Together with a brother in Christ, we went out to discuss with people we met on the streets, at their gates or in their courtyards. We also distributed New Testaments to some of them. I chatted with a man my age who shared with us what he believed and then asked us questions. He believed, like many people in our country, that it is important that a person does not take his last breath without having light on his head. But we were able to show him the verse from John 12:8 and introduced the Lord Jesus as the Light of the world and that what we truly need is Him.
A discussion with a young family.
I had the opportunity to enter into a discussion with a young family while doing evangelism in a different town. At one point, the husband, hearing about heaven and hell, said that we have no way of knowing what is beyond this life. I told them that if we don’t read the Bible, we have no way to know. I took out a New Testament, I gave it to them. When my colleague continued and told them about God’s love, the wife wanted to know specifically where this was written and what the Bible said. I showed her how to find the verse from John 3:16 and she read this verse and the next one and showed interest in hearing the Gospel. At the end of the discussion, I also gave them the address of their local church.
A testimony outside at a bar.
Outside a bar, there were about 5 people drinking wine and talking. I went to them to give them a calendar and one of them told me to drink a glass with them too. I didn’t drink but this was an opportunity to tell them how the Lord Jesus changed my life, he helped me many years ago to escape from the bonds of drunkenness and other sins. These people were not drunk, therefore they listened to me carefully. One of them said to the others: “Listen to what this man says, it is very important what he is saying.” I also shared the Gospel briefly with them and without challenging them to an answer, one or two of them recognized their sinful way of life, that they weren’t what they who they were supposed to be.
A joy long-awaited each year!
We, Hope Church Drăgăneşti-Olt, were very happy to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ this December by singing carols and listening to messages about the Baby Jesus born in the manger of Bethlehem.
I wish you God’s blessing and protection!
