Tonight our teams sat in AWE as each team member shared the great things God has done in Cherokee. Testimonies of Freedom experienced on the CrossWalk to surrender of hearts as students canvased the entire city with prayer, invites, and gospel conversations.
Several shared story after story of addiction, abuse, suicide, anger and loneliness. It was absolutely heart wrenching but full of hope as the Gospel empowered students to boldly proclaim Jesus. .
During the Grill Walk outreach, a few students encountered a home of a former Police Officer. They knocked on his door 3 times, at both the front and back porch. They learned that he recently lost his job due to a suicide attempt and that his wife had just left him. He was lost, lonely and tired of fighting. One of our team members shared that “there is hope, and God can change situations. But even if He doesn’t, He can change your perspective”. After a prompting of the Holy Spirit, they asked if He wanted to pray and ask for forgiveness and invite Jesus into His life and he did! This man was moved to tears seeing young people in the community that cared enough to share and said “I only came because you knocked on the door 3 times. so I figured it must have been important and it is”. Our team responded, “you better believe it is!”
As we walk in the Awe of God, each step of instant obedience, and are relentless, God moves powerfully! Would you continue to pray for our teams as they take Cherokee by storm tomorrow with 9 service projects. We are believing for revival!
