Praise God that 2 Bibles were given out today!
Here are some interactions that God ordained:
- Pray for God's Mercy to save Buddy. He said he was very interested in reading the Bible. He has tracts and a booklet of John and was encouraged that our greatest need is to be made right with God. The booklet of John has a plan at the front explaining salvation, he also has a Booklet “ Why I Believe the Bible is True” by Bill Newman. Buddy was explained how our sin separates us from God’s Holiness and he was encouraged in the gospel. He says he will drop by in a fortnight with how he is doing.
- A man named John wanted a Bible and said that he wants to compare it with his Catholic Bible. Unfortunately he has been influenced by incorrect teaching. He wasn't deeply concerned about his sin. Pray for God’s grace to use the words spoken to him and the tracts to convict his heart of sin and help him come to understand his need of Jesus our saviour. Pray God will lead him to saving faith alone in the work of Jesus and nothing he has done can save him.
- Pray for Raymond who I spoke to on the 8th June. He was given tracts and a Gospel of John booklet back then but he hasn't been reading and still not receiving the Gospel. He is struggling over sin. Pray God will bring to light this sin to convict his heart of his desperate need of Jesus. Pray the Lord to bring him to true repentance and receive God's Spirit to give him a new heart to want to trust & obey Jesus because of what He has done to save us!
- I got to speak again with Rowan the RI teacher from 12th June who has taught RI for 33 years in schools. Rowan says she wants to continue teaching and to stand firm on teaching the truth of the Bible that Jesus is the only way to our heavenly Father. She says if the restrictions the school is placing on her stops her from teaching this truth she won’t continue. Rowan needs encouragement that God is in control even when we see so much evil in the world, He is using everything for good. Thank you Lord for these teachers in the schools that You are using for the children to hear about You.
- Leara a young mother encouraged me by saying...good on you! She says she is a believer and she held my hand and prayed for the work being done that God is doing in bring people to know Him. She had her children and had to go but I was able to give her an 'Are you a good person' booklet and to look into the ministry website. I also encouraged her she too can hand out tracts and be part of the work God is doing through the ministry where ever she goes, as she will go places that I don’t go.
It’s so easy to leave tracts in public places and hand out to shop workers or to attendants at the petrol station etc. It’s getting the Gospel message to the people, God does the saving work and will lead His people to seek Him out.
If you could pray for workers for Warwick in the work of evangelism here on the streets, as I'm on my own and it is good to have other Christians to work together for many reasons.
All Praise and Glory to our wonderful loving Father full of perfect love kindness patience mercy and grace.
