I wanted to give you a few highlights of our outreach yesterday in Lake Village Arkansas. Through the Ministry Vehicle of Convoy of Hope - Michael Clark, Gary Lively, Andrew Dodson and myself spent the day in Arkansas yesterday helping set up to distribute food to over 300 cars that drove through the lines at a local high school there in Lake Village.
Many cars had multiple people in them so my best guess is that we served probably around 700 people perishable food yesterday along with Milk.
After the people received their groceries there were 4 lines formed and at the end of each line is where the Gospel was shared, people were prayed for, Bibles were handed out and a book called "Shelter in the Storm" was provided. As always Curtis Wilson gave oversight and vision to this outreach. The overseer of the event. The one who has made relationship connections with many churches in the Delta for the past 20 years
Gary Lively - Michael Clark - Andrew Dodson and I each offered prayers and shared the Gospel with the many families that drove through the lines. In these car lines many were touched by the POWER and GLORY of our GOD. One instance a lady shook under the power of God after being told JESUS. In another instance a young 12-year-old girl had never prayed for anyone. As a matter of fact, I was told that her family was not even in church. A local volunteer asked us to pray for her family after the event.
What took place was so FUN to watch. I think the 12-year-old girls name was Lyrie. She simply shadowed me toward the last hour of the event and I asked her... "Have you ever prayed for anyone?" Do you know how to pray?" She said she had just learned how to say a prayer to bless her food... God is Good God is Great prayer...
I'm thinking this is going to be really interesting to see when she begins seeing the Lord heal folks. So, she stuck by my side for the last portion of the prayer line. After watching me pray for a few folks I was ready to throw her in the RIVER!!! The prayer opportunity moment that changed her outlook on prayer was when an African American lady drove up too, she and I. I asked the lady if she had any prayer needs. The lady said "YES". I'm scheduled to have surgery on my left shoulder. I'm in excruciating pain. So, I asked the lady if the young 12-year-old girl could pray for her. She said yes. So, I simply prompted the young girl to speak a very simple prayer ... "Shoulder be healed, Pain be gone in Jesus Name". I had the young girl place her hand on the shoulder while praying.
Once the child prayed for the adult lady, I then proceeded to interview the lady. Ma'am can you test your arm and see if your pain level is any better. The lady began to move her shoulder in a circular motion. SHE WAS IN SHOCK!!! She began telling us with excitement how ALL OF THE PAIN had left her shoulder. SHE WAS IN DISBELIEF to say the least.
The most beautiful part of this story is that the young girl began taking over each new car that would drive up asking "Are you in pain?" She was rocked. She was literally running to the cars that would try to drive off and flag them down to make sure we prayed for them. She later began praying for folks without me!!!
To say I was FILLED WITH JOY UNSPEAKABLE would be an understatement. This day was marked with many stories like this one. Many people were healed of pain and only Heaven will know the final outcome of the many prayers offered up yesterday.
Another lady according to Michael Clark had a hole in her wrist from an automobile accident. She was healed of pain in her wrist. Michael needs to REPLY ALL on this thread along with Gary Lively if they would like to share any of their own stories from the outreach. I am aware of 6 people who prayed to receive Christ. I had 2 people that were almost persuaded but rejected the gospel. Please pray that they RECONSIDER JESUS!!!
