Debbie and I have had a great few days spending time with the Judgement House leadership team. About once a year we have the opportunity to share stories and encouragement with other JH national trainers from across the country…and the world. Our biggest thrill this trip was our chance to meet Kathy. Last fall, Kathy attended Judgement House for the first time when she was invited by a friend. The drama she saw was “Unexpected,” a script that originated at NewSpring in 2008. As Kathy walked through each scene, she began to identify with the “perfect mom” who made preparations to care for everyone around her but never made preparation for her own eternity. She told us, “That was me…I was that mom.” All of a sudden she realized that she had never made that preparation for eternity either. We are excited to tell you that Kathy took care of that issue that night. She accepted Christ as her personal Savior and now she knows that she will spend eternity with Him in heaven.
It was just so cool to hear her repeat the words of the script back to Debbie and me. I can’t say how much I appreciate Debbie taking so much time to help me write the “Unexpected” script. We work together wrestling through ideas and wording that will connect to people who will be going through the tour. Special thanks to all you NewSpringers who help us do Judgement House each year and Sarah who takes video footage and puts it together to make training videos for other churches. Not until you get to heaven will you ever know how much impact your service has had on other people.
