GPS "God Stories"
Below are several “God Stories” and comments from those participating in the 2009 Pilot:
- From Pastor Michael Pigg, Philadelphia Baptist Church, Stone Mountain Baptist Association… I do believe that the process of distributing gospel literature (coupled with prayer) on the days prior to Easter was the one significant reason for the huge Easter attendance in the life of the Philadelphia Baptist Church. God moved in miraculous ways!
- From a pastor’s perspective, the greatest value of the pilot was to see the congregations of our Association energized and mobilized to connect with the people in their communities.
- From Associate Director of Missions Ed Sena, Lubbock Area Baptist Association… I was moved to tears when I learned that a 94 year old saint took her walker and distributed gospel literature in her neighborhood. In addition, a young mother had her 4 year old assisting her with the hanging of gospel bags at the door. From ages 4 to 94, it brought great joy to our people to be involved in such a simultaneous effort.
- From Paul Eshelman, an Observer of www.FinditHere.com in Corona, California, Inland Empire Baptist Association… I heard of your site on the radio. I peeked in expecting some cult from the enemy. What a wonderful and refreshing thing to see God's most beautiful gift honestly shared. I just wanted to write to thank you and to let you know that I too will pray to our Father through His perfect Lamb for your great successes in this ministry. Thank you so much! Your brother in Christ, Paul.
- From Pastor Brian King, Ezekiel Baptist Church, Moderator, Greater Philadelphia Baptist Association… Our reputation within the community went up. Neighbors commented positively about our presence. A Muslim said that he wanted to work with our church. When introducing ourselves to a neighbor she said enthusiastically, “I know exactly who you are!” Taking the message of “Find It Here” to the streets of Philadelphia has made a lasting impact for some time to come.
- From Bob Hylton, Associational Director of Missions, Greater Philadelphia Baptist Association (In email sent to Dr. Ken Weathersby, Senior Strategist for Evangelism, NAMB)… Dear Ken, Thank you for inviting Philadelphia to participate in the GPS Pilot for 2009. The process has produced tremendous benefits to our work and has helped our churches really pull together around evangelism in the Philadelphia region.
