Journey to New Heights

Journey to New Heights
We need a heart for the lost

Monday, November 7, 2011


Monday, a new day a new week a new chance to go with God.  We are preparing to have a big event in our church.  It is on December 2.  We are having Todd Burpo speak.  There will be two services on at 6pm and one at 8:30pm.  We have a small church, we average about forty of fifty people an Sunday.  Most of his appearance bring out about 6,500 people.  We are planning to have around 600 people show up so that is why we are having two services.  Seating will be limited and parking will be an issue.  So the church is all trying to prepare for this event.

For those of you who are not familiar with Todd Burpo.  He is the author of "Heaven is For Real".  His son had a near death experience and was taken up to heaven.  The book is his story.  Todd's book is on the New York Bestsellers list and has been for several weeks.  He is in great demand as a speaker and it was only by the grace of God we were able to have him here.

The pastor was announcing the event yesterday in church and he said this was the first time a best selling author would appear in our church.  Then he looked at me and said but it won't be the last.  What a thrill that was to me.  Just a few months ago he was trying to get me to write something other than fiction.  We have all come a long way.

This event has been a real learning experience and a real growth for the entire church.  We will be struggling with the plans for the next several weeks but we know God is in it.  God's heart is for the lost and we are praying for at least 200 souls through this event. A census shows there are over 6000 unchurched souls in Custer county so it is our desire to reach these people.  It is God's desire that non shall be lost, no not one.

How about your church?  Do you have a heart for the lost?  It's a new day, a new week, a new start.  Let's go out and win the lost!
