We arrived at about the same time as Ryan did so we got to chat on the way down the hill to meet the others at our usual spot to pray. On our way Ryan told us about Barry who contacted him during the week and said that he had come over from Perth and was with us till the 31st of March to get some training out on the streets with us!!!
Praise our God for answered prayer, He sure is sending labourers our way so that the Gospel can be proclaimed around this beautiful country we have the privilege to live in!!! Thank you LORD. We met up with the team and introduced ourselves to Barry. We prayed together and split up into three groups and started to hand out tracts.
Barry and I went to the shady tree spot and chatted as we handed out Easter tracts which are so easy to hand out by saying ‘Happy Easter’.
I handed Paul a tract as he approached with his wife and two small children. His wife and kids walked on as I engaged him with the Easter message, he was very open as I took him through the law to bring about the knowledge of sin, then the Gospel. I encouraged him to think seriously about what we had discussed for his sake and for that of his family. He said he would, thanked me, and joined his family.
Tai arrived shortly after and we handed him some Easter tracts which he handed out gladly. As we chatted I was able to encourage both of them in their willingness to join in witnessing with us.
It is really amazing as both these guys have a similar story in that around 2 years ago they both received a Gospel tract from our team at the Gold Coast and although Barry was already a Christian, Tai was not at that time but both of them were impacted by God to do something about the message. Tai was challenged to get right with God and Barry was stirred in his heart to the point of coming all the way to Brisbane to meet up with Ryan so he can be trained to do the work of evangelism back in Perth. Please pray that our Lord would stir up some saints in Perth to join with Barry to share the Gospel there.
Then the girls came and joined us after they had a good number of one on ones and some names to pray for, praise God!!! He always has someone to pass this great news to.
Ryan and Gordon joined back with us and told us about some of their conversations as they walked around the park area and we all shared in the joy of just being able to come together for this work. Another great day at Wellington Point. All praise be to our God!
