Good News Tampa Soul-winning Testimonies
Tuesday, May 15, 2007
For 1 year we have offered salvation to a patient in a nursing home. He
was a Jehovah's Witness. Today, he accepted salvation and said, "I feel
so good inside, thank you!"
Gabe is 9 years-old. He went out witnessing today with his mother, but
has never witnessed to anyone. Today, he used the Gospel soul-winning
script and led 18 people to the Lord.
night we were witnessing in the Wal-Mart parking lot. I led a drug
dealer and buyer to the Lord right in the middle of a drug deal! They
both prayed the prayer of salvation!
inmate at Hillsborough Correctional Women's Prison led nine people to
the Lord using the gospel script. Also, inmates at Orient Rd. Jail are
winning souls while behind bars.
Friday I had two boys come to my door selling a newspaper and I said
the prayer with them. This past Friday four teen boys came to my door
asking for a friend but was at the wrong house. While I was there I
said the prayer with them. Instead of finding their friend they found
Jesus. And yesterday another guy came to my door and got saved. They
just keep coming to my door
We went to the Spanish Outreach
yesterday. People came to the area where all of us were to pray.
Every person received prayer and a food box. They were so happy.
They even went to get family members to come back. We prayed for about
140 people. One man that we prayed for before came back (he was drunk
and got saved) this time he brought his wife. She got prayer because
she said her husband hasn't drunk a drop since he since he was prayed
for a few months ago. We prayed for people from 9-12:30 and people
still kept coming in. We packed up and went to an apartment complex.
There were many people there that received. I prayed for one man that
spoke Spanish so I had to have a translator. He kept thinking about
God and said he didn't know how to find Him. So he was happy to pray
and know he could have eternal life. People were crying and receiving
prayer so easily. It was a great harvest time. The kids we had with
us even helped translate for us and even led several children and
adults to the Lord. One woman was depressed because 3 of her children
had died. We prayed for her and she left encouraged.
As we were
getting ready to leave the bus station, I decided to bless a man with
my lunch from The River as I gave it to the man I told him that Jesus
loved him and had a plan for his life . A tear swelled in his eye and
he told me that he was contemplating suicide. I shared the love of
Jesus w/ Keith and he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior and his
whole face looked different. He thanked me for saving his life and he
told me that he was going to sculpt our faces and add us to his book he
I walked up to a lady on
the street and asked how she was doing. She broke down crying and said
that she needed help. I prayed with her and she prayed the salvation
prayer. She had an oxygen machine on her and she told me she had
congestive heart failure. I laid hands on her and prayed for her
healing. The lady I prayed with started telling me and everyone around
us that her chest felt tight at first and now the pain was gone
completely. She told me that she felt so depressed and now she was
rejoicing. She started saying how since I prayed with her that she go
healed and God created a miracle with her and her life was totally
changed. She couldn't help but to tell everyone around her. Her
countenance totally changed.
This was my
first time going to nursing homes. Many of the older people cannot
speak very well, but they accepted Jesus into their hearts. One woman
who said the prayer with her heart looked up with such beautiful eyes
and said, "Thank you". Before I even began praying, she was shaking in
her arms. She took my hands in hers and after she prayed for Jesus to
come into her heart, kept on saying "Thank you, Jesus". I began to pray
for the peace of God over her and she started weeping. "My husband from
the war…I love him so much" My heart went out to her. I placed my hand
on her chest and kept praying for peace. Her shaking began to subside
and she calmed down. Jesus binds the broken-hearted. A man sitting
next to her said "Hey, are you a minister"…"Pray for my leg." After we
prayed for him, he started moving his leg.
were in the downtown projects during the KFC campaign at the park.
There was a whole team of young men playing basketball who in reality
didn't want to stop their game. I took the mic and went to them and
read the gospel script. I invited them to receive Jesus Christ as their
Savior and the whole team which was about 15 souls received Jesus as
their Lord and Savior as they were playing their game. Praise God for
218 salvations. 2 legs growths (back pain). 2 stomach pain healed. 1 ear healed in order to receive Jesus.
homeless man named Frank was sleeping on a bench and I woke him up, and
told him that God loved him. I led him into the prayer of salvation and
when he asked Jesus into his heart he began sobbing and saying "Please,
please, please come into my heart." I prayed for deliverance from
alcohol and I know that his life will never be the same! Praise God!
I shared a testimony of how Muslims and Hindus were getting saved in
South Carolina and encouraged the group to share the gospel with people
from other faiths. A girl from one of the teams met an atheist and God
changed his heart and he got saved and wanted to go to church. I shared
this with the night outreach and a lady went out and won 2 Muslims to
the Lord and they started getting the fire of God.
first person I spoke to received the Gospel. It was weird how it
happened though. I work in sales and they told us that no means I don't
know. When I first approached this man he was like no, I don't have
time for any of this, but I said this will take half a minute, but it's
the most important thing I can tell you. So I proceeded with the
script. He didn't know if he would make it to heaven. He said the whole
prayer and afterward said. I really have to run but thank you so much
for helping me to get saved, I didn't want to hear what you have to
say. But it is just what I needed. I walked away thinking, it's a good
thing that I didn't give up right at no. He was so grateful.
was witnessing to a Spanish speaking lady in the parking lot of
Wal-Mart in Plant City. Our evangelism team was asked to leave so I
only had time for a brief discussion and to give her the script and
wish her well. I left her and as I was getting in the car to leave she
rushed from across the parking lot to where I was. She was crying and
saying that she used to be in love with Jesus and that she wanted to
love Him that way again. She also said it wasn't fair that we were
being kicked out. She asked us to pray for her. I pray that she'll make
it to the service tomorrow.
