an Olympic diver. The only religious influence in his life came from
his outspoken Christian friend. The young diver never really paid much
attention to his friend’s sermons, but he heard them often.
One night the diver went to the indoor pool at the college he
attended. The lights were all off, but as the pool had big skylights and
the moon was bright, there was plenty of light to practice by.
The young man climbed up to the highest diving board and as he

asked God to save him from his sins and come into his life.
As the young man stood, a maintenance man walked in and turned
the lights on. The pool had been drained for repairs.
