25 years ago a short Greek man from Chorleywood shared the gospel with me in a church in Newcastle and I became a follower of Jesus. I was sitting on the top right hand balcony of Jesmond Parish Church.
I remember saying to my friend 'If I wanted to go to church (not that I do...) where might I go?' He suggested JPC and so I took myself along secretly without telling anyone. J. John came along a few weeks later to speak at a Sunday service and, as they say, the rest is history. I was, just like you dear reader, immediately sanctified and gave myself fully over to godly-living and life became perfect from that moment onwards......Of course it didn't- but that's another story for another day.
A few weeks ago John was doing a mission in Hammersmith and I bumped into him in a coffee shop. A few days later, he surprised me with an email saying he'd really love to come and speak at our little church plant. So he's coming on the 19th @ 10am which is all rather fun and exciting.
If you've never come across J. John you can check out the short film on the Philo Trust website. Do pray for him and for us as we reach out to our friends and neighbours and invite them to come and hear the gospel.
