We ran to Termini, the main train station in Rome, to meet up the other 29 teams out all day seeing the sights of Italy’s capital and sharing Christ to make sure we caught the 9:07 back to our base, for the final day of our Transform training week — readying 300 to move out in mission that weekend around the Mediterranean.
We found hundreds watching our African brothers and sisters sing and dance. Then “Amazing Grace” broke out. Smiling, taking pictures and videoing — people were loving it.
All day I had carried a gospel illustration in my back pack looking for an opportunity to preach Christ in the “Eternal City” and now the opportunity found me as I stood in their midst, showing people how they also could begin a friendship with God. Grabbing tracts, gospels and CD’s — the people seemed eager to know.
The next morning I heard that our 9:07 had been pushed back to 9:27. I guess God had wanted people to catch more than the train that night.
And for our teams! To catch a glimpse of how he to about to use them from one end of the Mediterranean in Portugal to the other end in Lebanon.
