A number of us headed out this morning to meet and bless our community. Here's some stories...
We met an older gentlemen on his way back from the doctors. He was really blessed by our encounter. He used to come to St Peter's many years ago and said he still had a faith. He had tears streaming down his cheeks as we were praying for him and said 'God sent you two angels to me' today and couldn't get over why we'd approached him of all people. He had some health problems and he let us pray for him and he actually gave us his number and asked us to pick him up on Sunday so we can bring him to our service. He was utterly moved by the experience, as were we!
We met someone we'd prayed for before which was nice and he was still really open. We met a fun Australian couple who we prayed for and also prayed for a chap struggling with addiction in the park who seemed to be moving towards recovery which was good.
We started talking to a man who, from the outside, seemed like he wouldn't be interested. But right from the outset was open and wanted to pray for goodness. He asked help in being a dad. He was a Muslim and asked questions because he reads the bible. It was very encouraging how hungry and receptive how he was.
