Five kids turned their lives over to Jesus because a couple of middle school students decided to be bold in their faith and share God with these kids. Thank you Valley Bible Church for coming to Urban Hope Los Angeles and serving God.
Valley Bible Church is in Vista, California and 11 of their students and adults came to Urban Hope Los Angeles. After spending some time together learning how to share Jesus using the FISH method to begin conversations, the group spent most of Saturday in an area of Los Angeles called Boyle Heights. The Valley Bible Church team spread out throughout Hollenbeck Park, worked on starting conversations with people in the park, and then invited them over for food and a kid’s program.
The group cooked hamburgers and hot dogs for about 100 people and then had conversations with the people while they ate. Some of the team helped lead a kid’s program where five elementary age students turned their lives over to the Lord! Praise Jesus for how He transforms lives. Part of the group also went into some homeless encampments along the park’s outer edges and loved on them as well.
What an incredible day it was to watch God open up the eyes of His people as He continues to teach us how we need to live ON MISSION for Him each day. People are all around us and God is placing people in our path each day. It’s time to start FISHing!
