A Girl Searching for God
Nichole walked up to Aubrey and Brooklyn, two teens at the mall. She said that she was taking a survey and wanted to ask them some questions. Brooklyn was especially excited about taking the survey. Nichole proceeded with the questions: “Do you live in the area? Do you go to church? Some day when you die, where are you going?” Neither girl knew for sure where they were going. Nichole led them in the prayer of salvation. Afterwards, Brooklyn said, “I have been talking to God lately.” Then Kelly shared with Brooklyn, “Do you have a Bible?” She said, “Yes.” Kelly said, “Well, start reading in the Book of John. God wants to talk to you through the Bible.” Brooklyn said she would read her Bible tonight. Hallelujah!
New Lease on Life
Nichole met Robin and Ken in Wal-Mart. They just moved to Fort Worth from New Mexico. They were both saved. But Nichole went on to ask them, “On a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being on fire for God and 1 being lukewarm, where would you rate your walk with God?” They both said, “3.” Nichole prayed a prayer for them to rededicate their lives to the Lord. She invited them to church and gave them some information about our church. They both said, “We feel like we have a new lease on life!” Glory!
One Prayer Covers All!
Janelle walked up to two guys at the mall. She led them to the Lord.

The blessing of God came into this man’s life and took care of everything!
Woman Asks for Prayer

Then she gave her a Pocket Reference for Soul Winning card so that she could share the same scriptures and prayer with her grandmother.
Divine Appointment in Sporting Goods

Compelling Them to Come to EMIC
Kelly walked up to Vanessa in Wal-Mart. She was carrying a huge Valentines monkey. She was headed to check out and Kelly stopped her. She asked her the question, “Where would you go if you died tonight?” She said that she had no idea. Kelly led her in the prayer of salvation. Afterwards, while getting Vanessa’s address and phone number, Kelly found out that she is single and pregnant. In fact, she just found out she is pregnant. Kelly said, “I know that coming to a big church can be hard at first when you don’t know anyone. But you know me. Ask for me when you come to church and you can sit with me.” We are compelling people to not only be saved, but to also come to EMIC!
Wife in Tears
Allison, who is 9 years old, walked up to an older man sitting on a bench in the mall. She asked him where he would go when he dies some day. He said that he would go to Heaven because he is a good person and does good things. Then Allison shared the scriptures from Romans and said, “Pray this prayer with me now.” He prayed the prayer to ask Jesus into his heart. At that moment, his wife walked up and stood behind him. She looked at Allison with tears in her eyes and said, “You are an amazing little girl. I am going to pray for you tonight. Thank you for being such a blessing to us.”
Saved in Arcade

Afterwards, she said, “That’s so funny that you came to talk to me about Jesus.” Kelly said, “Why?” She said, “Just yesterday someone gave me a CD about God and I have been thinking about Him lately.” Praise God!

Prayer for Troops in El Chico
Kelly walks by El Chico and is compelled to go in. The restaurant is packed! The hostess says, “How many in your party?” Kelly says, “Oh, we are not eating here today. We are here to say a prayer for the troops. Would that be okay?” The hostess says, “I’ll have to get my manager.” The manager comes out and Kelly says, “Hi. I am a minister from a local church and I would like to say a prayer for our troops.” The manager says, “What do you mean? Do you mean walk up to each table?” “No,” Kelly said, “I would like to pray for the whole restaurant at once.” The manager said, “Well, how?” Kelly said, “I will shout so everyone can hear me.” The manager said, “Okay, why don’t you stand in the middle by the bar and pray there?” Kelly said, “Great!” She walked over to the bar, which was in the middle of the restaurant, and said, “Hello everyone. I am here to pray a quick prayer over our troops.” She began and finished with “If you do not know where you would go when you die, just say, Jesus, come into my heart. Be my Lord and my Savior.” Afterwards, one lady came up and said, “Thank you for doing that!” The manager turned to Tad, another member of our team, and said, “That was awesome!”
Buddy Gets Saved!
At the first house we went to, we knocked on the door and Buddy answered. As we talked to him, he said that he had lived in Rhome all of his life. In fact, he pointed to a house across the street and said that he and his dad built that house years ago. Kelly said, “Who lives there now?” He said, “My ex-wife. She took everything I had.” Kelly asked him the questions from the “Pocket Reference for Soul Winning Card” and Buddy gave his life to the Lord! Hallelujah! We invited him to come to EMIC. We gave him a “Welcome Home Brochure,” a BVOV Magazine, and a “Fear Not Card.” Then Kelly said, “What else can we pray with you about today?” Buddy said, “I need a job. I don’t have any money.” We prayed that God would open up a door of opportunity for Buddy this week. His heart was touched and he said that he is coming to EMIC!
Family Coming to EMIC
As we approached the next house, a lady and two kids answered the door. We shared the information about EMIC and invited her family to come and visit. She said, “Oh, yes, I know all about KCM/EMIC.” My neighbor next door works for KCM. We said, “Who is that?” She said, “Robert Price. He told us about Angel Food and we go to your church every month to get a box of food.” Kelly said, “Have you ever come to our church on a Sunday to visit?” She said, “No.” Kelly said, “Well, come this Sunday and visit!” She said, “Yes, I will!” Seeds of love were already planted in this family by Robert Price and his family. Praise God!
A Lost Son Is Coming Home!
An older gentleman named Steve came outside as we walked up to the next house. We shared that we are from EMIC/KCM. He said that he knew all about the ministry and enjoys watching Kenneth Copeland on TV. He said that he and his family have a church they already go to every Sunday. Allen asked, “Is there anything we can pray with you about tonight?” Steve said, “Well, I always need prayer for something. Please pray for my son Steven. He is in Iraq and is supposed to come home in July. Please pray that he comes home and that he gives his life to the Lord.” Allen prayed for Steve and his son Steven and got their phone number. We told him that someone would be calling him and that we would continue to pray for his son Steven. He was touched by the love of God and thanked us.
“You Have Opened a Door for Me, Lord”
At the next house, Allen walked up and knocked on the door. No one answered and the house looked uninhabited. All of a sudden, an older gentleman named Edward walked around the side of the house. He said, “Hello. Can I help you?” Allen shared that we are with KCM/EMIC. Edward said, “I love to watch Kenneth Copeland. He is a great preacher! And you know why I watch him? All the other preachers I used to watch have died, but Kenneth Copeland is still going strong! I love to watch him!” Allen asked, “Is there anything we can pray with you about today?” Edward said, “Yes!” and grabbed Allen’s hand and placed it on his head. Edward said, “Pray the prayer of healing over me. I have diabetes, prostate cancer, and a bad heart.” Allen began speaking to Edward’s body, and as he was praying, Edward said to the Lord, “You have opened a door for me, Lord.” Afterward, Edward began sharing about the goodness of God in his life. He said, “I needed some dirt and I asked the Lord for some. You know that a load of dirt costs about $100. Well, a man in a truck pulled up in front of my house with some dirt and said that the people down the road didn’t want it. He offered it to me for $10 a load! I knew the Lord did this for me.” Allen shared, “The Lord loves you! God has a plan for your life.” Edward said, “I’ve always felt like I was supposed to pray for sick people.” Allen invited Edward to come to EMIC. He said, “Well, I did come once several years ago and got a cold handshake.” Allen said, “I am sorry that happened to you. I am an usher and I would love for you to come back. I will get you a great seat next to me.” Edward was touched. He said, “I used to have a best friend named Allen.” We got Edward’s phone number and address to follow up with him. He was clearly touched by the love of God. Allen gave him a big hug before we left. We are bringing the love of God to the people in neighborhoods around the church. Hallelujah!
