On our last outreach the weather wasn't cooperating. The forecast was colder temperatures, showers heavy at times, basically a cold damp forecast. Most times this happens our first response is usually "We better stay in where it's safe and warm." This is usually followed up with a hearty "amen" from our flesh and the enemy nodding in agreement.
Well we decided we were going to surprise the enemy and do the opposite of what he thought we would do. We had a team of Five and decided to hit the bus station. Always a place ripe with precious people in greet need.
The women went to one side and Terry and I went to the other. We met one young man very open to the Gospel. After encouraging him for a while he started to open up and really think about his future without God. He had said he was a believer but then confessed he was not really a follower at all.
As we shared how the current events of our day are in line with the word of God, he began to become more concerned about his own life and future.We brought him to the edge of a decision and he said he would call us. I believe we planted some seeds that will continue to bear fruit. It always amazes me how God can bring total strangers to a level of sharing their inner heart in a few minutes.
As we looked over at Renee and Cathy, they had four women lining up for prayer and ministry. One women with knee problems received healing after being led in a prayer of forgiveness with tears welling up in her eyes. God shook her with His compasion and healing and let us have the priveledge of being there. Awesome Jesus!
