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.

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.
