We had a great outreach on Wednesday afternoon in Brisbane city. Despite the opposition we have been getting in recent months, we see that there are plenty of people open to hearing about God.

Throughout the afternoon, the team was in gospel conversations with people, and a few team members preached, while God drew in people to listen.

One conversation we had was with a high school student named Emily. She said "I am a nice person", hoping that that would get her to Heaven. After talking to her about sin, the coming judgement, the cross, repentance and faith, she thought for a moment and said, "I will do that now, you have now convinced me".

I asked her a few checking questions to see whether she had understood the message of grace - that forgiveness is not something you can earn, it's a free gift available through trusting in Christ. She had. Please pray for her, she has a Bible already.

Straight after that conversation, I talked with another high school student named Olivia. The conversation went very similar and she too was open to the gospel. Afterwards she said, "I learnt something today. Wow thank you, I did not think I would learn this today".

She didn't have a Bible, so we gave her a gospel of John to start reading. Please also pray for her.

All glory to God that His word is going out and impacting people!
