Special Event at the Royal Holloway University

July 2014 (2)

I was preaching earlier in the week at a special event held for students, friends and family at the Royal Holloway University.

Rebecca Skloot - FYE Book of the Year
The question / debate time that was planned for the beginning of the lecture actually started off with my 30 minute testimony and the Gospel instead. There were no questions at the end, because the students all sat as quiet as mice when I finished my presentation. As I finished my talk, a young student (who is a local boxing star) burst into tears that got everyone crying. To be honest, I found it hard to hold back the tears myself. I closed in prayer, and I can’t tell you how many responded. But, there was only 20 or 30 students that did not leave their chairs. The rest came to the front of the lecture hall when I invited them. We had about 400 students in total. It was just amazing. God really moved powerfully today.

The Christian Union that organised this special event have never seen so many respond, and so they had only prepared 50 follow up packs. We had to think quick on our feet and make sure we took everyone contact details. The team will have a busy time following up each person. We hope to invite all of those that made a response to attend an Alpha Course in the Autumn. Please pray for these souls! Praise God!

Avoiding Faulty Judgments

What better way to tell people to mind their own business than to quote Jesus? People who seldom read the Bible are quick to quote Matthew 7:1 when they want to silence someone whose opinion they don’t like. “Judge not, that you be not judged” seems like the perfect response. In context, however, the passageContinue Reading

Musically Challenged

(The following story is said to be written by a former elementary school music teacher called Mildred Hondorf from DeMoines, Iowa, USA.)   I’ve always supplemented my income by teaching piano lessons – something I’ve done for over 30 years. Over the years I found that children have many levels of musical ability. I’ve neverContinue Reading

…for sinners only!

I read an article that described how a woman overcame her drinking habit – however, it was only after she admitted that she had a problem. She said that the really emotional moment for her came when she brought herself to say the words, “My name is Jacquelyn, and I am an alcoholic.”   UpContinue Reading

ROMANIA MISSION – Final day!

ROMANIA MISSION – Final day!   Our mission to Romania was very fruitful indeed, and it was a real thrill to see many people give their lives to Christ at each of the meetings and events in churches and prisons. Please go on praying for this nation to somehow grasp the width and length andContinue Reading

Romania Mission Update

The team travelled several hours by car to Aleşd, which is a town in Bihor County, western Romania. It is located in the east of the county, near the border with Cluj County. It was wonderful to meet up with a Romanian family that heard Tony Anthony in Austria about 6 years ago.  The wholeContinue Reading

Matchstick Testimonies

We had a fruitful time at this evenings training session in Alba Iulia spending time learning how to share a clear and concise testimony. Everyone had the chance to strike a match and practise sharing their own testimony, cut down to the bare bones before the match goes out!!! A fun exercise helping everyone to focusContinue Reading

ROMANIA EVANGELISTIC CAMPAIGN

The team had a 5 to 6 hour drive from Alba Iulia in the central belt of Transylvania to Drăgăneşti-Olt in the south of Romania to the left bank of the Olt River.   The team was hosted by a vital evangelistic missionary organisation based in the region.  Their vision is to impact people withContinue Reading

The Lifesaving Station

On a dangerous seacoast where shipwrecks often occur there was a once a crude little life-saving station.  The building was just a hut, and there was only one boat, but the few devoted members kept a constant watch over the sea, and with no thought for themselves, they went out day or night tirelessly searchingContinue Reading

Is there any “grass on your path”?

Did you know that in one region of Africa, the first converts to Christianity were very diligent about praying? In fact, the believers each had their own special place outside the village where they went to pray in solitude. The villagers reached these “prayer rooms” by using their own private footpaths through the brush. WhenContinue Reading
