Peace, grace, and love in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We rejoice in all the Lord is still opening up for us here in Brno. He has opened up so many opportunities to testify of his mercy, love, and grace. Just the other day, I had the chance to sit down with a small group of atheists to discuss the truths of the Scriptures. They are a group of people with which I have scuba dived. The Lord granted liberty to speak from Psalm 19. “The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth his handiwork”. The best evidence to use with an atheist is the evidence from creation itself. There can be no painting without a painter, no building without a builder, no creation without a Creator. Even the staunchest atheist knows that these first two could never come to pass all by themselves, they will stick stubbornly to the idea that the third, this glorious universe, came about from nothing all by itself. With a recent dive still on our minds, I described the wonders we had seen. I asked several times how these incredible creatures could possibly exist without a very intelligent Creator? One out of the four people began agreeing with me yet the other three refused to consider even the possibility. Milan began realizing the logic behind the conclusion so please pray for him to open up to the gospel. The others, Honza, Daniela, and Martin need prayer as well. First of all, to realize that everything we see came from the mind of an incredible God.
The three tracts I mentioned in my last prayer letter are being printed at this time. We praise the Lord for offerings that came in for this printing. The tracts will be distributed near the train station and in the underground tunnel beneath the station. We pray the Lord will use these new tracts to convict people of their false ideas and idolatry.
We are planning our outreach to the homeless that we have done in previous years. We collect necessary items as well as food. Every person is given a Bible along with clothing items to help them keep warm, and gospel tracts. Many homeless here are mentally ill with nowhere to go and no family to help them. Jesus went about doing good, let us follow his example while we spread the gospel.
Along with handing Bibles to interested people, we have placed a few on benches to let people pick them up. Many Czechs will not be seen receiving a Bible from us, but are willing to take it from a park bench. The other day, we placed a few Bibles out and when we returned we saw a man sitting and reading it. We quickly prayed for the Spirit to guide and show him the truth. Every opportunity, every place, every soul. Please keep us in your prayers.
