Yesterday in worship we watched a video…three people’s stories of how they hit rock bottom and God rocked their worlds. If you missed it, you can find the video here. (http://myhopewithbillygraham.org/lose-to-gain/?) If you saw it, share it. Below is a brief explanation of My Hope America. (from their own website: http://myhopewithbillygraham.org/what-is-my-hope/?).
My Hope America with Billy Graham is a nationwide effort to reach people across the United States with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Following a simple biblical model, My Hope America with Billy Graham combines the impact of videos with the power of personal relationships. Christians across America will open their homes this November to share the Gospel message with friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors using one of several new evangelistic programs featuring life-changing testimonies & powerful messages from Billy Graham.
Invite your friends and neighbors who don’t know Jesus Christ to your home for a meal or dessert—or gather them at your church or favorite hangout.
Use a TV broadcast, DVD, laptop, or mobile device to show one of several new evangelistic videos featuring life-changing testimonies & powerful messages from Billy Graham.
Next, briefly share how Jesus gave you hope and tell what He is doing in your life today.
Ask your friends if they would like to make the same decision you did to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and pray with them.
Please make a list of people you want to invite to your home, or go out for dinner with you and your iPad…so that they can see the video, have an opportunity to talk about what they saw, and turn from their sin to Jesus as their Savior. If you have family members who won’t come to church, take the Gospel to them.
Then email Andrew Walker (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us know what God did. Thanksgiving 2013 will be a celebration of changed lives!
