The Lord is moving among us. As student missionaries posture their heart in response to the presence of the Lord, we are seeing transformation happen on the streets and in their personal lives.
Going house to house, team members prayed in response to requests at each door. A common prayer was, “Lord send rain!” We awoke yesterday to a rushing pour of rain that didn’t just get everything wet but flooded areas we were planning to serve. Team members didn’t get discouraged, but embraced the opportunity to pick up their cross and pray Heaven down on the highway and byways.
As the day progressed the clouds cleared and team members got their gear and headed to serve. Pushing mowers, picking up trash, & plowing through brush to clear pathways to people’s homes, awakened hearts to how God is plowing through our hearts as we serve and seek Gospel opportunities.
One Team member said, “Clearing the brush is showing me how The Holy Spirit is clearing the brush in my life, so I can display Him without hinderance.”
By evening, we hosted a bonfire that brought out the community and students played with kids while others engaged in gospel conversations with their parents. About 10pm we packed up and headed out to the casino! Packed full of cars we got permission to set up at the exit and offer burgers and prayer to everyone that was leaving. Team members began conversations with bouncers, gamblers, and night club hoppers! Imagine leaving a casino at midnight and being offered prayer as you stumbled home from defeat. Gospel conversations permeated the air as Jesus was lifted high in the night watches among the hopeless.
Please pray for the Lord to capture hearts today and open doors for salvation!
