Rugby World Cup ’15 – Sunday, Sept. 27

Another fruitful day of preaching Christ at Wembley Stadium.

The team, including Willem who joined us yesterday, cast out the Gospel net to a sold out game between Ireland and Romania.

There were several encounters.  A couple with guys who were seeking to find a way to declare our great God and Savior unfair.  Of course, this is a mask for their own desire to not believe.  These conversations are amazing in that they are in the Bible.  Like the rich, young ruler who came to Jesus to justify himself men likewise come to us to seek a way to justify themselves.

The best conversation was with a young Irishman names Bill who was honest enough to admit he didn’t know what to believe but was searching.  He didn’t hide his unbelief but that we were doing a good job.  May the Lord guide Bill to Himself.

Below are some pictures.  You can see all the pictures: RWC ’15 9-27-15

    Marita and I simply cannot praise the Lord enough for our two sons, Willem and Hendrik!! Willem is currently part of the London Outreach team under the leadership of Bill!! Of course this Outreach is “not for the faint-hearted”, but the privilege of bringing the message of the Lord’s saving grace to such a crowd, is ample reward for the effort of this committed “soldiers” of our Lord! Please remember them in your prayers!! “More things are wrought by prayer, than this world can dream of”!!
