Brothers and sisters,
Beginning this Saturday (the 13th) I will be picking up the ministry that began last summer at the Fredericton Farmer's Market. This will be started and carried on every Saturday at 11:00am until the end of August. What I would love to see is the local family of Christ come out and spend the vast majority of the day in evangelism, prayer and fellowship. I know this sounds idealistic, because at this time I cannot even see the body of Christ here coming together and doing something like that (how very sad)... but as William Carey has said: "Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God." I want to see Christians come together in one mind and accomplish something in this city.
If you have a desire to see lost souls won for Christ, to strengthen your witnessing skills, to build up courage and boldness in sharing your faith, to spend time in prayer for the city and to be in fellowship with other believers, then please come and help! The Lord can use whatever you offer to Him, and even the presence of supporting believers can turn the tide of the day. Only let this be your agenda: to win souls for Jesus.
Saturday's, at 11:00am, we will meet in the parking lot behind the Playhouse theatre. From there, Lord willing, we shall proceed mission work at the market using preaching, one-on-one witnessing, tracts, paintboards, singing... whatever the Lord may use. Following this we can have lunch together and fellowship one with another, and perhaps afterwards carry on the mission in downtown Fredericton. And if we may go even further... if the Lord wills we could even hit the bars in the evening, spreading the gospel light against the dark deeds of the night. Though this seems impossible to pull off, I will trust the Lord to get the job done. Whatever befalls, receive honor Lord Jesus!
"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 5:14-16)
