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!!!
During a recent 48 hour trip back to the States for a citizenship interview, courtesy of Delta Frequent Flyer Miles, I had the idea to raise $500 on GoFundMe to help cover the cost of refreshments for the guests our Riverboat company invite to the Cafe onboard in order to share Jesus with them. But the hours flew by and I did not get to it, nor even tell Rachel about it, who had flown back with me to sort out urgent house keeping matters.
Rachel happened to mention about the Riverboat Cafe outreach to a friend. Eager to help with the hospitality to see people come to Christ, she called her husband, pulled out her checkbook and wrote a check for $500.
From the youngest to the oldest (can you spot the baby?), I gave each one a wristband and a leaflet. They were so excited to see this simple, friendly way to share the good news. I challenged them to each show the wristband to one friend this week and share the gospel with them.
