C & E People

th  The Holy Spirit opened the door to an untapped harvesting location.  These locations are churches, where “C & E People” attend church twice a year on Christmas and Easter.   Imagine that, actually witnessing at a church service!  You would think that at church there would be no need for sharing the good news of Jesus with someone or slipping a gospel tract to someone.

The Holy Spirit provided an amazing prompting, and here’s how it happened:  While attending an Easter Sunrise Service, that was held outdoors.   I got out of my car and walked to the rear of my car and grabbed a chair out of the back of the car.  And then it happened, the Holy Spirit prompted me to take along two gospel tracts;  hesitating for a second and not figuring out why the need for gospel tracts because all the people were going to be in a church service.  But knowing that this wasn’t my idea,  I reached back into my car and put two gospel tracks into my shirt pocket.

Walking to a grassy area to set my chair, I was reminded that the tracts would be for the people who would sit next to me.  No one sat close to me until after the service started but then a couple and a middle aged gentleman appeared and sat close to me on either side.  As the service came to a close there was still doubt about how to offer the gospel tracts, because it just seemed too awkward.

I stood up and then leaned over and folded my chair and as I put the strap on my shoulder there was unintentional direct eye contact with the gentleman who was on my right, he smiled and almost automatically I reached into my shirt pocket and took out one of the gospel tracts and asked him if he would accept the tract, he was smiling and said: “Yes, I would” and he reached out and took the tract and then turning from him to leave and I turned right into the woman who had been on my left and she looked right at me and again just reaching into my pocket  that second tract was pulled out and offered to her and she said: “Sure.”  She reached out for the tract and then thanked me.  The encounters were over in what seemed like a flash and I was on my way, Never looking back, I knew everything was in the hands of the Holy Spirit.
