This past Saturday, I had the privlege of getting the day off work. I was able to go with my dad to Hunnington Beach to do some evangelism. My dad was leading the Ambassador's Academy for the past couple of days. Ambassador's Academy is an intensive training course on how to be more effective in evangelizing. It was so awesome to see ladies go up and open-air preach. One girl, Hollie, 20 years old, open-air preached for the first time. It was such an encouragement to me I almost decided to jump on the box and preach too. But fear came over me and I didn't. :(
It was also cool to meet Trish. She and I were together for most of the day. I would listen to her as she would talk to people about Christ. At the end of the day I didn't want to leave her. She would be flying back to Texas the next morning. She gave me a challenge though. She had seen that I was nervous talking to people. She said "Michelle, I want you to by next Saturday have a one-to-one conversation with someone. I want you to email me on Saturday to tell me if you did it or not." I accepted the challenge and we shook hands on it.
Since being there at Hunnington Beach for one day of the Academy I have never been the same. I feel on fire for Christ and I can't wait to tell Trish that I accomplished the challenge that she gave me. Please be praying for me that I do complete the challenge she gave me. I have a challenge for you "Who will you share the gospel this week with?"
