Serving Coffee for Jesus

Last weekend, Reesa and I did an outreach at our church (Calvary Chapel of Wien). The goal was to pass out free coffee to people in the third district of Vienna. We just wanted to serve them and be a blessing to strings attached.

We had two tables set up. One was by a strassenbahn (train) stop and another by the airport. As people walked by, we offered a hot cup of coffee. Many were skeptical and asked why. My friend Nate would tell them, “two things are free today: coffee and God’s love.” Some would just smile and take the coffee others would stay and talk. Some wouldn’t even make eye contact and walked quicker if you tried to offer them a cup. J
