Invited our neighbor to come to church, and to bagels and breakfast. She came and was blessed. Since then we have been in conversation about prayer, and the power of prayer. She is seeking employment and it keeps us connected as I share my prayer for her daily. She is not a believer and is seeking for more in her life.
I went on a walk with my 91 year old atheist neighbor on Tuesday. I sent him Hebrews 11 via email and a sermon message I had written because he was interested to read it. He asked good questions and said he had never really read the Bible before. I shared quite a bit about my struggles of faith and doubt, and he was definitely listening! Please pray for him.
I was able to write letters to each of my 19 students. It is a public school so I can’t actually say “Jesus.” But in those letters I spoke life over their innocent hearts. These past 8 weeks, I’ve seen the lies that they believe about themselves. In my letters, I spoke God’s truth over these lies.
While taking a walk in town, my husband and I met an acquaintance walking her dog. We stopped to chat. I had prior knowledge that she had recently been diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s. Asking how she was doing, I could see in her eyes a sense of despair, but bravely sounding optimistic. I asked her if we could pray with her for a blessing. She agreed. At the end, she was smiling and thankful for us.
Visited a mosque with students for an ATS class. We asked a woman to explain the sermon to us. She did and also told us some of her story, including how her 20-year-old son had died and she tried to do lots of good deeds. We mostly listened but also blessed her and have prayed for her since.
A conversation about Jesus and what the Gospel means–truly means–versus what TV illustrates. This was someone who was asking me a question about Jesus. This was a teacher I work with from time to time. She asked how Jesus is different from every other religion and I was able to share what He has done for us.
Met with a couple that is entering into a new season of life and is encountering challenges and joys. We were mutually encouraged.
We had a painter come over to give a bid on a very small job, and he ended up getting a contract for a much larger job because we had realized we needed help with something else. We thanked him for responding to the small job when others hadn’t. He told us he worked for the King of Kings and wanted us to know what God looked like because we had seen his child. Of course a “party” followed we had such a nice time of prayer before he left.
Spoke to a friend in GA about going to church with my family and how it has brought my family closer together.
We were able to pay for the Laundry of 33 families at our Loads of Love event. Each one of these was a conversation of Faith.
September 10, 2017 – September 9th, 2018
We have set a goal as a church to have 1,000 conversations of faith over the course of this next year. Here are ways you can participate in this goal:
· Pray for or bless someone you come in contact with.
· If you have a relationship with Christ, have a conversation about your faith with someone who currently does not consider themselves a believer.
· If you have a relationship with Christ, have a conversation about your faith with someone else who also has a relationship with Christ in which you encourage one another.
· Invite someone to a church service or some other church activity.
· If you don’t consider yourself a believer yet, have a conversation about faith with someone who does.
