Keswick Market - January 2018

Post date: Feb 16, 2018 10:47:42 AM

The day began with rain!! It was good to have our new display at the back of the Stall with a Lakeland view and John 14.v.6.

A lady stopped to talk and we shared the Gospel. On asking which tract she would like, she said “I will take both “Find Your Way Around Lakeland” and “The Purpose of Life.” John discovered he knew her husband who was brought up in his village and a little while later she returned with her husband. Pray that the seed sown would be a blessing to them.

A young couple ‘R’ and ‘W’ from Sedgefield stopped twice to speak, ‘R’ was really interested and spent quite a time listening as we explained how to be saved, we were pleased they took “God’s Story” and a Billy Graham DVD – “The Value of a Soul.”

Yet again we spoke to a young couple, ‘A’ from Spain and ‘R’ from Hungary both now living in Keswick, a real joy to see them listening as we told the Way of Salvation. They took the booklet “On the Right Track” (John’s Gospel and Romans) along with “God’s Story.”

A couple were passing by pushing a pram with baby Twins, the Mother accepted “Family Matters”, the Father was nominally Catholic. Pray that this couple from Durham would find Jesus rather than religion.

Another couple passing with baby in pushchair, he was a policeman, he remembered seeing the Van at Appleby Gypsy Fair when he was on duty there,, he was quite sceptical saying he had seen so much in the forces. His wife listened well, was brought up in N. Ireland in a Presbyterian church. Pray the seed sown in this couple’s lives will lead them to Jesus.

As we came towards the end of our day of witness, the Market Manager asked us to finish early due to high winds developing.

We praise the Lord for the opportunity to give much literature away and the privilege to speak to so many in depth about the Saviour, not forgetting many Christians who visited the stall, some from Scotland and others who were staying at Bassenfell Manor from Northumberland. We value your continued prayer as we continue the work at Keswick into 2018 God willing.
