During 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?
