Air Force Man Finds Sister Cindy-35 Years Later

FEB. 2017 Email


     Through the years, I have repeated a story about a traveling evangelist who visited the University of Arkansas.  In the Fall of 1981, I was a freshman at the University of Arkansas.  One afternoon, a fellow student came into my dorm room and urged me to come to the Student Union fountain.  “Sister Cindy was in town and I needed to see this.”  I don’t think needing to see this was meant to be for a good reason.  When I arrived at the fountain, there were perhaps a hundred to two hundred students gathered all around. Up on the edge of the fountain, standing above all the students was this woman and her friend preaching the Word of God.  This wasn’t your normal Sunday/Wednesday Methodist rhetoric to which I was accustomed.  This was some fairly [in my words] inflammatory preaching that attacked members of sororities, fraternities, and darned near anything else that a fair number of college students hold near and dear.  Students were actively shouting back at that young evangelist.  Some students were trying to make good points while most others were just being rude in what they were shouting.  What was amazing, and has kept my interest all of these years is what happened next.Vintage Sis. Cindy

     At one point, Sister Cindy and her colleague departed the fountain area for a break in the Student Union.  When they departed, this mob of students continued to shout and generally make fun of Sister Cindy.  Five or ten more minutes passed and the few good sized groups further divided into many more even smaller groups.  These groups were no longer mentioning Sister Cindy.  They were no longer making rude, outrageous comments about the preaching that they had just witnessed.  Quite suddenly, these small groups of college students were talking to each other about the Word of God.  They were witnessing to each other about what God meant to them and their future.  I stood there quietly and watched this incredible transformation.

     I do not know if this was your intent, but WOW!  I have told this story many times over the years to many people.  To this day, I am amazed at the impact that you had upon that group of students.  Were you aware that your major impact would happen when you walked away and took a break?  You were able to motivate them to take the time to discuss the Word of God.  I know I waited far too long, but I just wanted you to know.

   In addition to your impact on the college students I mentioned, you and Sis. Pat had an very positive impact on me.  Following college graduation in 1986, I served in our US Air Force and continue to serve to this day.  The Armor of God has served me well through assignments throughout the world, to include 2 1/2 years in various deployments to the Middle East. God has also chosen you for a tough assignment. 


Pagan Surrenders

Feb. 2017 Chelsea writes:Hug an Pagan

   I was always taught about Jesus as a child, growing up in a deeply religious family and going to Catholic schools. I knew of His existence, but could never really feel His presence in my life. Some very hard trials came and I turned from His grace. I spent a few years trying to angrily deny Him and trying to seek other idols for guidance. It wasn't until trying to deal with some mental health issues on my own that I began to search for Him.   

   It was very sudden. I had a breakdown and when the results of which weren't a complete disaster, I just felt it, felt Him. I can’t explain it!

  Bro Jed and Chelsea One Psalm that has greatly helped me ever since is Psalm 27:1-4. I say it repeatedly when I begin struggling with anxiety and depression. With God's help I'm getting better and I'm learning to better keep my trust in Him. To be honest, I feel like your visits with Brother Jed really helped. I got to talk out my frustrations and I think that helped make them more real and tangible.

   Chelsea posted the above testimony on Facebook recently. The first year we met her at Louisiana State University, she was a vocal pagan. The second year she listened more, and Chelsea with hubbyher Senior year, 2015, she declared faith in our Lord. We signed a Bible and gave it to her. It is great to hear that she is in an Assembly of God church with her husband and in-laws.

After hearing Jed dialogue with the freshman, Brian, who has always worn a IUPUILenin hat, apologized for arguing.  Jed presented unto him the Gospel. He said, he wanted to accept Christ. Charles C. and Jed led him in a sinner’s prayer. We had opportunity for further ministry to Brian when we returned the next day and we also connected him with a local pastor who set up regular Bible studies with the new believer.

He has been attending Orthodox services. The Orthodox instructed him to wait for a year to be baptized in order to receive teaching. After 3 PM Cindy asked him, “What if you die before then?”  She pressed him that he could repent and have his sins forgiven now.  He said, “I don’t know how?”  Cindy gave him instructions as to what he must do to be saved. He then extended his hands and started to pray according to what Cindy directed.  Cindy then laid hands upon him and prayed and gave him further teaching to which he responded.  A number of students, who had been observing at a distance, moved closer while we were praying.
  • Chinese at CSU Oct. 26: We missed the noon break; nevertheless, Sister Pat stood up andChinese convert to Jesus asked students as they were passing, “Are you a Christian?” One Asian answered, “I am a Buddhist.” Pat replied, “Have you heard of Jesus?” He answered, “Yes, my roommate told me about him. I am interested.” Sister Pat explained the gospel. She asked, “Would you like to become a Christian?” He answered in the affirmative, so Pat led him in a prayer of repentance and faith.” Sis. Pat gave Jake a Bible. Bro. Jed also talked with him and got his contact info to pass on to campus ministers.
  • Atheist at CSU Oct. 26: A girl responded to Sister Pat by saying, “I have studied the world religions; I am an atheist.” The more Pat talked about Jesus the more open to the gospel she became, until Pat prayed with her to receive Christ as her Lord and Savior.

  • Three at Iowa University, Oct. 18 & 19: Bro.

Jed was getting his stuff together to leave, a Catholic said he was not assured of his salvation so Jed led him in a prayer of repentance and faith.  Sister Pat and Jed left an audience of 10 with Bro.

Mikhail and Bro Cope talked with him Tuesday and Wednesday.   Today, Cindy and Jed again had long talks with him; he is full of questions. After Sister Pat witnessed to him for a while, she asked, “Do you want to get saved?”  He answered, “Yes.”  Pat said, “If you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved.”  He then made his confession through prayer.
