God is in us each and every day, he is perfect in us and he wants us to follow him. I got a chance to experience a little bit of that when I talked with the kids that we ministered on Thursday, what struck me is when we first went the site on Irvington it was horrible, there was anger, fighting and just lashing out. Once we started our meeting, it got dead quiet, it was like God was in the midst putting these kids into place. Even though these kids were here I know that there are others in this world who don’t know God or who don’t want to.
As Pastor Scott started to preach I saw a woman and her kids come around the corner and when she heard what was been said she told her kids “no let’s go”. It hurt my heart to see that family just walk away like that from hearing God's Word, but that’s how it is in this world. Some people don’t want to hear the word of God preached. We need to keep praying for those people that need it the most. That is what God calls us to do; to seek and to save the lost; it’s our mission on earth. If we don’t share our faith, how do people know? They won’t understand and they can’t be saved. Think about that as you are praying to God today.
Also there is one other thing I saw and it happens a lot in the inner city places; it is that some kids come from broken families like the girl a met named Katelyn, after I had prayed for other girls she came and tell me “I live with my aunt because my mom is in jail,” this little girl is 6 or 7 years old. No child should have to go through that, they should be home with their mom and dad and enjoying their time with them. That’s not what happens in the inner city, you have kids living with aunts, uncles, brothers, grandparents you name it and it’s all because their parents aren’t there to support them.
We come out here as missionaries to share the Gospel and to preach it to these kids because they may not get it at home, and if you see them in person you can tell. Once they know about Jesus they keep coming, that’s why we do what we do, because we take the time, 3 days a weeks and 3 hours on Saturday to preach the Gospel, this is their chance to hear the Word. These kids’ lives that we minister they see you letting them know about God, and that’s something they will remember and take with them for the rest of their lives.
