On Saturday morning September 19, people from different churches gathered at Take the City for worship and outreach. After a short training and prayer, six groups of people were sent out around the city to minister the Gospel. Tyrone Baskin and his team felt led to go downtown and join up with two other churches who were ministering together.

Tyrone and his group made their way downtown and connected with Pastor Mark and Pastor Kuturi and their team, who were preaching on a mic and praying for people as they came by. Wasting no time, Tyrone and his team jumped in.

As they prayed for people, Tyrone and his team noticed a woman hanging around and listening. His team asked if they could pray for her. She said yes. Afterwards, a guy from Pastor Kuturi’s church began to talk with her and minister to her further. She teared up and said, “I want to leave this lifestyle. I don’t want to be a Lesbian anymore. I need Jesus”. Right then and there, she gave her life to Christ. The guy from Pastor Kuturi’s church gave her a book to help her through her same-sex attraction, and she will continue to be discipled by Pastor Mark in the days to come. 

Praise Jesus! He is touching people all over the Valley and setting them free!

I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
