Witnessing in Edinburgh....
It's been a while since I've been into Edinburgh to do evangelism. It is harder this time of year as the weather is more challenging. However, it was a sunny day and God gave me some great opportunities in the couple hours I was down there.
My first opportunity was before I got on the bus. Please pray for the man I met as he has struggled with faith in God from his youth when a child (6) died. This is someone I should be able to get to know as they are local.
Just after I got off the bus I witnessed to a young medical student who is from South Korea. I spoke with him for just under ten minutes and our conversation ended as his bus arrived.
The next conversation was immediately afterwards as I handed a leaflet to a man and his son who were sitting on a window ledge as the man smoked a cigarette and drank a beer. They were from Ireland and interestingly from the village of Lucan where my good friend Les Hill is a pastor. They knew of his church. Please pray for God to awaken Padraig (father) and Kaleb (14.) I really encouraged them to go visit the church at least one time.
The last conversation was the longest and not one I would normally take on. JW's have taken over some street corners in Edinburgh with their false teaching. I spoke with a young man who as best I can tell is very sincere. He isn't ignorant and is a teacher/leader. Please pray that God would awaken His heart to His truth. I'm sure that some of the things I shared with him had never been put to him before. The verse I thought of as I rode home on the bus is the words of our Lord where He said, "Ye believe in God, believe also in me." There is much potential for God if this man's eyes would be opened. I spoke with him about 45 minutes with an open Bible. Sadly, they have no assurance of salvation and only a weak hope that God will accept them.
