Battle Log of Operation 513 for Toowong on Tuesday Nov 14th, 2023 from 1330 – 1500
It was another scorching high noon day. Despite the temperature was registered as 29C, the actual heat at the bus stop is not a 100C furnace. Johnny and Hung simply treated it as part of the training to share the Gospel irrespective of the circumstances. Actually, the greater challenge is still the stone hard of most of the Mainlander people. Johnny learnt from one of the mainlander Christian he met at Sunnybank that, double the inflow of Mainlander students will be coming to Australia, yet all of them have been pre-warned not to Chat with local people about religion and politics. It reflects immediately for the current high rejection rate from the Mainlanders. Nevertheless, we still approached targeted people by the led of the Holy Spirit. Recap below is the Battle Log of Hung.
1) I was moved to approach two students from Macau, ??, who should be more open then the Mainlander students. Both came for post graduate study and show little interest in religion. I nevertheless still managed to share them the nutshell of the gospel.
2) Reunited with two very keen mainlanders ????who behaviour exceptionally open to gospel. They actually have met either of us many times. So our catching up conversation are meant for another chance to invite them to make the last step of faith.
3) Lily from Northern QLD, recognized me and claimed we had chatted before. So I asked if she got the point of the tract which I found out later that was not yet the case. So reiterated the main lesson of the tract and appealed her to ponder deeper to see if she is not perfect enough that required for the salvation of Christ.
4) Then I caught up with Li? from Beijing, (??)who have come here as interchange students (??? for three months only. She was comparatively opened and was OK to listen to the gospel and took a tract afterwards.
5) Then I caught up with a couple from Chengdu????who were moving ?? from Sunnybank to students hostel in St Lucia. They were reluctant listeners and refused a tract.
6) I caught up with a Korean atheist who is indifferent to the gospel but still listen reluctantly and took a tract afterwards.
7) Then I caught up next with a big fellow from Jiangsu Nanchong?????who was a willing listener to the gospel??. He was attentive to the message as such he almost missed his bus.
8 ) Yet another brief chat ??with a Mailander girl?, as her bus came fairy quick.
9) Snay is an Aussie girl with a French name but parents are from Welsh. She was very friendly and polite to listen to the full gospel sharing even though she is of Catholic Chrisitan background. I tested for her assurance of salvation which she failed. But was happy to be clarified with the correct attitude.
