I finished what I felt the Holy Spirit wanted me to say to her, I asked her how much she needed to do her laundry. She sized me up and figured I was I multi-millionaire I'm sure, (Just kidding! - I'm RICH in Jesus, but living on fixed income) and she bravely replied that she could probably do it for about $10.00. I sized her up and could smell alcohol (Vodka would be my guess) on her breath, but my guess is that it was more than alcohol she was buzzed up on.

I walked over to my car and checked my wallet for what I had in cash. $6 in $1's, and a $20. I asked the Lord if the $6 was fine and He said to give her the $20, with a condition. I also grabbed a Real Life Stories Christian Testimony Book Edition 6 from my trunk and walked back to her.

Her eyes lit up seeing the $20. I told her I felt Jesus wanted her to have $20, but with two conditions. One: That she would ask God to show her who to give half (or $10) to someone who needed it more than she did, and tell that person it was from JESUS, and Two: That she would read the Real Life Stories Testimony Book. She agreed to the condition of reading the RLS book, but she told me she knew of NO ONE who needed the $20 more than she did. So I asked her if I could first pray with her before leaving, and she consented. The Holy Spirit spoke some direct words into her mind and spirit, and tears fell from her eyes. He told her how valuable she was to Him, and how He would bless her so greatly if she would turn her life over completely to Jesus. A few other things got said ... but that's between her and God. So, I only got to give away 1 Real Life Stories Christian Testimony Book that day, but it will be a Real Life Stories Christian Testimony Book giveaway I'll never forget, and I'll bet she won't either. She'll be in my prayers.

I strongly encourage others to obtain copies of the REAL LIFE STORIES TESTIMONY BOOKS to pass along to others like Donna.  Here is how you can learn more about them:

Our email: 


Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
