The Bonsai Tree

October 27, 2014

SOS Events had a booth at a County fair. In the booth next to ours was a Chinese man, who sold bonsai trees.
When things were slow, the SOS worker, asked the Chinese man,”How are things going?”
In broken English, the man replied, “Slow, I need to sell my Bonsai trees.”
“Which one would you like to sell?”
The Chinese man pointed to one of the most expensive of his bonsai trees.
“I will pray and ask God to bless you and that you will sell that bonsai tree,”
The next day, the SOS worker, came into the booth and the Chinese man with great excitement came over and ask her this question, “Who is your God and what is his name? After you left yesterday, a lady came by and bought that bonsai tree. Your God answers prayer.”
Thinking quickly, the SOS worker said, “His name is Jesus.”
“I want to know this Jesus,” the Chinese man replied.
Throughout the day when things were slow, The salvation story was explained to this Chinese man.
The next day, the man came over to the SOS booth and said, “I did it, I asked Jesus into my heart.”
SOS found a Chinese church in the man’s hometown so that his wife and mother could hear the gospel also.
What a joy to have the opportunity to lead someone from halfway around the world to the Lord Jesus Christ.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
