Middle of the week update!

GOD IS DOING AWESOME THINGS!!! :) It's so humbling and amazing to watch God use us... just dirty rotten sinners for His glory! First off praise report and then prayer request...

Praise:

The total numbers for kids enrolled in  5 day clubs from this far.... right around 2,000 kids! How awesome is that?!?!? That's what I call shaking the doors of hell! Also, we were told that all the teams combined there have been around 260 professions of faith!!!!! This is just two days! Only God can do this! We are in the middle of a Mormon ran city... you see them everywhere and everyone just expects you to be a Mormon. Things are about to change though... I just feel it. God is not only stronger than the devil, but He is stronger than any other religion that does not truthfully proclaim the name of Christ!!! Our clubs went great today.... they took tonsssss of flexibility, but it all went great!

On to prayer request though..... Please guys and gals.... pray. We are in a tough battle and even though we are in the United States we are still running into many road blocks with cities and city officials. Please pray for stamina as we are teaching literally thousands of kids and are all exhausted. Besides that though... Pray for these kids and that they will be open to the Gospel. I cant tell you the heart ache of seeing these kids. Yes, I work with youth all the time that comes from bad homes, but this is worse than normal. One precious girl came to club yesterday and i noticed her face was all bruised and cut. I didn't ask b/c honestly i wasn't sure i could handle hearing what she would probably tell me happened. She asked later in the club though if she had to sing b/c her face hurt to bad to sing.... All I know to pray is that God gives her comfort. This is just one case.... there are plenty to tell. My God is the Father to the Fatherless and the shelter for those who are hurting. Pray that God opens doors and that we will also be able to talk to the parents! One lady brought her son today and as i was talking to her I asked if she went to church somewhere and she said no that they had just moved there and that they were looking for a church. To any missionary that is an automatic "CHA-CHING!" she continued on though to tell me that she guessed she should join the LDS church bc everyone else had. i begged her to consider the church we were working with and beg God to lead her there! Please pray with me! This is a major decision this lady has.

Well its late and it wont be long until we are up and at it again! Thanks for the prayers! :)

Love,
JEN

Thats wonderful, God is working miracles, Hallelujah! :D
Praying that the kids will have soft, teachable and open hearts, and that you all will have the energy to keep going.
Hope the lady comes to the church, and the girls face heals up.

Blessings,
