Revival!

I just wanted to share with you what God is doing in our church! It's so exciting to see a home missions church grow and have revival - and it's happening here. On our New Year's Eve service an Elder in our church stood up and said he felt in the Holy Ghost this would be a year of souls. And it has been. God has been adding people to the church. He is drawing people and bringing them through the doors. Outreach, Bible studies, and lots of prayer is the key! You just have to keep on doing that and God will give the increase. We've had people get the Holy Ghost and get baptized recently, and it's such a joy to see! I also feel like our youth group is about to grow! I have been the only teenage girl for way too long! I have contacts - one Bible study set up, and a girl from work who I believe is hungry for God. I've had a lot of contacts at work. The guy who is going to be painting and doing art work in the store has been really searching for more and is so hungry for God. There are more. Please pray for our church! God is doing so much and it's a wonderful thing. When wonderful things like that happen the devil gets mad, so we do need prayer! Thank you!!

YES, God is sending revival to our small-but-growing church as well. Praise God, He is faithful. We have first time visitors almost every Sunday and God has been filling people with the Holy Ghost! I'm not the only teenage girl anymore WOOHOO! God will finish what he started. We'll pray!

Great and encouraging post Jen, love you lots!

Sis. Kendrick - Thank you so much for the prayers, they are much appreciated. Especially with all you have going on! Our little church has been praying for your father-in-law and family. :)

Hanna - Our churches must be kindred spirits as well! Hee hee! It's so cool to see what God is doing in your church too. The youth in this world are tired of sin and things that destroy. We can reach them! Thanks for praying, I'm praying for your church too!

Sis. McElhaney - Thank you so much for the encouraging comment, and of course the prayers. It brings comfort knowing there are people all over the place that are praying.
