Operation 513 Battle For Toowong on Tuesday Dec 7, 2021 from 1330 to 1500
Today was rainy in the morning but it turned completely sunny in the afternoon. Winnie could not join us to day as she had to join the GCCCC Church function to meet and welcome the new Pastor of the Cantonese Congregation who is from Hong Kong. So just Johnny and Hung were teamed up to do our regular street evangelism. Johnny again decided to switch venue to the front entrance of Toowong Village on Sherwood Street to let the Spirit to guide us to stop the passer by on the street. As previously experienced, it is a more challenging task to stop someone who are mostly in a hurry. By the grace of God, Johnny still got a handful of conversations. As for me, I choose the approach of putting on my shoes of the peace of Gospel to get permission to walk and talk with the gospel target to share them the gospel with results all in the hand of God. Recap below is the Battle Log for Hung: -
1. A group of three youngsters believed to be freshly graduated grade 12 students walking pass on their way to a job appointment. Johnny gave a tract to them and one boy took it but kept walking on. I gave a tract to another person and asked if I could walk with them for a short while before they needed to cross the traffic light down at the end of the Sherwood Road. They were nice and cheerful guys paying genuine attention to the sharing of Gospel and giving me positive acknowledgement to the significance of this message for their eternal existential well being. They needed to wait for a shirt while at the traffic light, so I was able to made a wrap up appeal to take this message seriously and make their spirit guided decision. They all cheerfully nodded to do so.
2. When I returned to the standing pole position of Johnny. I was able to get a Middle East Man with a Muslim style of beard to accept the tract. I intended to do the same walk and talk but he need to enter into the office building for work. But at least I pass on to him the requirement of God to call us to be perfect that can only be done first by allowing Jesus to redeem us from the slavery of sin to become a free soul in Christ that is right for God to start His life transformation work.
3. Then God led me to pick up a lady from China who did not mind to let me walk and talk with her. I can sensed the gospel message was new to her though on the other hand I can feel that she is trained under atheist CCP so she was taking a cautious stance to just listen and showed no interaction on the surface. In her heart she was willing to listen and to know more about Jesus. At the end, I walked the longest distance of the day to escort her to a far away bus stop. My sharing was finished just in time when her bus came at the same time we get to that bus stop. She di not leave me her name but God knows it all.
4. Finally, as soon as I got back to our street outreach outpost, God led me to catch up with an Australian born Vietnamese lady called Tammy. She was also very welcoming and accommodating to let me share the gospel to her. She appeared listening and absorbing all message with a more open mind than the Chinese lady a moment ago. Her destination was unknowingly very far reaching. So I let her go at yet another traffic light and bid her good bye but encouraging her to make up her faith decision when she has time to stay calmly in per private quiet time.
