Jonathan Goforth, a Canadian missionary to China, was first a missionary at home. Here is a story related by a friend of his:
On one occasion, Goforth was scheduled to speak at a certain place on Sunday. When about to leave for the station he found he had only sufficient money to buy a ticket one station short of where he was to speak. At once he decided to get his ticket to that station and walk the rest of the way, a distance of ten miles. This he did. When about eight miles of his foot-journey had been covered he came upon a group of road-menders sitting by the roadside. Glad to rest, he sat down among them. … It was not long before he had the ears and hearts of his audience. On leaving he gave all a hearty invitation to his meeting the following day. To his great joy several of the men turned up. And at least one of these men decided for Christ that day.
How can you turn an inconvenience into an opportunity for the gospel this week?
