Operation 513 Battle Log for Toowong Village on September 8, 2020 from 1330 to 1500
Today was a warm day . It was also a bit dry despite it is just he beginning of Spring into its 2nd week. The dryness applied also to today outreach. It was rare that all the four team mates persistently face rejection and got comparatively less divine chatting appointment for Gospel sharing conversation. This was particularly a testing lesson for the new members Yan Chang who joined us the 2nd time after a long rest. We all have to learn that , God is in control in all circumstances and there is always a lesson for us to learn to be patience and submit to God's timing and plan.
Comparatively, Winnie had got the most number of conversation. So it also shows that the election of God to be His messenger does not depend on our experience and skill level. It is all the sovereign work of God in operation. All is needed is trust and obey.
Recap below is the four significant conversations I had after being rejected numerous times.
1) A Black Christian did not stop when Winnie approached him. But when he took his seat to wait for the bus, he responded to my approach asking what the tract is. When he found out it is a gospel tract, he declared he is a Christian. I immediately switched to ask him the two diagnosis questions. But it was too late to get a response as the bus just came by that time. Anyhow, the man express His respect to our street evangelism ministry. Hopefully he will be motivated to do likewise.
2) Another Old man also rejected Winnie's approach but agreed to talk while waiting for the bus. The bus came very fast. I could only manged to share the nutshell of the gospel and handed him a tract.
3) A Muslim background UQ student showed initial rejection. I changed tactic to chat on migration policy and finally shared the full gospel before teh bus arrived.
4) Oscar was the only one who show receptive attitude toward gospel. He was very attentive and agreed on whatever I shared. Pray for him to read the tract and touch by God for a fruit bearing conversion.
第一位遇上的是澳洲少女，Celina, 她願意信靠主耶稣基督。第二位是中国青年，初時他不願意接受單章，後來當他停下 查看巴士時間時，我行過去 問他認識耶穌基督嗎？跟着傳講福音给他，當我講完後，巴士到達。第三位是 Tegan, 澳洲女士，當她遇見 Johnny時，不願意留下聽福音。當她坐下，我嘗試問她願意查考你是否一個好人。她願意 便傳了福音给她。第四位，澳洲少女，Angella，願意接受耶稣基督。第五位，Leo, 澳洲男士，聽完福音後，他説要詳细想清楚。
留下聽福音的人，不是我們選擇的，是神預早安排好给我們的。有的人不願意留下聽我講的，願意聽關牧師講的。有的不願意聽 Johnny 講的，卻願意聽我講的。所以完全都是神的安排，固此我們要順服神的带领。感謝讚美主 今天學到的功課 是要信靠顺服。
