Awesome time this past week in the Middle East! Praise the Lord for He is mighty to save!
Pinelake Church, which has multi campuses, had several packing parties at different locations this past weekend. And look how many came out to this Compassion Kits packing party! Wow! Thank you Pinelake Church and your body for coming together to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Many will hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and many story groups will be formed and house churches started from your efforts! Thank you!!!
Several weeks ago, our team started working with a few men that were in the Middle East for work. These men were interested to hear stories from the Bible. Our team encouraged the men to reach out to others around them and start a story group. After a few weeks, these men had a group of men ready to start a story group. Our team told them that a short term team was coming and they would start the story group with a Compassion Kits party. The room was filled with men, on the floor, on the beds, even on the top bunks to listen to what the short term team had to say. This short term team came in and told these men how Jesus Christ has the power to change a life and change lives He did. When the invitation was given, the men excitingly came forward to give all to Jesus. The men were even jumping off the top of the bunks to get on their knees. Praise the Lord that He is mighty to save! Now, these men are celebrating with our team about the changes happening in their lives and how they have turned away from their old way of living. Our team is also working on starting a house church with this new story group.
