Not What Was Expected, But God is still Good!

Not What Was Expected, But God is still Good!

Saturday June 22 at 1:30pm, believers from all over the Chattahoochee Valley area were teeming with excitement as they set out from the Take the City building to minister to people and share the Gospel. One of our outreach leaders, along with her team, made their way down to the Riverwalk in downtown Columbus, GA. She and her team had a tent, chairs, and water ready to go.

As the team was setting up their station, they quickly came to realize that the tent they thought they had was in fact a large cushioned folding chair! Oh no! This was not what they expected! Thankfully, however, there was a large tree nearby with plenty of room for them to sit under and have protection from the sun and rain.

The team was able to give out 96 bottles of water, pray for many people, and witness the Lord heal a woman’s lungs! The woman came to the place where our outreach leader was sitting under the tree. The woman explained that she had a lung disease that caused her lungs to be restricted and her rib cage to cave in to her body. The outreach leader and a few volunteers prayed for her, and as they did, her lungs expanded and her rib cage returned to normal! The woman began to glow with excitement. She exclaimed, “I feel better!” She could breathe easier! Although the outreach didn’t start out as they had planned, God still provided and showed up in incredible ways. God is Good. All the Time. All the Time. God is Good.

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.
