“Come and Dine”
On April 10, 2000 I went to a Job Finding Service. I was sent to a Christian School to apply for a pre-school teacher. After filling out the application, I was sitting in the hall waiting for someone to interview me when an eight-year-old girl approached me. She looked at me and asked, “Do you know God?” I turned to her and said, “What do you mean?” She then said, “I mean if you were to die today, where would you go?” I told her that if I were to die today I would go to Hell.
She started crying and then said, “Let’s pray because I want you to be my best friend in Heaven!” So I started to cry and then I go to bow my head and she said, “NO!!! Not like that, like this.” The little girl got down on her hands and knees and started praying. I started to cry even harder and got down on my hands and knees and start praying. Before I knew it I was screaming to the Lord to save my soul and to forgive me of my sins. After we were both done praying I got up and my burden was gone, all I felt was peace across my whole body.
She took my hand and asked, “Do you feel any different?” I smiled and looked her in her eyes and replied, “I am going to be your best friend in Heaven!!!!” We both started crying and hugged. We both turned around and to my surprise the whole school, staff and students were on their knees praying along with us. As I was leaving the building she came up to me and asked, “Can we be friends on earth too?” I said, “Of course.” She handed me a piece of paper that has her phone number and full name on it.
On my second attempt to leave the building the Dean came to me and shook my hand saying, “We would be proud to have you as one of our staff!!”
Now I have a bunch of new brothers and sisters. This little girl will always be in my heart and mind. The little girl told me one last thing before I left. She is dying of Aids. Please keep her in your prayers. Her name is Christine.
