New Faith and Old Tapes
Reading Time: 3 minutes
I came to the Lord in November, 1971 at the University of Kansas.
Just afterward I got a letter from a previous girlfriend, who shared how horrible her life was going. I wrote back saying. “We need to get together at Christmas” (when we would both be back in Des Moines from college).
Well, someone gave me three tapes on prophecy/end-times events given by one Josh McDowell. The tapes were cassettes recorded at the seminars by non-professionals and were of poor quality, probably having been recorded through several generations of recording. But those tapes spoke life to me and gave me confidence in the scriptures.
When Christmas came, my former girlfriend and I got together, and I told her how I had come into faith in Jesus. I had no training in evangelism and really did not have a clear understanding of the gospel. However, I had three cassette tapes on prophecy! So I played a couple of them to my friend and ended the session with “Jesus is real.” My friend started crying. Not having any idea how to lead her to the Lord, I just took her home.
I was wise enough to get in touch with some Christians at her college, Iowa State University, and they were able to lead her into a commitment to Christ.
