Making Disciples

We had an amazing time with the mobile medical team that was here. They saw hundreds of people over the 4 days that they were at our church. Our pastor also reported that 100 people gave their lives to Christ! This Saturday the congregation is going out to visit and pray with them. After all, it is not the number of conversions that count. What counts is that the people are discipled afterward and brought into a deeper relationship with God. This is made clear in Matthew 28:18-20 when Jesus says:

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make DISCIPLES of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Please pray that as we visit the people that they will be open to the instruction of the Word and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
