A really awesome story...

My fellow Fish Melanie told us this story the first day of Fish this year, and I wanted to share it with all of you.

Right before Christmas last year her dad's plane crashed and he died. She kind of expected something bad to happen around that time, (that's a long detailed digression) but she was still totally shocked, and really struggling with the why question. That Tuesday they had a memorial service, and the pastor asked her if she wanted to speak. She did, but she just said a few things about her dad and stuff. Later the pastor asked her if she wanted to speak at the funeral on Friday. She said she would, and later when she was thinking about it she decided that instead of talking about her dad she would share the gospel. So the funeral came, and she got up and opened with "...choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...but as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord." and began by saying that this was something her father stood by, that he was a strong Christian influence in her life and that he always made certain that they followed Christ. And then she basically outlined the Gospel. She said there were about 500 people there.

Later that day she and her family were at the grave, and there was a guy standing off to the side, looking at her, and he was crying. Melanie was wondering who he was, and why he was so upset, since he didn't really know her father that well. She recognized that he had been a member of their church a few years back, but he had converted to Judaism. Finally he came up to her, and he said, "You will never know what you did." That Sunday he and his family were in church.

The next part I'll tell you in Melanie's words: "And then and there, I knew it was okay. I knew why my dad had died, and I was okay. Because I know I'll see my dad again, but now I get to see them too, and that makes it all okay."
