A correctly named day, as we gathered on Saturday, the rain was pouring down, and the wind was increasing, it felt mad to be there.
But what was exciting was that a number of young people had chosen to be there, chosen to make a difference in people's lives, and step out for god.
Some young people made cards and wrote messages in them and handed them out to people in the town centre, others went to an old people's home and spent soem time with them, whilst others went to a couple of charities store areas, and belssed them by helping sort out and move things around to help make their lives a bit easier.
All the young people had stories at the end of the day of hwo they had seen god at work, the things they had got involved in, and what they had learnt from the day.
Th second of these types of more will be taking place, as we see young people stepping out, making a difference in lives of people arou
So previously i have written about people making decisions to know Jesus better, and also about how Disciples were making disciples, but as i have previously said, you just don't know sometimes the impact of what you have said upon thsoe listening.
This last week, my youngest daughter informed me that a friend of hers at school had come up to her and told her that she had heard me speak at alocal group of young people at a church. This other young person informed my daughter positively of hearing what i had said, and how it had inspired them in their relaitonship with god.
Firstly, this was an encouagement for me, as i said earlier you just don't know sometimes what people think after you have shared soemthing.
Secodnly, thsi was an encouagement to my daughter, as someone else told her that they were growing in their relaitonship with god and that her dad had helped a bit, and there was a verry strong sense of enjoying that moment for my daughter.
It is exciting the oportunities that coming our way, but what is more exciting is thr fruit that is coming from those encounters, and how more and more people are going further in their relationship with god.
