A Surprising Turn of Events
On November of 2013, 23 teenagers were riveted on Billy Graham’s My Hope America video when we showed it during our weekly game night. One of the teens in that group was Dale, a High School student. He was deeply affected by the video and especially by Anthony’s testimony which he shared immediately afterward.
Two weeks later, Dale was in our living room listening to the gospel as I shared the outreach diagram with him. He had no certainty of eternal life but wanted it… badly. When I asked him if he would like to pray to God and put his faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins and receive the gift of eternal life, he quickly and firmly said YES!
Since then, Dale was been to every church service, joined us for the Faithwalkers conference, and has been actively reading the Bible. But the most unexpected and encouraging thing of all was when Dale generously gave over $700 to help Kristen and Nina finish raising support that they desperately needed to go on a S. Africa mission trip!!!
Only God knew that by sharing the gospel with Dale, He would provide for this mission trip through Dale!
February 9th Tim will speak on Mark 3:13 – 4:34 The Four Parables part 1 ALSO there will be a brief presentation by Val, Kristen and Nina on their mission trip to South Africa!
