My team came to help three churches with community outreach and to engage the community by serving them and showing hospitality. These are simple concepts—just part of being a follower of Christ—yet they are extremely effective in sharing the gospel and showing Christ's love.
Countless people came through the church during the week, most of whom had never stepped foot in a Christian church before. We had countless spiritual conversations
This all led up to a child's day camp and a barbecue. At the child's camp, we were expecting around 30 to 40 kids, and at the barbecue, we were praying for 200 to attend. By the end of the day, there were about 150 children at the camp and more 400 at the barbecue. God showed his faithfulness, the power of prayer, and how it truly is the kindness of God that leads us to repentance and salvation.
Pray that the churches of St. Stephens, Hammersmith and Southall continue their outreach with the community. Pray that the relationships that formed made continue to grow by the Holy Spirit.
