The four of us went back to town again tonight, with heads held high, hoping to have some divine appointments like we had last week. But boy, we were so wrong. Tonight’s experience was nothing like what we experienced last week. AT ALL.
After dinner at Cineleisure food court, we decided to go check out new ground – the skate park behind 313@Somerset. We were expecting a group of youths (people closer to our age) whom we might find easier to start a conversation and thereafter share the gospel to. On the contrary, it was pretty hard ground. A handful of them were skating and a pretty big group was sitting at the steps. The situation was pretty intimidating because there was only four of us – 3 girls, 1 guy – and most of the youths there were guys. We didn’t leave that place immediately. We sat down for awhile to analyze the situation, then we walked along the side of the skate park to exit and go to Ngee Ann City.
When we left the skate park, we didn’t stop talking about how much potential that place holds. So we stopped by 313, just across the skate park to pray a short prayer to claim that territory for Christ Jesus. Then we continued on our walk to Ngee Ann City.
Emotion check: by this time, I was already feeling abit sian. No mood, no feels already.
Upon reaching Ngee Ann City, we settled down at the spot that we were at last week. It was already 9.30pm (I think) and I was thinking to myself “so late already and we haven’t even shared the gospel to anybody!” I was mega sian already. The only word on my mind was – FRUITLESS. All we’re doing is fruitless, useless. Nothing good will come out of what we are doing. Thank God for a discerning spirit to know that those thoughts were not from Him. I knew I had to speak and expose those thoughts before its tarts haunting me, so I did. Since it didn’t feel like there was much opportunity for the gospel to be shared, I thought we could just share how we all felt about this whole idea that we’ve started last week.
So instead of trying, we spent the night sharpening instead. 🙂 then we decided to record some moments of what we’re trying to do, gonna share it and hopefully people catch a glimpse of what we’re trying to do.
I thank God for the three of them. Thank God for the likemindedness and how we can identify with one another in the area of outreach and evangelism.
Lord, we really don’t know how this is gonna work out. But if You’re calling us to do this and be faithful to this, give us vision so that we may see this through fruition.
