Together with a missionary brother from HeartCry (Emanuel from Brasov), we started a conversation with an elderly man. He was very moved by what we told him. When we explained to him that we are seperated from God, due to sin, and that the Lord Jesus sacrificed himself on the cross, we saw that he was starting to cry. Brother Emanuel also spoke and at the end, when he prayed for this man that God would illuminate him so that he could understand the Gospel, I saw once again that tears started to flow. I believe that this man was moved by God and when we left him, he said something like, “This was the best thing that I was a part of today.”
Again with Brother Emanuel, we entered into a discussion with 3 youth that were in high school. When they heard that it was talk about God, one of them left to go to the bus stop, which was a little walk before us. The other literally turned his back to us. To the third one, Brother Emanuel asked: “Why did Jesus die?” That same boy responded: “For our sins.” I then asked him, “What do you do with your sins? Do you taken them with you or do you want to get rid of them?” But right at that moment, the bus came and the young man rushed, so that he could get in, resulting in us not receiving any response.
To another man, I gave an evangelistic brochure. I thought ahead of time to not give just brochures to the people that I would meet, but to say something. If that person would listen, then I would say more. This man received the brochure and I told him that God loves him, but that he needs to make amends with God. I saw that he wanted to listen and I then explained how sin puts us in an enemy state with God. I also explained that being at peace with Him, comes through faith in what Jesus did. God gave me the words to explain the Gospel to him and he listened. At the departure, he told me that he would read the brochure.
