Christmas Unwrapped Report
Godalming Filling Station were thrilled to be hosts to J.John and his team for a special Christmas Carol evangelistic evening in December. The eighteenth century barn in which Godalming FS meet looked beautiful with delicately placed Christmas decorations. Mulled wine and mince pies were offered and added a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Many of our regular attendees brought guests, most of whom were non-Christians. J.John treated us to a wonderful talk, his theme being ‘Christmas Un-Wrapped’. It was a mix of great humour and inspiring insight into the ‘true’ meaning of Christmas. He was able to bring the reality of Christ into the everyday of our lives and the world today, making a significant and accessible link for all. Many responded to J.John’s call to come forward for prayer and for those who wanted to accept Christ or move closer to Him. J.John and his wife Killy both commented that they had felt that at least half who had responded had been ‘opening the door’ to Christ for the very first time. Wow! We all felt very privileged to see God move in so many lives that evening but one of our lovely team members, Louise, reported that she had received a last minute request from a lady to bring her 11 year old son, to which she consented. Later that evening, the boy had been so moved by what J.John had preached that he went forward to give his life to the Lord! What a very special and significant guest that boy proved to be!
