New York City choral trip yields new believer

FORT WORTH, Texas (BP)--Laura Baskin knew she would enjoy New York City's sights and sounds when she and the rest of a seminary vocal ensemble made a special trip to the Big Apple. Baskin and two other singers -- Hilary Hogan and Kennedy Matthias -- also ended up welcoming a new brother into the Kingdom when, in the middle of Times Square, he accepted Christ. Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary's Master Chorale was in New York City to debut new works by their professors at the Lincoln Center. Baskin, Hogan and Matthias first met Zach as a face in a crowd of people promoting a comedy club in Times Square. The men filled the sidewalk, talking to passersby and handing out fliers. They were largely dismissive of Baskin and her friends. Zach, however, was willing to listen to what Baskin had to say. She introduced herself, took him through the "Roman Road" Gospel presentation, and showed him from Scripture his spiritual condition and how he, like everyone, needed a Savior. Hogan and Matthias joined Baskin in talking with Zach about the Christ, and everyone seemed surprised when he wanted to pray -- including Zach himself. "He stopped short once and said, 'Wow. This is so weird.' I said, 'Well, you're already talking about Jesus in the middle of Times Square, so how much weirder can this get?' It was really funny," Baskin said. Zach's genuine response left an impression on Baskin.
