    Lance, Theresa, and Dave went out on visitation. We checked on a family who had been coming over the past few years. They were having dinner at the time, so we made an appointment for the future. After that we decided to knock on some apartment doors. The first building we stopped at was open. The first apt. that answered our knock was an older man who was not intererested. I knew we were in the right place but felt a need to stop and pray, so we did. After that we knocked on another door and a woman named K opened the door. Although she did not invite us in, we had a pleasent talk. I was able to share the mission of the church, gave her some church info and a gospel tract, and we were able to ask her the diagnostic questions. She said she has been thinking about church and said she would visit. Theresa prayed for K before we left, which K appreciated. Please pray for K.

    The next person we talked to was D1. He was a young man who said he attended St. Peters in Antioch. He “had his own thing going” and did not want to talk to us. After that we met a woman in the hallway named Dl. She said she was in a hurry to get to bed so she could wake up at 3:30 am. Then she promptly spent 15 minutes talking to us. She is also a Roman Catholic. While we did not get into a serious spiritual discussion we did discuss her life and her needs and we prayed for her. After she went upstairs a door opened and a young man named D2 came out. He is a Christian and a single parent. He was very friendly. He attends another local evangelical church but has not been able to attend on Sundays because he has been working every Sunday. He asked about CCLV’s Wednesday evening service and is planning on visiting. We encouraged him to listen to the church’s radio station. We prayed for him as well.

    It was a good evening. God answered our prayer to supply us with people to speak with on a cold Nov. evening. Praise God. Please pray that K, Dl, and D2 visit CCLV in the near future.

ps; on a future note please pray we could get some door hangers. Many apts had nobody home and we could have left some church info and gospel tracts if we had some hangers.

    Even though last evening was an election night our team still went out to share the love of Christ. Theresa, Dave, and I attempted a visit to a home that was referred to us by a memeber of CCLV. When we arrived nobody was home, so we visited the memeber to make sure we went to the right home. We did. She gave us another home in the neighborhood to visit. When we stepped back outside into the cold rainy night I noticed a light was on at the original home, so we went back and knocked on the door. A woman named N opened the door and invited us in.

    All of us participated in the Introduction. I asked N the diagnostic questions. The first one she said she was “pretty sure” she would go to heaven when she died. The second question she said she was trusing in “Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior”. Praise God. Upon hearing her answers that led me to believe she merely needed an assurance of her salvation and proceeded to share the gospel. I shared Grace, briefly shared Man, and then shared God. Before I started Christ I asked, “who do you say Jesus is”? N said that Jesus was a man. As I probed further we found out that N did not know that Jesus was God and did not have an understanding of the Trinity. She was a little unsure about why Jesus had to die. Basically, N needed to do some study of basic Bible doctrine. She has been attending a Bible Church for 2 years. We continued on and shared Christ and Faith. I did not press her for a decision because she needed to take care of her children and because I will see her again on Saturday. We are giving her some furniture. Please pray for N and her continued growth in Christ. God is reaching out to her and she is reaching back. Praise God.
