Falmouth mission week – Final Roundup

1 comment

I’ve loved being in Falmouth this week. It’s been brilliant to see the prayer meetings growing in size each day (reversing the normal trend) as the CU have been keen to lift their friends up to God in prayer. It’s also been great to see the students inviting friends, and to see these friends coming along, often quite unexpectedly. The mission may have been much smaller than some of the others the MOET team get involved in, but the warmth of the events and the welcome the CU have given to their guests has given some lovely opportunities to talk about Jesus naturally and warmly.

My favourite events have been the free evening meals. Falmouth CU do these regularly, and they have a reputation for doing them well. On Wednesday evening the title was “how can a loving God not love everyone?” and on Thursday, “what kind of God allows suffering?” Both led to some great questions and discussion, and over the two evenings 4 people responded by ticking “count me in” on the feedback form, indicating they had made some kind of response to Jesus’ offer of forgiveness and welcome. Praise God for these responses! And pray for them as they take the next steps in following Jesus.

Last night we had our final event looking at the evidence for the resurrection. We invited people to come up with their own alternative theories to explain the evidence, and then I tried to show how the resurrection is the best explanation, and why it matters. There were only a few guests, but the contacts were significant, which seems to have been a pattern this week. One chap had been to most of the events this week after realising he needs to decide what he thinks about Jesus – he left telling the CU that he’d see them again soon.

Pray for the CU here in Falmouth as they carry on these conversations with their friends, and as they begin a regular seekers’ Bible study from next Friday evening.
