Late Night Evangelism

I was on my way out, one night, when I met Damilola. I walked passed her at first, then I perceived I should just speak to her. And I’m glad I did😁

I asked her to give me 4 minutes of her time, which she elatedly did. I spoke to her about the love of God (John 3:16). At first, I thought she was already saved because she was completing the scriptures I was saying but when I asked her if she would like to give her life to Christ, she said “Yes”. 

I was shocked. And happy. 

Side note: One of the rules of evangelism is to never assume anyone’s salvation. Approach everyone as a prospective child of God. 

I led her to Christ and then asked if she would like to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. She said she had heard a lot about it and she would really like to. But not now(because it was late). I got her number and we scheduled a date for her infilling. 

On Wednesday night, when I was coming back from church and I saw a group of ladies. 

Side note: Preaching to groups is something I like to avoid because it takes a whole other level of boldness. I like one or one preaching, I can just communicate better that way. But tonight was different. 

I was feeling fire in my bones😅🔥and I thought to myself, “I’m just going to do it”. I walked up to them and sat with them. I introduced myself and asked them a few questions about themselves. Their names were Bisola, Temitope, Oreoluwa and Feyi. 

When I started my message, they were playing around and joking with each other, not really listening to me. In my mind I was like, “Ki ni mo ko ra mi si😂” which translates to “What have I gotten myself into?” But despite all that, I continued and they started to pay attention, especially Bisola. 

They were so many factors that were at play to make them distracted— a generator close to us blaring so loud they could hardly hear me, we were by the roadside, so they were a lot of cars and people passing by. But my people, my people, when I asked them if they wanted to give their lives to Christ, they said Yesssss.


I led them to Christ, collected their contact and invited them to church. 

Side note: Once we get them saved, we can’t leave them on the street. We need to get them established in the house of God. Will a mother abandon her new born baby in the hospital and leave the baby to fend for his/herself? No, right? Then we shouldn’t as well. 2nd Corinthians 5:17(NLT) says, “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” They need to belong to a family of faith which means establishing them in a church. 

All through this past week, I realized that the harvest is more ripe than ever. I would just perceive to speak to someone and they would give their lives to Christ. This is not because of the eloquence of my words but rather, the fact that the seed of the word of God has been sown in their heart overtime and God is just looking for someone to be His harvester. 

On a lighter note, as SisTos and I were rounding off our outreach on Friday, we decided to speak to some girls coming our way. We walked up to them and then one of them said, “How many times will I be preached to tonight, I’ve heard enough of it”. Then she stormed off. 

SisTos and I couldn’t help but laugh 😅, knowing that very soon the Preachee would soon become the Preacher, in Jesus name. 

I’ll end on this note, leaving you with our great commission, “Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news(the Gospel) to every creature [of the whole human race].” Mark 16:15(AMP)

Till I write to you next, 

Stay blessed❤️
