All Things Become New!
Stepping out of your comfort zone right into God's hand moving is one of the best steps we can take--just ask Chery Tan! ;)
This is from Cheryl, Singapore Team...
We were at a school where young men are trained to be Mariners yesterday. After one room to room evangelism, I was looking around for the next one when I saw Raymond (SMCI) waving! He said he had found another class for me to preach to.
When I stepped into the classroom, I realized it was an air-conditioned enclosed room. There were four students sitting inside waiting for class to start. As I began introducing myself, 10 more students came in, so I had 14 male students in the class. Even though I was quite fearful to close the door, I still did it as it was quite noisy outside.
As I placed my bag on the table, there was this guy in the front row wearing a cap. With a straight face he asked me, "Are you going to preach about God's word?' I was surprised and at the same time taken aback as I thought he was not going to be interested but when I said 'yes I am' he took off his cap, sat up and looked at me-- ready to listen.
I started sharing the Gospel with them and when I was about 3/4 through, I noticed the same guy taking out his handkerchief to wipe away tears and place it at his nose. When I asked for a decision, he was one of the first few to raise his hand and he made the decision that day to accept Jesus Christ as His Lord and Savior.
As I walked toward him to collect his decision slip, I couldn't help but notice the dramatic change in his countenance, he had a smile and i could see joy. I knew he had been born again. Praise the Lord!

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new.
