How did the witnessing go? We were faithful in planting and watering the seed of the precious Gospel. Now it is up to the Holy Spirit to bring it to growth. As with every time that I go out to witness my faith in Christ, I am reminded again and again that it is not about me, but about God and what He has done for me; even when I did not deserve His love, He lavished me with it. The main verse that I had in mind last Tuesday was 1 Corinthians 2:2, "For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling." As my partner pointed out, our experiences that night were humbling, I would like to add that we were edified by being witness to the Holy Spirit at work and the presence of other like minded Christians from ShareYourFaith.org and those bold souls from Piper's congregation (Bethlehem Baptist Church) proclaiming God's truths perched on five-gallon buckets.
My prayer is that God will use our weaknesses and fears to His glory, and that the people we spoke with and those nearby listening in will come to realize their need of the Savior and bask in His love for eternity. Amen.

Laurance and I went witnessing out in downtown Minneapolis last Tuesday, along with Harlan, Steve, and Paul. It was a night of very unusual witnessing encounters. Eight of them were recorded and they are now up on the bottom of our audio page, so check them out and let us know what you think. Here's a particularly touching one; she almost immediately made a startling confession. Please pray that she gets justice, but more importantly, that she would repent and trust so that she herself would avoid God's eternal justice being poured out on her.
