Our Evangelism Team had an amazing report from their ministry on Sunday of witnessing in Hendersonville. I was amazed how areas around our church was filled with people with other religions. Our culture truly is an international melting pot, even in Tennessee! If you want to be trained for evangelism or be part of the prayer team, let me know and I will connect you with our leaders.
Here is a report that was e-mailed to me:
“We met a middle aged lady from Antioch at the fountain plaza at the Streets of Indian lake who didn’t know if she was saved or not but was depending on her good works. As we pointed out the flaws in her thinking and preached the Gospel she was very appreciative. We than went to Drakes Creek Park off of Main Street. We met a man who had come from Turkey and had renounced being Muslin but had not adopted any other religion. He listened very attentively and was moved as we preached the Gospel to him. We then found a Jew who likewise listened very attentively and was moved as we preached the Gospel to him. Next we talked with a young Japanese woman who had married an American. Her father was Buddhist and her mother Shinto. She listened to the Gospel politely and appeared to be interested. But her interest in Christianity was tarnished because she had met many Christians who thought they were superior because of their belief in Jesus. (I believe that this is largely a cultural misinterpretation.) Lastly, we met a man who was of the Bahá’í Faith. We listened politely to each other’s “world view”. He said the Bible was good and valid . . . we pointed out that Jesus had said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father except by Me.”
