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.

God's word doesn't return void

A couple days after our last outreach we decided to follow up on Charma, she had recently re dedicated her life to the Lord. As we knocked on her door she was in the middle of doing some hair cuts so she couldn't really talk. We decided to go down the street and talk to some others. As we went a young man started waving to us, it was a guy named Earl. We pray for him often and hadn't seen him for a while.

He was so excited to see us, he had gotten saved last year and we've had the privilege of encouraging him when we do see him. He's doing awesome! He's been plugged into a church and actually has been bringing some of the guys he used to run with out to church.

He began to share how God recently got him a job, and how he is so blown away about having a legitimate Job. He used to deal drugs for income and he said "nobody just gets a job down here". It was a miracle we bumped into him because he actually lives on the other side of town now.

God's word we sow into peoples lives doesn't return void it's powerful, our job is to sow seed and God will bring the increase.

We prayed for him and exhorted him to preach the Kingdom, heal the sick and cast out devils. He's got a powerful call on his life and were so thankful for the privilege of seeing the life of God in him. Praise God!
