Ploughing The Ground - MFC

Hello Hunters!

We met up at MFC this morning for another Treasure Hunt. There was Adam, Helena, Monica (a visitor from Kings Arms in Bedford) and myself.

We had a great time of worship, got our clues and headed off to Rochester.

We found it an extremely hard day today. We found many clues, and a few people but conversations closed down as soon as we explained the concept of the treasure hunt.

I really felt as if today was one of those times where we have to persevere and keep on pressing in, as it says in Romans...

Romans 5:3-5 (New International Version)
Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

It was hard to come away from the morning with any positives, but then I remember that Helena and Adam both managed to have a couple of conversations sharing their faith. This in itself is a big positive and wouldn't have happened had we all been in bed - So praise God!

I'm yearning to see Gods power released out on our streets, but first I know I need to align myself with God and truly understand that it''s all his, none of it is mine - Everything is his! Once this penny finally drops I'm sure that breakthrough will come in increasing measure!

I'd really encourage people to listen to Simon Holley's seminar at the Together on a Mission conference - Click here for the link - It's very inspiring!

I'm all excited now - Onwards to the next hunt!
