SOE Fiji 2017

Kia ora team

At the moment the soe is going real well. We have 12 students at this stage. They are hungry to learn and excited about loving the Lord and serve the Lord. On our first outreach the team shared the gospel with around 42 people. 


On Sunday I went to Prison with Samu and we went to a dorm that is suppose to hold 20 people. In the dorm there was about 80 inmates in the dorm. There was only 36 beds. One side had bunks. One person on the top, one on the bottom and one sleeping underneath the bunk then one sleeping on the floor between the bunks. After I preached the gospel I saw 4 people respond to Christ. Gary was in there about a week before and saw around 10 responses. 


Today we covered how to share the gospel which went well.

Tomorrow we start door to door evangelism and later in the week we start preaching in the open air. Also every Tuesday and Thursday lunch time the students are rostered on to visit with Samu to the prison.

Update

What a year so far.  We are into February and well into ministry but it still feels like we have just started.
During January we were involved in camp ministry with Finlay Park Camp in Cambridge.  We had the opportunity to minister to over 100 kids between the ages of 8 and 14 as well as unsaved camp Mum and Dad's!

Last weekend we were a part of local missions running a Family Fun Day in the Lipscombe Cres area in Havelock North.  This gave us the opportunity to share the gospel with close to 100 locals.

I am, as I write this, having lunch at our National School of Evangelism held at Riverbend Bible Church.  We have 7 full time students in atendance and 3 part time.  Tony Collis is lecturing for the first 3 days.  It is such a privilege to be part of people's lives, inspiring them, challenging them and equipping them for evangelistic ministry.  Please pray the the students will grow and develop insuch a way that they will become more like Jesus and impact the world with the Gospel.

On the Street ... from Maria Henderson

Jeremy and I set up the Good Person Test flip chart near the Hastings clock tower one afternoon. Soon we were busy talking with four teenage girls from the Catholic school.
 They showed genuine interest in the gospel; one was teary-eyed as Jeremy explained the extremes Jesus went to, to demonstrate His love for us. Like the Bereans (Acts 17:10-11), I was pleased to see that one of the girls pulled her Bible out of her school bag, to check the verses which Jeremy quoted. None of them made a commitment to Christ at that time but for the first time in their lives they understood who Jesus really was and what they need to do to know him.

At one stage while we were showing the Good Person Test to these young ladies, a man wandered over and peered over their shoulders, to see what was going on. As soon as he realized that it was about God, his face twisted from that of a curious onlooker, to that of someone reeling as if they were about to faint. He hastened on his way down the street, calling out from half a block away, "Don't let them brainwash you!" Huh. When we share the gospel we never quiet know what response we will get but we do know people will have a response. 2 cor 2:16

When 'Yes' doesn't always mean 'Yes'

It was after two and Alex and myself were sharing the gospel with people in the Naenae shopping centre in Lower Hutt.  We struck up a conversation with a 17 year old Maroi boy who had just moved down from the Hawkes Bay, Zion, was his name.  He was so open.  He came from a church background yet a lot of his beliefs were a mixture of eastern philosophy with some basic Christian concepts.  Zion had thought he was good enough for God.  He felt that way becuase he intellectually believed in God and prayed every night.  As I shared the gospel with him it became very clear in his mind that he was mistaken in his beliefs and even in his understanding of who God is.  Zion came to a place where he admitted his sin and that he was guilty  before a Holy God.  As we talked about what needs to happen for us to not only have our sins forgiven but also become reconnected to God through being adopted into His family, Zion was chomping at the bit to receive Christ.  At this time I felt that Zion wasn't so much ready to receive Him as Lord but He was really saying, 'I'm keen to learn more'.  So I went through with him what it means to follow Jesus and how that affects our lives.  I then asked if he thought he was ready to receive Christ and he declined.  Zion was keen to start a Bible study and learn about who Christ is but he wasn't ready to start a new life in Christ.  Mike Revis is now going to be following Zion up.  Pray that he would come to a place of true repentance so he might experience true life.

Haumoana Market

Jeremy was recently involved in an outreach at the Haumoana Market.  The OAC Hawkes Bay team (which Jeremy also leads) held a stall at this large market.  The event attracts people from all over the bay as well as the country.  It was a beautiful day and many stopped to hear the gospel preached.  Andrew Moore from PN Branch and Maria from Hawkes Bay helped lead a team of volunteers in sharing the gospel.



 Throughout the day we challenged people, gave away DVD's and tracts and had the privilege of seeing one young lady give her heart to the Lord.  Please pray for us as we continue to witness at these large events, that people will be open and opportunities will continue to present themselves.
