Battle Log of Operation 513 for Sunnybank on Wednesday Nov 9th, 2022 from 1300 – 1500

Today it was the 2nd time I had to do solo which possibly will remain a norm for a while when Johnny is now back to Taiwan. Other potential team mates were all not available today. Praise be to the Lord, the weather was cooler than yesterday at Toowong, but the people flow was also quite low leaving me waiting at the bus stop for prolonged period. By the grace of God, I still made several meaningful contact especially the last one which was so obviously a divine appointment leading me to meet a person not waiting for the bus but his car under maintenance service as recap below.

1) I was led to approach a Sri Lankan by the name Innocent. We quickly identified with each other as we came to Australia more or less the same time. He is a cleaner but he is proud of his work even though back in Sri Lankan, cleaner is regarded as a grass root low level job. I use this to kick off the gospel sharing that whether a good person with a good job as a dignified good person would be save enough to launch himself into heaven rather than hell. He was in total agreement with the logic or rationality of the Gospel though finally he indicated he is a Buddhism follower though his dad is a catholic Christian. I emphasized to him that religions are good but incapable of bringing g a solution to address sin and punishment. He promises to ponder further with my tract.

Agreeable to the gospel

2) Then I was led to approach a lady from Henan. She was opened to the gospels but it was a pity the bus came too quick. But she asked for a tract and pray for God's follow up work.  

3) Next came a young man from Shandong, he was very serious to listen and showed genuine interest to know more about God and the gospel especially when I told him Shandong have experienced many wave of revival. The founder of the Back To Jerusalem" BTJ movement was also from Shandong.

4) Then I was led to approach another lady from China she said she was in a hurry but I said as long as you need to wait for the bus, I can chat with here as long as possible until the bus came. So finally, she turned relax to listen to the full gospel and find it convincing and acceptable. At the end, she got a tract for revision of the message I shared.  

5) Finally God led Thomas, a Slovakian Catholic to come to the side bench near the bus stop. But he was there not waiting for the bus yet his car under maintenance service. So he was in complete relax mode for a long chat. I started to identify with his country and their Father of the Nation Václav Havel OC (Czech pronunciation: 5 October 1936 – 18 December 2011) was a Czech statesman, author, poet, playwright, and former dissident.[1][2] Havel served as the last president of Czechoslovakia from 1989 until the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1992 and then as the first president of the Czech Republic from 1993 to 2003 and was the first democratically elected president of either country after the fall of communism. As a writer of Czech literature, he is known for his plays, essays, and memoirs. 

Havel's Civic Forum party played a major role in the Velvet Revolution that toppled the Communist system in Czechoslovakia in 1989. He assumed the presidency shortly thereafter, and was re-elected in a landslide the following year and after Slovak independence in 1993. Havel was instrumental in dismantling the Warsaw Pact and enlargement of NATO membership eastward. Many of his stances and policies, such as his opposition to Slovak independence, condemnation of the treatment of Sudeten Germans, such as the expulsion of Germans from Czechoslovakia after World War II, and granting of general amnesty to all those imprisoned under the Communist era, were very controversial domestically. By the end of his presidency, he enjoyed greater popularity abroad than at home. Havel continued his life as a public intellectual after his presidency, launching several initiatives including the Prague Declaration on European Conscience and Communism,[4][5] the VIZE 7) Foundation, and the Forum 2000 annual conference.

Then I returned to the diagnosed question testing for his Assurance of Salvation which sadly is very low. I took the chance to revisit the plan of God and how all people are saved by grace through faith in Christ as such we should have 100% assurance of Salvation. He thanks me a lot and we took the only selfie for the day.

Battle Log of Operation 513 for Sunnybank on Wednesday Nov 9th, 2022 from 1300 – 1500

We were overjoyed to have Joe re-joining us after a period of his overseas trip. It was a pity he messed up the time and came an hour earlier to do solo. I was barely OK to meet with him for a short while then he had to leave for his own work from home office hour. Johnny missed meeting Joe, not just this week but for a long time to go as he will leave for Taiwan on Friday. SO, in a sense God is good to move Joe to re-join us to take the place of Johnny so that we still can manage to form a team.

Again, Johnny experienced many gracious divine appointment meeting new and old people with good fruit bearing result. As for me, it was a normal day with mixed result of blunt rejection or opened mind opened arm reception. Of course, there were even more gracious kind of conversation started with initial reluctance of even rejection but through the work of the Holy Spirit, the gospel message still could be conveyed to the gospel target elected by God. Recap below is the Battle Log of Hung>

0) I first approached a lady for a short chat before I caught up with Joe. The bus came too quick to get her away.

1) Mzra an Indonesia young students whom Johnny had contacted before. But he appeared still very polite to let me follow up on his understanding and perception of the last conversation as well as the tract. Basically, he tried initially to uphold the Islamic teaching but later he did find difficulty to discount the sensibility and logicality of the gospel especially about the treatment of sins. He was in obvious struggle, so I left him to the hand of God to bring eventual conviction to the truth of the salvation of Jesus.

2) A mainlander from Hebei Boding was waiting for friend as such I had a long time chatting with him. His initial reaction was blunt rejection but I changed my tactics ????????) ?? sharing with him my Chinese travelling experience to Beijing doing Walk on the Great Wall for charity. I led on to share about counselling for earthquake victim in 2008 and how the Counselling class can help people to fix their character changing life issues by means of the grace and power of God. He basically was moved by all these lives changing testimony and become receptive to the gospel at the end. ?????????

3) Then God led me to approach a young man by the name of Chung from Canton.?.???He came to do visual design at QUT ,???? and was opened enough to take in the gospel message in quite receptive manner.

4) Then I was led to approach a Filipino middle-aged lady who was also receptive to the full gospel message and took a tract.

5) Then I had a long chat with a Chinese descendant named Chan from Cambodian who is Cantonese speaking. ?????He declared he is a Buddhism follower????? But was willing to listen with good responses.

6) Then Sister Chang eventually turned up and this time God allowed enough time for me to clarify the confused understanding of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christa. ???????????

7) Then I was led to approach Mr Yang from Canton. ? ?????????????He came 10 years ago and was shocked by the aggressive way of Mormon . Now he came again but was conscious to avoid Mormon. He is not yet a Christian but is open and receptive to Christian gospel.

8 ) Lastly, I was led to approach a young man from Somalia called Ali and declared himself a Muslim. But he is still very open minded to listen to the full gospel with the stressed on the work of Jesus dying for our sins.

Battle Log of Operation 513 for Sunnybank on Wednesday Nov 2nd, 2022 from 1300 – 1500

It was a tough day, facing a lot of rejection and indifference. Nevertheless, it was a test of faith for us the blessed messenger to pass on the blessing to other people, same and or cross culture likewise. It was a day of mixed result, but also a day of submission exercise. Recap below was my Battle Log.

1) Three mainlanders?????; The first was single but appear very cocky and refused bluntly?the latter is a couple appeared a bit better with minimum politeness. They are from Suzhou???but still cling to declining for any more conversation.

2) The second I approached is a Hongkonger couple. They however claimed that they know the gospel and decline to have any more conversation ?????????

3) Then I was rejected consecutively by an Indian woman.

4) Then by the grace of God, I caught u with Jade a local Aussie girl who has heard the gospel before but she still was willing to listen and was engaging quite well into our conversation. She indicated her understanding of the gospel and promise to ponder further.

5) Then God led me to catch up with a cute follower the Five in One??????I first spent time to build relationship and connection???? letting her to share about her faith in the cult and tried to pick up points to show their faulty teaching.

6) Then I faced another round of rejection first by an old Chinese woman then a western people. ????; ????; ?????

7) Then I had a comparatively long chat with an elderly woman from HKG 55 years ago. ?????55??I tried to keep her interest by telling my personal salvation witness as well as the gospel. ???????????

8 ) Then I chatted with a man from Shandong who has just finished Uni here major in Database Science.???He actually is leaving Australia to do a PHD at Ireland. He showed great interest ??? in Christianity and attended a local Aussie Church???? at Woolloongabba. He has not yet made the last step of faith and I hope our conversation would push him over the line to receive Christ.

9) Madam ? from Hong Kong and was led to Christ by her daughter. Both of them are attending the Hope Church of Malaysia English speaking background. Her knowledge in the Bible is shallow and her faith is a bit young to have good enough understanding to establish assurance of salvation. She thanks for my sharing of the gospel anyway.

10) Have a chat with siter Chang and pray continuously for her real understanding about salvation. ?????

11) Then I approached a Muslim lady who asked for more tracts to hand out to her friends.

12) Helen a member of SDBC yet have a faulty understanding of salvation by grace through faith. So despite she has 100% assurance of salvation, yet it was built on the wrong understanding of good deeds. ??? Time was not enough to correct all her wrong thinking about faith and Christ.

Thanks God, Gary re-joined us to day despite he still has kids not well needing home car attention. It was again a testing day of ministry. While we had many good conversations even with the Mainlander Chinese that use to show rejection and indifference, but most of them today were quite opened and receptive. Yet on the other hand, God still allows some intentional gate crasher to disrupt our ministry. God also led two Mormon elders to approach me which I used to not approaching them directly any more, with or without a hidden agenda, I did do my best to test their faith against Christian core ground of faith as per the creed. Surprisingly they agreed them all. Obviously, it is almost impossible for a heretic group to correct all their false theology and complying 100% of the protestant faith and doctrine. So, they might have been trained to give false affirmation of their faith which is even an eviller doing. In, it demonstrated it is always a spiritual warfare that we cannot be apart from God for any single moment. We can only remain in Victorious ground in His strength and in His Name. Recap below is my Battle Log.

1) Jack, a Malaysian English-speaking couple, who claimed themselves atheist. But God still had softened their heart to have an open discussion on the gospel which at the end they cannot deny an iota of its truth and sensibility.

2) Eason quickly identified himself as Christian but lack of assurance of salvation. I briefly clarified it in 1 min before the bus arrived.

3) Mike a young man from Liao Ling, who said having a conversation with me few months ago. I asked if he still remember the teaching of the tract as well as my sharing and he said yes. I revise the nutshell of the gospel and he did show full and clear understanding. So, it is just about time that God will move him to make the last step of faith to receive Jesus Christ.

4) Then I was led to approach a Korean girl who claims herself an Atheist. I still tried to share the nutshell of the gospel to her though the bus quick arrival did not allow me to finish.

5) Then I was led to approach another mainland girl Li 李,from Xian西安。She studied social work but she said there is general lack of social justice sense and awareness in China as such there is almost no place for the profession of social worker in China.社工,She this comes to UQ to do a new degree on Education. 教育She was fully opened to the gospel as she realized good deeds are far from enough to change the society and oneself. So Christianity is a new appealing avenue for her to rediscovery true humanity in God.

6) Then God led me to approach a Vietnamese Chinese diaspora 越南華僑originally from Qiao Zhou祖藉潮州,He recognized us doing preaching of Gospel here 認識我們在傳教which he shows respect. But it is a pity the bus came to cut short our conversation.

7) Bido looks like a Palestinian but was very opened to chat. The bus came and he took initiative to take a tract and hope we can have another chat in future.

8 ) Two Mormons elder Chai and Elder Deng 柴長老。鄧長老 approached me as if we met before. Actually, they might have learned our present on Wednesday and tried to impose spiritual disturbance to our work. I simply wasted no time to learn any more about their Mormon teaching but challenged them if they accept Trinity, and if that Jesus is on of the person of the god head that he is not a lesser god but of equal; substance, power and glorify amongst the triune god. The we are saved by grace through faith in Christ alone, that none of us can earn the salivation by our good deeds, not even the two years of service that all Mormon have to commit. They amazingly all confirmed agreement which is the tricking point. It seems that now they are trained to acknowledge everything we said to misted us that their heretic teaching has now been rectified. It is just another trick of those cult and heresy.

9) Another Arabic looked person chatted with me for a while and he seemed to be a Christian addressing me as brother when bidding farewell

10) Jo another Kiwi but a PNG by birth claimed to be a Christian but has no assurance of salvation.

11) Then a faced a most difficult person whoever who is a self-righteous person who though he has thorough knowledge of the Bible but mixed everything up as a non-believer. He is the first person I have ever quitted on him wasting me no more time on a stone heart.

12) Approached yet another Gospel target yet just the bus came though he was not a willing listener.

13) Then I approached a person who read the tract immediately. He was yet another PNG person from a Christian family but not yet a Christian. He fully understands no one is perfect and we all need the salvation by Christ.

Battle Log of Operation 513 for Sunnybank on Wednesday September 19th, 2022 from 1300 – 1500

Today, it was the first time I did solo at any outreach ministry occasion. Johnny was sick with a sore throat and has been absent for both Toowong and Sunnybank. Gary was also not available being occupied by taking care of sicked children at home. Amy could not get child care for Joshua. So, I was the only left to do the Sunnybank Street outreach for the first time. I initially would not want to do it solo but recalling that Johnny had some solo experience while I was in the hospital. But the spiritual warfare impression was overwhelming despite I still cover the solo operations by prayer. Consecutively three initially approaches faced serious and heavy counter attack by a Muslim man, then a Malaysian Chinese who can speak Cantonese , then eventually a pro Communist atheist elderly that all three of them simply rendered you a deaf ears but one way attack God and Christianity with ridiculous secular thought.

By the grace of God, I got a few conversation after the first wave of attack and the encounter of Van Tha from Myanmar made my day. He is from a Christian family in Yangon. But he professes pure and correct understanding of the gospel with 100% assurance of salvation. His only problem is that he though he is readily turned perfect after receiving Christ which I clarified with him the complete god Kingdom and redemption project. He just came to Australia for Uni study at UQ and quickly made connection with other Myanmar Christians that they seemed to have started their own Myanmar indigenous Christian service in the Logan city. I was over joy to share with him the CFC vision to partner with the Myanmar Christian to plant and grow their indigenous Christian church. He gave me his email for future contact. So I was happy I did not miss this chance to get connected with a young Myanmar Christian for some possible future ministry partnership. I possibly can introduce him to M2M to see if he can liaise with his own Myanmar people to play a role in the 2nd shipment of supplies helping the Karen refugee. Van Tha himself is from the Chin tribes. Though Karan is not a tribe of Myanmar. They still belong to the same country. So, let see how God will make use of all these interpersonal connections to do His Kingdom Job.

Today the Sunnybank Outreach team reduced to just Johnny and Hung. Amy was not available as she needed to look after her son as child care service could not be booked. Again, the outreach targets to day here at Sunnybank were in great majority Chinese especially from Mainland China. But the average response was considered good showing the work of God ahead in their hearts. Johnny again could catch up with some previously met individuals. His last chat with Mr Leung from Guangzhou last almost half an hour leading him a step very close to salvation. As for Hung, God also gave many good chats with the mainland Chinese as per Battle Log recap below: -

1) Easton and a non-Christian friend are both from HKG. Easton himself is a Christian, but apparently his understanding of salvation is incomplete, yet the bus arrival cut short our conversation.

2) Tina a girl form mainland but claimed herself a Christian by birth from a Christian family. Yet she has no idea why she is saved and thought herself may have only 50/50 chance to be saved. It was again a pity the bus arrival deprived me of further chance to clarify her misconception about Salvation.

3) Then I was able to catch up with two middle age ladies from Hubei near Wuhan 湖北,武漢. My past extensive travelling experience in China gained their identification as a post China man. But when changing topic to share about Gospel. their hearts are also very softened to take in the message. The talkative lady left first with 朱園園Yuan Yuna Chu staying behind to listen to the full gospel and she responded very positively to the message and show willingness to pursuit the Christian faith. .

4) Ki a Korean seems not yet a Christian but understood the message with good receptiveness.

5) Then I caught up with another lady from North-eastern China. She was opened for chatting, but heart was not ready taking the gospel message lightly denying it is relevant to her.

6) Then I caught up with another Hongkonger who try to show she is a religious person but not a Christian and down play the need of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. She left rejecting a tract so as an afterthought, I might have met a cult follower.

7) Then I caught up with Chang Xiao Lan of the BCCMA Choir. Her faith status is suspicious and according to Johnny she has now switched to the Rock Church. I could not have time to diagnosis properly her faith understanding as she took initiative to know our church status.

8 ) Then another Hong Konger who appeared very courtesy and polite but she seriously take sin lightly and reject to take a tract.

9) Then I met the 2nd Korean today and he is also not a Christian. Basically, quite receptive to the gospel message.

10) Then I approached a couple with the man named Guo 郭from Henan Zhan Zhou河南鄭卅. He is very opened for conversation and respond to the gospel positively and took a tract at the end.

11) My last target is a Sri Lanka man. The conversation was all good though he is not yet a Christian. But he took in all the gospel message and admit he needs Jesus.

It was a day of great reunion with two of our long-missed team members, Gary and Amy. By the grace of the Lord, both are well and good for re-joining the street outreach. Another God's led new member Yi Ming Zhou also joined us through the introduction of Johnny. Yi Ming is a member of Sherwood Methodist and bible study group member of Johnny. They had a long discussion on theology and Yi Ming was finally moved to give it a go to join the street ministry. Johnny first introduced him to us and gave him so on the spot training than Yi Ming did his first outreach in His strength. Pray that he will keep coming because of his personal experience of the presence of God and have a full understanding of the meaning and scope of Great Commission.

Amy seemingly was having a good time with many opportunities of conversation. She even unknowingly had covered some gospel target that once rejected either me or Johnny. Gary as usual being very diligent and faithful to reach out to people passing by him.

As for me, I only had fewer conversation but a couple of them were very deep and long chat with prominent presence of the Holy Spirit to lead the gospel target to ponder deeper in the realms of God's glory through His Creation work that actually are scientifically sound. Recap anyway is the Battle Log of Hung.

1) I first approached a Chinese couple who claimed to be atheist 中國無神論 as such not interested to listen to the Gospel. I did not give up too easily and tried from a life issue angle to elaborate the question if being a good person alone will qualify us to Heaven. After a while, the man who talked still cold heartedly declined further chat.

2) The next one is a girl from Shanghai 上海who is a UQ student. She was initially a bit reluctant to listen but eventually, the Spirit softened her heart to listen the full gospel sharing and took a tract.

3) Then God made me a divine appointment with a local Aussie called Mitchell. He appeared as an Agnostic who viewed that God can be anything in the nature and human is just part of the nature and by conducting a good life , we can be part of that Godly existence in the world. Strictly speaking, Agnosticism is the view or belief that the existence of God, of the divine or the supernatural is unknown or unknowable and that "human reason is incapable of providing sufficient rational grounds to justify either the belief that God exists or the belief that God does not exist. The English biologist Thomas Henry Huxley coined the word agnostic in 1869, and said "It simply means that a man shall not say he knows or believes that which he has no scientific grounds for professing to know or believe. God moved me to first share him the Gospel then use the 6 days creation to show to him there are solid scientific ground to support the 6 days creation theory. He was a very good listener and might have unintentionally miss the bus to listen on which led him see the reality of the presence of God' He left with a mindset changed that Christianity has no conflict with science and he will ponder deeper to pursuit God.

4) Then I had another good chat with a UQ student with surname as Li李 who is from China, He was very receptive to the gospel despite a typical atheist nonbeliever brought up in the Communist China. But he admitted no one is perfect and there is a consequence we have to bear facing judgement after death. So, the Spirit really has moved him a big step closer to salvation.

5) Then I caught up with a middle-aged man from Hubei Wuhan武漢,he appeared very polite and humble to listen to the gospel after I show empathy to people of Wuhan having suffered a lot from the Covid19 originated from his home town. Though the chat did not last long enough, but he willing took the tract to read on the message I shared with him.

6) Then I talked to two Mansfield High school girls by identifying with them as a father of one of their Chinese teachers. Natalie responded positively to my approach and quickly claimed that both of them are Christian. The other girl was a bit shy so only Natalie was doing the talking. Her answer to the diagnostic question 1 is perfect. she has 100 % assurance of salvation, but the 2nd question, she was utterly wrong claiming it was because she believed she has comprised with all the Christian teaching and practicing a good Christian life. It took me a while to clarify her wrong understanding. She any attends the Logan City Church.

7) Finally, I approached a Filipino Lady who is also a Christian but seemingly with very shallow understanding of the Bible. I went through the gospel message with her just in time before her bus arrived.

Battle Log of Operation 513 for Sunnybank on Wednesday September 28th, 2022 from 1300 – 1600

It was a normal day for outreach with just Johnny and Hung as all others are not available during school term break caring for their kids. Sunny bank was with more people flow than Toowong yesterday. There were mixed responses from people we met but at the end of the day, both of us had many chances to share the Gospel to people of all nations. Both Johnny and Hung had more chances to catch up with people from Mainland China with better successful rate. Recap below is the Battle Log of Hung:

1) I first caught up with a young lady who is an ABC. Her parent is from Hunan Changshaé•·æ²™. She has been back to Changsha a couple of time. So, I could identify with her and earned her trust to listen to the gospel with good and positive result.

2) Then I approached a young man from Beijing 北京 to come for study having arrived in Brisbane for 2, 3 months. 剛開始來2、3月He claimed he is a member of the communist party yet he showed exceptional receptiveness to listen to the Gospel and took a tract. 黨員, 肯聴 & 拿單張

3) Seksayhj , a Cambodian who came to Australia at young age. He claimed he has a few Christian friends and even followed them to go to church a couple of times yet still just pursuing. I went through the full gospel with him and he appeared quite receptive to the gospel message with better and clear understanding.

4) I sat beside an Old Aussie who was not interested but I still shared the full gospel to him.

5) Then I approached three Africans but they claimed they cannot speak English.

6) Then I approached an Indonesian girl who simply avoided me by walking away to a far distance.

7) Then I shared with a lady from Mainland China who was willing to listen and took a tract afterwards. 中國女子.願意聽拿單張

8 ) Next I caught up with a Graffith student young man by the name of Jiang 姜from Nantung, Suzhou,南通蘇州半. He has come for half a year still adapting to the life in Australia. He was very talkative and willing to listen to the gospel.

9) Two young ladies from Beijing北京,and Shenzhen 深圳 respectively. They are students of UQ. Both were willing to listen to the gospel and we kept on chatting for a long while about the status of Christianity in China. 願聽,多聊

10) A approached a local Aussie lady who was friendly. Yet the bus came too quickly so she could only get a tract from me.

11) Finally, I caught up with a young lady from Shanghai who quickly identified herself as Christian. She once attended SIC. I tested on her assurance of salvation but found that she does not have full 100% assurance of salvation. She thanked for my clarification.

Battle Log of Operation 513 for Sunnybank on Wednesday September 21st, 2022 from 1300 – 1600

It was a gloomy afternoon, but not bad for street outreach. Since it is the beginning of school holiday as such both Gary and Amy were not able to join us with their kids to be cared for. As usual, Johnny and Hung teamed up to serve as a team. And the team work amongst us was very prominently used by God that we support and complement for each other’s. For instance, a young boy rejected the approach of Johnny, but the Spirit still moved me to have another go. Surprisingly, he was happy to have a good chat with me. Later on, there were other instances that God used both of us to deal with a group of people with better result. Recap below is the battle log of Hung.

1) A boy from Harbin, China 哈爾濱 bluntly rejected the approach of Johnny, but surprisingly accepted my 2nd for a chat. Actually, he earnestly told me he has read the tract that his Mum got from us. I tested if he really read the tract and he was able to tell a few examples how a good person may have committed some nitty gritty approach offence at young age. But he could not elaborate further the whole meaning and purpose of the tract so it gave me an opportunity to go over the full gospel with him which he found very interesting and sensible. I gave him an English tract and hopefully, God will use it to open further his heart for the making the last step of redemptive faith.

2) Then I was moved to approach a Malaysian馬 lady by the name of Lai. 黎She recognized my accent and volunteer to speak in Cantonese with me as such I immediately recognized also she is from KL. She also wasted no time to declare she is a Christian and passed my diagnostic test for assurance of salvation 清楚. We were thankful for this divine encounter and happily took a selfie.

3) Then I approached William from Quanzhou of Mainland China.中國人廣東 He was quite opened to chat and willingly took a tract when the bus came a bit too quick.

4) Next I was moved to catch up with another young man Wu from Wuxi , Jiang So. I was thrill to share about our early year tourist experience to Wuxi when China was not yet opened for tourism. 無錫聊天單張. My visit to his home town served an ice breaker to get us close for further chat on the gospel. Yet it was a pity the bus arrived so he took a tract to read. Pray that God will still use this as a seed sowing tool to prepare him for next divine encounter.

5) A group of youngsters with Aborigine blood messed around at the bus stop while I was still chatting with Wu, but Johnny daringly approached them to share the gospel and handed out tracts. They however were youngster too used to remain in an unsettled condition, moving around and talking nonsense to each other. I thus immediately joined hand with Johnny to take up a few of them that had already wander off from Johnny. I picked up a small boy with a thin statute, but he actually was a State trained boxer. I jokingly asked him if he is a MMA fighter as he kept plunging fist to the electrical lamp post. He corrected me that he is with the UBC league and have regular boxing tournament. I made use of this line to share with him that even you earn your way to become a state elite sportsman, but you cannot earn your way to heaven. Of course, my sharing cannot last long and he was readily disturbed to start another conversation with one of his peers. Anyhow, many of them had got the tracts and heard about the nutshell of the gospel and all we can do is to ask God for His follow up.

6) Then I approached two girls from Hong Kong as I overheard, they were speaking in Cantonese. Full Gospel was shared but no time for interaction so just also left them with tracts to read. 港女x2, 拿單張

7) Then I was approached by two Mormon preacher whom they called themself Elder Xia from California and Elder Phelan from Arizona. I wasted no time to challenge and ask them what they do they see of Jesus if he was just a good man as depicted by the name of Mormon as "Jesus Christ the Latter Day Saint" They fishily said Jesus is God, and not even a lesser God. Though they refused to use the term of Trinity, but upon my query, they agreed Jesus is not a lesser God but of equal power, glory and substance with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. At a point Johnny joined in to hold debate with them that they cannot answer. But on the other hands, they seemed to have been fully aligned with the evangelical teaching about Christ, at least giving me correct answers to my challenge and questions. Of course, We all are not naive enough to believe the Mormon have corrected themselves from any wrong teaching, at least if they really regard Jesus as an equal God, they should have given up their misleading name of the Mormon faith. The only think I was benefited from this conversation is their zeal to preach what they believe. It reminds me we have a very diligent opponent working harder than most of the nominal Christians to witness for Christ.

8 ) Lastly , I caught up with an old man Mr Lee李伯. Initially he declined to chat but later on expose he is a Catholic. 天主教 I got hold of this to share what are the major difference between the Catholic and evangelical Christian faith. He looked very humble and receptive not arguing any points I clarified with him.

Battle Log of Operation 513 for Sunnybank on Wednesday September 21st, 2022 from 1300 – 1600

It was a gloomy afternoon, but not bad for street outreach. Since it is the beginning of school holiday as such both Gary and Amy were not able to join us with their kids to be cared for. As usual, Johnny and Hung teamed up to serve as a team. And the team work amongst us was very prominently used by God that we support and complement for each other’s. For instance, a young boy rejected the approach of Johnny, but the Spirit still moved me to have another go. Surprisingly, he was happy to have a good chat with me. Later on, there were other instances that God used both of us to deal with a group of people with better result. Recap below is the battle log of Hung.

1) A boy from Harbin, China 哈爾濱 bluntly rejected the approach of Johnny, but surprisingly accepted my 2nd for a chat. Actually, he earnestly told me he has read the tract that his Mum got from us. I tested if he really read the tract and he was able to tell a few examples how a good person may have committed some nitty gritty approach offence at young age. But he could not elaborate further the whole meaning and purpose of the tract so it gave me an opportunity to go over the full gospel with him which he found very interesting and sensible. I gave him an English tract and hopefully, God will use it to open further his heart for the making the last step of redemptive faith.

2) Then I was moved to approach a Malaysian馬 lady by the name of Lai. 黎She recognized my accent and volunteer to speak in Cantonese with me as such I immediately recognized also she is from KL. She also wasted no time to declare she is a Christian and passed my diagnostic test for assurance of salvation 清楚. We were thankful for this divine encounter and happily took a selfie.

3) Then I approached William from Quanzhou of Mainland China.中國人廣東 He was quite opened to chat and willingly took a tract when the bus came a bit too quick.

4) Next I was moved to catch up with another young man Wu from Wuxi , Jiang So. I was thrill to share about our early year tourist experience to Wuxi when China was not yet opened for tourism. 無錫聊天單張. My visit to his home town served an ice breaker to get us close for further chat on the gospel. Yet it was a pity the bus arrived so he took a tract to read. Pray that God will still use this as a seed sowing tool to prepare him for next divine encounter.

5) A group of youngsters with Aborigine blood messed around at the bus stop while I was still chatting with Wu, but Johnny daringly approached them to share the gospel and handed out tracts. They however were youngster too used to remain in an unsettled condition, moving around and talking nonsense to each other. I thus immediately joined hand with Johnny to take up a few of them that had already wander off from Johnny. I picked up a small boy with a thin statute, but he actually was a State trained boxer. I jokingly asked him if he is a MMA fighter as he kept plunging fist to the electrical lamp post. He corrected me that he is with the UBC league and have regular boxing tournament. I made use of this line to share with him that even you earn your way to become a state elite sportsman, but you cannot earn your way to heaven. Of course, my sharing cannot last long and he was readily disturbed to start another conversation with one of his peers. Anyhow, many of them had got the tracts and heard about the nutshell of the gospel and all we can do is to ask God for His follow up.

6) Then I approached two girls from Hong Kong as I overheard, they were speaking in Cantonese. Full Gospel was shared but no time for interaction so just also left them with tracts to read. 港女x2, 拿單張

7) Then I was approached by two Mormon preacher whom they called themself Elder Xia from California and Elder Phelan from Arizona. I wasted no time to challenge and ask them what they do they see of Jesus if he was just a good man as depicted by the name of Mormon as "Jesus Christ the Latter Day Saint" They fishily said Jesus is God, and not even a lesser God. Though they refused to use the term of Trinity, but upon my query, they agreed Jesus is not a lesser God but of equal power, glory and substance with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. At a point Johnny joined in to hold debate with them that they cannot answer. But on the other hands, they seemed to have been fully aligned with the evangelical teaching about Christ, at least giving me correct answers to my challenge and questions. Of course, We all are not naive enough to believe the Mormon have corrected themselves from any wrong teaching, at least if they really regard Jesus as an equal God, they should have given up their misleading name of the Mormon faith. The only think I was benefited from this conversation is their zeal to preach what they believe. It reminds me we have a very diligent opponent working harder than most of the nominal Christians to witness for Christ.

8 ) Lastly , I caught up with an old man Mr Lee李伯. Initially he declined to chat but later on expose he is a Catholic. 天主教 I got hold of this to share what are the major difference between the Catholic and evangelical Christian faith. He looked very humble and receptive not arguing any points I clarified with him.
