Thank you Father God for suiting up and showing up at Bedrock Park in Oroville, California this evening for our first Serving Saturday. We arrived to total insanity with two different groups fighting in the park along the beautiful Feather River. Diane grabbed a handful of popsicles and ran into the crazy stupid telling everyone they needed to cool down. Tracey tried to reason with the unruly guys then he called in Jesus Christ to have his way casting out the evil God was the party crasher! One of the mouthy guys claimed to have a loaded gun so hello 911. The Oroville Police Department came instantly and needless to say, the bad mojo all ran. We honor our officers for making a difference.
We didn’t let spiritual warfare stop the appointment from God. We prayed for peeps and shared the gospel. The glory field is ripe for the harvest. Our dear Terry surprised Tracey with a hand carved rod. What a perfect gift at the right time. Yes, we’re called to messy places with not so pretty peeps. We’re called to love unconditionally. You don’t have to “take over” a park to make a difference. It’s so simple to serve others sharing the love of Christ. Hurt people hurt others. Let them see Jesus in you.
