“I won't need more than four hundred gospel tracts today”, someone on the team commented. But as the afternoon went on, he came over saying, I actually need more! Praise the Lord.
We met in Queen Street Mall again today to first of all pray, before finding a place to witness. The council has really stepped up their opposition to us sharing the gospel there recently (despite us having permission under a State law). When we arrived last week, there were three council workers and six police officers waiting for us to see if we would approach anyone to talk about the gospel, and if so, they would fine or arrest us. But last week, we had already decided beforehand that we would go to somewhere outside the Mall to witness, and it went really well.
Today, when we arrived the council workers were already there waiting for us again, and this time with four police officers, staring us down. That didn't deter us - we prayed together as we planned to and then found a place to witness outside the Mall. The council officers followed us and remained staring at us across the road from the Mall for a long while, before possibly finding something more important to do.
We had a lovely afternoon of evangelism chatting to various people - from a guy named Carrey who thought of himself as a god, to a young man from Brazil named Jerome who was very open to hearing the gospel and is going to now seriously consider repenting and trusting in Christ. Please pray for all those who heard the gospel today or took a gospel tract.
Glory to God alone!
