Dromore Outreach

21 Aug

“Over 15 years of gospel ministry I have been involved in many weeks osf outreach. This past week ranks as the most encouraging week that I have experienced in such work” Rev. David McCullough 

Here are thirteen reasons Dad gave after the week to be encouraged and give thanks to God:

1. Seeing the Lord at work – stirring up workers, equiping men, women and children to serve Him, burdening more and more to pray.

2. Over 40 adults were involved in some way in our efforts to make contact with the community that we live in.

3. An increasing number came to pray.

4. Hearing some of the men of the church explain the gospel so clearly in teaching at the clubs.

5. Seeing members of our church family take on new challenges in your service for Jesus.

6. Seeing God’s people work alongside one another with one aim, to glorify God in making others glad in the gospel.

7. Watching about 20 or so little children associated with our church having fun together and learning about the Lord Jesus.

8. Having a total of 65 boys attend the Champions League Bible Club and seeing them sit as the gospel is faithfully explained.

9. Having the oppertunity to reach 6000 homes with a copy of the Word Today.

10. Having so many new people across the door of our meeting house for the parents evening on the last night of the Champions League.

11. Seeing our young people with a real passion to tell of Jesus Christ.

12. Listening to the prayers of hearts that long for God to be glorified by the rescuing of sinners.

13. Watching God’s pepole do the little behind the scenes activities that are vital to the smooth running of such a week.

Probably the most well designed leaflet I’ve had the privilege of distributing – In 2 weeks 6,000 copies were given out  by Dromore RPC

Leaflets were given out in Dromore, Hillsborough, Donaghcloney, Gamblestown, Blackskull, Waringstown, Kinallen and Waringsford.

Three simple point to pray for:

1. Pray that the Lord will use the work done for His glory.

2. Pray that some would yet respond to the offer of a Christianity Explored Course.

3. Pray that we would have grace and patience as we sow the seed of the gospel.

“Therefore my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labour is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15 v 58
