First Outreach of the Year – Chattahoochee Valley

January 27, 2021

On Saturday January 16, we kicked off the year with our first monthly outreach. People from 4 different churches gathered at Take the City. After a little bit of worship and training, we split into teams and went out. My team and I walked around the Highlands community. Even though it was cold, the Lord showed up in powerful ways. We ministered to one man on his porch. We prayed for a him and his mom; he teared up and felt encouraged by our prayers. As we continued our walk, we prayed blessings over some homes and met a few neighbors. As we made our way back to the building, we met a woman on her porch.

She shared that she would pray and talk to God every morning and would minister to people as they walked by. We asked her if we could pray for anything. She said, “yes! My back!

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.
