Recently a number of us decided to start an outreach project in Omagh and God blessed our endeavours with excellent weather which is unusual for N. Ireland at any time but especially in the summer. But with all joking aside we were blessed with beautiful sunny warm day.
We approached the task prayerfully and were inspired to break the ice (so to speak) with a short questionnaire.
While there were a number of walk-bys we were overall encouraged by the response to our questionnaire.
Only one lady objected to the content of one of the question which was "Do you think that God would enjoy a good laugh?"as she felt it was disrespectful highlighting that God takes sin very seriously. The question was subsequently re-phased to "Do you think that sometime God would laugh at how we represent Him?"
We presented a Christian Music Compilation, in addition to two small Christian publication to all our participants and a number of those asked if they would like us to pray for them or their friends and relatives, subsequently shared names and reasons for the prayer requests with us.
A list of Prayer requests can be viewed at Omagh Prayer Requests
Following the successful initiation of our Outreach Project we now intend Exploding the Word of the Living God in all of the small towns across N. Ireland.
If you are interested either as a group or as an individual in Christian Outreach we would welcome your input and would take this opportunity to invite Christians of all ages, cultures and denominations to join with us to reawaken N.Ireland to it's Christian roots.
