227!












PRAISE GOD! He is using us, all our prayers are being answered! Today 227 people accepted Christ! Through an all day Medical Outreach evangelism event. We preformed 2 adult presentations and 1 kids presentation. By the end of the day the director of the event said that 227 people wrote cards of accepting Christ! So now the director and pastors have ways to contant and reconnect with each one of them! AHH! I almost cannot contain my joy, because that is only 1 of the amazing ways God has worked... Yesterday for a youth outreach night, the spirit was thick, unreal, unlike what your imagining... but thicker than that. People were on their face before God, accpeting Christ, recommiting their lives, in worship and prayer! The people of Colombia really need an awakening of passion and desire for the true relational God! We´ve prayed for healing and salvation with people. We´ve presented the Gospel on rooftops, at a school and in random parks. We´ve shared hugs, money, our stories, God´s love and so many laughs I have a sore throat. Not only are the people of Colombia being greatly effected by God, our team is as well. The spirit has given us boldness to declare to anyone who will listen the freedom in Christ and Christ alone! So many lives are being effected thanks to your financial support, continual prayers and encouragement. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Next time I meet a man lost and confused I will remember these acts of Jesus performed by the Holy Spirit in people of the same human race that I actually know. Who could still be able to doubt?

PRAISE JESUS!!!!!!!! YESSSS!

(Look at all of these loving parents too, just waiting for their babys to come back home and use the change in Colombia to also change Downriver. Wow it's all really, so moving.)

Britt's mom said...

WOW!! Our prayers are being fulfilled right before our very eyes!! Isn't it awesome to be blessed at the same time that you're being a blessing. There's nothing like it. Thank you for being obedient to the direction of the Holy Spirit! He will still continue to work in the lives of all who had the oppurtunity to hear the Word, long after you all are gone. Keep standing strong in Him. We will continue praying for you all.

We love and miss you Britty!!
Mom and Dad
