Right after the camp we began with a two day Local Outreach with more than 70 participants from China, Hong Kong and overseas. The majority were from Mainland China and it was their first time going on outreach but God used them in such a powerful way as they served the Hong Kong people. They were able to pray for people on the streets and share the Good News in places like Tuen Mun Park, Sheung Shui, Tin Shui Wai and at a Center for mentally disabled.
Every morning we had wonderful times of worship and intercession for the city and for the different activities we would be doing in the afternoon. It was amazing to hear God together and receive clear prayer impressions about places and people we would encounter in that particular afternoon. We split into several groups and visited different locations in the New Territories.
One of the groups went to Tuen Mun Park. They arrived in the park and began to walk around asking God where they should go to present their dances and witness to people who would see them. As they were walking they started to hear very loud music and saw a large crowd watching some performances. Our group felt that this was the right place to stay so we enquired to the people in charge if they would allow us to perform some dances. To our surprise, they immediately said ‘Yes!’ It was an amazing afternoon where our group presented typical dances from Colombia and some uplifting worship songs. The crowd loved it. They even wanted us to stay and present more songs! It was beautiful to see how the spiritual atmosphere changed, through the power of the Holy Spirit, as we worshiped Jesus. His presence made way for many opportunities for us to share about Jesus to the people.
Another highlight of the outreach was the wonderful opportunity to partner with local churches and to go on outreach together further strengthening our relationships and the body of Christ. We experienced a great sense of unity as we served God together. It was such a great experience for our brothers and sisters from Mainland China to be equipped, released and sent out.
