Timothy and Pishoy were talking about the angels as they appeared to some Biblical characters and some contemporary ones. Pishoy said, "I saw three angels."
"Where? How do they look like?"
“On my way to school a week ago, I saw a friend of mine hurrying to an old man in ragged clothes, tired and walking very slowly. My friend took the old man's hand and said to him, "Please sir, let me help you cross the road."
He helped the man cross the road. The man then said to him, "Thank you son. My eyes are weak and the road is very crowded. I prayed to God to send me an angel to take my hand and preserve me in the way. The Lord heard me and sent you to me as an angel."
My friend then rejoiced.”
"Who's the second angel?"
"In an evening, my sister was walking in a dark corridor at home. She took Mum's hand and said to her, "Mum, take my hand for, I'm afraid."
Mum took her hand then carried her on her arms and sang hymns with a sweet voice. My sister looked to Mum as if saying, "You're an angel from Heaven, Mum. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't live."
Since then, I see Mum as an angel and a gift from Heaven.”
“Who's the third angel, Pishoy?"
|“Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God” (2 Cor. 5.20).|
