Many wonderful conversations

Prayer requests:

  • Please pray for all the people I shared the gospel with this month to think back on the conversation I had with them and repent and trust Jesus.
  • Pray for students to come out for Bible Study.
  • Pray, we get help in caring for my husband’s parents.
  • Pray for the Campus Mission Tour in Austin Texas in March. It looks like a big crowd this year. Please consider signing up.

The gentleman in the picture above heard the gospel and thanked me for talking with him. It was a quick but good conversation. He thanked me for sharing with him.

December was marked with many lovely conversations where I walked people through their need of Jesus. Then I explained what Jesus did for them on the cross and that they must repent and trust Jesus. I had several people thank me for talking to them. I asked several what they thought of the message and heard back that this is a good message.  I enjoyed sharing the gospel.

Jill goes witnessing with me a lot some months. Just this past week she went out witnessing with me three times. I am grateful for her company when she comes with me. Jill keeps the conversation going so she can cover as many topics as she can. She talked to this young man for about 30 minutes. HE claimed he used to be a Christian but is not anymore. She asked him about the gospel to see if he understood the gospel but he did not know the gospel message. To be a Christian you need to know the gospel and be trusting in it.

“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?  And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” Romans 10 14-15 (ESV)

“Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.  So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him.  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.

Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others. But what we are is known to God, and I hope it is known also to your conscience.  We are not commending ourselves to you again but giving you cause to boast about us, so that you may be able to answer those who boast about outward appearance and not about what is in the heart.  For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you.  For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died;  and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.” 2 Cor 5:8-15

If you have never read the Bible all the way through, or you do not read the Bible every day, I would like to encourage you to read a chapter a day. Plan time in your day that you are going to take the time to read just one chapter. Decide that no matter what happens you are going to read. You can read more than that if you want to but make a plan to read your Bible and pray every day. You do not want another year to go by and think I wasted last year by not learning more about God and reading the Bible.

“Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,  and like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.” 1 Peter 2:1-3 (NASB)
