Isaiah 55:11 tells us that God's word never goes and and returns void. As you probably already know, we end every show with a devotion where we challenge our viewers with a truth from God's Word. I never know how God is going to use our show but we are constantly amazed by His work and use of Final Descent Outdoors.
This addition of The Harvest comes to us from Karen. Karen emailed us just before Christmas. Karen and Rick have been married for nearly 20 years. Karen has been a faithful church member but Rick rarely went, mainly on Easter and Christmas. They have three kids with the oldest being in jr high. Every Sunday since the kids were born Karen and the kids would go to church and leave Rick at home to watch football, hunting shows, or to go hunting during season. As the kids got older, they began to want to stay at home with dad. That's where things begin to really get difficult for Karen.
How was she to respond to the kids? They were saying, if dad doesn't have to go, we don't want to go either! Karen was heart broke and started going to church for the first time without her kids. She asked her Sunday School class to pray about the situation. One of the men in the class, knowing Rick was a big hunter, asked Karen if Rick has ever watched Final Descent Outdoors. He told her what channel and what FDO was all about and after church she went home and set it to record. The show aired that evening and Rick watched the FDO guys hunt hogs with the Benghazi Heroes in Texas. He loved it and over the next couple weeks continued to watch.
A few Sundays later Karen was getting ready for church when Rick came out of the bedroom dressed and ready for church. Karen was shocked! For the first time ever, outside of a holiday Karen's family went to church...together. Karen emailed us this incredible story and to say thank you for our ministry adding, "it might just have saved our marriage."
Wow! Talk about being blown away! I'm so thankful that God's Word is alive and active and we are thankful God gives us the common ground of hunting to tell others about Him.
