Hi everyone,
One day recently, a pastor / missionary in Canada was surfing the net and came across the www.esisite.com web site.
He contacted us and ordered my book and some other resources.  The Holy Spirit really impacted him through the book. This is an answer to prayer.
So much so in fact, we talked on the phone this morning about opening up in Canada. Russell, the pastor/missionary  has connections not only to Bible Schools and Seminaries, but also to networks of Churches.
Not only that, but he is leaving shortly on a missions …

When people in the church talk about the need to evangelise the world, they often quote Paul when he said in Ephesians ‘Be ready to give an answer for your believing.’ (1 Peter 3:15).
Yet, many have misinterpreted this verse to mean ‘just wait until someone asks you about your faith’ or ‘wait until it comes up naturally in a conversation.’
This is not what the verse is saying.  As usual, we must take into account what the rest of scripture says about evangelism.  In the respect, a key verse is Mark …

The Taylor family of Hamilton is taking seriously the challenge of helping those less fortunate than themselves. Alan, a Hamilton accountant, is recruiting a team of 15 to Cambodia with Habitat for Humanity in November accompanied by his wife Lynne and two of their sons.

When we share our testimony it is not about us but about God.  We are declaring what God has done or is doing in or through our lives.  Our testimony should  point to His love for us and be given with the purpose of His receiving all the praise and glory from our grateful hearts.
 
The Lord uses testimonies.
 
In my own life I can look back and recall the impact that people’s testimonies had in preparing the soil of my heart to receive the seed of the gospel which God caused …

Hi everyone, today I left my home at 4:30 to go an reach someone with the gospel. It was bitterly cold, the sun going down, and windy. I didn’t feel like doing this.
When I stepped out of my car, I noticed two guys in their 30′s drinking at a bar so approached them.
Hey guys, can I ask you a question?
They say nothing, only stare.
Again I ask ‘what’s the oldest book in the world?’
I felt awkward.
They didn’t know, so I told them.
It’s four thousand years old. We just made a video …

Wow! Today I was in a cafe having a coffee with a friend.
The cafe was not busy, so when the waitress came with our order, I smiled, and thanked her, and then I asked her the usual questions (the photo at right is not Abby. I just clipped this from the internet).
Can I ask you a question?
Sure she said.
What’s possibly the oldest book in the world?
Ummm…the Bible?
Yep. Do you know how old it is?
No, no idea
It’s about 4000 years old.
Wow. I didn’t know that.
(Enthusiastically).  We have just developed a video …

The following testimony is by written by a guy called Greg. The photo is of Greg and his wife. Greg is a member of the Manukau Salvation Army Church. Greg got hold of our DVD series on evangelism, taught himself from scratch, then set out to actually do evangelism. One day, he says, he had a breakthrough! This is what he wrote:
“I was called to fix a burst pipe under a house in Otara (South Auckland,NZ) on a Saturday morning at 8.30. I knocked on the front …

Hi, today I was in the post office posting off some evangelism resources. At the front of the shop there is a large, low, square shaped table, with equally low chairs all around. It is designed for customers to sit and address envelopes and wrap packages. This is a new, modern post office!
Anyway, while I was sitting and writing addresses on packages, three ladies in their late teens came and sat at the table.
Remember in the previous blog, The car, the fish, and the wheelchair, Ian Thomson was used by …

The following is a short and powerful account of evangelism in everyday life.
It came to me today via email from Ian Thomson, one of the elders at Bethlehem Community Church in Tauranga, New Zealand.
I will share with you the lessons I learned from this account at the end.
“The other day I was parked in Spring Street waiting in my car for Fay (my wife) to finish work. As I sat there I noticed in my rear view mirror a young man coming towards me on the road in his …

Today I was in the Egyptian city of Aswan, made famous as the place where the Nile is dammed to produce hydro electricity. As you know from the news, Egypt is a country in crisis, with a million people gathering yesterday in Cairo, demanding a new government.  Mubarak the dictator has gone, and the army is now running the country.
In most cities there is a heavy army presence.  Tanks and vehicles with machines guns are peppered around.
Today the army shut down my evangelism! Let me tell you what happened.
As I …

Have you ever wondered how and why some Christians just seem to be used by God and others not? Ever thought about why some people just leave their mark on the earth, and others pass through making little impact for God?
What exactly was it about their walk with God that enabled Him to work through them in a such a mighty way?
A year ago, a strong desire to find answers to these and other questions propelled me into research.  What I found was too good to keep to myself so …

On the 3rd of April, I had the most amazing flight from Auckland to Dubai. I have got to say that flying provides THE best opportunities to ‘love people’ with the gospel i.e. for evangelism.
Just think for a moment how air travel is fertile ground for evangelism.  We need to know this, because nearly everyone travels by air.
First, there are physical considerations. Passengers do a lot of waiting around in airports and they are generally bored.  They have time to listen to an eleven-minute gospel presentation.
Furthermore, at airports, people are …

Today I had quite an extra ordinary experience.  I was visiting my accountant and when I entered the reception area the lady behind the desk was not the usual person. The usual person was called Glenda, and the new person Mandy.
I had talked to Glenda before about the gospel, and I remember having a discussion with her about this. She told me that she firmly believed all roads led to the same God, and all the religions of the world were the same, but that she was a Christian.  I didn’t …
