Training at the gym, training disciples! Leave a Comment
At the gym, I was chatting with a young Hindu guy. After sharing the Gospel with him, I asked if he would like to read Scripture and pray with me. He said that he would love to, so a couple of weeks later, we met up to read Genesis 1 and pray. After we had been reading for a bit his housemate, also Hindu, walked in and asked what we were doing. His friend told him we were reading the Bible. I then asked if he would like to join us, which he eagerly agreed to. After reading and praying together, I asked if they would like to do this again. We are now locked in for meeting together each week!

Last minute gospel conversations

I met a Japanese student, Yuki and some of his friends who were in Australia for a month on an exchange at a Christian uni event recently. A few days ago when we were meeting up (for the first time following the event) I specifically prayed for an opportunity to share the gospel with him. GOD answered! Yuki brought another friend along Takumi and they shared that this was their last day at Deakin before they were going back to Japan. In talking about Australian culture the conservation led me to sharing about Christmas/Easter which they didn’t understand how it related to Jesus. This was an incredible opportunity to share the whole story of the gospel with them. It was a real challenge as they practically knew nothing about God, but God helped me keep it simple and yet in-depth. I gave the book of Mark to Yuki who was quite receptive and a simple gospel booklet to Takumi which I pray they will read as they go back to Japan. I will be keeping in touch with them via facebook and skype. Join in praying with me that they would desire to know more about Jesus would have revelation and understanding from God.
Matt Pilcher leads an awesome team at Deakin University. He and his team are hungry to see a move of Jesus amongst their fellow university students. They meet regularly to pray and then look for opportunities to share the gospel.
Households of refugees Leave a Comment
Teaching spoken English has been a tool God has used to connect us with refugee families and households of men living in share accommodation. Hearing their stories, getting alongside them in practical ways, reading/retelling/discussing stories from the bible and praying with them has been an incredible privilege. Two opportunities that have arisen since meeting with these men and families have been particularly memorable to us as a team. The first was when sadly, two men from the asylum seeker community died in a traffic accident. I attended the funeral and was overwhelmed by the number of Hindus present. When we visited the home of the men after the deaths, the other men of the household asked us to pray for them and particularly to pray in the bedroom of the man who died. The other was the opportunity to pray with a man who lost a leg from a bomb blast. He is by himself during the day as the others in the house go about their activities. My friend and I sit with him, talk,- and with his permission, pray for him in Jesus’ name. He looks at his leg and comments “If Jesus can give me a future, I will believe in Him”. We believe in Jesus being the one whom gives hope and futures and so we keep praying that Jesus will reveal himself to these households in love and power.
