My church had a special outreach last night, Saturday. We were asked to invite a friend or couple either to go out for supper or to come to our house for a meal. Then we were to take our guest(s) back to the church for dessert, a skit and a devotional message. My husband and I invited Mona, a forty-something Catholic who has two grown sons and a little boy about five yoa. We went to Perkins for supper, not too fancy, but good food. We had a nice time talking. Mona is a lovely person. She seemed to enjoy herself, and her little guy made the statement that he wanted to come back here (to the church). He liked playing with the other kids. Mona said she would come to church sometime. Hopefully she will.
I have given out Christian tracts at work for Christmas for seven or eight Christmases along with Christmas cards about the birth of Christ. I have given out a tracts a few times at Easter. I've tried to be a Christian influence at work. Mainly the thing that seems to show my Christian walk the most is that I don't "cuss." I've only gotten to give the clear plan of salvation once to a co-worker. She stated that she had already "done that." Maybe she has. I think I've seen spiritual growth in her.
I would like to be more outspoken about Christ. I would like the Lord to give me more opportunities, but then I worry that I won't take them when they come.
A while back, the mother of one of my young co-workers (late 20s) was dying with fast moving cancer. I sent her mother a card with a tract in it. Her daughter told me she didn't think her mother was up to hearing that information. Later I found out her mother was a member of Wicka (spelling?). I just wish she could have heard the Gospel before she died. I know I'm not in charge of that part.
Just some of my concerns.
