I am meeting various people! Recently, after going out street witnessing, I was blessed with 2 people I returned to church with. The followin month, we returned with another. They wanted to find out more about the truth of God. On another occasion I met a bus driver who is now baptised. I have been visitng his friends to share the word of God. Apart from my birth family, service for Jesus is the only part of my life that makes sense and has fallen into place. I owould like to do this full time. However, how can I continue and start "fulfilling the dream" without a blessing from God through someone to help me pay my fees by September? This is why I am sharing my story here. As I mentioned, God has been speaking to me in various ways about doing this. It begun when I started to have dreams about the Bible at night. It continued with opportunities to share it and then, having taken nearly every course available to me, a course in theology was the next step as I wanted to learn to handle the word of God carefully. I was granted a scholarship without even asking or applying! Praise God! My course is one for people who already have a degree, called a "Licence in Theology" and the scholarship only covers the cost of a BA (first degree) which is half the amount. My church is giving me volunteers expenses to do outreach in the community alongside my scholarship. This not ony helps with my living and travel expenses, it is a wonderful opportunity and hopefully will lead to long term, full time employment with the church, helping people to come to Christ. Since I am working full time as part of my scholarship, I have not had time to do enough paid work to support cover the fees but this is still the best work anyone can do. Prior to this, I have been working as a private tutor and as a volunteer with a church planting project. I am happy to be working in a place secularisation has taken its greatest toll: at the moment, I am a London missionary! My ministry has been keeping me busy. My methods are Bible Study, writing, singing and song-writing, drawing, painting, preaching, talking to people and trying to be a genuine friend. For some reason, people find me rather easy to confide in and relate to as they consider Christ. The contact I have with people keeps spurring me on: one is close to accepting the gospel message. Another person whom I met on the street is an alcholic. I would love for our church to provide services for him that would enable him to be free from this form of spiritual "slavery. Another was so hungry for the truth that when we visited him and gave him books, he laughed like a starving man who was suddenly receiving food and wished, regretfully, that he wished he had known these things before. God has created many divine appointments for me and the opportunity to do the degree, including the scholarship, is obviously one of them. I believe "What He calls me to, He will put me through". How? With 13 days left, I am not sure. However, maybe He will work through you. If you are impressed to contribute to my cause, I will be very grateful. Thank you for reading. May God bless you and supply your needs also.
