So far it has been another amazing week of evangelism in Brisbane city for Christmas. We have two nights to go (tonight and tomorrow night - Christmas eve). Please be praying for all those who will receive a gospel tract or has a chat with the team.
People are very much more open to the things of God at this time of year. We pray that many would come to salvation.
On Tuesday night, we spoke to a young woman named Nairi, who told us that she has never thought about where she is going to spend eternity if she was to die tonight. She was from Lutheran background and seemed to know about the death of our Saviour on the cross but did not fully understand the gospel message.
During the conversation, Nairi's mother dropped by and asked her to wait by our resources table until she returns back. We praise God as this just gave us more time to explain the truth of the gospel to Nairi. Before her Mum came by, we pleaded her to put her trust in Jesus Christ and gave her a copy of the Gospel of John from our free resources table which she was very thankful to receive.
The team also spoke to a Brazilian couple named Renato and Vanessa who came to enjoy the City hall lights. When we asked them the reason for celebrating Christmas, they said, "we know it has something to do with Jesus but we don't know much about him". So we happily shared the gospel with them. They seemed really attentive and Vanessa was even translating in Portuguese language for Renato who spoke very little English. Before departing, the couple thanked us for the gospel tract and said they will consider everything that has been said.
To God be all the glory!
