Brisbane WitnessingAs we were meeting for prayer before our Saturday night outreach in Brisbane city, a guy named Jack came up to us saying that he recognised me. He said I had spoken to him in the past at some stage.

So I asked him whether he has thought further about the message he heard. He said he had been beaten up since then and couldn't remember the conversation.

So we spent some time talking about sin and the judgement to come, and even when some friends of his were trying to distract him and drag him away, he told them to go away because he wanted to keep listening. We then shared the glorious news of the gospel. 

His response was, "I am not ready yet." He explained how he wanted to keep living life his own way for a while longer. We showed him how that's really not a good idea and so he said he would consider the message.

When we arrived in Queen Street Mall at 7:30pm, we set up the sketchboard and I preached a message on the 'greatest gift'. 

Throughout the night, we received quite a few encouraging remarks from Christians who were excited to see the gospel going out. We encouraged them to share their faith as well.

A few other people to pray for from the night:

Barman - came from Iran 2 years ago, said he loves sin, not really religious, "I know Jesus says he is the only way, but I want to go my own way."

Tarlier - thought she was a good person, very receptive. Came to understand the gospel. Never has read the Bible before. Happily accepted a Bible.

To God be the glory for another wonderful night!
