Today I Invited A Muslim To Church On Sunday

May 17, 2013

Several folk were in for food today. I got chatting to one woman and she said: “if I could have another chance at life, I would do things differently next time!” I said to her “do you go on the internet?” She said she did, so I gave her one of my cards. This one says: “Are you on the right road?”  and on the reverse quotes Jesus’ warning that most are on the broad road leading to destruction, but few are on the narrow way that leads to life. I gave the card to her; she looked at it and said: “that’s me – on the road to destruction!”  She put the card in her pocket, so hope she checks out my outreach website.   signpost to broad road and narrow road

Later, a Muslim man came in. (He had been in the other week, looking in a really bad state). He had now got into sheltered accomodation and was being supervised. He told me he had been bullied in his last place and suffered badly from being terrorised by gangs. I asked: “have you had any support from the Mosque?” . He replied: ” I’m not going back there – they’re a load of hypocrites!”. I asked if he is still a Muslim and he said he was. He then said “whatever religion you belong to, it’s all the one God anyway”. I disagreed and quoted Jesus words: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no-one comes to the Father except by Me”. I then told him about the Church next door, when the Sunday service was, and invited him to come along. Doubt if he will, but at least he is seeing practical Christianity in action by us giving him three days worth of food each time he visits us.  picture of a church

News of Outpouring of Holy Spirit in Wales

May 5, 2013

A few days ago I discovered reports of an “Outpouring” in South Wales, UK,  in a town called Cwmbran. The church has a ministry to those with addictions.  It’s happening in Victory church and evening meetings are being broadcast on Livestream. I watched a couple and from what I saw holy spirit outpouringand heard it seems like the genuine article. This is the church website with a message from the Pastor: http://www.victorychurch.co.uk/outpouring-message-from-pastor-richard   The background to the Pastor and recent events is here: http://daibach-welldigger.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/outpouring-in-cwmbran-2013.html This blogger has also added an update: http://daibach-welldigger.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/the-cwmbran-outpouring-continues.html

If you want to follow evening meetings live you can do this on Livestream: http://new.livestream.com/home and search for “the welsh outpouring”  Lots of salvations and healings are being reported. They are making every effort to keep Jesus as the focus of everything that happens and make sure that no man gets the glory for what the Lord is doing.

Woman With Mystery Pain

May 4, 2013

image of a woman  A woman came in and said she’d just left hospital. She was pregnant and had been suffering pains. They had checked her out for ectopic pregnancy, appendicitis and other things, but found nothing apparently wrong, so sent her off home.

I could see she was still in pain; she said she was, and she was rocking back and forth in her chair trying to manage it. I said “we  are Christians and we pray for people. Would you like me to pray in Jesus’ name for the pain to go ?” She said “yes, please”.

I asked if I could hold her hands and she agreed. I thanked the Lord for his healing and basically spoke to the pain and told it to go. I asked how she was. She replied that the pain had started to diminish. I shared the illustration of how, if you go the Doctor and he prescribes two weeks worth of pills, you don’t just take one and throw away the rest. She agreed that was silly, so agreed my suggestion of more prayer. We continued for another minute by which point her food parcel was ready and she had to sign for it. She said the pain was now much improved and, as she went out with her food, she said “thanks very much”.

Praying For The City

May 2, 2013

Two of us went on the streets today, praying around the city. We went to the Court Buildings, the Cathedral, the City Council Building and the prison.   scales of justice

My companion  picked up a Polish gospel tract as he came out this morning. Sure enough, we met a man walking his dog – he was Polish. His right hand was bandaged, damaged two days ago in an accident. We offered to pray for his hand, so while I did that my companion played with the guy’s dog. When I lapsed into praying in tongues, the Polish man said “I recognise that language” I said “what is it?” He replied “it’s Italian” I knew it wasn’t so I said: “no, it’s a heavenly language, not Italian”. After we prayed for him, we gave him the Polish tract and invited him to read it.

We carried on round the city, shedding a few tears as we prayed for those in power and authority over us, that justice and righteousness might prevail.
