I have continued my series on Isaiah, which has been an encouragement. I finished preaching chapter 48, and I am now taking a break in the series. At the end of last month, I started a new series on the Gospel of Luke.
A couple weeks ago, we had a great time of evangelism at the local international market. Two people with whom I shared the gospel attended our Sunday service the next day. Please pray for them. One of them is a young Iraqi man. He has continued to come, and I have had many good opportunities to share with him. Pray that the Lord would open his heart to the gospel.
We are now going to the refugee arrival center on the outskirts of Gothenburg and giving out clothes, toys, and (of course) New Testaments. Please pray for good opportunities to share the gospel and connect with people through this ministry.
Recently, I had some preaching opportunities outside the church. I was invited to preach to a group at Volvo, the Swedish car factory. It provided a good opportunity for me to explain the gospel and to teach about evangelism. I was also able to preach together with a Presbyterian minister at a one-day conference on the theme of perseverance and assurance that was hosted by a Romanian group in another city. It was very refreshing.
The work on the Reformedia/Evangeliecentrerat website carries on. Ola is currently translating and proofreading Don’t Waste Your Life by John Piper. A great answer to prayer is that we are now able to catch up with the proofreading of literature and the editing of videos because of your help given through HeartCry.
Please pray for me personally that God might give me wisdom in time management. There are so many worthy things to which I might devote my time, but I cannot do all of them. Please pray that I would be able to take hold of all the opportunities that God gives me to share the gospel with the people that we meet.
