Last week, Vision Baptist Church held an amazing 5-day Childrenâ€™s Evangelistic Crusade with Bro. Ed Dunlop. During that time, I got to be a part of a bus ministry that started out with 10 visitors and ended with a high of 45 kids and adults and 19 church workers. It was my first time ever riding a school bus, because, while public transportation is king in Singapore (where I grew up for the majority of my life), big, yellow school buses are not the norm in that country.
I absolutely loved every minute on that bus! I loved how the Pine Ridge kids got so excited to see the bus and get on it, and I loved just how enthusiastic all the workers were no matter what their role was, from leading the singing, to picking kids up from their houses, to driving. During the 5-day Crusade, 20 professions of faith were made by children and adults alike! I got to see many of these children come back to Vision this past Sunday, where they attended Sunday school and Childrenâ€™s Church and later got to eat ice cream sundaes and watch two of the Sunday School teachers get their heads shaved for an attendance competition.
It was a blessing to be able to serve the Lord in this way and bring these tender, young hearts and lives to Him. Please continue to pray for these kids and adults, that they would grow in their new-found faith. And please keep the bus ministry in your prayers. Pine Ridge was an area that used to be closed to us…But this past week has proven again that nothing is impossible with God! Please pray that we would continue to have willing workers in the bus ministry and that there would continually be an open â€œdoor of utteranceâ€ for us as we minister in the Pine Ridge area and other neighborhoods as well.
