The following testimony took place this past summer (July 2013) in the lower 8th ward of New Orleans. This neighborhood has one of the highest crime rates in the country and homicides take place on a regular basis every time we work the streets sharing the Gospel. We work closely with Pastor Marc Smith and his wife Angie, of Abiding Temple, when we take a team to this neighborhood. This is an account of how the Lord wants to use His people to rescue those perishing in the most violent neighborhoods of our nation. He is looking for willing vessels who are ready to listen to His voice and obey His Word.
One of my favorite things to do is what I have referred to as “drive by witnessing.” This is when you get in a vehicle with some like minded believers and drive around and look for someone to talk to about Jesus Christ. It is a lot of fun as many of these people are generally truly surprised by the brief encounter with the Gospel.
