It has been an amazing week of Christmas outreaches in Brisbane city, with 15,000 Christmas gospel tracts going into people's hands just last week.
But as one week finishes, another begins. This week we have an outreach scheduled for every evening in King George Square from 7pm (except Friday which will be at the Gold Coast). It is such a great opportunity to get the gospel out to people at this time of year and so we encourage you to come along. Or if you cannot, please be praying.
The team have been having some very fruitful conversations with people too, like with a young man named Justin last night who said that he hasn't grown up in a religious home at all so he doesn't know much about Christianity whatsoever. But he said he knew there had to be a creator. So we went through the law of God and he came to realise his sin and his need for a Saviour. He had heard that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, but had no idea what that meant. I explained that Jesus took our Hell punishment for us on our behalf, and he said, "Oh that makes sense!"
He said he was a logical guy and wanted to investigate more, and so I gave him a gospel of John and Lee Strobel's book "The Case for Christmas" which he was very thankful to receive. It has been really handy having the free Christmas resources table, as lots of people have been taking things from it throughout each night's outreach. In fact we have completely run out of kids resources like the "The Beginner's Bible - the First Christmas". We are aiming to get some more for this week's outreaches.
To God be all the glory!
