Evangelism in Edinburgh

31/07/2012 14:54

It was a lovely day to get down into the city.  We've had very few warm days like this.  Believe it or not, our temperature currently is 63 degrees. Until now most of our days have been in the 50's.  We've had more sunshine in the past week than we've had in the previous month and a half. We are loving the change in weather. (May it continue....amen and amen.)

The Lord directed me today.  I was going to get off the bus in a different place than where I did. However, I felt like He wanted me to get out at another stop.  30 seconds after getting off, I was witnessing to Matt.  He is an atheist.  (Most of my time today was spent with atheists.) We talked for about 20 minutes and then he had to head to work.

Ewan is working on a law degree. He said that he had started to read the Bible but stopped. He had started at the beginning. I encouraged him to start again in the Gospels.  I was able to share the Gospel with him.

Emma was the most interesting opportunity. She is an atheist who is working on a master's degree in "Biblical (something...I can't remember exactly what.)" She had just finished a paper on Revelation.  Unfortunately after 15 minutes she had to get back to work. Please pray that she will visit our church and that God would bring her to faith in Him. She had a sincere question that I hope was partially answered before her departure.

Although it was a beautiful day and I enjoy getting out, it can be disheartening to see the spiritual darkness.  Please pray for God's power to awaken men's hearts.
