We got to Palmer, about an hour out of Anchorage around 5 p.m. As the men began to file in, we scattered into the crowd to meet them personally. We played to a packed house : ) and many who hung outside, their hearts intrigued, their minds uncertain. We talked honestly about finding God in the midst of our real and often painful circumstances. I shared my story and let them know I hated God at one point for allowing hurtful things to happen to me. I wrestled with Him and was honest with God. He showed up for me and I knew He'd do the same no matter where they were at. Several men prayed to receive Christ that night. Several others didn't and that's okay too. But they moved closer to a God who does care...This week, 68 men, women and teens made a decision to give God a try and asked Him in. Pray for each of these people - that they would see and experience Jesus as a reality and ever faithful presence in their lives.
