When we arrived for our outreach in Brisbane city today, we checked out the rain radar and saw a large rain band about to hit the city. So we decided to set up the Bible table undercover.
After praying and starting to hand out tracts, we met two new ladies who said they wanted to help us share the gospel today. The funny thing is that one asked the other, "Do you know where the Christian group is who share the gospel here?" The other lady replied, "That's exactly who I am trying to find too!" Their names were Grace and Emily.
We are always praying for more labourers to help us so this is an answer to prayer!
There were a lot of good conversations today with a bunch of different people. A few conversations were with atheists, but when I gave them a simple argument of - just as a building must have had a builder, so must this universe had a creator - they backslid from their position of atheism and acknowledged God's existence. This meant, I could go on to talking about sin, the coming Judgement and the gospel.
Also there were a few people after hearing the message said that that they wanted to repent and trust in Christ alone for their forgiveness today.
This included a guy named Jon who was sitting nearby where we were for most of the afternoon. He professed to be a Christian, but didn't understand the gospel. After talking with him, he came to understand grace and stayed around us till it was time for us to leave, and then mentioned to me that he wants to come next Wednesday afternoon to help us share the gospel with us!
Glory to God! He said, "I want to do something with my life now that is of eternal value."
Thirty minutes to go, the rain ceased and so this enabled Norm to get up on the step ladder to share his testimony in the open air (this is the testimony he is going to share this Sunday when he gets baptised). Afterwards Gerhard got up and read in public from John 3. It is great to hear these guys breaking the sound barrier and unashamedly making Christ known in the open air.
It is never in vain when God's word goes out. So to God alone be all the praise!
