Obedience Brings Blessing

ObedienceBlogChad went to our evangelism training one Friday night but was unable to go with our team on the next day’s Saturday outreach. But God still had outreach plans for Chad!

As Chad drove through the city on Saturday, he saw a man sitting on the side of the road. As he passed the man, the Lord asked him if he was going to put into practice what he had learned at the evangelism training the night before. Chad was a little nervous, because this was the first time he’d ever tried to lead anyone to Christ. But he immediately turned his vehicle around, parked, and got out to talk to the man.

This man had a case of beer by his side and a can of beer in his hand. Chad ministered to him using our pocket reference card, and the gentleman prayed to receive Jesus! As he prayed, tears began to roll down the man’s cheek. He was so thankful that Chad had stopped what he was doing to minister to him.

Then, unexpectedly, the man continued to give Chad thanks. With tears still in his eyes, he reached to shake Chad’s hand. “I felt something in his hand,” Chad told me “and I knew exactly what it was.” When Chad opened his hand, he saw a hundred-dollar bill. Chad didn’t want to receive it because he hadn’t reached out to the man in the hopes of being rewarded, but the man insisted because he was so thankful for what the Lord had just done for him. So Chad received the blessing from the gentleman.

When Jesus needed money to pay His tax, he told Peter to go fishing, and Peter found the tax money both for Jesus and for himself in the mouth of the fish he caught. Chad and his family really needed that hundred-dollar bill. The Lord knew that, and basically, He had told Chad to “go fishing.”

Jesus said, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” (Matt. 4:19, KJV). The Lord needed Chad to minister the good news to this man sitting at the side of the road. Chad was obedient to hear from the Lord. He acted on the word of God to him, and he found a blessing on the other side of his obedience. The Bible says, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land” (Isa. 1:19, NKJV), and, “He who reaps receives wages” (John 4:36, NKJV). I’m sure Chad and his family ate well that Saturday night! There is always a blessing on the other side of our obedience.

I’m so thankful there is another name written in heaven! All of heaven is rejoicing! I pray today that you will be obedient to the Lord’s prompting when He wants you to minister to the lost. You can do it! If God is for you, no man can be against you!


The REACH – Birmingham, AL

Throughout my life the Lord has always put very specific people and places on my heart. Whether a single individual or an entire city, I am unable to rest until that group has been reached. Several years ago the Lord specifically put Birmingham, Alabama on my heart. I began to pray and intercede, not only for the people of Alabama but for the city as well.

On April 27th 2011 the state of Alabama was struck with over 200 tornadoes in a 48hour period. In that 2 day period of time countless people lost everything, including many who lost their lives. Kenneth Copeland Ministries immediately sent our Disaster Relief team to Birmingham and the surrounding affected areas to ensure our partners were safe and provided for. We were overjoyed to find that our partners had stood on the Word of God and had been spared from the destruction.
Upon returning home, our leadership team began planning a Thanksgiving Outreach for the people of Birmingham. Partnering with Word of Life Christian Center, a local Birmingham ministry, we prepared to hand out 1,300 Thanksgiving dinners complete with an entire turkey and all the fixings.
Our team touched down and began ministering in the streets of Birmingham on Tuesday, November 15th. By Friday the team had led 205 people to the Lord! Saturday morning, the day of the outreach, my heart was overwhelmed with joy when we pulled into the church parking lot to find a line of people waiting for their Thanksgiving dinners two hours early!

What the people who stood in line that day didn’t know was that they were about to receive much more than turkey. They were about to be blessed spirit, soul and body!  Before we distributed the meals we held a short service with praise and worship and a message of love from the Father.

 I fought to hold back streams of tears as 539 people responded to the altar call.

The devil tried to destroy the hearts of the people of Alabama, but the Lord had other plans. When the Lord puts a burden on your heart don’t ignore it. Even though we don’t always understand why He asks us to do something, if we are faithful to step out in obedience, lives will be changed every time! Praise the Lord!

People of all ages, races, cultures are being born again on the streets of Fort Worth! The Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is being preached and the love of God is being poured out

Here are a few testimonies:

On Monday morning we walked into a business with a stack of SWBC flyers in our hand and the manager immediately told us, “You can’t be soliciting in here.” I said, “Ma’am, while we are here, is there anything we can pray with you about?” She said, “Salvation!” We prayed with her right there in the front of the store to receive Jesus! While she was filling out our decision card, we asked her if she needed healing in here body. She said, “Yes, I have diabetes.” We prayed for her and told her to call our prayer line with the testimony!  

Bus Station and met a lady who was sitting on a bench. We sat down with her and invited her to the meeting. Then we asked her “If you died right now, where would you go?”  She said, “Well, I hope Heaven.”  We led her in a prayer to receive Jesus! Then we led her in a prayer to receive the Holy Spirit! Then we asked her if she had any pain in her body.  She said she had some kind of disease that affects the joints in her arms and legs. We prayed and then asked her to move her arms to see if they felt better. She said, “Yes! My hands do! Let me stand to see what my hip says!”  Yes my hip feels better too! She was saved, filled, and healed while waiting for her bus! Glory to God! 

As our team walked the streets of Fort Worth this week, one soul winner talked to a man working on a construction site. He was already saved but prayed a prayer of rededication to live a life on fire for God. Then he said, “You need to talk to those construction workers over on the next street.” Our soul winner said, “Okay.” The next day as our team swept the streets with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, this same man named Kevin shouted, “Hey! Did you talk to those workers about Jesus? You need to talk to them! They have a lunch break at noon.” So at noon our soul winning team went over and prayed with the whole group of 10 construction workers to receive Jesus! Hallelujah!

Our team jumped on a bus and asked the bus driver, “May we pray a quick prayer of blessing over your bus?” She said, “Sure! But wait a few minutes so that the bus is full of people.” Our team stood by and watched as the bus filled up with people. Right before she left, one of our team members stood on the bus and prayed a prayer of blessing over the bus. Then she shared the scriptures in Romans and led the whole bus in a prayer to receive Jesus! Everyone shouted, “Jesus, come into my heart! Be my Lord and my Savior! Amen!”

Jesus said to pray to the Lord of the harvest that He would send forth laborers into the harvest field. This year we have equipped so many new laborers to be skillful and effective in ministering salvation. We will continue to go into the streets and preach the Gospel; we will not stop until everyone has heard that Jesus is Lord!

5728_1182503436414_1043040702_561812_2669291_n

 As a result, within the last two weeks, 2752 people have made Jesus the Lord of their life!  Jesus said to pray to the Lord of the harvest that He would send forth laborers into the harvest field. This year we have equipped so many new laborers to be skillful and effective in ministering salvation. We will continue to go into the streets and preach the Gospel; we will not stop until everyone has heard that Jesus is Lord!


2009 West Coast Evangelism Conference

Long BeachThe Glory of the Lord shined once again on the streets of Long Beach. Our KCM Evangelism Team partnered with The Sanctuary, our local host church and we hit the streets promoting the WCBC and shared Jesus with everyone in our reach.

 

The Lord also led us to a few local nursing homes to share the love of God. We are praising God over the 2188 people that prayed the prayer of salvation!

 

                                                                                                                                                                                           A  few testimonies:       

A team member was walking down the street of Long Beach when a lady sitting at a restaurant patio said, “Thank you for smiling at me.” She said, “Your smile blessed me!” The team member stopped and began sharing the love of God with this lady. She shared the scriptures from Romans and this lady prayed to ask Jesus into her heart. The light of Jesus was shining bright on our team member’s face!

 One of our team members prayed with a group of 10 young people who said they were all atheists; they all gave their lives to the Lord!

 The team was also asked to pray for several employees at a nursing home. They said, “We watch Kenneth Copeland on TV every week and are so blessed that his team had come to the nursing home.” They said, “Please pray for our people here and for every one of our employees, that they will be blessed.” As our team laid hands on the staff, the power of God ministered peace, healing and hope to every person! Hallelujah! Glory to God!

While on the beach, one of our team members asked a street performer if she could say a prayer after he was done. He said, “Yes.” When he finished his dance routine, he shouted to the crowd surrounding him, “Hey, don’t leave! This young lady wants to say a prayer.” Our team member shared the wonderful Word of God on salvation and then had the entire crowd repeat the prayer to ask Jesus into their hearts! More than 30 people were saved at that one moment of time!

Long Beach 085

Long Beach 090

  A team member walked up to a guy and said, “Where are you going when you die some day?” He said, “I will not go to Heaven because I have tattoos and piercings.” The team member said, “The only thing that will keep you out of Heaven is not believing on Jesus; just repeat this prayer after me to receive Jesus in your heart.” The man prayed and gave his life to the Lord.

The team walked around the convention center and prayed with 5 of the employees to receive Jesus. A team member said to an employee, “If you died right now, where you would go?” The employee said, “No one has ever asked me that question. I don’t know where I would go.” Then the team member shared the scriptures from Romans and she began crying and said, “Thank you for sharing this with me.” This employee prayed with the team member and asked Jesus into her heart! Hallelujah!

 Long Beach 069

Another team member walked up to the table with Long Beach information and asked the gentleman there, “Sir, we are walking around asking everyone a few questions. Where would you go when you die some day?” He said, “I hope to go to Heaven.” The team member read from the Pocket Reference for Soul Winning Card and said, “Repeat this prayer after me.” He prayed to ask Jesus into his heart! The harvest is ripe; people are ready to receive Jesus!

 

At the bus stop, a team member walked up to an older man with a cane. She asked him where he is going when he dies. He said, “I am going down.” The team member led him in the prayer of salvation and then said, “The Bible says in Mark 16 that he who believes shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. May I pray for you?” The man said, “Yes, every day my health gets worse.” The team member said, “Well, I believe that after we pray every day you will get stronger and stronger because of the life of Jesus that is now inside you!” The man walked away with a smile on his face and a spring in his step! Glory to God!

 Long Beach 061

A team member walked up to two men and asked them, “If you died right now, where would you go?” They said, “We are going to Heaven.” Then the team member said, “Well, if God were to say, Why should I let you into Heaven, what would you tell Him?” They said, “Well, we are not sure because we are together.” The team member shared the scriptures from Romans and they both prayed to ask Jesus into their heart. They smiled and said, “Thank you so much!” They believed on the Lord Jesus and were saved!

 

In front of the Jack in the Box, a team member walked up to two young ladies. She began to ask them where they would go when they die some day. One of the ladies said, “Hey, I prayed with you downtown a few days ago!” The team member turned to the other lady and shared what the Word says and said, “Pray this prayer with me.” She hesitated a little. Her friend (who had already prayed to ask Jesus into her heart a few days earlier) grabbed her hand and said, “I will pray this prayer with you.” Both prayed, “Jesus, come into my heart! Be my Lord and my Savior!”

 Long Beach 111

On 2nd street, a team member walked up to a mother and daughter and handed them a flyer, inviting them to the WCBC. As the mother opened the flyer and saw the information about healing school, she said, “That is so funny. I was just talking to my daughter today and wondered where there was a healing meeting.” The team member asked them where they were going when they die some day. They were not sure. They prayed and asked Jesus into their heart, both mother and daughter. Then they said, “We are coming to that healing meeting on Saturday. Thanks so much!”

 

The team prayed with people for healing and saw the life of God enter into the bodies of several people! Ankles healed! Backs healed! Depression gone! Many lives set free by the power of God!

by Riley Stephenson

 

 

 

 

 

When you hear the word “evangelism,” what comes to mind? A loud, obnoxious preacher screaming at people on the street corner? Going door to door in a neighborhood with little or no results?

In his book, It’s All About the Numbers, evangelist Riley Stephenson addresses these common misconceptions about evangelism and provides a refreshingly new approach to sharing your faith with very fruitful results!

After reading this book, you will:

  • Have a passion for the lost!
  • Love people in a greater way.
  • Share Jesus effectively.
  • Overcome any hurdles you have had in the past in witnessing to someone.
  • See yourself as God sees you and be able to do what He has called you to do.
  • Teach others how to win the lost.
  • See countless numbers of people born into the Kingdom of GodIf your heart longs to see your family, co-workers, friends, acquaintances, and even strangers saved, then this book is your tool for effective, result-oriented evangelism!

The Glory is Shining in Branson!

february-2111

The Glory is shining through the people! On Monday March 2nd our evangelism team partnered with a group at Faith Life Church. We hit the streets and invited people to the Campaign.

The Lord led us to the mall where entertainer, Mike Walker was singing,” How great thou art”. When he finished, he gave us the microphone and we gave an altar call and prayed for salvation and healing!

People were saved and healed! One man received Jesus and said his back was hurting. We laid hands on him and prayed. Signs follow the Word and he said, “the pain is gone, the pain is gone.” And then he said, “thank you” One Lady received healing in her back and knees!

140 people prayed the prayer of salvation!

IGNITING THE FIRE OF EVANGELISM!

Tonight Kelly shared from Reinhard Bonnke’s book, “Evangelism by Fire.” The first chapter, titled, “When Arson is Not a Crime,” talks about the role of an evangelist, which is to light a fire in the human spirit. This is what we do when we go out to the into the highways and byways; we light a fire in the human spirit. There should be fire in those who witness and work! Fire in those who preach! Fire in the truth we preach!
 
One lady named Christine spoke up . . . this was her first time to Friday Night Evangelism. She said, “Several months ago, I was at a meeting and someone prophesied over me that I would be an ‘arsonist.’ I didn’t know what that meant, but I knew he was talking about evangelism. I came tonight not knowing what to expect. This is confirmation that the Lord is training me to light a fire in the lives of people!!!!!” Hallelujah!christine
Christine, igniting the fire of evangelism, in the hearts of these two ladies. The girl, who translated for her mother, is holding the Pocket Reference for Soul Winning Card.

Just a few of numerous testimonies:

 

 “I had the privilege of going out with you, we are actually kicking off our first street evangelism on August 16, 2008, next week Saturday.  We are taking to our church the simplified method introduced by yourself to our church and are going to go into our communities and bring people to Jesus…”Numi P.  Torrance, CA

PASTOR BOB FROM SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH

 pastor-bob

      

 

He drove 18 hours to come to the soul winning training in Long Beach. He had been looking for a way to reach his community. He had discovered that debating theology and doctrine does not work! His heart to reach the people compelled him to come to Long Beach His goal for the week: to read from the “Pocket Reference for Soul Winning Card” to prove that it either works or doesn’t. Pastor Bob comes from an engineering background and he believes that something must be tested to see if it works After experiencing such frustration in witnessing in Utah, he was looking for a better way. After one day of soul winning in Long Beach, Pastor Bob led 38 people to the Lord. He commented, “This card works! The Word of God speaks to a person’s spirit man and he gets saved! I am taking this back to Utah and we are going to reach our community for Jesus Christ!” 

Pastor Marie said, “Going out today has caused me to see people different, each person has a soul. Everyone needs Jesus.”  

   

 BO AND SINGI FROM OKLAHOMA CITY

bo-and-singi     

 

Bo and Singi came from Oklahoma City to learn how to win souls! Singi (in black top and white shorts) came from a Buddhist background. In fact, when she became a Christian years ago, her family disowned her. The one desire of Singi’s heart was to see her mother saved. After witnessing to many, many people on the streets of Long Beach one day, Singi made a very important phone call to a Christian friend who lives in the same town as her mother. With the “Pocket Reference for Soul Winning Card” in hand, Singi read from the card with tears streaming down her face. She told her friend to translate the card into her mother’s language and go to her mother’s house immediately. You see, Singi’s mother is dying. Singi wants to see her mother in Heaven some day. About 30 minutes later, Singi’s phone rings. It’s her Christian friend. She says, “Singi, your mother prayed the prayer to ask Jesus into her heart.” We all rejoiced with Singi, as the angels in Heaven were rejoicing!

 

SHAWN FROM SACRAMENTO, CA

shawn 

   Shawn came from Sacramento, California, to become a more on-fire soul winner! As he walked the streets of Long Beach, the Lord used him to minister not only salvation, but also healing! He is taking the compassion of the Lord and the fire for souls back to his church in Sacramento. Glory to God!

 

Shawn shared, “In Mark 16, the Bible says that he who believes shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. Do you have any pain in your body?” The gentleman said that his leg was in pain. Shawn reached down and laid his hand on the man’s leg. Afterwards, the man began moving his leg and said the pain was gone! Hallelujah!

 

“I’ve been crying out to God for over the past few years for supernatural outlets to preach the gospel and win the lost for Jesus Christ…Through Riley’s ministry, God has allowed me to pray for other’s to receive their healing as a result. By simple BELIEVING and quoting what the word says, God’s word cannot return to us void.” Shawn Hardesty – Antelope, Ca

 

 

 9-YEAR-OLD ADONEI

This 9-year-old girl ran throughout the streets of Long Beach talking to every person she saw. She would say, “Excuse me. I have a few questions to ask you.” Every person stopped to hear what this young girl had to say. As she shared the scriptures from Romans, each person’s heart opened to hear the Gospel preached from this little girl. Old and young people gave their hearts to the Lord! She kept saying, “I want to share this card with everyone!”

 

 

 

After this woman prayed to ask Jesus into her heart, Adonei asked, “Do you have any pain in your body?” The woman said, “Yes, my stomach has been bothering me.” Adonei reached out her hand and laid it on this woman’s stomach. Then she began to pray, “Thank you Lord Jesus for healing this woman’s stomach. Amen.” Afterwards, this woman said, “The pain is gone!”

 

 


Soul Winning Testimonies

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. Then she said, “Is there anything else I can pray with you about?” One guy said, “That one prayer we just prayed with you covers it all! It did everything for me!” Amen! The blessing of God came into this man’s life and took care of everything!

 

Woman Asks for Prayer

Betsy approached a young mother and shared the scriptures from Romans with her. Then this young mother prayed the prayer of salvation. Afterwards, she said, “Would you pray for my grandmother?” Betsy asked, “What’s wrong?” The woman said, “She has cancer.” Betsy prayed for healing for this woman’s grandmother. 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

Kelly walked into an arcade at the mall. She approached a young girl with a baby and asked her where she would go when she dies. The girl said that she didn’t know. Kelly shared the Word of God and this girl prayed to ask Jesus into her heart. 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!

 

Saved in Ross

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!
