Well what a wonderful day at the bay. I got to Redcliffe at about 1:50pm and noticed that my phone had gone flat and I didn't get the messages from the other guys that they were busy. So sitting there reading my Bible and praying and then I looked up and sure a old family friend that worked with my mum, who I haven't seen in over 15 yrs (sad that I don't normally forget a face). I'd heard that he was a pastor somewhere so I thought I'd go catch up. Once he remembered me we got talking about Godly thing, he's not a pastor anymore but he was encouraged that I was out there working for the Lord. I left him with 'Are you a good person' Tract.
Noticing that the other guys weren't there yet it was 2:30pm so I thought if there still coming they'll know where to find me, so i moved out the the pire.
Using the WOTM 'Christmas Card' tract I was able to get a tract to 95% of the people that came out there that day. Only having 2-3 rejected. Praise God and pray for all those that received the word of God.
Not really able to get into a full on 1-1 with people but trying where possible, the time was nearing the end and I'd given a card to a older fellah and his wife. Then waiting for the last 2 people out there so I could tract them and then the couple from earlier came back and he started to question me and my beliefs and back ground. Sensing that they were involved in a church somewhere. I put it back on he with the same questions. all he could say was "believe me we are more spiritual then you and that all I need to say". "All religions have there way of pleasing God which in the end will get them to heaven". So I dealt with that pretty quick even thought he was trying to walk away I kept giving him more questions. Then moving onto the Law and thats where he said thats enough we need to go. 1 finial question again "where do you go to church" He's reply "we are Anglican and and more spiritual. Seeya" so that was that it goes to show that where light of Jesus Christ is pointed at the darkness with the law, people tend to run every quickly straight back into the darkness. But remember God is ALL powerful, ALL knowing, and ALL seeing, he sees your deeds, and your thoughts. So facing him on judgement you WILL NOT be able to deign them, so deal with now while there is still time.
Go serve your King
