I had the pleasure of talking with a young man and woman who were intrigued by the “Are You A Genius?” poster.

Ministry Spotlight: NorCal Seedsowers

I am blessed to know of and to, at times, work with many solid evangelism teams across the country. But there are a few that stand out to me as the best-of-the-best. NorCal Seedsowers is one of those teams. The NorCal Seedsowers are, in my estimation an evangelistic “dream team.”

What a mighty God we serve

We began our monthly outreach table at Oakridge Mall this afternoon. For days we’d been praying that God would bring those that He was drawing to His Son so that we could share the gospel with them.

Pounding Them With The Gospel???

By Dena Galang – A young woman came to my door for me to sign her petition for a cause I am totally against.  I started telling her how wrong her cause was, but while I was attempting to show her the error of her way, I heard that still quiet voice speak to my heart, “Is this the most important thing you could be telling her right now?”  I knew what the Lord was getting at, but I kept thinking, “Just a couple more points – besides I don’t have time to share the Gospel because I’ll be late for Bible study.”  Yes, I really did tell God I didn’t have time to share His Word because I would be late to study it.   However, in my defense, I did reject the asinine decision as soon as I thought it.  I transitioned into the Gospel.  She told me her name was Rosa, and we talked for a hour and a half.  She was crying on and off throughout our conversation.  She still wanted to talk, but I had a class to teach.  She gave me a big hug, and I gave her a Gospel tract and DVD (I keep evangelistic tools in a basket by my front door to take as I leave and when solicitors come to the door).  She yelled out to my boys, “You have a wonderful mom!”  I am not adding that last part to praise myself; here is my point: I have heard that telling strangers the Gospel is “pounding them with the Gospel,” “harsh,” “in your face,” and “confrontational”.  This tattooed woman was not only a stranger, but we stood in opposition to each other politically.  The Gospel broke down walls between us; it is the “power unto salvation.” Epilogue: My 17 year old takes the city bus to school.  He told me after school, “Hey mom, you know that woman you were sharing the Gospel with this morning – Rosa – well, she was on the bus with me and she talked to me the whole way down to school.  I wanted to talk about her petition (my son is very political) but all she wanted to talk about was Christianity.  She really likes you.  She said you were really brave to share your beliefs with her.  I told her, ‘Yea, if she had the cure for cancer and you had cancer, it would be horrible if she didn’t share... read more

First Time Witnessing at the Mall

By:  Mina M. – I started mall fishing in February with Eastridge being my first mall experience. Since then, I have been able to work all the malls (and I have soooo many stories) and I liken it to swimming in the ocean on a hot day in Santa Cruz California. My first steps into the water are not comfortable. My feet are shocked from the cold waves. But as I get used to it, I can go deeper and deeper in the water. Before, I know it, I’m swimming the waves and riding the waves and diving into the waves. I’m not feeling the cold at all. My apprehension has disappeared and I am fully enjoying God’s creation. And so my fishing experience at Eastridge began as the unknown, cold waters of the million dollar bill with the million dollar question. I was thankful for my training yet prayerful that God would show up and minister. This very tall guy was flying by as I gave him a track and since he was friendly enough, I said “Come back if you have time and we can talk.”  Well about half an hour later, he was standing right in front of me. “Hey you came back.” I said very light heartedly. “Let me ask you the million dollar question. What do you think happens after a person dies?”; and we were off talking for at least 15 minutes. He said a relative of his was very religious and so I guessed God had been working on him. He had a 1 year old son with him and his birth saved him from himself. As we went thru the Good Person test. He admitted in the end he was guilty but that God would send him to heaven cause God was good. I then explained the Just Judge concept that God can’t let criminals go and be good. He got it! Then I shared the good news of Jesus. His face changed in an amazing way from the beginning of the conversation to the end. I felt the Holy Spirit. I held out my hand and said salvation is a free gift and receiving Jesus is just the beginning of his journey. I prophesied over him but I can’t remember what I said. I’d love to share everything we talked about; subjects from a higher power to the exorcist…but I can’t recall it all. I gave him a Bible and... read more
