Wow what a day! I am so glad I chose to spend an extra day in Bristol. The plan was to into Bristol city centre and see what the Holy Spirit was doing. I left the house where I was staying at 11AM making for Broadmead the main shopping area.
The morning was quite tough, I tried to find a good place to hand out gospel tracts but there wasnt much interest. At Lunch time I had call from my host Will to see how I was getting along. He reminded me about The New room, John Wesley’s first church.
I had a good look round and I was allowed to bring the cross inside for safekeeping. I found the legacy of the Wesley brothers very inspiring.
That Spirit of cheekiness came upon me again and I asked If I could preach. I took my text from, “The Spirit of the sovereign Lord is upon me, he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.”
There were only about 10 people listening but at the end I made an appeal and 2 people Martin and Molly responded to the invitation to salvation
From that moment onward the Spirit was opun me big time. Everyone wanted to talk to me. I met two lovely Korean pastors Il Ho and Young Ho who bought me lunch and prayed with me.
Shortly after I met Dolly from Swanage who used to go to a congregational church there. I encouraged her to find a local church.
Then I met Ian who lives in Cork in the Republic of Ireland. His marriage had recently broken up. When he saw the cross he knew he needed to get right with Jesus. He asked me to pray and we joined together in prayer as he came back to his heavenly Father.
Later I encountered to homeless guys John and Michael. The Spirit came upon them powerfully as they both reached out to Jesus. Michael even began to speak in.tongues.
What a powerful day. Jesus is Lord.
