Giving 'em Heaven in Pittsburgh

Giving 'em Heaven in Pittsburgh

This weekend we had the privilege of Flip and his family visiting and speaking at our church. It was a tremendous blessing and we're very grateful that we were given the opportunity. Special thanks to Pastor Rick for opening his heart and the church to this ministry, and to Pastor Larry and family for hosting the Benham's while they were with us.

We kicked-off this week's city-wide "Truth Tour" ( http://www.facethetruthamerica.com/) on Saturday morning at Planned Parenthood/Women's Health Services, and were joined by pro-lifers from all over the city. More than fifty graphic Malachi and forceps signs lined the sides of Liberty Avenue for blocks on either side of the mill as Ron drove by in the infamous red truck. God gave us favor with the police and broke the spirits of the escorts. Scott and Daniel took shifts leading worship on guitar in front of the mill, and we had a number of saints' sidewalk counseling. We were able to share the gospel with many people who passed by; Flip was like a magnet and Christina and Marcie were able to lay hands on and pray for several people.

Sunday morning Flip preached at Word & Worship Fellowship, and then again on Sunday night about the love of Jesus. It was the kind of word that leaves you saying "ouch and amen", but the truth sets us free and many repented for having grown apathetic and callous to the plight of the lost. I am looking forward to the change in our hearts and the things that God has in store for us as a body. Please pray for us as we move forward.

God Bless You, Run Hard! –Joseph
