As I learn what works for me & with my personality, I'm grateful for CSOM's opportunities to learn from others more experienced in 'activations.' On Wed, at Isaiah's Rock, Pastor Alan demonstrated it using differing methods. He began with the 'evangelistic circle' approach as we talked with a young Chinese man. Then P. Alan surprised me with his knowledge of Chinese history/culture, & he also used a picture of Jesus standing at a door knocking. The man was interested but wasn't ready to commit, as he still had questions about the Bible. Alan encouraged him to keep an open heart & suggested he begin reading in Matthew, then we prayed blessing over him. Next, with the help of a Spanish interpreter, we prayed for Alisa, a young woman grieving over her mother's death from cancer. I identified with her because my mother died of cancer when I was young. Although I could not speak her language, I was able to give Alisa a motherly hug, which needs no interpretation. Then we prayed for the interpreter, Maria, & she was healed from pain, & we prayed a blessing over, Daisy, a young pregnant woman. Daisy was visibly touched when Alan spoke a 'word' from the Lord to her. So thank you, Pastor Alan, for allowing me to tag along to watch God at work in Isaiah's Rock. These people came for help with their physical needs, & left with a tangible caress of their Father's love.
