Sunday afternoon at Wellington point was overcast but quite warm so we were blessed to have a breeze and a shady tree to keep us cool. After committing the afternoon to the Lord in prayer we started to hand out our Gospel tracts, it’s good to have a variety of tracts to suit the different people groups and various ages of the people.
As a family walked passed, one of the teenage boys who was with them stopped to chat as he was asked the question on whether he followed Jesus. He said he was and is obeying the message of turning away from sin. It was during the chat that he told me that he remembered talking with me at the Halloween Festival in Wynnum last year, and so I encouraged him to continue to read the Bible.
Now at the same time, Gordon was talking with 3 young adults from Cleveland Baptist church. They were testing a homemade PVC spud gun and they said they were going to be coming back periodically in coming weeks to do more testing. The good thing about this was the spud gun sounded like a mini cannon every time they fired it and was attracting onlookers (more people for us to hand out tracts to). Gordon got to talk to an onlooker who was also a believer who was drawn by the noise - God uses everything.
The ladies came back with many good conversations, LeeAnne spoke with 3 teenagers even before we started, she had lots of people she engaged with while Railee and Glenda prayed and kept handing out tracts.
Glenda spoke with a Japanese lady, she said she would read the tract but was not interested in Jesus being the only way to heaven. The amazing thing was: While Glenda was working a few days later she was taking an elderly Client for a walk and she saw the Japanese lady from Sunday and got to say "Hello, remember me from the other day at Wello?" She looked and waved. We pray she will consider all that was said to her about Jesus and her salvation.
Another great afternoon of sharing the glorious Gospel. To God be the Glory.
