Jesus and Breann came into the store looking for a NOTW baby onesie as they are expecting a baby boy (Blake). They were excited to see the NOTW onesies for newborns, as they wanted to bring Blake home representing NOTW. I shared with them that it would be cool if the whole family was wearing NOTW as they came home from the hospital. They loved the idea and as we continue to shop, I asked them where they fellowshipped? They said no where but they were looking because they needed to get back to church with the baby on the way.
The Lord pressed upon my heart to ask a few more questions, specifically whether they knew where they were going when they died. (This was definitely as step of faith as they were clearly NOTW fans having shopped at our store before and where loading up on NOTW gear) They shared that they did not know where they were going when they died, but hope heaven. I began to share the gospel with the baby onesie "God's little blessing." By the grace of God, I was able lead them in a prayer to receive Christ.
It was beautiful to listen to them as they prayed to God to receive Christ as Lord and Savior and to spontaneously break out in crying out for the healthy delivery of their baby boy, the strengthening their marriage and for finding a church. After we finished, you could see tears in their eyes and I encouraged that through Jesus they could love their new baby with the Love of God they so desperately desired.
It was cool to think how miracle of life and our baby onesies provided the avenue for this family's eternity to be altered forever!
