A Long Walk Down The Hill and Back!

Week 5
Friday, 6 August 2010

It was the first time SMCI had been allowed to visit this predominately RC high school.  It was very exciting! Early Friday morning on Bohol, week 5 of the Evangelistic Campaign, the team arrived on the campus housing 3000 students.  As they entered, they saw most of the young people streaming down a hill in two lines--one for boys, one for girls. Inquiring, they were informed that the students were headed to Mass and that our audience was actually to be only those left behind.  All said and done, 60 remained-- Jehovah's Witnesses, Buddhists, Hindus, members of Iglesia De Cristo and other cults and perhaps some Christians-- while 2940 faded out of site below.

Reid preached the Gospel to those who remained. Then the LORD worked a miracle...

When the students returned, the team was allowed to go room to room in this RC school preaching the Gospel at least once to every student, faculty and staff member on the property! Most heard a clear Gospel message for the very first time, many readily made decisions to trust in Jesus alone to save them from sin, death and hell.  All received tracts and contact/follow-up information was made available! Some received the BE SURE booklets. 

God makes things like this happen when each of us do our part in the Gospel giving chain--- pray, go, build relationships, live righteously before man, let your yes be yes and your no be no, go, preach, disciple, follow-up, give! There is a link with your name on it! ;)

Have you deliberately placed yourself
as a link in the chain of the
Great Commission?
