The weather was a bit barmy yesterday afternoon. One moment it would be raining and cold, the next moment the sun would be out and hot. This was a pattern that would be repeated throughout the outreach.
Despite the weather, the outreach the afternoon went really well. One of the highlights of ministering in Sunnybank is that you can touch the nations without leaving Australia. We have found it extremely important to have material in Chinese to reach a large segment of the community.
Yet, not all our work in Sunnybank is evangelistic, sometimes we minister to fellow Christians and help them grow in Christ. For instance, yesterday a man stopped to talk because initially he disagreed with our method of evangelism. He had tried open-air work in the past, but believed it didn't work today.
We chatted for awhile about different tactics in witnessing, and then we spoke about some theological and apologetic struggles he was having. At the end of our conversation this brother shook our hands and thanked us for being out in the streets. It was wonderful to be able to encourage him in Jesus.
Please continue to pray for this outreach. May the Lord be pleased to save many. SDG!
