People in El Paso asking ‘What’s Missing Texas?’


labordayblogDuring the long Labor Day weekend, Texas Baptists were sharing  the good news of Christ with people throughout El Paso.

A group of River Ministry leaders from both sides of the Rio Grande distributed about 1,900 Texas Hope 2010 multimedia gospel CDs in the city. The BSM at UTEP distributed more than 2,000 of the multimedia CDs during a welcome back musical event called “Minerpalooza.”

Many of the people who received the material seemed to be interested in the question posed on the CD cover — What’s Missing Texas?. They read through the cover — a gospel track in itself and carried it away with them, hopefully to examine its contents more fully in their computers.

The interactions provided an opportunity for the students and River Ministry volunteers to prayer with people and share information about local churches.

The next day, it appears the distribution already was having some impact. A woman brought her small children to church for the first time. When she came to Southwest Cowboy Church, it was the first time she’d been in a church in years.

She walked in and shared she’d received the CD. She’d known she needed to walk closer with God. The CD was a sign that the time for that is now.

As the effort to share the hope of Christ with every Texan by Easter 2010 continues, will you join me in praying for the evangelism efforts going on across the state each day?

    Thanks, John. We appreciate the State’s prayers as we continue to distribute the CD’s to the rest of El Paso County. Thanks to Christ Smith, UTEP BSM Director, he did a great job in organizing students to hand out the CD’s.

  2. John Says:

    John, you and your fellow El Paso Baptists in many ways have provided the model for Texas Baptists to follow in Texas Hope 2010. We are most thankful for everything you are doing to reach people in the name of Christ.

    And some have and are doubting the impact handing the cd out will have. Our area is gearing up for the cd distribution very soon. It is one among some ways to reach people. It is not intended to be the end all in evangelism. It would be spiritually lazy to only hand out the cd and claim to have done all in the way of evangelism. But it is a start and for that I applaud.

  4. John Says:

    Wacky, when are you looking at doing the distribution effort?

  5. wackypreacher Says:

    Don’t know yet. Probably within the next six months at least. We are currently talking about it and getting geared up for it.
