As our Wonderful News Healing Crusade is fast approach (first meeting two weeks tomorrow!) I am going out street witnessing and inviting people to the meetings. Today, I stood outside the main shopping centre in Ilford and handed out tracts and spoke to people for about 2 hours.
There was not much in the way of conversation going on – mainly because people were clearly in a hurry to get home for dinner (I understand that!) and from work (I understand that too!). I started a bit later than I intended to because when I arrived in Ilford, the heavens opened – not the glory ones but the raining ones! I had to take refuge in a bookshop until the rain stopped.
People were on the whole willing to take a leaflet. Asians in particular were remarkably polite and willing to talk. One genetleman from Sri Lanka who was a born again Christian had recently lost his job. We prayed on the street together for him to find work, and chatted for a while. He promised to come to the crusade on at least one night.
Thanks everyone who prayed for boldness for me and for open doors of communication today. Please pray for the same tomorrow when I am going to Barkingside.
