And he did it online!
My son is 12, almost 13 and has always been vocal about God to his friends..never been shy about it at all...most though are Christians or have some knowledge of God though. This was the first time he encountered someone that had little to no knowledge though. He gets on an online game that has chat on it for the members and is constantly making new friends (and yes I am carefully watching and keeping an eye on things) anyway he made a new friend and who knows how they got started talking about this but she was telling him that demons protect people! That both demons and angels protect people and he told her oh no they don't! She said she read this in some book at school. Her mom apparently has no religious beliefs and her dad is dead. So anyway Nate just started telling her about our faith and was so thrilled he was remembering things I had taught him from the bible and able to tell that to someone in writing. He was very excited. Writing..typing...is difficult for him to get his thoughts expressed this way. He is used to just talking and being able to tell people things like this but had never had to type it like that so was very happy with himself.
Then the discussion went on and on...he talked to her online for a couple of hours in fact as she kept asking him questions. On some thing he had to come to me and ask about or ask how to spell something...lol. At one point he said, now she says she is afraid to die because she might go to hell and I said, well you need to tell her she needs to accept Jesus as her Savior...as He died for our sins and paid that price so we don't have too. So he did...he went through the whole thing I think!
He said she was very friendly and seemed to understand everything he said and very accepting of it all.
Then she had to get off but came back on briefly later and I told him he needed to tell her to go to church (he doesn't think her mom will let her go through) and get a bible and read it or at least read one online.
So anyway throughout this I was praying for the Lord to help him with this..I am all teary now too of course. I told Nate how proud I was of him for what he did and he seemed amazed at what he had done too. So I am praising the Lord for working through my son this evening like this! Thank you Lord!
Nate was so intent on this too that I barely got him to eat supper then he ate as fast as he could so he could get back to her.
