A wonderful thing happened as we were searching for a parking space in a very busy downtown Ottawa. by God's providence, we happened upon the likes of Mike Stockwell, Chris Sippley and Kevin Kelley of Jeremiah Cry Ministries, and their families, as they made their way back to their vehicle to leave after a time of evangelism in the downtown core. Knowing we were to be in the vicinity, as well, they had apparently been on a trek seeking us out to visit with us downtown. We chatted for a while on the sidewalk and will continue the fellowship tonight at their campsite before they leave to continue their cross country mission trip across Canada. It was good to see them.
As was our experience yesterday, a beautiful summer like day brought out great multitudes of people to hear and receive the gospel in the downtown core of Ottawa. Well, they didn't exactly come out to hear the gospel preaching as though that was in their plans to do so but they did end up hearing it, some for some of it and some who actually stopped to hear it all.
Again, hundreds of tracts ended up in the hands of passersby. Though Ottawa is filled to the brim with tourists each year, there seems to be a lot more than usual, which is a good thing.
Four of the five of us proclaimed the gospel in the open air numerous times at two busy intersections. The name of Jesus was highly exalted and glory was given to God in the clear and public proclamation of His saving gospel to many souls.
We are now about to enjoy breakfast followed by some worship and prayer together as we get ready for MO day number three. Thank you for you prayers, friends.
