Hello from Montgomery!!
Just a quick note to let you know we are in Montgomery ministering in a housing project which boasts the most murders in the city. We had an amazing day with over 75 children and several adults in attendance at an outdoor VBS. One teenage boy prayed to receive Jesus as his Savior! This is a huge decision in an area where gang membership is essential to survival.
I had the opportunity to sit down with 8 adult women and talk extensively about salvation and questions they have about God. I can not wait to tell you all the details and include some pictures, but tonight I am begging you to pray. These women are coming back in the morning for us to continue our discussions and I know of two who seem on the brink of salvation. Please ask the Lord to prime their hearts to be ready to receive Him. Also pray for a woman I met today struggling with drug addiction. She wants to be free and yet her situation seems so hopeless to her. Please ask the Holy Spirit to give me the words to convince her He can help her be strong enough to say ‘no’ to temptation.
Also pray for our safety. We do not take for granted we are all in Satan’s territory and that he is not at all pleased. We just got word a hotel very close to us was robbed and a patron shot. We also will have to run buses into the housing area in which we are working after dark tomorrow night which has us a little on edge.
Thank you for being faithful prayer warriors…I know your intercession will make a difference!
I will SURE be praying for you guys tonight and in the morning for a shield of protection around all of you and for the Holy Spirit to shine Light into the dark places of the heart and souls of these women.
Lord Jesus, I ask for your blessing and power to be upon Lisa and all of those ministering with her. You have already begun a good work through the love and sacrifice of those serving, but we ask for your protection and peace while they continue to serve. We thank you for the boy who stepped into your kingdom of light this evening. Praise you Jesus! I pray that the Holy Spirit would speak through Lisa and give her all wisdom. Please continue working in the hearts of the women she has shared with, and draw them to yourself. May they see Your power at work in their lives and in Lisa’s life. Lord, nothing is too difficult for you, so we place Lisa, the team, and this mission before you expecting to see miracles. Amen.
Praying for you.
Praying this morning!
