were dead, yet shall he live.’ Friend, i f you’re tired o f being bad news, then hear the Good News, and ask the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive your sin and come into your heart.” John wanted to respond to that invitation more than he had ever wanted to do anything in all his life. But he sat still, telling him­ self, “ I’ve tried everything else. It’s no use . . .” As the meeting ended, John walked quietly out­ side to his hotel room. But as he tried to sleep, he kept hear­ ing one verse the speaker at the mission had boomed o u t: “B e ­ lieve on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.” John jammed his pillow against his ears, but he still heard the words. He wept. And he began crying aloud, “ 0 God, help m e !” He picked up the Gideon Bible that lay on the dresser but had no idea where to begin looking, so he didn’t even open it. Instead, with the Book still in his hand, he knelt, and began to pray. He put his trust in Christ to break the grip sin had on his life. “ I felt relaxed,” John recalls. “ I was calm. I fell asleep. When I woke up the next morning, I knew I was different. Something had happened. The burden I had been carrying was gone. I remem­ ber I had the feeling that I might amount to something after all. There was a bottle o f whisky on the bureau. I took off the cap and poured it out.” Today, John Fink is the direc­ tor o f the new Atlantic City Res­ cue Mission, having received his training as a spiritual counselor on the staff at Pacific Garden Mission. “ I think this is where God wants me fo r now,” he says. “ And as long as I ’m in His will, I’m satisfied. I used to fill my life with junk, and I was dissatisfied. Now I’m complete in Jesus’ life, and my soul is satisfied.”
