Another beautiful day, the Lord has been very kind to us. It was rather cold though and there were very few tourists about.
You can see how quiet Pickering now is from the picture.
Although the next picture might suggest we are left to read our own literature, it was not the case at all.
We both had meaningful conversations with unbelievers and were encouraged by a couple of local Christians.
Nick spoke at length with a man from the parish church who was actively involved in fund raising and good works but had no knowledge of Christ as Saviour.
I spoke with a couple who introduced themselves as a Jew and a Buddhist. He promptly said he was an athiest and that since he didn’t believe in God would not enter on any discussion regarding him. I pray God will reveal Himself and puncture their delusions.
This may well be our last Friday out until the Spring, but only the Lord knows what kind of weather we experience between now and then. We may just get out again!
A fine autumn day allowed us out into the town centre again to share the Gospel with this unbelieving world. The town is quieter now, but there are still people to talk with.
Almost immediately a lady stopped to speak about her sin and to hear of the all sufficient Saviour God who delivers from guilt and condemnation.
Vanessa and Nick sharing the goodnews.
Talking with a pair of skeptics, who heard the Good news and went away with much to read.

Finally, just to prove I was there I posed for this shot.

I had a good day, speaking at length to an elderly man who had no hope but left with some. A lady I’d met before but now we spoke of the things of Christ. Then there were the three girls who didn’t know what the Gospel was, they do now. O that the Father would be pleased to bring life to the dead in our generation.
12 noon and with lots of people hanging about we had a rare opportunity to encourage hymn singing and to hear the gospel preached.
Pickering becomes 1943 and people from all over the country flood in. Here are a few:
John Woolin talking to visitors about the film
We showed the Billy Graham organisation film of the life of ‘Frank Zamperini to 145 people in groups of a bout 20 at a time, in the public library.
Everyone had tea or coffee, with biscuits, and free.
Two tea and coffee makers.
A Fine dry October day, and opportunity to share Christ with a needy people. Lots of good conversation.
Julie had managed to live beyond 18 in ignorance of the gospel. Andrew and his family listened well. Then there was Mamoud!
Another fine day to share the Goodnews that Christ died for sinners.
Plenty of opportunity to speak of God great love as shown in Jesus Christ.
