two brothers at the “Tractor Supply Store.” As we arrived, I got out of the van and
my path intersected that of a man named Reid Crider. Reid was having trouble
walking, but when he got close to me he struck out his hand like I was a long-lost
relative, and began talking. We stood in the hot July sun for a long time talking.
It is a long story that I need not get into, but he and his wife live in Birmingham
AL, and they are in the process of moving here to be near his son Dr. Steven
Crider an infectious disease physician. Reid had two stents put into his heart
and veins replaced in his legs; he is wrestling diabetes and ten years ago had
prostate surgery. As we talked, this verse in John 5:19 came to me and the
thought, “Is the Father doing something?” So just before he left, I asked if I could
pray for him. He replied, “I wish you would.” The Holy Spirit gave me the words
to say, and I gave a strong testimony that salvation is Jesus’ name. He thanked
me and we parted ways. Was this a set up by the Father and the Holy Spirit?
Or an accident?
