Today's evangelism team consisted of my brother Peter and his wife Altamira, Roman, Ben  and myself (Andrew).  We met up at the high st. ruins and after prayer, we proceeded to split up and pass out tracks amongst the locals.  Roman shadowed me to gain some experience and we eventually encountered a group of youths sitting on some public benches.  Out of the group, a young girl named Faye had many questions to ask (and a lot of foul language to boot).

I kept pressing the requirements of God’s Law and the judgement that will ensue in having broken it.  I think she eventually understood the predicament and I explained the Gospel as accurately as I could for her.  She took a Gospel of John and a few tracts so perhaps she will begin be drawn to Christ through this encounter.  My brother Peter also had a few conversations...

After the prayer I went over to the entrance of Bay Tree shopping center and handed out some Good Person comics and Million Pound Tracks. One girl named Alice was completely convinced she was a good person, very self confident in her works but once I out lined the Ten Commandments and Romans 3:23, her world view began to crumble. I finished with the good news that Christ had paid the price for her sin if she would choose to repent and put her faith in Christ and live for him.

The overall response was great, many people heard the Gospel. Three young girls sitting on the bench were a great chance to share the word and after we spoke they had (I assume) a much better understanding of they’re position with God, how to get to heaven, which is only by Gods grace and not by by works (Eph 2:8-9), that they needed God and were a heart beat away from eternity in hell if they died today and that Christ was the ONLY way to get there (John 14:6).
