The last couple weeks have been hard ones for me personally but God, as always, knows exactly how much I can handle and he never gives me more than I can bear! This past Friday we went back to Tacoma and it was once again amazing to see the doors that God is opening. Friday morning we were able to serve at one of the Tacoma Rescue Mission's family communities. We were able to meet a few people but mostly we were doing practical, physical labor that needed to be done.
That afternoon we spent 2 hours prayer walking the neighborhoods that we will be surveying over the next month. Please be in prayer for the individuals and the families that we will be meeting. Pray that God opens doors that only he can open and that we begin to see lives changed and saved by the gospel!
Friday evening we had another awesome time at Wright Park. The gospel was laid out specifically for multiple people. Becca was able to share the truth with one lady who I believe was a prostitute. It was so sad to see her lifestyle and hear her worldview but it was also amazing to hear Becca share the truth of Jesus with her. We also met a new guy named Sonny who has spent quite a bit of time in prison and is now moving back and forth between living on the streets and living with a buddy of his. I was able to walk him through the "Romans Road" and explain the gospel to him. Unfortunately I think he may have been on something so he didn't seem to be comprehending very well. Please pray for Sonny and others that we met this Friday that God would be softening their hearts.
All that we are doing and all that you are praying for is for the express purpose of seeing lives changed by the gospel. Please pray this week for our first Bible study which we will hold this coming Friday at Wright Park at 6pm. We're excited to see what the Lord does and honestly don't know what to expect. It will be amazing to see what Jesus does!
