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.

"The harvest truly is plentiful"

Yesterday on outreach we ventured into Piedmont Circle. I love doing outreach in great weather, people were out in numbers enjoying the day.

At one of our first stops a woman named Jackie invited us in to pray for her, she had much pain in her left leg. We began to share about the kingdom and how it was Gods desire to heal her.
Renee laid her hand on her leg as we prayed, and at first there was no change. After the second time we asked her to check for pain, she couldn't find any. You should have seen the surprised look on her face and the joy that came into the room.

Her adult daughter Tamika also wanted prayer and then we prayed for her other daughter. We had some good words for them and they want us to come back for a house church meeting sometime.

In the meantime Jackie had gone outside and shared with her neighbor that she had gotten healed. The neighbor who had previously said "I'm not interested" was now wide open for prayer. We prayed for her knees and encourgaged her. I'm not sure if she got healed, she had trouble making eye contact with us, I think she was under some conviction.

Our next stop was a group of six or seven people hanging out on a porch. As usual it felt like they would not be open, well as usual our feelings were wrong.They were wide open. We prayed for a few of them and ministered to one young man for about twenty minutes he poured out his heart as we shared the Gospel of the kingdom with him.
On our way to visit Ms. Roland we preached and prophesied to seven more people. One young man invited us to come to his apt. Thursday for a house church meeting.

I believe we need to continually feed on the reality "the harvest truly is plentiful." Not because we think it is or want it to be, but because Jesus said it is.

Jesus said it, lets believe it!
