In fact of the whole experience I only remember three things:
1) She said that "everything came from nature first" more than once (Not even a JW belief)
2) She read something from 1 Timothy and I remember internally wondering if she had even read the rest of that book, especially the false teachers part (1 Timothy 1:5-7).
3) The face of that little girl named Abby because my heart breaks for children that will be raised to not know the truth of the Gospel and will instead be hurt and blinded by false terminology.
I looked at the coffee table that evening where three Compassion child packets are sitting and realized how thankful I am to organizations like Compassion that work through local churches and do everything in the name of Jesus Christ. How much more hope can you offer a person really, than a Savior who loves you and longs to be in a relationship with you? The God that created all of nature, desires to know you and live inside of you. I am not sure why this lady is dragging her little girl around to strange houses but I imagine they have also adopted a family ministry approach to things. One thing I do know, it bothered me more because of it.
Also, if you are interested in sponsoring this child, let me know.
