The gospel went out to many today in Sunnybank, which is in Queensland, Australia. The beauty about this area is that it is predominantly Chinese people, many who are studying in Australia for a short number of years. So even though it may be hard to go to China and openly evangelise to these people there, it's wonderful that they come to us here and they can hear the gospel.

We found that most of the Chinese people that we talked to today said that they didn't believe in God. For in China they are taught Atheism. But for each of the people that we spoke to, we simply showed how this universe must have had a creator, and it wasn't long before each of the people had changed their mind about God's existence.

It really goes to show that what Paul wrote in Romans 1 is spot on, that: "What can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. (Romans 1:19-20)

Once that foundation had been laid, we were able to say, "Since God exists, it matters therefore what you do on this earth, in that God will judge you based on how you've lived. So do you think you're a good person?"

And just like everyone else, they thought they would be good enough for heaven. So we took them through some of God's commandments to see if they had kept them, and they too hadn't. This then lead on to explaining that we need a perfect person to take our punishment for us, and that is Jesus.

After explaining that they need to repent and trust in Christ, we encouraged each of them to carefully consider the message. One such person we spoke today was named Kelvin, and we were also able to give him a gospel of John to start reading. Please pray for him and all the others who heard the gospel today.

Glory to God that His gospel is going out!
