Park Outreach

There is a local trailer park near here that is known to be full of drugs and alcohol. Our church has had a burden to reach the people here for Christ for a long time and we have done various outreach events there over the past few years, usually with little success.

Last night, we had a musicians and evangelists, Howie & Debbie Campbell come and share in music and a message. Members of our worship team joined in with them to play and we offered free food. It ended up being very successful.

As the team was setting up, it started to pour. The group got together to pray that the weather would clear, and within 15 minutes it stopped a beautiful rainbow came out! The weather stayed beautiful for the rest of the night.

We ended up with about 100 people turning out for the event which was huge compared to what normally happens there.

Free food helped. Here are our refreshment ladies and they are a lot of fun!
