Dear reviveASHEVILLE Friends,
Today during LOTS (Love on the Streets), I was sharing Jesus downtown and ran into a friend, CW Webster, who I met several weeks ago. The day I met him his life was a mess. That same day he recommitted his life to Christ, and now he is alive in his walk with Jesus and sharing His word with others. HE gave me a big hug and thanked us for sharing Jesus' love on the streets of our city.
Wow! These are exciting times in Asheville. On Thursday a good sized group gathered downtown in Pack Square as Mayor Terry Bellamy and others shared their hearts about what God is doing in our city and lots of prayers were lifted to the throne. I was able to lead in prayer at our local National Day of Prayer event in Woodfin. It was such a privilege to pray as communities gathered to pray for our government, families, churches and schools.
Several of us from Asheville had an amazing time at reviveSEATTLE last month. We were able to sow into that large city and bring some fresh flames of revival to the churches there while we saw more than 70 people start a new relationship with Jesus while we were there.
I want everyone to know that engageASHEVILLE is coming up Sept. 5-7 here in Asheville. Kyle, John and the whole reviveASHEVILLE team will be returning to our city for a fresh encounter with God and our city. Please mark your calendars now to join us as we hit the streets to share Christ's love with as many people as we can!
Prayer is the key to all revival and transformation. Prayer and obedience bring the power and blessings of the Kingdom of God to our daily lives. Please join us this coming Tuesday May 7, at 7 pm for our monthly reviveASHEVILLE Prayer at the YMI Cultural Center in downtown Asheville. The address is 39 S Market St Asheville, NC 28801. We will be meeting in the conference room on the third floor.
Let's be faithful in prayer and in obedience, sharing Jesus with others as we live our daily lives. I want us to bathe this growing spiritual momentum in prayer until God rends the heavens and sends His blessings down upon our region. Come join us as we pray!
