6. Video showing two young men rededicating their lives back to Christ. This is an interesting witness showing the need to lead people past their initial response. Also, you will see how easy it is to build a bridge to another person standing nearby. The most dramatic part of this witness was the presence of the Holy Spirit felt by us and those we were ministering to.

We went to a depressed part of Waco, Texas to a convenience store. Often times we see God establish His presence in a public place and His presence is often manifested as conviction of sin and love for all people. After we prayed and began to approach people, we could see how powerfully He was dealing with people’s lives and He was giving us favor to speak to them.

These two young men were really touched by God as we shared Christ with them. Both showed so many scars on their faces from having lived such a difficult life already. They both agreed that their difficulty in life was from how they had grown up and now they were faced with doing what they could do to make it. One said, “I was on my way to get a beer and would not be talking to you now if I did not feel it (Holy Spirit).” They were trying to do their best and yet they could not live the life that they had hoped to live. When I said, “God loves you more than he loves me because I came to meet you from Arkansas,” one man hugged me and you could tell they were both touched. I also was feeling the presence of the Holy Spirit so powerfully and I pressed further with my witness.

During this witness I felt the assurance in my heart that the Holy Spirit would complete a work in these men's hearts. I simply followed what I felt and the result was two changed lives. These young me did not purchase what they had intended in the store. We praise the Lord for this night and the opportunity to share Christ.
