The Essex team met at Brentwood High St ruins Saturday 29th. This weeks team included Mark, Ruth, Nina, Elyske, Ben and myself totaling 6 evangelists. The weather was quite rainy but we went out in obedience and faith praying God would bless our simple efforts.
Mark managed to have a few conversations in the rain and Ben and Elyske both handed multitude of tracts out. Nina and Ruth both shadowed me and we passed a number of tracts out to any and everybody who would brave the rain and take one. We decided to go into the Baytree shopping center to take a little shelter and see if we can pass some more tracts out.
On the way there I began a conversation with a gentleman named Richard. He said that his grandmother tried to "get some religion into him" as a young man, however he had a very willing ear to listen to all i had to say. We discussed the Law of God and its requirements for sinful man and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We further proceeded into proofs of Gods existence such as the cosmological argument and my favorite the transcendental argument as used by Van Till.
I encouraged him to read his Bible and think seriously about our conversation. I pray God will grow this seed of truth in his life. The Gospel was preached, the efforts were successful. SDG!
The Essex OP513 team was on Brentwood High St this Saturday, lead by Andrew Noble and accompanied by Ruth Weil. We were quite thin on the ground this week but the weather was sunny which was a big change to previous weeks, so I was hoping folks would be more comfortable to stop and chat.
Ruth and I had our first conversation with a young man named David. He classified himself as a "spiritualist" and believed all paths lead to "God". We chatted about the nature of truth, the claims of Jesus according to scripture and his accountability before God in breaking the moral law.
We also spoke to two separate groups of young boys who found the million pound notes fascinating. Even at such a young age the understanding of morality and accountability was prevalent. One of the boys took a gospel of John and then every other boy wanted one! They even thanked us for explaining what the Bible says regarding sin, death and righteousness.
Many tracts were passed out to the public and we pray that God will bless those that read them and grant them salvation! SDG!
