Carlisle Show Report - June 2019

Post date: Jul 02, 2019 2:3:46 PM

We arrived at our position on the Show Field shortly after 7.30 a.m. praying that the Lord would give us a fine day and would bring to the Stand those who are seeking.

W, who lived in Birmingham and was involved with wildlife, spending time around Shows, seemed to show real interest in the Lord and the Gospel talking to John for 30 minutes and afterwards taking some leaflets and was given a Billy Graham DVD, do pray for his salvation.

S, used to attend church with his Nana, she had a Rottweiler dog which this young man was looking after, they took leaflets including “A Man’s Best Friend”.

A young lady shared with us about being a Police officer at Workington, her response to the Gospel and Telit leaflets was encouraging.

Paul spoke to an adjoining stallholders explaining the difference between religion and Christianity, they were given John’s Gospel and “God’s Story.”

A lady used to attend church in Burnley, also having a lodge near Keswick. We explained the need to the born again and gave her “Start Over Again” and “Health and Wholeness”.

L, with her son had just moved from Kendal to Carlisle, she seemed sad, we thought “Start Over Again” was appropriate.

A number of young people came to the Guessing Box including two girls with their Dad from Stockton, they left with a “Josh and Jade” leaflet and Dad with “God’s Story”.

A young man and his mother, a church warden, from Cumwinton, after talking to them, gave them “The Secret of life’s Meaning”.

We both spent some time speaking to people. Paul was encouraged to have the opportunity to talk to people he knew as to how God had changed his life. Please pray Paul’s testimony would impact their lives.

We left thanking the Lord for much seed sown and no rain!
