After a day of rest, our team arrived back to a sunny and somewhat drier Emu Plains. It was a good day to come back to after a day off, with so many different ministries happening throughout the day.
A couple of the team started with a morning filled with jumping and jiving with some local mothers and their children. It was encouraging to see a ministry that so many non-believing women were going to and see the importance it has in their lives.
After some team time, a good feed and running from some hungry caterpillars. We headed out for another day of doorknocking to invite the community back to church (this time we ditched the umbrellas for hats and sunscreen). Again, we returned with many stories of conversations, that lead to opportunities of team members sharing their stories, and even being able to pray with the people they met. While the team was out, one person even had an opportunity to go doorknocking virtually, when they saw a post on a local mother’s Facebook group asking for advice on a church to attend to start a relationship with God. Pray that this opportunity will bear fruit and this woman along with the many reached, will come to church this Sunday.
The evening quickly came and the women of EPAC and their friends gathered together for a choc and chat night where Tiff shared a powerful and vulnerable story. It was great to see the church hall buzzing with women chatting all night and getting the chance to reflect on what Tiff shared. One of our team members Cait sat at a table where 3 friends came and joined the night.
“I was so encouraged to see the women of EPAC inviting their friends, and to be at a table where the split of church and non-church attendees was half. I had two great chats with the two friends sitting on either side of me. Both were keen to talk a little bit about their background with faith and continue to be asked about coming to church. It was such a joy to partner with the women who brought these friends.”
Please be praying for the women that were reached and for continued conversations and reflections about what they heard at choc and chat that may bring them to church to meet Jesus personally.
