During our Friday night outreach at the Gold Coast, we noticed that there were already some Schoolies who had arrived, and so we had the opportunity to talk to a bunch of them about Christ.
They are some of the most open people to talk to, because they have nothing to do down there, they're at a crossroads in their life, and they don't have their parents around - so they have to think about the issues for themselves.
We had two people on the team who preached with the sketchboard and God drew in a crowd to listen to the message. During this, the rest of the team were handing out gospel tracts and getting into conversations, including with a young lady named Melissa.
After hearing the bad news that we have sinned against God and deserve punishment, and also the good news that Jesus died for our sins if we repent and believe, you could tell she was clearly pondering the message. She said, "I am going to have to seriously think about this tonight."
God's word never returns void! To God be all the glory!
