It has been a MASSIVE day here at Northmead Anglican! Five services throughout the day, a special BBQ lunch, and an afternoon of door knocking (lucky this place has their own coffee machine which will be pumping all week long!). Here are some of the highlights:
One woman’s story – We met a lady from South Africa with a muslim background, and during a critical time in her life where she questioned existence and craved answers God met her at this place and directed her to Him. While on a 10 day trip around Australia she found a Bible at every hotel she stayed in, and after reading God’s Word every day of the trip she felt an inner calm she had never experienced before, and also a deep yearning to know God more. She got connected with the local church, found out about Jesus and all He did, and decided to become a Christian! Since then she has settled at Northmead Anglican where she continues to grow and be challenged in her faith.
5 out of 5 – We had the boys preaching at each one of the services today. And they all did a steller job! Grant, Victor, Dan, Pedro, and Dale all taught with such faithfulness and conviction. All the congregations were encouraged to keep placing their faith in Jesus, while visitors were shown who Jesus is with great clarity and grace. Here are a couple sneaky photos of some of the boys.
Four things you can pray for:
- Thank God for the message of Jesus that was able to be communicated today to over 200 people
- Pray that visitors present will respond to the message of Jesus in repentance and faith
- Pray for sustained energy and joy for the team throughout the week
- Pray that people continue to invite their friends and family to the Women’s Event, Men’s Event, Gamer’s Night, and Street Food Night.
