Matthew 10:7-8

As you go, preach, saying, "the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

Divine appointment

Yesterday we went to Waughtown to hit some new neighborhoods. The first house was a family Renee had ministered to a few months ago. Their adult son is battling M.S.and actually lives close to us. Their father was outside, he is a believer so we were able to encourage him and he actually encouraged us. We gave him our number and hopefully they'll be in touch so we can pray for his son.

The next house was a total divine appointment. A man named Tony answered the door. He's been out of prison for a year and although he met the Lord in prison he's been wrestling with a lot of temptation and confusion.

He was into the gang seen pretty heavily but trying to change. He's got custody of his three young children and is in need of employment. We were able preach to him and really encourage him. He was remarking how he was just saying to his girlfriend "I can't keep going down this same road, somethings got to change," and then we show up on his doorstep preaching the Gospel. How awesome is that???

We were able to pray with him and he rededicated his life to the Lord. Were going back tomorrow to encourage him some more.

Here's another pretty cool detail. After we left his house we knocked on a door the next street over and it was a pastor who had a house church that meets there a few times a week with church meetings, prayer and they go out on the streets as well.

They have a ministry that reaches out to drug addicts and gang members. He gave us a flier and hopefully Tony can get plugged in there. Thank you Jesus!!!
