I have a couple exciting announcements about the direction of City On A Hill. First, please read about the recent encounter I had with a young women named Kisha.

Lonely

Kisha was sitting by herself on a short wall outside her apartment complex. The street was quiet, the breeze was warm and you could hear the birds chirping.

Not wanting to startle her I slowly approached making sure she could see me. I introduced myself and asked if I could sit down next to her. She said, “Yes.”

It became obvious as I spoke with her that not only was Kisha alone but she was lonely. I could tell because she was happy to have the company and though reserved, she was also active in our discussion.

Plenty of Time

This was one of those opportunities where there was no need to speed through my rehearsed testimony or Bible verses. I could calmly and casually discuss the most important topic two people can discuss – life, death, grace and peace with God.

I sat there with Kisha for a good twenty minutes sharing, listening and praying. I wanted her to reach out, break down and admit her need for Jesus. Well, there was none of that, not then any way.

When I had finished praying for her, I gave her a Gospel of John tract. When she received it, she said with a sincere voice, “I will read it.”

I believed her.

Please join me in praying that Kisha does read the Gospel of John and that the Grace of God will penetrate deep within her soul and that she will be lonely no more.

Next Steps For City On A Hill

It’s already been four years since I began sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ on the streets of San Diego. And now I’m ready to share with others the blessings I’ve received from this ministry.

That’s why I’m forging ahead with two new initiatives that I hope help others begin their journey toward open air evangelistic outreach.

@EvangelismXL

I want to add value and one of the ways I believe I can do that is by sharing the things I’ve learned.

Therefore, I created the Twitter handle @EvangelismXL and corresponding hashtag #EvangelismXL. If you’re on Twitter, please follow right now.

My goal is to tweet at least one tip daily. Some will be on how to share, some what to share and some very practical in nature like the example below.

evangelistnetwork.org

I firmly believe that the best way (not the only way) to reach our world is by taking the Good News of Jesus Christ directly to the streets like Jesus, John the Baptist, the Apostle’s Peter and Paul, Charles Spurgeon, George Whitfield, John Wesley and many others.

I’ve created the website evangelistnetwork.org where people can connect with Churches and groups who are already organized and engaging their communities with the Good News.

If you’d like to add your Church outreach ministry or group to the site please contact me at ryan@cityonahillsd.org. I will add all of the important details so people in your church or from the community can join you.

Thank you for reading!
