Day 4 of the Summer Mission to Christchurch.  A hot day today, so we decided to hit Sumner Beach with a chilly bin of cold soft drinks to give away with the gospel message!  But first we headed to the central city to: hand out tracts, for some "walk up" & flip chart conversations, and to preach in the Square.

Once at the beach, we simply walked up to groups of people offering them a cold drink and starting a conversation.  Some people appreciated the drink, but it was clear they didn't want to hang around for too long - those conversations went quickly, but the law and gospel was still able to be presented.  Others were keen for a chat, and would ask great questions.  1 engaged young lady even said "I'd always wondered what Christianity was about" - now she knows, but she was warned that it wasn't simply something to understand intellectually, a call to repent and trust Jesus was given.

We appreciate your prayers as we head into Day 5 tomorrow, before taking a much needed rest on Saturday.
