February I taught about some great topics in fellowship. We talked about Presuppositional Apologetics. I was asked to teach on that one again soon since the students want to master that topic. I also taught about ministering in front of abortion clinics and the students were grateful.
I taught about Islam one week. At PITT when I asked if anyone knew anything about Islam, one of my students told me that most of her family was muslim. She told me she did not want to believe that her family was going to hell. I put aside what I was going to teach and explained to her why people go to hell. I then walked her through the gospel. She told me she thought the law in the Old Testament were not relevant anymore. I explained why both are necessary for the New Testament to make any sense. It was time well spent.
When I taught about Islam at SRU, I found out that students knew little beforehand. They know more now. We had fantastic discussions about how to present the gospel to muslims. I brought along a Koran to the lesson and showed them how you can show people that it was not written by God.
We were able to witness to many people even in the cold. I am always so surprised that people will stop and talk to me when the thermometer dips to 11 degrees F, but they do. I had many wonderful conversions about the gospel this month at both Pitt and SRU. I'm still at Pitt every Wednesday and SRU every Thursday where I go witnessing and hold Bible studies.
Here you can see we needed snow suits to stay out in the cold. It was too cold to stand out there for 2 hours otherwise.
We gave out tracts and tried to get as many people as possible to talk to us about the gospel.
Many stopped to discuss the gospel with us.
I was asked to go with a pastor and a few other missionaries to California University of Pennsylvania. I was able to talk about the gospel with many students. Several Christian students thanked us for being approachable and even thanked us for giving them the gospel. I witnessed to one gentleman that thanked me for explaining the Christian message to him and being willing to talk with him.
This young man that I talked to at CALU was very interested in the conversation that we had.
I ended the month of Febuary by speaking at North Park Church's Women's Retreat. I talked about the importance of knowing the gospel message and being able to easily share it with others. I explained the need to study their Bibles and be able to open it up and share truth from it. I showed them why we are all called to share the gospel from scripture. I then talked about why when we share our faith we need to include the following parts (Law, Judgement, Grace, Repentance and Faith). I talked about writing out their testimony and making sure that it included the necessary parts so that the person listening would understand their need for Jesus dying on the cross and rising from the dead and the need for repentance and faith. The women that asked me to speak at the retreat said the following. "you were anointed--thank you for sharing and encouraging us in this passion to communicate His Truth and Love to a needy world--so great to have you!"
This month (March) we will go to the St Patrick's Day Parade. If you are interested in joining us, please contact me and let me know. God willing we will be handing out about 10,000 tracts. It's a fun and easy outreach.
God Bless You, and I thank you and God for all your support and prayers.
