Where in the heck am I supposed to begin? I will do my best.
- We finished up the series called, "Moxie" - a study on boldness. We look at having boldness to BE the Church, boldness to COME to God and together, and finished up with boldness to GO after the lost. POWERFUL SERIES!!! Seriously!!! We had people come forward last night, filling out a card to commit to being committed to GOING OUT on their campuses/workplaces/neighborhoods for Jesus.
- We baptized three people last night. We planned on one, prepared for two and dunked three. The last guy didn't plan it and went in his clothes. He went home wet. SO AWESOME!!!!
- I spoke with a man who was watching the service online. While watching it he felt the need to come to the church. So he walked to the church and said that he was supposed to speak with me. So after the worship service, we got a chance to talk. I asked what he was supposed to talk to me about and he said, "I don't know." Honestly, it's a tough thing to go onto the next part of a conversation when the initiator of that conversation doesn't know what we're supposed to talk about. So I asked if he knew Jesus. He said that he had known God all of his life. So I talked to him about the need to make a real decision for Jesus because we aren't born into a relationship with God. I told him that Jesus was the only way, and he said, "If the name for God is Jesus, I'm fine with that." I told him about how there is salvation only through Christ. He proclaimed Christ as his Lord right there. I then prayed over him with James Braum, proclaiming freedom and liberty from those addictions that he was struggling with. WE PRAYED BIG!!!! As he walked away, I stopped and thanked Jesus for the technology that is used at PFB to reach people, and the tech crew that makes it happen. This man came to Jesus because he was watching the service online and felt the need to come to the church. AWESOME!!!
- I had two people come up and tell me that they want to get baptized the next time we have a service (which is the first Wednesday of October if you want to join us).
God is at work. He is on the move and I am blown away. But it's only just begun. The best is yet to come. Thank you for praying.
