Sorry about the delay in my response. We’ve had an extremely busy month with work and my daughter finishing year 12. I value this communication with other believers from other parts of the world. For me personally, while we don’t have many muslim’s in our area, I believe the lessons from someone who is trying to reach them are valuable for all of us in how to communicate the gospel to those around us.
My work is in a power station so that is one of my areas of mission. It is a group that probably feels that because they have a good job they have no need for God. That is my challenge. Before the course, if I had cause to share my faith I would have been too intense. I understood this wasn’t a good way to reach others so tended no to say anything if I could help it. Or to say the minimum. After the course I feel much better prepared and look forward to opportunities to discuss, not only what I believe, but what others believe as well. I hope this will encourage open dialogue.
To answer your question about ministry, I’m not in any particular ministry in my church. I meet regularly with the pastor and one other man for bible study, prayer and support. Because it’s a small church i’m also involved in various areas on roster. I’m part of a weekly bible study as well.
I always look for opportunities in our small town to establish relationships outside of my church fellowship.
I’m looking forward to reading more on this discussion forum, and in particular to read more about your own experiences in London.
