The Essex UK Team met on the Romford High Street, an old market town 20 miles east of London, on Saturday, NOVEMBER 24.  Jacob, Andy and I preached, handed out tracts and sought conversations.  

The crowds were pretty good with a lot of Christmas shoppers, but the atmosphere seemed subdued.  Most adults did not stop to listen to the street preaching, but children and young adults listened.  I preached first from 2 Corinthians 5:17. You are a new creation in Christ Jesus. The Lord takes out the heart of stone and puts in a heart of flesh.  What better gift to give to your family than a new new?  Come to Jesus and He will make you a new creation in Christ through repentance and faith.  It was a bit tongue-in-cheek, but I noticed couples looking at each other at the thought of a new man who loved the wife or a new woman.who respected the husband and new children who obeyed the parents and did their homework.  I also touched on Dicken's Christmas Carol and how Jacob Marley had created the heavy chain he had to bear through eternity through his own deeds.  I finished with a recitation of Psalm 103.  A girl of 8 was fascinated with my street preaching.  She kept listening. Finally her mother got her to leave, but she and her two siblings all waved good-bye with broad smiles.  I gave a New Testament to Laurence in a wheelchair.  He said, "No one has seen God!"  "Yes", I replied.  "Now we only see through a glass darkly, but then we will see face to face."  

Andy preached next from Mark 7:20.  It is what comes out of a man that defiles him. A boy came up and interrupted him and offered him a sweet.  Two youth about 14 listened Andy for several minutes but they didn't seek out a conversation.  

"Have a sweet!" 

 

Jacob handed out tracts and had a number of conversations.  He spoke quite a while with three young men about the truth of God's words.  They were skeptical, but Jacob defended the veracity of the Bible and the good news of the Gospel.
