A Blessed Event Reaches More than 1,100
Cherokee » Cherokee Adventist Fellowship Church Plant invited Messiah’s Mansion to Cherokee to share the message of God's love as shown through the Sanctuary. The Messiah’s Mansion group, the church plant team, and several people from the community worked together to assemble the Tabernacle structure in just two days.
The Hardtner Community Building and Fairgrounds provided more than 200 chairs free of charge. The city of Cherokee allowed our church plant to use the community airport field to set up the Tabernacle at no cost. The Cherokee Ministerial Alliance thrift store donated water bottles and our church members provided food. A local radio station invited us to come for an interview about our event. A church member allowed the entire Messiah’s Mansion team of 22 people to stay in their home while their family stayed in a camper in their yard. God used the church and the community to make the Messiah’s Mansion event happen.
Just four weeks before Messiah’s Mansion was to arrive, the airport where the event was scheduled was flooded. Prayers were lifted up for dry weather. The smallest rain would cause additional flooding and the area would not dry out. God answered our prayers for dry ground and nice weather. Prayers for a successful outreach were also answered with over 1,100 people attending the Messiah’s Mansion tour. More than 100 people asked for Bible studies. Our little church plant of six adults and 10 children is very excited about being busy with Bible studies!
The same week the Messiah’s Mansion event concluded, a colporteur team of 20 people came up from Oklahoma Academy and began working in the community. It's been a blessed planting season and we are looking forward to a great harvest!
