Today we had an incredible opportunity to go back to Enid and engage with the Marshallese people; as well as, Grill Walk 4 communities sharing the gospel and giving burgers, while praying with each family as we went door to door. We had a unique opportunity to go back into Okeene, a city we were in last week, there we saw the footprint God had left on the local church from our team. For one of the Forgotten Ministries team members, he said, “It was amazing for me to step back into a place, my hometown, and love on a community that i grew up in as that bad kid.” Tonight, he was able to show the transformation God has done in his life through Jesus!
We gathered for debrief and the stories came flooding in. This night was different though. It wasn’t story after story of salvation, but story after story of vulnerability. It was stories of how God was putting this whole puzzle together in joining Awe Star with Forgotten Ministries and all these different churches and youth groups. They were stories of obedience even in the unknown. They were stories of stepping over fear to walk in the courage of the Holy Spirit. They were stories that unified our team. We spent an hour and a half in worship and fellowship (talking about the things of God) and it was special.
But the overlying story in it all, we need to pray for those who are laboring. In this part of Oklahoma, it’s harvest season. Several people we talked to, mentioned the harvest. They stood barefoot, weary, and sighed a relief that the harvest was through. It prompted us to pray deeper for the those who labor. Isn’t that the same heart in God’s Kingdom? The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Would you join us tonight as we pray for the laborers in the Kingdom of Heaven? Pray for God to renew their strength, refresh their souls, and breathe rest over them. May they not grow weary in doing good.
