A DIVINE APPOINTMENT AT AN AIR FORCE CADET SCHOOL

During the June 2012 Argentina International Scripture Blitz (ISB) The Gideons International was granted permission to make distributions at a school of Argentine air force cadets. This distribution was particularly special to me, because I grew up as an “air force brat” as my father was an offi cer in the United States Air Force. As the cadets were dismissing from school, several Gideons and I were blessed to talk with them. I explained to the cadets that I had gone to school on an air force base, too. I started talking with them about the airplanes because I knew a lot about them. Aſt er a while, about nine boys continued to stand around to listen and visit with me. I asked the boys if they would join the air force aſt er they graduated. They all answered with an enthusiastic, “Yes!”

I asked them to raise their hand if they wanted to fl y jets. All of the boys grinned and their hands all shot up into the air. A Gideon brother who was with me stepped up and whispered in my ear, “Wouldn’t it be great if they were raising their hands for Jesus?” He told the boys to look at the back page of the New Testaments they had just received and led them through the plan of salvation. Meanwhile, I started praying asking for the Holy Spirit to take over and use him to speak to these nine boys. With the help of a translator, my fellow Gideon asked the boys to raise their hands if they wanted to accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Again, all their hands shot up in the air. Led by the Spirit, he said, “No! No! No! You can’t raise your hand just because your friend did.” He explained that this was the most important decision they would ever make in their lives. This time, all nine boys raised their hands deliberately. This decision was real for them. The Gideons International
