EE 7/3/12

    Clearly it is a hot week, but that did not stop Matt and I from going out and seeking people to share the love of Christ with. Because it was Matt and I, two men, we did not think it prudent to be knocking on doors, so we went to public areas. We went to Lehman Park in Lake Villa and met a woman named Sharon. She was enjoying the beach and watching her son. She is a believer. We had a good 20 minute chat with her and moved on. We then drove to the hot dog store and purchased some sodas. We gave a gospel tract to the man behind the counter. We talked with a man named Ben who was waiting for his order. He attends the Chapel, but is looking for something a bit closer because he lives in Trevor. WI. We gave some brochures to both Sharon and Ben.

    Because Theresa was unable to come out Matt and I were able to spend extra time talking about our lives. The goal of EE is to make disciples through evangelism training. It is not just evangelism. It is being together while we seek opportunities to share the love of Christ. The mission statement of Evangelism Explosion is: “To glorify God by equipping local churches worldwide to multiply through evangelism, discipleship, and healthy growth”. Getting to know others in the body of Christ while doing evangelism, praying together, sharing one another’s burdens, studying the Word of God, etc… is Healthy Growth.

    Pray for Matt, Theresa, and I as we continue to build a witnessing ministry at Calvary Chapel in Lake Villa. Pray for Sharon and Ben that the Lord would guide them.
