So on Monday we met at Lime Park at 9:00 am to have our devotional, prayer time and time of sharing. We started our singing devotional and here comes a small school of 3-5 year olds. They started singing spiritual songs and it was so amazing to see the innocence of those children loudly singing songs to God. We all smiled and watched. Once they finished, it was obvious that we were invading THEIR normal territory so we walked to the Botannical Gardens on what I think was the University Campus. We get in the Gazebo and their are several people there already and all leave but one young man who ended up staying the entire time doing his school work. We all shared our stories of how we got there and it was just amazing to hear how God worked through so many obstacles to get us all there. It became obvious to all of us that God hand picked us to be there and it was an incredible bonding time. Paul named us Radical Missionaries. At the end, we shared with the young man; we each prayed and then went out two by two...some three by three (smile) to share our faiths with the plan to return to the park at 4:30 PM to study with anybody that committed.
I partnered wtih Rasean and then we followed another group of three just to be safe. It was an incredible time of opening our mouths with everyone that was in our paths. We met back at the park at 4:30 PM and while nobody came, we prayed together at 5:30 pm for all the people that we were able to plant seeds with. When we got back to the hotel, one of the man that we shared with in our group showed up at the hotel to talk. One of the brothers ended up sharing with him and studying a few scriptures with him. God is AMAZING! It definitely reminded me of Acts 17:24 -From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole Earth and he marked out their appointed times in History and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him,though he is not far from any of us.
God's love is inspiring and motivating!
