A Side Plait and a Hat! - Part 2!

You might remember my post from a few weeks ago about one of our TSM outreach teams encountering a lady in a local shop with a side plait and a hat (a word of knowledge one of our students had before they went out onto the streets).  The encounter led to an amazing opportunity to pray for this lady's sister in law in hospital.  You can read the full story here.

This week just gone another of our teams (called the 'creative team' because they literally ask God on the Thursday what He'd like them to do and then go and do it) felt God speak to them about taking a trip on a bus and as they went to be looking out for people with pushchairs.

Before they'd got to the bus they spotted a lady walking with a pushchair so the girl who'd had that specific word of knowledge was encouraged by her team to step out and take a risk (as an aside I love that Jesus sent the disciples out in pairs...outreach in team is so much more fun than outreach on your own...He knew we'd need friends to give us courage!)

The girl approached the lady and explained what they were doing and what she'd felt God had shown her and then she asked if there was anything she could pray for the lady about.  The lady's response... 'I met someone else from your course a few weeks ago when I was in Londis.  They ended up paying for my sister in law who was in hospital ill at the time'  It was the lady with the side plait and the hat!  God had picked her out a second time in the space of a month!!!!

After chatting with the lady some more her passing comment was this, 'I'd like to come and visit your church.'  God is clearly in pursuit of this woman.  Don't you just love that His love is relentless!  WOW!
