On a flight a couple weeks ago I had probably one of the most significant divine encounters on this Kilimanjaro journey. It was an encounter filled with unbelievable “coincidences” some would say. I don’t believe it was a coincidence that the man who sat next to me had climbed Kili. I don’t believe it was a coincidence that he was a medical dr who had answers to many of my questions about mountain climbing. I don’t believe it was a coincidence that he was investigating faith in christ and reading a book given to him by a friend about this. I don’t believe it was a coincidence that I know his friend and that he is a Nazarene medical dr. And that he attends a church nearby where i live. I don’t believe it is a coincidence that he needed me and I needed him on that flight. I believe it was a divine encounter. God brought two lives together for each of our growth.
Out of this encounter children will be sponsored and their lives forever changed.
Out of this encounter I was educated on Kili, climbing, altitude sickness
Out of this encounter he received answers to many of his questions on faith
Out of this encounter he made some connections about human trafficking, and the difference he can make
Out of this encounter passion was stirred to make a difference here in USA as well
As our families have dinner together next week it is my prayer that what God started on a plane will move beyond us to our wives, children and ultimately to the world around us that others lives will be impacted and God will receive honor and praise.
I know this, he is excited about sponsoring some children and impacting his world and deepening his pursuit of God because of an encounter on a plane.
When was the last time you had a divine encounter?
Divine encounters are becoming a regular occurrence in my life. I think it is because I expect them now and am always watching for them.
Thank you Jesus for showing up on airplanes and for another divine encounter.
