Editor’s Note: This is part two of a two part story about a trip local octogenarian Eugene Saul will be taking to Africa to share the gospel. Visit harrisondaily.com to read the story in its entirety.
“That door is open to speak to the students and share the gospel in public and often Muslim schools. I can’t walk away from those opportunities,” he said. “Only God can make this a school assignment.”
The cost of printing 10,000 booklets was also miraculously supplied. “I knew when I saw the favorable exchange rate in September that I was going to go back. So I went ahead and placed an order for the booklets and paid half up front for the printing like we always do.”
The day after he placed the order he received a call from a lady who wanted to give him a check in remembrance of his wife, Louella, who passed away in July. It was for $8,000. That covered the down payment cost of the printing. “That week I had three people walk up to me and hand me three $1,000 checks. All of the printing bill was paid for in just a little over a week. Do you think God is in control? This wasn’t from big churches … just individuals led to participate.”
“We believe for one soul for each one of those books. So we want to see 10,000 souls saved.”
With tears in his eyes he shared that Louella was his biggest prayer warrior. “And several of the people who prayed for past trips have already died. So we need to raise awareness and get more people to step in the gap and pray for this trip.”
Before his wife passed away, she told him he needed to get a younger couple to go with him next time. So for this trip Talyn and Bethany Sailors will be traveling, too. Visit the Eugene Saul Facebook page to see updates during the trip and in the Harrison Daily Times.
