Bright and early this morning we headed to the city centre to do open air evangelism with Mickey Walker. We took the DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) from Shankill to Dublin city centre. The team had tracts and right away began handing them out at the DART station in Shankill! First we stopped at the Lighthouse and Dublin Christian Mission, where we met Joe Murphy and learned about the ministry work they do in the inner city. We then headed over to Immanuel Church Dublin where we met Mickey Walker. Mickey has been doing open air evangelism in Dublin City Centre pretty much every day for the past 30 years. One does the sketchboard while others watch, talking to people in the crowd once the message is over. We heard messages from several brothers, including Daniel, David, Billy, Johnny, and our own team members Tim and Lucien. We were there for several hours and had a few good conversations. One, Vincent, was sitting in the information booth across from the sketchboard. He is Catholic but said he would read the New Testament that was given to him. Another lady took a New Testament. She had read the Bible in the past but wasn’t reading it currently. We finished about 4 pm, and then on the way back to Glenmaris we stopped at Carroll’s for some Irish souvenirs. For supper we enjoyed a traditional Irish meal of Dublin Coddle prepared any Ron and Robin Hampton. Several members of the church joined us for a wonderful time of food and fellowship. At half 7 we attended the weekly prayer and bible study meeting at Shankill Bible Church led by Len Carolan, a local mission worker. Morgan gave his testimony and the group participated in a time of prayer together.
Several new testaments and tracts were given out in Dublin today. Please pray for the literature given out and the conversations had in Dublin city centre.
