She calmly drew her weapon and shot him.
And she credits the Holy Spirit for guiding her.
Jeanne Assam, who is being hailed as a hero, served as a volunteer, armed security guard at New Life Christian Church in Colorado Springs, CO, when the shots rang out.The shooter, Matthew Murray, had as many as a thousand rounds of ammunition for his assault rifle. With at least a thousands of people still in the common areas after the second service and smoke devices ignited, he could have killed many many more than the two who did die.
Red Letter Believers are people who are not afraid to take let their faith motivate them, encourage them and empower them to do difficult things. For Jeanne Assam — taking another man’s life was the biggest assignment of her life. So how about your job? When God asks you to walk across the room to speak up for Him, to right a wrong, to offer a hand, to be a person of faith — remember this courageous woman who was not afraid to let God use her.
“I was weak, but God made me strong. I am honored that God chose me.”
