On Friday night, we were thankful to God for raising up a team of labourers despite of heavy rain and thunderstorm that was forecasted for the Gold Coast. As we started preaching the gospel, there was no sign of rain but rather a packed crowd of young and old at Surfers Paradise.
While the team was handing out tracts, a 10 year old brother and sister stopped by to receive tracts and the brother started reading the tract out loud in a serious tone of voice, "Are you ready to face your Creator?". He then told his sister, "I don't think I am ready!" He continued to read the whole tract as they kept walking.
After some time, they returned back to the "Free Bibles and Resources" table and wanted to know whether they can have a Bible. Before leaving with the free Bible, they stopped by with their mother to hear the open-air preaching. There was another girl around similar age group, who was sitting on a bench nearby with her mother attentively listening to the gospel being preached. She too approached us and took a tract and a Bible to read.
We praise God for bringing along these children and let us continue to pray that God will do a deep work in these little ones hearts. May the name of our Lord Jesus Christ be glorified above all. Amen.
