God is merciful
« on: January 17, 2021, 01:53:24 pm »
I don't quite know how to put this without too many details, but I am just amazed with God's mercy and ways of working.

You know how you sometimes accidentally either ask someone to be your friend on facebook or accept someone.While scrolling and replying to a friend or something. There is this one person I am friends with and I don't even know the friend we have in common very well, someone I briefly met on my mission, because my companion had taught the person. So most likely I have accidentally befriended the person. Occasionally seeing the posts I've wondered should I just unfriend, because don't really know the person, but I've let it be.

A few days ago got a messenger message from the person, a short plea for help, but very vague. I asked how can I help. Today we've exchanged many messages. Turned out I have a real life friend in a similar situation and I was able to help the person. We'll continue the exchange since issue is not yet solved. The person is also a member of the church. The main thing was that the person was ready to end life, if not today, soon.

There is  about 6000 miles between us.

God is merciful. Miracles happen. Internet is not evil :-)
