Challenged to be brave with evangelism

Before coming to the Shelter Hostel Ministry I found evangelism very challenging. I thought that talking about God should come naturally. Instead, I found it difficult to evangelize to friends and family, so thought there must be something wrong with me. I didn’t know how to bring up God in a conversation.

A desire to share the gospel

Danielle comes from Israel; she is Jewish and believes in Jesus. That He is the Messiah. She is not a confronting type. She talks carefully and doesn’t push her vision to others. But you can hear she has a strong faith. A trust on Jesus, her Saviour from who she wants to testify. This desire to share the Gospel brings her to Amsterdam, to the Shelter.

Don’t give up your faith, it’s too beautiful

Working in the Shelter is one of the best things I’ve done in my life. It taught me a lot about God; loving, serving and living with Him. It showed me very clearly what the difference is between a life without God and a life with Him and it taught me how to share this faith with people around me. Besides that, being in a community of Christians from all around the world and stirring each other up to follow God is great!

Dinner time at the Shelter City

You never know who’s going to join and how many people will be there. Every day it’s a surprise. Sometimes a few staff members join. Other times the dining room is packed with staff, cleaners, and guests. Many times people have shared how they have appreciated dinner in the Shelter. Being able to sit down together, enjoy the blessing of sharing a meal, hear stories, and have fun. It’s like a family. Sharing a meal together in a family can be such a powerful act of love and here I share about some of the guests touched by this.
