This Saturday, the 28 students from my Practical Evangelism class, together with a host of doctors, orthodontists, and stylists are planning a targeted evangelistic outreach to the community of Oxcum, Yucatán. In this town known for problems with drug addiction and alcoholism, the class elected to assist Ruben Sanguino, the leader of the Assemblies of God mission, as he looks to bring tangible proof of God’s love to his community.
Starting at 9:00 AM we will be setting up a social outreach designed to bring medical and dental attention as well as address hygiene concerns. Following the outreach the people will be given the opportunity to respond to God’s love through evangelistic services that will be held on the site in the evening.
Pray with us won’t you?
- Pray for good weather. We are in the middle of the rainy season, and rain could suspend the event or limit the number of people that we would able to impact.
- Pray for unity among the students and volunteers that will be participating in the event. May they see the love of God in us in the way we interact with one another on site.
- Pray for those who will attend, that even now they would begin to sense the need in their hearts.
- Pray finally that we all will be sensitive to what God would have us do, before, during, and following the event.
