In early February, over 200 Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry students flooded the streets of Orlando, Florida in the lead up to The Send. I had the privilege to be a part of one of the many teams commissioned to go out to different areas to share the Gospel and see God move through miracles and healings – be it physical or emotional.
While we were on our way to the mall we were assigned to, we accidentally ended up in a dangerous part of Orlando and felt prompted to stay and pursue conversations with whoever the Lord was highlighting. As we were walking around, a gym was highlighted to me, so the team went in. There, we met a woman and asked if she could be blessed in any way, whether it be through prayer or encouragement.
Blown away by the thought, she began to share how she’d been under a lot of stress lately with different family situations and health struggles, and we took the time to share what we felt the Lord saying to her. The conversation lasted for over an hour and the woman – who claimed to never cry – was brought to tears multiple times because of the accuracy of what we were sharing and prophesying over her. The woman was blessed by our conversation and we’re still in contact today.
In that moment, God was moving in my heart with such compassion and since then, He’s been teaching me that we need to be tender to be a contender for the Great Commission and I’m learning more and more that this is the purpose and heart of everyday evangelism: to be obedient and to stop for the one.
