New baby

One day I got to tell a man about Jesus. His first baby boy had just been born. I said, “Congratulations, you have an important job to do as a husband and a father.” I asked him if he thought God was happy with him, and then explained the Gospel. I started by showing him…

Evangelism on the Beach

One Saturday I met a lady at the walkway by the beach when we went there to share the Gospel. I thought it was a good opportunity and I better not miss talking to her. So I drove my wheelchair up to her and asked her, “Hello, do you know the Lord?” She said, “No,…

The Christmas Gift

About 2000 years ago in Nazareth, Galilee, there lived a young girl named Mary. Mary’s parents had decided that she would marry a man called Joseph, but one day an angel appeared to her. She was terrified because she had never seen an angel before. He said to her, “Do not be afraid. You have…

My Afternoon

I have been hoping against hope for what seems like eons, but yesterday afternoon, I had an adventure. My Mum came to my room about 3.20 to tell me she was taking my sisters into town for an appointment. My immediate reaction was, “Can I go in the back of the car too please? You…

Abortion and the Gospel today

I shut my door behind me this afternoon and was heading downtown. The sun was shining brightly so I reached in my bag for my sunglasses. Instead of my sunglasses my hand found a carved figure of a 12 week old baby which a use for educating people about abortion. I thought I don’t want…

A Neighbour

Today I was wheeling out from the common room when my neighbor spotted me. He said, “Hey, I’m sorry for leaving you the other night.” We came in the main door together. I said, “It’s alright.” And he noticed I was pushing myself. I noticed that his hoodie had all sorts of blood patterns on…

Corner Door

Some of you might remember that about a year ago I was “rolling down the footpath [outside other rooms in my hostel]” at night, looking for people to tell the life-saving and life-changing Gospel of Jesus. I just did that tonight too. On that night a year ago, I wheeled past a door heard the…

Sharing Jesus Today

How do you share the Gospel today? Learn how, and go and find someone and tell them about Jesus while there is still time to be called today (do it before midnight). This morning I was driving past McDonald’s in my power wheelchair with groceries. There was a young man sitting outside on his own,…

Breakthrough

A few months ago, online, I posted a comment asking prayer for boldness to speak to Muslims and work colleagues about Jesus and following him. Praise the Lord! On this Saturday 14th April, I had my first positive Gospel conversation with a professing Muslim. I asked him if he had ever received a cartoon like…

Monday 29 Jan

It is a beautiful Summer’s day here. You can have a cold shower and get dressed in wet pajamas and sit in the gentle breeze eating watermelon until you’re full. I know because I just did it. I went to Pak’n’Save this morning on my power chair to get groceries. I thought it would also…

Day 8 COGY Trial

Yesterday I felt sick in the afternoon, so I made arrangements and went to bed. I didn’t use COGY yesterday. After a sleep I cheered up. I talked to my Catholic neighbor for an hour after he got me the hose so I could water my garden. In the morning, I got up, dressed, had…
