On day two of the SMCI Evangelism Campaign I had the privilege of giving the Gospel to a class of 53 students at a National High School in Southern Leyte. I had walked with Princess, the SMCI leader of our group, as we placed the other teachers into their classrooms. When we came to my classroom there were plenty of students, but no teacher. I was concerned because I had to start my Gospel presentation without asking permission. Sure enough, just as I was getting started the teacher walked into his classroom to find a foreigner teaching his class. I quickly stopped my presentation and went to the door to introduce myself to him. With a flourish he introduced himself to me using his entire name, rolling his “r”’s and slightly bowing. His class was so surprised by the performance that they applauded him.
We got back to the presentation and he left again, only to come back with another teacher. They talked (out loud) in the back of the room for a minute and then settled down to listen. I forgot about them during the rest of the presentation and invitation, but was reminded that they had been listening when both of them walked up to me separately and handed me a decision card that they had filled out. Both professed that they had trusted Christ to save them. He added that he meant it from the bottom of his heart.
