Amanda and I went with three women from Sonrise Church (Amy Hall, Awilda, and Michelle Spieler) to hand out bagels to the homeless and pass out tracts on the Venice Boardwalk...I had prayed the day before...over Venice Beach... The people seemed much more receptive than last time. Amanda remarked that more people seemed open to receive the tracts and fliers, and that’s when I remembered that I had prayed specifically for God to bind the powers of darkness, so they could not interfere with what we were doing. Most of the people selling their wares and trinkets down there are selling occult things, giving psychic readings and fortune-telling, etc...The devil has a hold on that territory, but we were able to go in and spread the "glorious light of the gospel of Jesus Christ" today...We gave out fliers and tracts (even in other languages) to people there between 8:00 and 9:30 this morning. We spoke to the homeless, who took most of the bagels, the joggers and walkers, the ones just having coffee and reading the paper, and the vendors setting up their shops or tables. We are rejoicing in the Lord’s goodness in allowing us to spread the Word and plant the seed of the gospel, and we pray that it has fallen on good ground, and that He will produce His harvest through it.Dorothea HooperLove Lifted Me RecoveryVenice, CA
Dwayna, the CD you sent answered my question (about the Old Covenant and the New Covenant), but it is going to be a blessing beyond measure for a friend. He is very sad right now...He and his wife are coming to dinner today. I will give the CD to him. You are blessed with the Holy Spirit to recall this particular pastor's message to answer my question (about the Passover, comparing the faith of Abraham to the faith of Christians through Jesus), but most of all this will be such a blessing to my friend. Thank you also for the book on Heaven (by Randy Alcorn).Bev WilhelmWitnesses for Jesus MinistriesColorado Springs, CO
