Today we started a little later than usual but we hit the ground running! This morning we distributed invitations to the Gospel meeting at Western Paradise Bible Chapel as well as John 3:16 texts with a great gospel message on the reverse side in the neighbourhood surrounding the assembly. There were 11 of us involved and we had a lot of great conversations, making contacts for follow-up by local mission workers once the team has gone home. There were no dog attacks but a few chased and nearly caught us. Wayne saw a group of guys building a house and figured that they would be Latinos. One was from El Salvador and the others from Belize, but all spoke Spanish so he was able to share the Gospel with them using the rope trick. Please pray that people would come out to the assembly to hear the Gospel and sound Biblical preaching.
We went to the Walton’s for lunch and fellowship. We have really appreciated the support of those who have hosted the eTeam for lunch or supper.
After lunch we visited a Seniors Home where we did a lot of singing. Wayne presented the rope trick, Don gave his testimony and Jeff presented a great gospel message using the Evanga-Cube. When visiting these places there is always a number of staff present. Wayne had a great talk with two staff members; one lady who is a believer, and her male co-worker who is not a Christian but thanked Wayne for the gospel conversation. People are so responsive here. A 96 year old lady asked to speak with Wayne after the meeting and he was able to have a talk about her soul as she was unsure of her destiny. She was a very intelligent woman with all her faculties.
In the afternoon Don and Wayne made a coffee run to the local supermarket and passed out tracts all the way there and back again. Wayne also had the opportunity to talk with some Spanish-Belizean people with Guatemalan roots. There have been a lot more Spanish speaking people than we anticipated, so it has been great to have both Sean and Wayne being able to speak with them.
We went to Miss Myrna’s for supper and team devotions. Tomorrow we leave the house at 6:45am to speak at a school that is over an hour away. We appreciate your prayers for travel and message preparation as we are preaching a couple of times a day at assemblies also.
