We zoomed into Rolling Hills apartments Saturday and it looked like something right out of a cops episode.
As we pulled up we seemed to have interrupted a deal going on. A few cars sped away and a few guys ran back to a corner breezeway. You should have seen their faces as they realized we were headed straight for them.
Armed with the love of God and the gospel of the kingdom, we began to share our message to five or six young men obviously up to no good. It was crazy, one young man began weeping as Curtis began to deal with him. We got prophetic words and encouraged them to live for God.
We eventually joined hands in a circle as we led them in a sinners prayer. It was a very powerful encounter as you could tangibly feel both the love and conviction of God.
The next day a few of us came back with a bible for a guy named Jamal. They get a lot of drug traffic so again as we pulled up everyone got nervous and ran. As I approached them one guy was very nervous saying, "what do you want?" "what do you want?"
As I pulled out a bible you would have thought I pulled out a knife, he kind of jumped back as he realized what I had.(now that's fun)
This was our fourth time in this neighborhood and each time some amazing things have happened. Many have given up on this neighborhood but we believe God has great plans. Pray the Lord of the harvest would send forth laborers as this fruit is falling of the vine.
