Harrison Rally Day – Riegel’s Report

November 9, 2009

SOS Soul Winners Sharing the 3 Things(by Don and Shirley Riegel) Our church had a booth at Harrison Rally Day (HRD). The “Three Things God Cannot Do” were presented to 203 people of which there were 26 decisions to trust Christ (17 for the first time and 9 for assurance). We had six workers at the booth plus one who was trained two years ago and was not on the schedule. Pray that our church will do more outreach events like this and that all members and young people will take the training. One rather shy man had tried to witness to people before, but he had not seen anyone receive Christ as Savior as the result of his effort until HRD. He had twelve people pray to be saved including five girls at one time. When asked “Do you plan to use the SOS method again and would you encourage others to take the training and work at the booth?”, he said “yes!”

Testimony from a Shy Soul Winner“Achieving God’s purpose involves taking faith filled risks (Heb. 11:6). That’s exactly what I did recently when I stepped out of my comfort zone and, in faith, took the SOS training. I followed the Holy Spirit’s leading to bring others to Christ at the recent Harrison Rally Days.
Taking a faith filled risk, is one of our core values, and I feel SOS gives me more passion now to tell others about Jesus. It will help me to be more of a “doer of the Word and not just a hearer only.” WW (OH)

To God be the glory. Great things He hath done!!
