This past week our church organized 2 evangelistic outreaches to the city of Eger.
Our friend Geof Stimack from Denver, CO has been here and did 2 presentations in 2 different locations on the topic of the claims of the Da Vinci Code.
Its not so much that we think the Da Vinci Code is a real threat to the Christian faith, but we more wanted to use this opportunity to share with people that the Bible is in fact reliable and trustworthy, and on the basis of that truth, challenge them to respond to the message of the Bible.
The presentations were well attended (about 70 the first night and another 35 the second night).
One of the greatest things was to see how the people from church really came together and helped out. It was great to see people sharing their faith with friends and family members and even complete strangers afterwards.
We had "feedback" papers that we asked people to fill out afterwards, on which they could check off if they'd like to be contacted in regard to Bible Study, personal conversations about spiritual things, or even our English Club. We got a lot of good responses, and many people showed interest in knowing more.
Please pray that God would water the seeds which were sewn through these presentations and that people would respond to the message as we follow up with them!
