Today, we conducted a health talk in the city of Takasaki. The location is a relatively small place and about 10 people were expected to come. Before we went to the location, we prayed for a good attendance and that we might even have an opportunity to share the gospel with the people. God answered our prayer and more than doubled the attendance with 22 people showing up! Those who attended were greatly blessed, and even better, we were able to share more with many individuals who came to talk with us after the meeting.
After the meeting, a woman asked Marty Brown, Mt. Akagi President, about something he said during the lecture. Not knowing if she would be open to Christian ideas, Marty answered her question with physiological reasoning. However, a little into their conversation, the lady, who is somewhat on the new-age side of thinking, told him that she occasionally reads from the Bible. With this new knowledge, Marty found himself able to reason with her on the subject from a Biblical point of view.
