Great night of outreach in Brisbane last night. We brought in 30+ New Testaments for the free Bible table, all went out. A few members of the team commented to me after the outreach saying that they spoke to a number of really receptive people tonight.
Our prayer that we prayed at the start of outreach was that God would prepare people's hearts to hear the gospel. He answered that prayer.
One such person I spoke to whose name was Danny. He mentioned that this last week he was speaking to a friend about how to get to Heaven and both of them were not sure. Then on Friday while at work up in Cairns a customer gave him a Bible. Then on Saturday (yesterday) he moved from Cairns to Brisbane and then at night he happened to be walking in Queen Street and came across our outreach, and I asked him whether will go to Heaven.
He said he sees these things as a sign from God that he should find the way to Heaven. So I explained to him about sin, the judgement to come, grace, repentance and faith. He came to understand the gospel, and so I encouraged him to count the cost of following Christ, but at the same time without delay, come to saving faith. He thanked me for the chat and said he is going to do that and start reading the Bible that he got the day before.
Please pray for him and all the others who heard the gospel.
All Glory to God!
