FROM GRAND PRAIRIE, TEXAS
DOUGLAS RAYMOND ROSE
Politicians who call you a home are typically looking for either a vote or a donation. That’s why, when I was told that I was speaking to the County Land Commissioner I almost hung up.
I said yes.
“That Story you wrote in Angels on Earth about an angel helping you put out a church fire” he asked—is it true?
“Yes,but I wrote that nearly l0 years ago.”
“Well, I just found it and I wanted to tell you that I’m incorporating it into a Bible class I’m teaching. People need to know that angels help us eavery day.:”
As I hung up, I marveled that my angel experience still resonated with strangers. That’s why they call them messengers!
