And it's really surprising actually how many people
00:03
are open to talking about faith.
00:06
My name's Christine and this is my story.
00:09
I believe that God's placed us all where we are for a reason
00:14
and I think that if I don't share my faith
00:19
with the people that I've been put in contact with
00:21
then maybe nobody else will
00:23
because maybe they don't know any other Christians.
00:27
So, at work they kind of know that I'm Christian
00:31
and often I just get into really good conversations
00:34
with people and I've been able to invite people
00:37
along to events at my church.
00:41
So, a friend of mine who I worked with
00:45
met this girl who was moving to the UK
00:47
and he connected her with me
00:50
because she didn't know anybody in the UK.
00:52
So, I invited her to church,
00:54
so she came to church the next day.
00:57
She just kept coming.
00:59
I introduced her to friends of mine there.
01:03
After she'd been here for two years
01:05
she had to go back to Japan,
01:07
and just before she left she told me
01:09
that she'd become a Christian.
01:11
God makes things happen in ways
01:14
that you don't expect.
01:16
There was one time when I was on my way
01:19
to a friend's house for dinner
01:20
and I decided to catch a cab,
01:23
and he started talking to me about where I was from,
01:26
and I told him that I was from Australia,
01:29
so he started asking if I ever get lonely here,
01:34
and that was just a great opportunity
01:35
to start talking about my church family,
01:38
and then he started asking me lots of questions
01:40
about my faith and being a Christian,
01:44
and so I was really happy to chat with him
01:46
about it and then when he dropped me off
01:48
I gave him this book
01:50
and he was really open to receiving it
01:53
so I did not see that coming at all.
01:56
I haven't always been confident in sharing my faith.
02:00
I guess in the past I'd been a bit worried
02:02
about what other people would think,
02:05
that they might think I'm bit of a weirdo
02:08
but as I've grown and I've come to know
02:11
Jesus better
02:14
and understood and just grasped his love for me
02:17
and what He's done
02:19
it's really built up a conviction in me
02:24
and just helped me be more confident.
02:27
I find great comfort in knowing
02:29
that Jesus says that He's with us.
02:33
When he gave us the great commission
02:35
He said that He'll be with us always,
02:38
and I believe that includes
02:40
when we're talking to people about Him.
