Sending the Seventy

sending-the-seventy

What a time!  About 50 youth and young adults went out into Cuny Homes and made an impact in the community.  The Holy Spirit was definitely on the move as we tried to bring our two loves — our love for our community and our love for Jesus – together.

We divided into groups of two and three, knocked on doors, asked people if they had any physical needs that they were lacking, and if there was anything we could pray for them about.  Some people shared their needs.  Others were like: “no thank you we’ve got it covered. “  Most everybody wanted prayer.  In addition, we shared the good news that Jesus loves us, died for our sins, and rose again, so that we might have new and abundant life.  5 people repented from sin and believed in Jesus as their Savior and Lord.  Countless more people were touched by the warm smiles, handshakes, hugs, and petitions before God that were made by people being obedient to God’s Great Commission.  (Matthew 28:19).  Personally, I watched a 79- year old man weep before me as we told him that Jesus loved him and that heaven was his today because of his faith in Him.  One young man, told us he needed a job, and we were able to get him a job interview this week, AND more importantly He gave his life to Jesus.

The residents weren’t the only ones who were blessed — we were too!  Some residents prayed for us and encouraged us as we went door to door.  Some residents told us, “Thank you guys for having the courage to share Jesus.”    

In the end, we all met up and shared stories about what happened.  The excitement in our voices rang out as we shared the tales of what God did that day.  Many people testified of their faith in God deepening as a result of what they saw God do and how God used them.  What a time!  If you are in the Houston area, won’t you join us next time?

    Man, it really is a freeing experience. Especially when you see Him move!

    What a blessing to serve the Lord with gladness. There’s no greater joy that offering the world Jesus.
