A big shout of thanks to all who prayed and sent support our way for the outreach on Modrell Ave. on July 23rd. Thank you! *Also, a big thank you to the many folk who came out and assisted in the outreach and helped share the love of Jesus. Thank you!
It was awesome having North Central Indiana Teen Challenge with us again! You brothers are incredible! A few of guys were able to share their testimonies which were powerful!
A big shout of praise to the Lord for answering our prayer for “no rain!” Hallelujah! We have had rain during our last four outdoor events, so we were earnestly praying for dry weather and it was! And even though it was very hot and humid, we were blessed. Thank you Lord!
The turnout for the event was incredible. We estimate that 150 to 200 folk came out- families, grandma’s, teen-agers, little kids . Many people just seen the signs or received a flyer and ventured over. The kids loved the bounce house, face painting. Also, the puppets are always a huge hit! Kids and parents alike love them. And these TC brothers do a great job of sharing Jesus with these puppets. Great job.
A big thanks to Penny Goossen and her team from West Side Worship Center. They have a clothing pantry at their church and they brought several tables of clothing to give away to be a blessing to the community. Great job!
Also, thank you to Twila and her husband David Resutko and all the music team of Fresh Fire Shofar for bringing out their sound system and ministering in music. You all were a blessing.
We served 350 hotdog meals and lots of cold water and pink lemonade. Also it was a fun time to give out several gift cards to area restaurants and business.
We had many good one on one encounters as we testified and witnessed the Gospel of Christ. We were blessed to give out over fifty new Bibles along with over a hundred tracts. One man named Gene was touched by the Holy Spirit as he was prayed over for deliverance to his addictions. There was a testimony of relationship that was reconciled as the Lord was moving on hearts. One lady who lived a couple blocks away came and testified how she heard the music and message and was so encouraged. In fact, many of the neighborhood folk were so thankful and commented on what a blessing it was.
Another highlight of the block party is to gather everyone around the sound system as we bring forth the Word of God to the community. Brother Josh Eaton brought a timely Word to community sharing Christ and the Gospel message. Josh and his wife Arlette live right on the adjacent lot where we had the outreach. So he was literally speaking to his neighbors and breaking down the simple truth of Jesus to them. Praise God. Many people were touched and a few came forward for prayer and ministry. It was powerful!
