Lee’s Roomate

by adustyframe ~ August 24th, 2009

I shared awhile ago about Lee’s roommate. You can catch up here if you missed it.

Here are some interesting things that have been happening.

1. Lee had a book about overcoming on his table. Matt (I think that’s his name!) asked what it was and Lee said, “Why don’t you read some of it to me?”

Matt opened the book randomly and read 10 pages out loud. The 10 pages just “happened” to be a complete plan of salvation.  When he put the book down, Matt said, “Hmmm that was interesting.”

2. He told Lee that he’s afraid of dying. Lee told him that’s because he doesn’t know where he’s going. Lee shared some Bible verses with him about death. I haven’t heard anymore about that conversation.

3. He said to Lee, “I sort of think of you as a brother.” Lee said that his family hasn’t been supportive of him since his release and Lee rather feels sorry for him.

4. The other night, Lee said Matt was listening to rock music. Then he switched the radio to oldies, then something else, and then a Christian station. He left it on the Christian station all night and in the morning said to Lee, “Wow, I slept really good with that Christian music.”

So, who know what seeds Lee has been able to plant.

The parole officer told Lee today that she’s going to move them to a different facility with more beds. I don’t think they’re going to the same facility, so perhaps Lee won’t have any more contact with Matt. I’m praying that Matt will take to heart the things he’s heard and read and that God will bring other Christians across his path to plant more seeds.

    WOW What a blessing Lee is in that man’s life.
    That is awesome….the Lord is really using him to help someone else determine where they will spend eternity…Lee was totally obediant to God’s leading…God Bless, Pam

    Neat to hear of the seeds that have been planted. May they continue to be watered and may God give the increase soon!
