He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?" - Romans 8:32

Iowa Man Feels Called to Saudi Arabia

Yes, this is a joke:

DES MOINES — Kevin Watson, a lifelong Iowan, hopes to make a big difference for Christ in Saudi Arabia. He decided to go there while watching a video about Islam in his adult Sunday school class last week.
"I felt such a burden for those Islamics," he says. His strong emotional response confirmed God's call on his life, he says. He is using savings from his grocery store job to buy a plane ticket. He also invested $120 in a Berlitz course to learn some phrases in "Saudi Arabian," he says.
Once Watson arrives in Saudi Arabia he plans to let God open doors for him. He feels a "strong spiritual tie to the Saudi royal family" and believes he will have a "divine appointment" with them once he arrives in country. He plans to tell them that "oil has been a big part of my life, too" because Watson worked at a QuikTrip to put himself through community college.
"That will open their hearts to hear the gospel and travel down that Romans road," he says.
Watson also plans to start a men's accountability group and do some street witnessing in Riyadh.
"It'll be fun," he says. "I can't wait to see what God does with me there." •
