After an extended hiatus, OP513 Essex went and evangelized Romford High St on Saturday September 19th. The team consisted of Chuck, Jacob and Myself (Andrew). We found a location to speak in front of a closed shop. We prayed for God to bless our meager efforts and then proceeded to preach the Gospel and hand out tracts.
While I was preaching the others handed out tracts and had one to one conversations. There were no hecklers but quite a few pedestrians stopped and listened. I spoke from Luke 16 about Lazarus and the Rich Man. Specifically about how if people will not hear "Moses and the Prophets" (aka the Bible), neither will they believe if one was to rise from the dead (aka see a miracle). Peoples hearts need to changed by the Holy Spirit before they will believe and then I talked about sin, repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus.
Chuck spoke after me and during this time, I was approached by a young Philippine man who asked about the ministry and my theology. As the conversation developed he explained that the church he attends (not a jehovahs witness church) does not believe in the Triune nature of God. I began to show him some salient verses where Jesus is explicitly named "theos" or God. He listed intently and was very courteous. We later exchanged numbers and he suggested we meet up for a bible study to discuss the the topic further.
I later spoke a second time, and again expounded on the Luke 16 passage to which a number of pedestrians stopped and listened. We wrapped up the event with prayer and asked for God to use the tracts and preaching to save his people! SDG.
