The following report comes to us from team leader Damon with our team in Chula Vista, CA:
We set up on 3rd Ave, the main street in downtown Chula Vista. I had staked out this particular spot mainly because, with a nice park right behind us, I would have the option of bringing my young kids with me in the future. At first, we were rethinking whether we had chosen the right location because foot traffic seemed to be very light. But as soon as we set up our table the Holy Spirit started to send a steady stream of passersby.
We handed out lots of tracts and had some great conversations. We spoke to a young man that looked a little down as he walked by listening to something with earbuds, he then doubled back and accepted a rosary, he shared that he doesn’t go to church but wanted to learn more about Jesus, he was encouraged to visit a great men’s group at local church where we get together to read scripture a pray among other things.
Another young man came by in a motorized wheelchair, he was born with a terrible disability but was so strong and optimistic, I felt like the Holy Spirit had sent him to minister to me more than me to him. He did state that he has often asked God, why did this happen to him, he was carrying a Hindu symbol but was open to hear about other religions. He took a rosary and a leaflet on how to pray it. He told me that he had a Bible at home, and I felt led to tell him to read the book of Job. I hope that was the right suggestion. There were many more great contacts. We were also blessed to have a new team member join the group. We have already planned an outing in the same spot next week.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
Great job on your inaugural Chula Vista SPSE site
