The Beginning of Harvest in Richmond

"The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few."

Last week six of us joined other believers from Ireland, Canada, and the United States in Richmond, KY to share the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost.
From prayer, to door-to-door, to kids clubs, to gospel meetings, to car washes, we were privileged to work with zealous believers in telling the Good News, that Christ came into the world to save sinners.

Some highlights of the week were (in no particular order).....
  1. Seeing sinners saved.
  2. Long conversations on door steps.
  3. Being challenged by the the zeal of young people.
  4. Tasting some Southern hospitality. One of the ladies I met at the Corrie Ten Boom drama kindly invited us to her home for dinner. It was a treat to be in a home and not a restraunt for supper. Miss T. served us a simple dinner in an elegant way. After dinner she let Thomas and I play her grand piano for her. She also let us examine old toys from past eras. It was delightful.
  5. Learning new group games...."Meet the Press".
  6. Lunches at Lake Reba kindly provided by Mr. N.
  7. The singing of hymns accompanied by piano, violin, and viola.
  8. Seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
  9. The Lord's Supper. I was reminded of popcorn by the way men, young and old, stood up to share something about the Lord Jesus.
  10. How the Lord used a young woman's fluent knowledge of Spanish to make known the gospel and Biblical truths to R. and his friend.
  11. Being reminded in a powerful way of the value of prayer.

Many, many, many contacts were made. Please pray for the local believers as they have a LOT of follow-up visits and Bible Studies to do.

Next place? Our area. (just not so many people)
