Training in the morning: Including excellent teaching from Steve Timmis on Philippians and then seminars
Cold Contact in the afternoon: Including questionairres, worldview surveys and videoing. We've also got a stand outside the drop-in cafe we're running for the week which has tracts/bibles etc. on it.
Cafe in the evenings: With a variety of different events and speakers throughout the week. Tonight a guy is telling the story of his trekking over Japan's 100 largest mountains in one year (a major feat they tell me) - account which includes some of his own testimony.
Things worth reporting (and giving thanks for) so far include
- Some excellent conversations being had on cold contact. One guy (a committed atheist who apparently has a christian girlfriend) sat and talked with one team member for over two hours this afternoon.
- Many people taking copies of a gospel and also many people taking tracts to read.
- Church members inviting friends to events later in the week.
- Good relationships being established quickly in a team characterised by servant-heartedness.
What a privilege to speak to people about Christ.
What a privilege to be involved in God's plan to bring the nations under the Lordship of his Son.
What a privilege to serve alongside such great brothers and sisters.
