Witness

After attending a 4 week church program on fundamentals of the faith, today was the day the rubber met the road. In pairs, we were to go out and tell the good news to a certain location around Nairobi CBD, and report back in 3 hours. I was paired with a young lady and dispatched to university hostels. We picked a particular hostel, went to the top floor and began knocking doors. Outcome?
  • Most guys actually will listen to the gospel message outlined in a simple, non-offensive and straight forward manner. The four spiritual laws work!
  • The decision is the tough part for most but in our case, 2 guys actually said the sinner's prayer. Others however retained the booklet to make the choice by themselves on their own time.
  • Others simply weren't interested. At least no one was rude or unruly. But some just played us, asking that we come back after 10 minutes, when they were nowhere to be seen.
  • For those who were already believers, it was good to hear about their walk and to pray for any need.

Some highlights from the rest of the pairs:

  • One team came across a guy in Uhuru Park. He had been brought to Nairobi from Kitale for a job a few days before but was abandoned. So he slept on a bench, then the next day was mugged. He figured all this was God's retribution for not believing. The team took him to OTC and paid fare for him to go home.
  • One pastor came across a guy who said that God had told him that a pastor would come to see him that day about salvation.
  • Others got a lot of information about people's view about God, Christianity, our church etc. Guess people do know a lot. And people do not know quite a lot either. And we do not know quite a lot about people either.

Some thoughts:

  • Truly the harvest is great but the labourers are few.
  • How will they hear unless someone is sent?
  • Sharing the gospel should be as easy as telling someone about something you love e.g. Man Utd, fiancee, M-Pesa etc.
  • Love is the greatest thing one can share. So many are in need of love expressed simply by concern.

Blessings.

Very encouraging. Last year we had sessions too, after watching 'way of the master'. Very good for first timers.

We really often have misconception about what Holy Bible teaches us. Even some of believers think that Bible is something mythical and surreal that could be used only in church and not in real life. I was surprised by the article here https://tuko.co.ke/166704-man-must-taught-love-wife-lessons-bible.html in which some teaching of Bible about relationships and marriege are viewed. You could find some interesting information for you too, I guess.
