All day the Mid-Atlantic region has been receiving torrential rains. Storm warnings, flash floods and nearly 6 inches of rain in the area. Yet with some roads closed and rush hour traffic back-ups our workers went out and brought 185 children to VBS tonight!
My wife was asked to give her testimony of receiving Christ as a little girl. I can say as I stood in the back…not a whisper could be heard…the Lord was working on hearts!
Brother Tom preached another powerful message on faith and shared the testimony of Melvin, a little boy in our church who went to heaven after a three year battle with cancer. Melvin always had a smile on his face. He loved Jesus and told everyone who would listen about his Saviour. The last time I saw Melvin he was in and out of consciousness and was labored in his breathing. He had been given morphine for his pain. I sat beside his bed and whispered in his ear and told him I was there and that we loved him and that Jesus loved him. He opened his eyes and mumbled something only the Lord knows. I will never forget Melvin! I was reminded as I looked across a full auditorium of children that we were reaching the next Melvin! May we never forget what we do…is LIFE & DEATH!
Yes, we had a blast a VBS tonight. The skits, the games, the candy and the singing but there was also a wonderful spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is…there is liberty.
29 young people walked the aisles to receive Christ tonight! I can only say the rain was pouring outside all day but it was raining inside ALL NIGHT!!
Lord, send the rain! We need those showers of blessing!
