There is a video I love from Francis Chan filmed in 2006. It starts out with Francis on a balance beam. The video is an analogy of how many Christians are so afraid of life that they can miss God . It always challenges me & reminds me that God is a God of challenges. ( Click here to see the video) Many times He will allow us to be pushed beyond what we thought we were capable of to show us that He is the capable of getting us through and providing for us. Some people get so afraid of stepping out of the box , that they miss some amazing things God has in store for them.
That is why I want to challenge you to go on one of our mission trips. I would even challenge you to go one of our more unreached places. God is working in crazy ways around the world. Like the team in Africa that saw a Muslim man come to Christ. The Muslim has a dream about Jesus and went and sought out our team who shared the gospel with him. He accepted Christ right there.
Or like the rough motorcycle rider on the Indian Reservation who followed one of our guys driving a van for 45 minutes. When our guy stopped he pulled up to the driver’s side window and asked, ” Do you believe what it says on the back of your van.” Of course our guy had no idea what was on the back since he was driving a van of the church we were doing the mission trip with. The back of the van said ” Jesus Saves”.
The rider said ” I have been trying to find someone for 12 years who could tell me how Jesus saves.” Our guy share the gospel and the rider accepted Christ on the side of the road!
Don’t miss out . See what God is up to around the world.
You can find some of our trips right here.
Can you help us get the word out ? Each year our students do a project to where they pack over 2000 boxes of groceries to give away. This year we are even upping it by 200 boxes to over 2600 boxes of food.
Then on the Saturday before Easter we give the boxes out to those who have a need. But the recipients would need to call in to reserve a box.
Here is how you can help. We will have flyers at each of the welcome desks at the Hampton Campus and the event center at Harbour View, that look like this one to your left. If you can grab those to take those into the community that would be a huge help. Grab as many as you thing you can hand out. Some good places to hand them out would be: (Of course ask first, but most have been pretty nice about it)
- Apartment complexes
- Thrift stores
- Food bank
People do need to register by phone. Thank you so much for your help. If there are any questions please let us know by writing to KmcLemore@libertylive.com
