Chula Vista Group Week 2
June 10, 2022
We set up on 3rd Ave, in what we already call, our 'regular spot.' Again traffic seemed light but once the table was ready, a nice flow of people began walking by.
We began chatting and handing out pamphlets. We spoke to a gentleman the goes to a local evangelical Church because he just wants to 'follow the Bible' he had never really thought about where the Bible comes from or which of the many denomination interpret it correctly. We gave him pamphlets on reasons to be Catholic and the Bible alone.
Another guy stopped to tell us that he left the Catholic Church because of the 'false teaching' some of his beliefs were confusing like his disagreement to the Trinity because he only believes in 'one God' I tried explaining that belief in one God is exactly what the Trinity confirms but obviously God hasn't given him ears to listen yet. We agreed to disagree for now but ended by confirming that we both love Jesus.
A group of scantily clan teenage girls walked by. We asked them if they would like to talk about Jesus they responded, "worship the Devil!" I'm sure they don't understand the gravity of what they were saying but still, as a Dad of two girls, it makes me sad to think of how lost they must be to say something like that.
A street vendor came by, he was already a Catholic, we gave him a very nice rosary on the condition that he prays a decade each day, which he agreed to.
We are already seeing the fruits of being in the same time and place, we saw a couple of familiar faces from last week. One of our evangelists was feeling guilty about a encounter with a Pastor, it ended him walking away a little angry. This week the Pastor came by again and we were able to shake his hand and start the relationship over, which felt really good.
We were also blessed to have two new evangelists join the group, Walter and Andres.
I have to give a special thanks to Todd, Joseph and Tim. They are long-time SPSE members and came to talk to a men's group that I attend, it was the push I needed to get the Chula Vista chapter up and running.
We have now committed to a weekly out in Chula Vista, the Holy is doing great things in Chula Vista!
