Get in the Game!

Get in the Game!

With the World Cup on — I preached a missional message yesterday in a church in Barcelona, Spain. “Imagine this soccer ball as the gospel and the soccer field as the world,” I told them. “Jesus’ Game Plan in Acts 1:8 is for us to take the gospel from one end of the field — local, where you are and take it to the other end of the field — global.” The whole church rose to say that they wanted to get in the game.

Red Flowers

Red Flowers

One night last week in Hong Kong I had a dream of red flowers climbing up a wall. I wondered what it meant. Two days later I shared with three muslims. Their hearts were open. As I walked away from the Turkish restaurant I saw these flowers.

“One Wish Baby”

“One Wish Baby”

While we were serving onboard Logos Hope in Bonaire (March 2017), Yasmin Henry & I were out for street evangelism one evening. We met a couple from India who had lived there in Bonaire for several years. They were Hindus but very friendly and willing to talk.
We asked them what their one wish would be, and they said, “A baby!” We prayed for them, then got to share the gospel. They listened intently, and when we asked if they had a Bible they answered no. When we gave them one, the wife (Ruby) took it reverently and said, “I will read this, and it will change my life!” Manish, her husband, invited us to share the gospel and pass out Bibles at his department store on Easter Sunday, which we did. Her parting words to us were, “This [appointment] was completely made by God!”
In December, after we had left the ship, we got an email from Ruby with the subject line, “Blessed with a baby boy!” She said, “Remember us? You prayed with us for a baby and gave us a Bible.”
On a Wing and a Prayer

On a Wing and a Prayer

At airport in Atlanta I asked the official if he could wave $200 fee for the second case as it is donated materials for pastors. Found out his wife recently sworn in as an American citizen. And he said their is no fee. Happily took my leaflet and said that he will read it on his break.

Just arrived in Beirut. They checked all my bags. Read my leaflets in Armenian, English and Arabic and let me take my 5000 leaflets and 2500 wristbands. Asked one of the officials his One Wish and prayed for his wife’s health. PTL.

Prayers have gone north, south, east and west

Prayers have gone north, south, east and west

During a Concert of Prayer in a church this Sunday in Mainz I saw a picture of bright blue sky. A plane flew straight north leaving a white trail. Then a second plane flew direct south also leave a white trail. Then a plane flew west and another east, both leaving white trails.

At the end of the concert I shared this picture with the group. Like the planes, I told them, our prayers have gone north, south, east and west.

The the worship team sang, “Shout to the north and the south, sing to the east and the west, Jesus is Savior and Lord, he is Lord of heaven and earth.”

They had planned to sing that song earlier, but skipped it, not knowing why!!!
