It is with great joy and excitement
that we write to you. The
November Thanksgiving Food
Outreach was a success thanks
to the saving work of Jesus!
Let me explain. Over the last 10
years of doing outreach we
typically see 1 to 2% of the people engaged with a full gospel presentation come to Christ. In other words, usually one or two per hundred people accept salvation.
This outreach was special. We had a plan we felt was from the Holy Spirit. We identified 75 at risk families in the Grandview and south Kansas City area. They filled out an application for a week’s worth of groceries. We explained that the gift of food was from JESUS and given by local Christians on His behalf. Some people would not accept a gift from Jesus and decided not to participate.
We explained that when we dropped of the basket we would need an hour of their time to explain the programs offered in the local area and at local churches. We also told them
that we would like to share what Jesus has done for us. We then set up an hour long meeting on Saturday, November 18th between the hours of 12:30 and 4:30pm.
We went shopping on Friday November 17th with eight people and a very long shopping list. We assembled the baskets on Saturday morning from 9am to Noon. We left at 12:20 with a belief that God was going to have His way.
NOW FOR THE REMARKABLE RESULTS!
Spoke with 186 People,
Prayed with 186 People
Gave out 118 Bibles
Had 10 people receive
14 people were healed on
43 People were filled with
the Holy Spirit
Which is an extraordinary 32%!
We have never seen this in our 10 years of doing outreach.
God is on the move!!!
19 Saved in One House!
The team of three included Fawn, Isaac and the Holy Spirit. They pulled up to a yard of a very run down and tattered house with kiddos outside and more kiddos playing inside. The family was incredibly grateful for the food and laundry detergent.
Fawn said, “We are here because of Jesus Christ and to share the message about who He is and find out where everyone is with the Lord.” The Mama of the group immediately sent a child off to get Edward, her 18 year old son. Isaac was talking to Dad and
discovered that he had led him to the Lord about a year ago.
Edward came up, a tall kid with a rhinestone gun necklace. He walked straight to Fawn and put his hands in hers. The Holy Spirit started speaking to her and she began prophesying who Edward is and what God has called him to. The Lord showed her that other kids look up to him and it was time for him to make the decision for life and to choose heaven over hell. The whole time he was captivated by the Holy Spirit as were the other 18 people, down to the littlest child.
Fawn told him that today was a divine appointment because God loves him. Then she asked the all-important question, “Are you ready to commit and give your life to the Lord?” He was!
As she led him in the prayer, the rest of the room prayed as well!
They all knew they wanted to get right with God to have Him as Savior and Lord. Then she taught them about the Holy Spirit, they all prayed and the Holy Spirit washed over them. Edward was so overwhelmed with God’s presence that all he could say was, “I just feel so different. I feel such peace.”
The room erupted in rejoicing and shouts of hallelujah!
Right away, Fawn and Isaac led the group into practicing their new faith as they prayed over Edward’s eye infection and prayed for Grandpa who had lost a child. Edward’s eye was healed!
Fawn said afterwards, “The family was SO hungry and God showed up. It was one of those things that we stepped into what God was going to do. All the glory to God!”
