Because the comission from Jesus doesn't end until we die, the team had some spare time on their way back to Australia, at the stop-over in Singapore. This meant, it was time to find some people to tell about Jesus!

You can hear Ryan share about a conversation he had with a young lady that ended up saying that she wanted to trust in Christ. But he goes onto encourage you, in how you can use your time for God's Kingdom!

You can also hear Matt share about a Polish couple who heard the Gospel. Originally the man was proclaiming to be agnostic and the woman too good for a saviour but by they end they were both greatly impacted by the Gospel, understood it and said they would have to seriously think about it.

Who might you have an opportunity to speak of Christ to this day?

In this outreach report, from the final day in Myanmar you can hear Glen share a testimony about a man and his response to the Gospel.

This man knew little about Christianity and was very interested to know what God had said and how he could be made right before God. He also struggled with the idea of it being a free gift and was unsure how to trust God.

Thankfully through the conversation and the work of the local translator this man came to understand much of Christianity but was also reminded that the Gospel message is very simple. He left with some resources and a contact number for a local pastor.

Please be praying for this man, that God would work in his heart and use this lengthy and valuable conversation to bring about his salvation!

Also be encouraged by John, that God isn't just using the Gospel to save people in Myanmar but you can glorify God and be apart of His work of salvation by sharing the Gospel in the place you call home!

From the Day 10 recap you can hear Andrew and Elaura sharing about wonderful Gospel conversations they had in Myanmar. What made these two conversations different from many others, is that they were not with Buddhists.

Elaura had the chance to speak with an Atheist and his friends and one young man responded very positively to the Gospel message and simple apologetics given.

Andrew on the other hand spoke with a Muslim, who understood the issues with the message of Islam and came to understand the Gospel, to the point where he wanted to know more and was asking questions of his own.

Praise God for such a wonderful opportunity. Praise God that He uses feeble witnesses to share His glory with the people of this world. Praise God that He alone is the one that changes hearts and we are simply called to be faithful!

Praise God for such a wonderful day of outreach in Myanmar!

n this video you can hear Glen explaining what the plan was for the day where the team was able to take it a little easier. What is so beautiful about this, is that because the team was so much in the habit of evangelism, it wasn't a chore or a task to do some outreach but a priviledge. 

The team chose to spend some time talking to people because it had become the natural thing to do. 

There is nothing stopping this from being you. If sharing the Gospel was a regular event in your life, it would never feel like a task, or a rare occasion of surprising faithfulness. Rather, it would be one of joy in normality.

You can also hear Ryan sharing an analogy he used, to help explain to a local University student, why our future adherence to the law will never be able to fix our failure to keep it in the past and therefore how Christ can be the only solution.

Please keep the team in prayer as they seek to head out again this day to declare the Gospel to the people in Myanmar for the second last day of this outreach.

As the end of the outreach is nearing the team are slowly learning new analogies and honing different skills.

From this video you can hear Ann sharing how in a single day she learnt how to use the flip chart and then was able to have five conversations using it.

You can even hear how one of the conversations went.

Next you can hear Bekky sharing about the parachute analogy and it has been helpful in explaining that we are saved by reliance upon Christ alone.

May this video encourage you in how you can use the flip chart or the parachute analogy to explain to people around you what God has done to save sinners.

As the team gets back into full days of outreach you can hear encouragements from Trinity, Hung and Glen about how their days went.

Hear Trinity share about a conversation she had with an ex-Catholic, considering JWism, at the restaurant where the team had dinner. Praise God for his providence and timing, allowing the conversation to take place before this lady was sucked into the lies of JWism.

Hear Hung share about the wonderful experience of participating in the gathering of the saints almost 8000km from his home. Also hear his encouragement to others to consider taking this journey with the team on a future trip.

Hear Glen share about the wonderful day of outreach had, including some exciting conversations with locals who knew English and hear how you can be praying for the team over the coming days.

On Friday the team split up again and head out to four different locations and as a result many conversations were had and any tracts were handed out!

Hear Andrew share about a wonderful providential moment when a man who had been asking God to teach him more for the past two years and ended up hearing the Gospel.

Hear John share about a man who was waiting for a taxi and heard the Gospel from the team.

Hear Harry share about the day they had at the university and how it turned out!

Please keep the team in prayer as they have another full days evangelism tomorrow.

As the first full day out on the streets the team were prepared for a long day of outreach, including conversations and tract distribution. God choose to bless the team with the encouragement of three people responding positively when asked if they wanted to trust in Christ.

Hear Glen share about the conversation he had with a bike delivery guy, who despite the fact that his friend wasn't that interested was willing to even declare that he would trust in Jesus even if his friends and family would forsake him.

Hear Trinity share about a conversation she had with a man who attended a Catholic church because he had no where else to hear or read the Bible and how he responded to the Gospel.

Hear Harry share about a conversation he had with a man who had some english ability but also heard and came to understand the Gospel!

Please be praying for these three, as well as bringing the team before God in prayer and also asking that God would continue to use the team through the rest of the week.
