Australia Ministry Trip (Sept 26-November 10, 2017)
From September 26 to November 10, 2017, my husband, daughter and I will be on a ministry trip in Australia and New Zealand. The places we will be visiting are shown on the map above - along with the dates in which we'll be in these places (and what we'll be doing while there). Please keep this ministry trip and all of us in your prayers! Blogs will appear daily throughout this time, as I have written them and scheduled them in advance. I welcome your comments - and enjoy them! Just know I will not have Internet access for much of this time. So, I will look forward to reading your responses upon my return. Thank you for your understanding! And please keep reading to complete the "Reading the Bible in a Year" challenge and blessing! I am very grateful to Claire for her faithful blog comments (please everyone - join her in sharing each day as a discussion blesses everyone so much more!) And I am thankful that Claire has graciously agreed to add a bit more into her daily comments during my time of absence. Please direct special comments or questions which require immediate responses to her (on this blog). Blessings as you continue your journey through God's Word this year!

Thoughts and Commentary on Today's Reading:

In Proverbs, we are told that our lives are to bear "fruit" and "he that winneth souls is wise". One of the most inspiring and effective street evangelists I have ever witnessed in action is Ray Comfort. In a matter of minutes, under the unction of the Holy Spirit, Ray Comfort is able to lead people to Christ - even hard-core, intimidating, neo-nazi types! 

He uses a series of questions, which get a person to think. Always, his questions eventually lead a person to think about the Law of God - because Ray understands that God's Law is a vital catalyst in conversion.

Psalm 19:7 "The Law of the LORD (Yahweh) is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD (Yahweh) is sure, making wise the simple."

I've often listened to Ray, speaking to people on the street, and I've prayed to learn from him (because he models his approach after Christ's Own - asking the person key questions). Ray starts off this video by introducing the sad subject of Abortion, comparing it to the Holocaust. But, as vital as this topic is, the real point of Ray's questions to these people is to help them think, leading them Christ.

Today, I thought it would be blessing to grow our own ability to bear fruit and win souls for the Kingdom by watching Ray Comfort's inspiring video "180". It is just 33 minutes long. Pay special attention to not only the inspiring content, but also the effective evangelism techniques - once used by our Saviour Himself (Who would ask key questions that convicted the heart).
