Sweet Return

By Evelyn Yeung

One night on the streets in Vancouver, we were setting up to do ministry. Our dramas haven’t even started yet, but I felt God telling me to go talk to the man sitting on a bench. What are we going to talk about? I wondered. Earlier that day, I learned about different evangelism tools, but right then my mind was a total blank! Yet the nudge in my heart was so strong and convicting that I had to obey. I was afraid to go, but God insisted.

It didn’t get easier right away. I chatted a bit with Sam, and told him that there was a book I thought he might be interested in. He politely declined. I tried to still share a bit about the book, and was thrilled when he picked up interest and took it: Soul Cravings by Erwin McManus.

That was the start of a precious friendship, and we continued to talk at the same street corner every week. By God’s grace, I was able to encourage this brother who was once baptized but had drifted away from God. It was a joy to walk alongside him as he turned to God once again. We prayed for his heart to be free. He bought a Bible. I even got to watch him share his faith with his friend.

God has really opened my eyes through all this. I learned that I didn’t need an agenda to start a conversation about God. I learned to not judge whether or not a person would accept Christ. And perhaps above all, I learned that God is always at work, whether or not we can see it…and the story doesn’t end here. To Him be the glory!
