This afternoon’s door knocking experiences were many and varied…
David H and Hannah
Thought they’d knocked on the door of a drug den, which they think turned out to be a house being renovated by an (understandably) very confused tradie!
Turned up at the home of a practising Jehovah’s Witness – the very definition of irony…
Were refused at the door by a woman putting on her dressing gown and informing us that the household was asleep… as she spoke above the very obvious television noise in the background.
Tom and Brie
Met a Catholic guy: ‘If people aren’t interested in your church you can invite them to ours!’
David B and Rebecca
Saw a guy gardening out the front of his house, who made it clear that he thought religion was rubbish and gave a stack of ‘science vs religion’ type arguments, which led to some great opportunities to talk about Christianity and finally his taking of a copy of Mark’s gospel.
Peter and Lauren
According to Peter, had some conversations that lasted ‘longer than I would have given me. The word I’d use to describe the afternoon is ‘mediocre’.
Cameron and Melissa
After being refused: “We dusted our feet and took our pearls with us.”
Neil and Andrew
Had two great gospel conversations, one with an older lady and one with a young guy, who wasn’t Christian but felt he hadn’t yet found himself.
Jono and Jacquie
Welcomed a guy who’d grown up a street away and had moved to a new house in the same suburb he’d grown up in!
And, most bizarrely…
Had to access one house through a sandstone cave that led to a darkened tunnel before arriving at the house. We have it on good authority that the words ‘to live is Christ, to die is gain’ were uttered as they entered into the abyss…
