Break My Heart For What Breaks Yours!

Just a little update--My husband and I had the privilege of taking our ten men at Renewal Ranch to the revival at Summit last night. Although we hadn't attended until last night, evidently from what we heard from others, God moved in a very different way.

God seemed to lay burdens of prayer upon our hearts for the lost people of central Arkansas--and the main thrust it seemed was "break my heart for what breaks yours." And not just lost people but the hurting, the down and out, the widows and orphans--God wants us to hurt for the people He hurts for--to take up the mantle of prayer for them--not only this but to give of our time and our resources.

At one point our pastor asked the men of Renewal Ranch to come down front--the congregation came in great numbers to lay hands on and pray for our men--there was a season of incredible prayer for them.

In another part of our church there were hundreds of youth having their own worship service. We spent time praying for the salvation of any there who did not know Christ.

We met for a couple of hours--people were still coming down front to share scripture and prayer burdens--but our pastor felt that we were to close, go home and fall on our knees before God--we closed--many stayed and were praying, talking, fellowshipping--after about 15 minutes or so, the pastor said, "Come on back down front--we have someone who wants to be baptized."

I will try to have video up later today of this baptism--it was great!

We are going "night by night"--if our pastor thinks that God is moving in a way that we should continue to have services--so, we are having service tonight.

As soon as the service was over, one of our RR guys came up to me and said, "Thank you for bringing us. I want to come back tomorrow night." That was also the sentiment of all the guys. They were overwhelmed with the love and support shown to them.

So the guys invited us up to the ranch to eat dinner with them and then we will drive back down to Little Rock for services, and back up to Conway to take them home and back to Little Rock--what an awesome privilege!!

To God be the glory, great things He has done!
