On Friday night we had an outreach at the Gold Coast and it was great to see many people happy to talk with us about eternal things. There were still a lot of Schoolies around, celebrating their end of schooling.
In the second photo you'll notice a conversation is being had with a group of guys who chatted with us for quite a while. As they were leaving, one young man in the group said that he wanted to stay around and keep talking with us. And so he did, even though his friends all left. He was under great conviction of sin and was very open to hearing the news of Jesus' death and resurrection for our forgiveness.
Afterwards, we preached with the sketchboard and God saw fit to draw in people to listen to the message. During this, there were quite a few questions that people asked the preacher as well, such as "Why is there suffering?", and "How can Jesus pay for the sins of a really bad person?", and "What about homosexuality?" This drew in more and more of a crowd to listen to what was being said, with the preacher answering their questions and tying it in with the gospel.
To God be the glory that His word is going out!
