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.

Born again

Tuesday nights outreach to Stonehenge was awesome. But then again every outreach is awesome, what a privilege to bring the good news of the kingdom.

For some reason midweek outreaches always seem to be a bit more challenging, mostly for our flesh. As we entered the neighborhood we heard those familiar thoughts that say are you sure you want to do this? Oh yes were sure!

After a little bit of polite rejection at a few homes one woman invited us in. Her name is Esther we prayed for her 5 year old adopted son he has behavior problems. He seemed to respond right away and calm down. Esther's a believer and as we encouraged her she shared about her husband being very sick he wasn't at home so we just prayed for him. She began to respond as God began to touch her, she thanked us for stopping in.

Next there was a guy named Chris sitting on his porch we approached him, shared the gospel with him and had a few prophetic words. He responded by saying "I really need a new direction". For the next twenty minutes we continued to preach, it was definitely a divine appointment. He began to really respond and started to come under a lot of conviction. We had the privilege of leading him to the Lord, after he prayed he was like "wow" and you could feel the Spirit all over us.

He was on his way inside to call his aunt who had been praying for him. We had really stressed the importance of going public, confessing with our mouths. This is when God really takes us seriously, hopefully we'll be following up and try to baptize him in water soon.

We ended the night preaching to a group of about 15 teenagers most of them were drinking so things got a little bit crazy but we were able to get a hold of a few of them. Also stopped in to visit Quin a key guy we've been praying for.
