Fishing in Mesa....

>> Wednesday, April 1, 2009

I am not a fisherman. As a matter of fact, I only recently started liking fish. Growing up in my house my family wasn't really big on things with fins, gills and scales. And when I grew up in Northern Honshu Japan, I had some "really" bad experiences in the Japanese markets with some fish that would make the hardest atheist believe that the world is definitely under the curse of sin. Y-U-C-K! So, naturally I didn't really "dig" on fish. And I haven't really been fishing much. I have a hard time with it. I mean, I get really frustrated when they ignore my line and make me wait to catch them. "HEY FISH! IT'S a WORM! EAT IT!" I suppose it would be easier if I knew exactly where they were so I could catch as many as I could all at once!

And that is exactly what is happening the next two-weeks here in Mesa, Arizona! Jesus said He would make us "fishers" of men. And we have the most wonderful opportunity to reach out with the love of Christ to the LDS community here in Mesa. The Mormon church is putting on their annual Easter Pageant and there will literally be tens-of-thousands in attendance! We have the privilege of bringing the Gospel of God's Grace through Jesus Christ to thousands of people here at the temple in Mesa.

This year is something special! Not only are we going to go to create a healthy dialogue with the local Mormons. We are going to present the Gospel to them through discussions and our tract distribution. I have so many stories of God bringing people to himself through what we are doing out here! But, this year we will also be presenting invitations to Mormons to a public message I am giving on May 2nd at Lifequest Church- 'Is Mormonism Christian?'. At this event I will give a talk that is basically an overview of classic Mormon theology and then I will compare and contrast it to what God says in Scripture. After the message we are going to allow a question and answer period to try and get an opportunity to answer questions and open lines of communication with the Mormons in attendance.

So, lots of great stuff happening with Apologia! Keep us in your prayers! And thank you so much to all of those who have helped us prepare for this event.
