His Word Comes Alive

As told by John Barros:

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed. – Luke 4:18

The Lord did all these wonderful things down here today. It was just plain awesome. His timing was perfect and He reached down and pulled three precious ladies out of the pit.
Bradley and I were blessed to have Beth and Melyna serve with us. These two ladies are incredible. They start early here on Fridays and it is the busiest day.

At 7:30, Bryce was dropped off by taxi. She was invited to sit on the wall to wait the half hour before the doors opened. We spoke and went through all the things we have to say. She looked through the “In The Womb” tracts and prayed with us, but when the crowd came she got swept in with them. The people were stampeding the door and would not listen.

After they were settled in the preaching began. Joshua and Mary came during the preaching. She wanted to hurry him in. He stopped and talked, taking the tract and brochure. He went in slowly and after a few minutes all hell broke loose. They went out by the side of the building and did their best effort at “rock em sock em robots”. They eventually calmed down and left.

Into the preaching a while longer, Olga came out. I said “come here, young lady”, and she came out to the walk. She spoke of how God’s Word had driven her out of there. She had been raised in the church and found herself in trouble. She wanted prayer, so Beth and I prayed. I have to tell you this young lady is precious. Beth reached out and had Olga follow her to the CPC. They have been talking today. Olga is 13 weeks pregnant and is so thankful and happy that God followed her all the way there. Olga and Beth are the perfect fit.

Then after preaching the second time, out walks Bryce on the phone to a friend coming over to us, not even remotely looking like the same girl from 7:30 this morning. She was explaining very loudly to her friend how angry the nurse got when she said no and changed her mind. She was peeking at us while she was saying these things with a smile on her face. It was so awesome. We jumped up and were thanking God. Melyna had joined us by then and they hit it off great. Melyna gave her a ride home and they exchanged contact info. She will be going to a CPC on Monday.

Once again the Lord sent the perfect person to be a blessing to her neighbor. It was so beautiful. Today the Lord gave sight to the blind, healed the broken hearted, had the Gospel preached to the poor, and gave liberty to the captives. His Word comes alive down here. God is so good. Please pray for these ladies.
