“With this wristband I talked about Jesus to my teacher,” said this Spanish boy to whom I gave one a year ago.
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.
ONE WISH results …I asked the question and first reply was “I’m eager for a Full Turkish Translation Bible is the only language I can read“. That was his wish….. and here is it! God surprises us many times …great things happening in the Middle East.
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.
It’s been quite a week here in Hong Kong training teams. We saw a couple or more people each day make decisions for Christ as we have gone out to put One Wish into practice.
Two gals led this lady to the Lord.
This brother in Lebanon could not wait to tell me that he had led someone to the Lord — one of twenty who made a decisions one evening after receiving the One Wish training.
Giving wristbands to Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
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.
Tuesday the entire Riverboat community went to the center of Mainz to share Jesus in various ways including a flash mob Dance, dramas, worship, art, kids activities, prayer and of course conversations.
Herbert from Germany (blue jacket) came to Christ as did 4 of the 6 Italian students we met and shared with. Praise the Lord.
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!!!
