Watching God at Work

Jun 10, 2015  |     |   General

     Every night of the year, Open Door Mission holds a largely volunteer-run chapel service, open to all who wish to attend.  There are nights when I am called upon to fill in for chapel, and I see this as a gift.
     One night, I shared about Acts 16 when the Philippian jailer asked the Apostle Paul, “What must I do to be saved.”  Just like the jailer who received Christ, Tim came up after the message and asked the same question.  We talked and he prayed to receive Christ.  Pray for his growth in Christ.
     Another night after chapel, a man staying in the Garland Thompson Men’s Center came up to me.  He told me his story.  We talked, and God gave me the right words to share with him.  He decided to pray and ask Jesus to be his Savior. This is nothing short of a miracle—hallelujah!  Pray also for Harry, that he would grow in his faith in Christ.  I encouraged him to consider the New Life Recovery Program. 
     Join me in praising God for His grace at work among the guests at Open Door Mission.  And whenever you think about our men, women, and children, pray for more interventions of His Spirit to inspire HOPE for lasting change!
