Burbank Media Center Follow-up 1-21-12

Here is a Follow-Up report from Steve who is leading the team while I'm out of town...

Mark, Sharon, Debbie, Forrest, and Steve met at CBC for prayer before heading to the mall at Burbank. Fervent prayers were offered for our absent leader Dave, his family, and for God's saving grace toward his mother who he is visiting back east. It was an unexpectedly balmy night and there were lots of passersby. Steve and Mark proclaimed the Gospel, and Mark was blessed to get lots of heckling from several people. Topics raised included: What does God think about Marijuana? What about homosexuality? How can you believe the Bible after all the terrible death and destruction that Christians have caused in the world? (This last one was a drive by from a impassioned teenager who was in too much of a hurry to wait for an answer.) Several Bibles were taken and Forest faithfully distributed many tracts. Sharon and Debbie had several one to one discussions with young men and women.

Later the Burbank Ambassadors showed up and after lengthy discussions over the PA equipment we decided to pursue the matter further with yet another office of the City of Burbank. Sharon used this opportunity to share the Gospel and Bibles with the two Ambassadors, and as Mark and Steve were leaving Sharon was still engaged in witnessing to them. It is a blessing beyond measure to be a part of such a dedicated and faithful "cloud" of witnesses who love the Lord and seek to cheerfully and humbly obey His call to share the Truth.

Next week, Lord willing, we will be back in Burbank with a fresh new look called, "GOING MOBILE"! See you there!
