Thank you for praying for our Breakthru Adelaide: Share Jesus campaign, which took place earlier this year!
Praise God for the distribution of Scriptures to every corner of the city!
Over 2,200 sites were visited.
The Breakthru teams personally shared their faith and distributed almost 25,000 Bibles and New Testaments. Many Christians reacted with thanks, praise and real excitement for what we were doing. The impact continues to ripple through the city.
Many, many decisions for Christ were made during that week. This is the story of one such decision:
Robert was on his way to the library on the campus of the University of Adelaide, when he encountered one of our members distributing New Testaments.
Robert is from Nairobi, Kenya. A student, but he had some issues in his life. In fact he was just out of hospital and needed new accommodation. He was looking for peace, as things weren't going well.
The Gideon discussed a few of the questions from the book ‘Share Jesus without Fear’ with him.
He definitely had spiritual beliefs.
If he died that night he "wanted to be with Jesus”
He needed salvation, he needed assurance.
Then they read through the plan of salvation together, step by step.
“Yes”, he said he wanted to pray the sinner’s prayer.
Robert gave his life to Jesus.
He left smiling, holding tight onto his New Testament, his name in the front, the back page and in the book of life.
“For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13
