They say April is the month of showers, and this has indeed been the truth for the Redeem team. However, the team pushed past the rain and was ready to serve no matter what. Five new volunteers answered the call to serve those in the Human and Sex Trafficking wars. With these new hands on deck, we were able to minister to so many more families!
We encountered one mother of three who recently rededicated her life to the Lord. She was staying in a local hotel, and we were able to bless her with prayer and encouragement. Several Families were blessed in the Budget Inn & Suites with meals and roses during our street outreach.
On one such outreach, our team met a young 7-year-old boy with the desire to preach the word of God. The family shared with us that his uncle was killed due to gun violence 2 years ago. We were able to intercede for his walk with God and pray over him that his steps would always be ordered by the Lord.
Our Redeem team is continuing to grow and take bold steps to minister to the lost. We are building relationships within the city and seeing hearts light up from those who are caught in the world of trafficking at the local clubs. We are so precious to our Father in Heaven; He cares for us. Please continue to keep the Redeem team in your prayers on Friday nights as we go out and share the love of Jesus.

My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
