God’s Spirit is Stirring Hearts
Shreveport, La. » Pastors usually make their evangelism plans a year ahead, so there was no way to know what the world would be like in September 2017 when David Farmer originally drew up plans for an evangelistic series at the Shreveport First Seventh-day Adventist Church. It had been nine months since he picked out the brochures with the picture of a hurricane in the background! Do we believe God’s Hand is in everything we do and plan for Him?
Shreveport First Church has a large, accommodating fellowship hall with tables and chairs for a good seminar study. But there were so many attending the meetings the first two nights that they ran out of room and some of the people had to leave. The third night they moved into the sanctuary and by the fourth night they were running out of materials and had to order more from the ABC. People have been asking questions and are very interested in finding answers that will help them understand what is happening in the world around us.
Opening night focused on “What Does the Bible Say” using Matthew 24 and Jesus’ words about the end of the world. Approximately 75 to 100 people were interested and engaged in the studies.
As this report has been sent at the end of September, we will let you know what happens at the end of these meetings, but whatever happens in the Shreveport First Church, the Holy Spirit has stirred up the hearts of people who are hungry for the Word; those who want to know what is happening and what is going to happen. We have the truth for this time. Let us invite, tell, and preach the Word, for Jesus is coming!
