True, indeed, is the Bible proverb: “As apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time for it.Â”Â—Proverbs 25:11. - ??????? A Letter That Touched Her Heart ??????? One traveling overseer remembers well one occasion when he and his wife returned to their accommodations after a very chilly winter day in the ministry. He says: Â“My wife was cold and discouraged, and she told me that she felt she couldnÂ’t continue. Â‘How much better,Â’ she said, Â‘it would be to serve in the full-time ministry with a congregation, stay in one place, and conduct our own Bible studies.Â’ I deferred any decision, saying that we would continue for the rest of the week and see how she felt by then. If she still felt strongly about quitting, I would respect her feelings. That same day, we stopped at the post office and found a letter from the branch office that was addressed to her personally. The letter contained warm commendation for her efforts in the field ministry and her endurance, acknowledging how difficult it can be to sleep in a different bed every week. She was so touched by that commendation that she never again spoke of leaving the traveling work. In fact, several times she encouraged me to continue when I thought of quitting.Â” This couple remained in the traveling work for almost 40 years. - WhoÂ’s Heart can you touch today?Â ??????? https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2006005?q=I+spoken+word+at+the+right+time&p=par
