Nevertheless, Bell said that one of his “most memorable” conversations was with an Uber driver who took him to the show’s set.
“He asked me what I did for a living and that was an open door for the gospel. In fact, he kept asking me questions,” Bell said. “I had to do very little. So who knows. Maybe the entire reason I was on ‘Wheel of Fortune’ was for that one Uber driver. God has a tendency to do really cool things like that.”
Bell told ChurchLeaders that one of the ways he saw God use him on show was when Sajak asked him about what foster care and adoption means to their family.
“The crazy thing is that when Pat Sajak is introducing the contestants at the beginning, he can ask us whatever he wants based on the info each contestant gives the producers before the show,” Bell explained, adding that each contestant answers 10 questions about themselves for Sajak to choose from.
“It was so cool to have him ask about what foster care and adoption means to our family,” Bell remarked.
“God has used that small, 10-second response to open up many doors to help raise awareness of how the church can and should be the hands and feet of Christ in this area,” Bell said. “Adoption is the most tangible example of the gospel we have on earth. For we, ourselves, as believers, have been adopted by God the Father and we are now heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ.”
