I was able to assist with the engage week in Janesville this spring. It was a special treat, as the person I stayed with was one of the members of my reviveSCHOOL discussion group. We enjoyed getting to know one another on a personal level as we had only met over a computer monitor.
One of my favorite memories was giving away left over pizzas from our evening meal. Three of us went to an apartment complex and encountered a group of gentlemen; only two stayed after we asked how we could pray for them. The Lord healed both of their backs to prove how faithful He is and how much they are loved by the King of Kings! After their encounter with Him, they gave their lives to Him!

I participated in Greene Co. and Seneca Co. While I was in Greene Co. one of my teams was able to share the Gospel to an entire little league baseball team. Each player including the coach raised their hand saying they wanted to make Christ the Lord of their lives! Talk about a home run! During one of the evening services in Seneca Co., I was asked to assist with reviveKIDS. I was elated because three little girls came as a result of our invitation during one of our encounters earlier that afternoon. I also got to be a part of a young man surrendering his heart to Jesus!

When I am not traveling, I assist with reviveTUPELO. We still engage in monthly outreaches. We have also done some scouting in Yazoo City. The most exciting news is we just got a mobile baptismal! We are anxious to use it during our next outreach!

I have had the privilege of leading a women’s discussion group every week for the past two years to share about what we’ve learned as we go deeper into His Word. We are excited about graduation this January!

During Englewood, one of my teams and I headed down Main Street. I shared that my knee began hurting and right in front of us was a sign that said “Got Pain? Come Inside.” We knew we were where we needed to be. We walked into the store and asked if anyone had knee pain. The three customers said no, but the gentleman behind the counter said, “doesn’t everyone?” We prayed for his healing and he reported the intensity of the pain decreased as a result of prayer. We went through the Bible and wristband with him. When we asked if there was anything preventing him from praying, he said “no.” We asked if he knew what that meant, he said “yes.” He prayed right there and the angels rejoiced over him accepting Christ as his Savior! He then disclosed he tried to end his life a few years ago and he felt he had nothing to live for. It was as if he was waiting on the Lord to show him his purpose.

One afternoon in Jim Ned, my team ended up on a gravel road and saw a couple looking for their lost dog. It was amazing how the Lord used nature to speak to her. As we helped them look for their dog, she shared a part of her testimony with me. She explained she lost custody of her children due to her drug use. She said she was discouraged because she had two years clean and relapsed. I noticed a grasshopper jump out in front of us. I shared I believe the Lord wanted her to know He is going to restore the years the locusts have eaten. As we got back to the car, we prayed. A gust of wind blew as we asked for peace. I was able to encourage her to breath in His peace and exhale all fear, worry, and anxiety. I stated the Lord wants to carry her burdens for her. Just as I spoke those words, a donkey began braying! It was beautiful because it gave us the opportunity to explain donkeys are known burden bearers, Jesus was carried in on a donkey, and how His yoke is easy if she would release her burdens. She and her boyfriend come that evening for dinner and for Sunday service!
