BALLYMENA SHOW OUTREACH
A warm day on Saturday 31st May brought many people out to the Ballymena Agricultural Show. A team of children’s workers from Ballymena FPC had arranged a special outreach ministry for the occasion. It was a blessing to be involved in the outreach at the show as in previous years.

700 specially designed children’s gospel packs were distributed. Each pack contained a themed gospel picture, Colour in book, Children’s gospel tract and Bible bookmarks. The items were placed in a plastic see-through bag. A DVD introducing the children’s meeting was also included in each pack. The DVD included a Bible lesson based on the story of the lost sheep. It was narrated by Philip McClintock (Children’s Work Leader).

A large tent was also used for the day. Many children came into the marquee and made key rings, coasters and fridge magnets. Everything produced contained a verse of Scripture. It was a tremendous day’s outreach and the feedback was very positive.

Members of the Ballymena Youth Fellowship also distributed packs they had specifically put together to evangelise teenagers. All the gospel material distributed on the day was very well received.

I would like to say thank you to everyone who helped out – there was a lot of work and time spent in making up the packs and distributing them. A special word of thanks to brother Stephen Hogg who produced the DVD and the materials. Click here for more photos.

Please pray that the Lord will bless the seed that has been sown.

“In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.” Ecclesiastes 11:6

ANGEL IN SPAIN - NEWS UPDATE
For several months I’ve been trying to get a permit to set up a book table at the market on Saturdays in the next large town to us. The town hall hasn’t been answering to my reply and they seem to be ignoring my petition. Though Spain is a non-confessional country, we still can see some opposition for other religions apart from the Roman Catholic Church to do outreach and street evangelism. I won’t be giving up until I get an answer, and I’m going to insist as much as I can.

Soon (month of July) a Presbyterian missionary from the United States will be moving to Toledo, and he’ll join us to do some evangelism both in Alcorcon and Toledo, so we will be reaching two large cities with the gospel through evangelism.

In two weeks time, we’ll have a special meeting in our church for the old Sunday School students that used to come to church some 20-30 years ago, but they left after growing up. We have sent out about 20-25 invitations. Rev John Hanna will bring a short gospel message, and I’ll be giving my personal testimony of salvation. This will be a great opportunity to reach those who used to hear God’s Word, but who now walk far from Him.

DUBLIN OUTREACH - COLIN MAXWELL
Just back from three good days evangelism in Dublin city centre. The weather was kind and I was able to preach a few times in the open air. I usually stand at the corner of Henry Street and O'Connell Street at the historic GPO building. Christ was preached. All the Dublin based evangelists are commenting on how slowly tracts seem to going out and it was no different with me. However, quite a few were taken and only a couple were thrown away. I had the opportunity to talk to a Muslim who listened to the open air. Unfortunately our conversation was hijacked by an excitable and aggressive (i.e. towards the Muslim) propserity preacher from Ghana who simply barged in and took over. The Devil really does everything to disrupt the gospel from going out.

I still have some deputation meetings this side of the summer. It's not often they run into June, but these are the dates and venues:

Tandragee FPC on 10th June
Comber FPC on 17th June
Cookstown FPC on 24th June

As ever, we appreciate your prayers and support.
