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.

Winston-Salem sees 13% drop in violent crime.

We've been laboring in and regularly praying for 28 different neighborhoods in Winston Salem. It's been an exciting adventure and God has done more than we could ask, think, or imagine!

Recently I came across this headline from the Winston Salem Journal concerning  crime rates.

"Homicides in Winston-Salem fell 44 percent, from nine killings to five during the first six months of this year, compared with the same time last year. Vehicle thefts dropped 17 percent."

"Experts have been hard-pressed to explain the decrease in crime when a weak economy has put a continuing strain on local police budgets."

I believe this change is directly related to a handful of Christians who made a decision to be available to the will of God this past year.

We made a decision to shine our lights and invade the darkness with the power of the kingdom of Heaven and it's amazing to see the atmosphere change. Glory to God!
