Today I set up my flip chart in Cashel Mall, and then walked down a bit to meet team members coming to join me. We turned around to head back to the chart, and a small group of people had already gathered around it! 1 of the team took the initiative and jumped in and a gospel conversation was away - as easy as that.
We had a new team member today, so a 2nd chart was set up on the other side of the mall and a quick demonstration on how to use it started. But then we noticed a guy watching us, so we invited him over and a real flip chart gospel conversation occurred! Nothing better than a live demonstration :)
Gospel conversations were started - with and without the flip chart. There was even an opportunity to pull out a Bible and have a discussion around the correct meaning of a verse.
Tomorrow, the yearly summer mission will start - a 2 week short term mission to... Christchurch! We have a chilly bin, ice, and cans of drink ready to give away and as a conversation starter. Please keep the Christchurch team in your prayers over the coming 2 weeks of outreach. Regular reports will be posted.
