Woman Talks to Robber About Jesus, He Leaves Peacefully
Held up at gunpoint, a store clerk invoked her faith to turn the desperate thief into a repentant gunman.
When a man tried to rob a MetroPCS cell phone store at gunpoint in Pompano Beach, Fla., store manager Nayara Goncalves, 20, calmly talked to the man about Jesus and her faith until he left without taking any money.
Goncalves said she doesn't know why she began to talk to him about Jesus.
"I believe it was the Holy Spirit of God that really made me want to tell him about Jesus," Goncalves told ABCNews.com.

Four more children? You are a busy man!
Oh yes, God blesses His own although at times His correction may be difficult but in the end His ways work together for our good and His glory.
Your spelling is just fine, brother. Thanks for your reply and may God continue to bless you and yours.

Proverbs 15 23 A man has joy in an apt answer, And how delightful is a timely word! Proverbs 25 11 Like apples of gold in settings of silver Is a word spoken in right circumstances. 12 Like an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold Is a wise reprover to a listening ear.---NASB
Thic is a good news story. I wish we would respond to positive things with the same volume we do negative things. We are good at cursing the darkness, but not so good at thanking those who turn on the light.
What an extraordinary account and remarkable instance of what God has promised to all His people:
"But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you." (Matt. 10:19-20)
How bold was this woman's witness! Upon further reflection of this event, this passage came to my mind:
"Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them that they had been with Jesus." (Acts 4:13)
Not since the 'Columbine massacre' in Colorado many years ago now, when I read of a young girl by the name of "Cassie", who bore her testimony of Jesus Christ in the teeth of her executioners, have I read of such a courageous witness as the one borne by this woman.
