The following email was received at National Office this week:
My name is Amy and I live in Swindon. Last week I was staying at the Britannia Country House Hotel, Manchester, whilst at the Youth for Christ Conference.
One day I used the pool and then used the hot tub, a man was also in the hot tub and he asked me if I was “with the conference” to which I replied with “yes” he then asked if we were all Christians to which I again answered yes. He then commented on how the world is in a mess right now and basically asked how God could allow so much suffering. I ended up having a massive conversation with him about creation, sin, Jesus’ birth/death/resurrection, other religions, revelation and the authenticity of the Bible!
At the end of the conversation he asked if he could get a Bible and I said I would find him one, so I got dressed went to my hotel room and took the Gideons Bible from the room and gave it to him!
I wanted to let you know so that you hear a good story, can pray for him and replace the Bible, hope this was ok!
You never know when you will have the opportunity to share the Word of God with someone!
