Battle Log of Operation 513 for Toowong on Tuesday August 29th 2023 from 1330 – 1500
Despite we are moving forwards into Spring in just a couple of days. The weather turned cool with looming rain. It nevertheless did not hinder our passion to serve God by the regular street outreach at Toowong, Sunnybank and the Gold Coast. Actually, scattered rain fall did pour down while we were doing outreach at the bus stop. Again, it did not impose any inconvenience but rather helping us to keep people stay put under the Bus stop cover for longer conversation. The spiritual atmosphere was in mixed status, we encountered both receptive and rejective reaction from our gospel targets. It anyway is the norm as making people aware of our imperfection or sin is not a pleasant thing to do. We simply surrender our all to the Lord to play our role of priesthood for all nations. It reminds us Johnny, Chi Ming & Hung to work as a team and support each other in volatile and unstable circumstances in His strength. Recap below is the Battle Log of Hung.
1) I first was led to catch up with Aladder an Aussie girl at the end of the queue for bus to buy more time for a chat. She was friendly and open for a chat even though she is not a religious person. But she remained open and receptive to the message shared and promised to ponder seriously at home to make this step of faith to accept Jesus as her saviour.
2) Then I was moved to approach a mature man from Colombia who has come for 8 months. He admitted he is not religious despite the Catholic background of his country. He patiently chatted with me for a while and excuse to leave for his part time work as a student.
3) Then I connected with another Local Aussie Gary who is a worker but not a student. He was OK for the chat and took a tract to read.
4) Then I was moved to catch up with Henry a Kiwi who was very open to chat about both spiritual and secular things. He did not reject God but also not feeling imminent need to connect with Him. He took a tract to read at the end.
5) Then I got hold of a Mainlander girl who was OK for a chat but appeared very conservative and not open to the gospel.
6) Next I caught up with a Taiwanese girl and she was more open for a chat on life issue and admitted that she need to address the issue of imperfection.
7) Then I caught up with another mainlander male and he deemed there may be perfect person in the world for argument sake?????At least his willingness to communicate and share his own view was good for opening the chance to share the full gospel to him.
8 ) Encountered two rejections by an Indian or Pakistanis and then also a Chinese girl who was on the phone.
9) Suen Suen ? a Singapore girl ? who was sceptical initially but God soften her heart for a very friendly chat of life issue. She also is not religious in mind but admit the gospel message worths deeper thinking in her heart to take an important faith action to address the imperfection issue of human sin. She took a tract to remind her about our conversation.
