Backpackers, McDonalds and Germany

Leave a Comment


One can never know where a disciple might be found or where in the world an encounter might lead. As was the case Andrew and Mindy Pyman from the West Sydney hub discovered. While prayer walking from town to town around the edge of NSW in October 2013, they were privileged to baptise John*, a German backpacker who had recently starting attending a church in Longreach, Western QLD. The friendship with John continued and he joined Andrew and Mindy prayer walking in Western Sydney. One time, John was sharing his testimony with a group of teenage boys at a local McDonalds. He noticed that while he was speaking Nathan*, a McDonalds worker, was listening in. John offered to pray for him and Nathan said that he would appreciate it as he had been having a hard day. John and Andrew met up with Nathan after his shift, shared stories and prayed. Nathan shared that he was a Catholic and wanted to follow Jesus. Nathan now regularly joins Andrew praying walking the streets of Mt Druitt, sharing the gospel with those he meets. John has now flown back to Germany however is still in contact with Andrew & Mindy who hope to travel to Germany in the near future to continue the prayer walking friendship in his town. Sometimes it is simply about stopping to see who is listening and who might be hungry.
