We used the sketchboard again last night at our outreach at the Gold Coast. It is a great visual way to help people understand the gospel.
After one of the presentations, a number of people took gospels of John because they wanted to learn more, including a teenager who seemed very open to the gospel. We talked with him further. His mum is a psychic and his dad is very opposed to the Christian message, and ended up dragging him away telling him not to listen to anything we were saying. But the son had heard the message and received a gospel of John. Please pray for this young man.
Salvation is in God's hands. To God be the glory!
After a long hiatus, the Essex OP513 group met up in Romford to preach the Gospel. I was joined by Chuck and Jacob and we found a suitable spot and prayed. I preached from Mark 7 and a few pedestrians stopped and listened. This led into conversations with Chuck and Jacob.
Chuck spent a while chatting with this Muslim man who said he was looking for the truth...
Jacob was chatting with various people as he handed out Gospel tracts.
Chuck preached after me, during which a few other local Christians turned up and joined us in evangelism.
The day ended well with the Gospel proclaimed in Romford!! SDG
An encouraging outreach at Woodridge today.
Three weeks ago, one of the team spoke to a young lady named Demmi. She initially refused a tract and said she was Buddhist. By the end of the conversation she was questioning Buddhism but said she couldn't become a Christian because her Dad said that that is not allowed. So she was going to count the cost.
Today, she returned saying she has left Buddhism and is now a Christian, and so is her Dad! Her Dad is now trying to evangelise to his sister. Praise God for all that He does!
It is always a joy and a privilege to share the gospel, and doing so at the Gold Coast last night was no exception.
As we were walking back to the car, a young guy who I handed a tract to said "You have spoken to me before." So I asked whether he has been thinking about what I said.
He responded by saying he is now converted, trusting only in Jesus for his forgiveness and is fighting against his sin. He has been praying daily and attending a local church. But he didn't have a Bible, so I was able to give him one and encouraged him to start reading it daily.
He was very thankful to receive one. His name is Liam. Please pray for him.
Praise God for saving a people for His name!
Riverfire is one of the busiest night of the year in Brisbane where thousands flock to the city to watch fireworks. Operation 513 provided all the gospel tracts for free to be handed out at the event. We can only do this thanks to generous supporters of this ministry.
All praise be to God!
People will go to great lengths to conjure up arguments against the God they know exists. This Saturday night was a prime example of that, with someone claiming that because she doesn't have a footprint of Jesus therefore He didn't exist.
To God be the glory!
"The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few" was especially evident on Saturday night in Brisbane city. We had a very low number of team members and yet God brought in lots of people to hear the preaching.
To God be the glory!
Another glorious night of sharing the gospel in Brisbane city.
We've seen in the Bible how God spoke through a donkey, now we've seen God speak through an Atheist. Watch the following video from the night:
Here is another video from the outreach, where Balazs recounts a conversation he had with two young ladies:
Listen how God brought along some encouragement for a Christian sharing their faith after dealing with a bunch of Atheists going off their nut.
May the following video from the night encourage and challenge you to go and share your faith.
To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.
It sure was an interesting evening tonight with lots of people trying to stop the gospel going out, but it simply drew in a larger crowd. Watch an evolutionist support his belief in evolution, see a universalist argue against Scripture, but ultimately rejoice because Christ is proclaimed!
Watch the following 4 and a half minute entertaining video report from the night.
All glory to God!
