We only started with two of us on the team last night at the start of the outreach in Brisbane city due to the rain, but after praying for more labourers, we ended up with 10 of us! The city was quite busy with people and I knew that being a rainy night, there were going to be lots of gospel conversations to be had.
We talked with a variety of people, including a Satanist, some Muslims and Atheists. We also talked with a man from Istanbul who is currently studying in Brisbane. He said he was brought up as a Christian but now denies God's existence and lives life his own way.
Interestingly, he quickly came to realise that God exists, after we pointed out that things made must have had a maker for them. So we talked about sin and how the only way of forgiveness is through repentance and faith in Christ. This man saw this conversation as a wake up call from God. But he expressed how he loves sin. His name is Aras. Please pray for Aras as he counts the cost of following Christ.
It was also wonderful to hear of another answer to prayer last night. Someone on the team has been praying for his father's friends who are Muslims, that they would hear the gospel, and last night these men happened to be walking through Queen St Mall and someone on the team witnessed to them. Praise God how He answers prayer!
To God be the glory.
