Another busy day!

The weather was dry but getting really cold.  ( winter’s  getting Nearer !)   lots of people were around, many  of them with dogs. Please pray about the following contacts made.

  1. A young lad (whose  parents have  a stall further down) came and he seemed to know all the things in the guessing box but not all the answers. 
  2. A pastor, originally from the usa , came with his daughter.  he Seemed to have  a  thriving  church  in Edinburgh and encouraged us
  3. We also made contact with a  blind man and his wife  Who had returned to live in Keswick. They took some  literature.
  4. A man called  john  from  wrexham also  took  a Tract
  5. A nice lady from  bowness on windermere who  attended the Lakes  christian  fellowship in  ulverston talked with us for Some time  
  6. Two young  sisters from cockermouth  Came initially  with their  grandmother who refused to take  a Tract but after the girls  had been on the guessing box  she seemed Happier and received  the Tract.  
  7. Conversation was  made  with  sue from glasgow and another Woman nearer home called  emily; indeed we had lots of conversations with People on the day, lots of tracts were given out and as  i said at the Start many  were with dogs of all of  different breeds  so The  tract entitled,  “ man's best friend”  was appropriate  And readily received  by the owners.
  8. Overall the person that has stuck in my mind and prayers was  a Very clever young woman from the north east  but who was studying at Glasgow university.    when she came to us she was walking With  two sticks  having had an accident with her horse and had Difficulty walking. After some time talking about god and his love  and our Need of  forgiveness from our sin,  i said, “if i give you a bible Would you read it?”  she promised she would. Then, as she was not able to Carry a bible herself,  i asked her mother who was with her if she would Take it. She refused to put it into her bag.  i asked the girl again if she Still wanted a bible which she did but still her mother refused to take it for Her  but she did take a tract.   please pray for her as she goes Back to glasgow to resume her studies that she will have contact with some other Christians and god will meet her need as only he can change lives.
