    Last night Theresa, Amanda, and I went to visit families who allowed their children to attend VBS in July. We went to the home of C & B. We were invited into the home and had a great visit. Both of them had Roman Catholic backgrounds but were no longer regularly attending. Their children were invited by friends who attend Calvary Chapel. Both were eager to hear the Gospel and had many questions, so we spent over an hour doing just that, sharing the Gospel and answering questions. We have an open door to return with more materials. Please pray about this visit.

    Last night Matt, Theresa, and I visited in the home of a woman who allowed her 3 children to come to VBS this year. We attempted to visit her last week, but she was not home, so we made an appointment for last night.  It was a really good visit. Her background was a longtime Methodist. She did not have a clear understanding of what the Bible taught on how to receive eteranl life, but she was interested and willing to listen to us. We were able to share the love of Christ and share the gospel with her. She said it was a lot of information and would be thinking about it. We invited her to the August 26th Greg Laurie Harvest America that Calvary Chapel in Lake Villa is hosting and we thanked her for allowing us to visit her inside of her home. Please pray for this family.

    I asked the diagnostic questions. Theresa shared Grace, Man, and God. Then I shared Christ. We all gave our testimonies and clarified a few things, and then I eventually shared Faith. Matt did some clarifying as well. While a bit disjointed at times, it was a good visit and we are digesting what we did well and what we could have done better. Either way, God is in control and is glorified when we share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

    Matt, Theresa, and I went out. We got a late start because Matt had to work late. We visited a family who had come to VBS. The mom was not home. The children were being watched by a neighbor named Ben. We spoke with Ben for about 20 minutes. He goes to CLCBC. He mentioned that while he is a beleiver, he does not witness much and that he had not witnessed to his neighbor. We will make another attempt next week. After that we went over the the apartments to check on the many people we had witnessed to there. D & T & J were outside. They were polite, but not interested in having anymore spiritual conversations. We knocked on a door and also met a man in the hallway whom we gave a gospel tract to and some other information. The evening was short and uneventful from a human perspective, but we were faithful. I am sure God can use an hour of faithfulness like some fishes and loaves.  Praise His name. Amen.
