Amazingness ahead!

Margaret, Candy, Chris, Savanna and Taylor  hitting the streets at the Prayer Blitz yesterday

Yesterday was great and I can hardly wait to see what will happen today!  We had a prayer outreach where a bunch of us from Celebration went out into the community to simply knock on doors and say, "We're from Celebration Church and are out in the neighborhood today to just introduce ourselves and ask if there is anything we can pray with you about..."

Amazing things happened!  In one case, Candy and Chris saw a lady walking in a neighborhood with seven children.  Yes, seven!!!  Some were even babies, and she had no stroller or anything.  They found out she not only needed prayer, she also needed food.   Candy invited her to pile everyone in the car and let her take them to Celebration to our recovery service which is also a  food and clothing ministry.  She agreed.  She  and the children came and got a meal and groceries for the week, and most importantly when she heard the message, she responded and accepted Jesus as her Savior!!  Then Candy and Chris drove her and the children home.  They also quickly arranged a ride for the lady and the seven kids today for church.  Right then and there, CC, just grew by eight more people.

That's just ONE story from yesterday -- there were quite a few miraculous ones.  God is so good!  We came back to the church after the community prayer blitz, and shared an Italian meal and testimonies.

There's no telling what will happen TODAY especially as we just let God have HIS way!
