Today, we introduce to you Jake Forland as we continue our Champion Stories this week. Jake was our youngest teammate from the Beautiful Feet Mission Trip to Fort Worth, Texas in January, and the trip wouldn't have been the same without him! See below to read Jake's story about how the Lord moved in his life during his time in Fort Worth.
One thing that I saw was that homeless people can be really joyful. It touched me to see that. It felt really good to give them food, to share something with them from the Word of God, to make them feel happy, and to pray with them.
I prayed with one man, and he was so joyful, so nice, and the happiest man you would ever meet. When I started talking with him, I learned from the Beautiful Feet staff that he was a Muslim. It broke my heart. I prayed with him that God would reveal Himself to him and that he would know the truth...that Jesus did die on the cross. He wasn't just a prophet. He did die on the cross for our sins. He was the Messiah and the Son of God. I just wanted him to know that so that when he dies he would be able to go to Heaven knowing the truth.
You don't have to go to Fort Worth or to another country. You can share Christ right here in Brenham. There are a bunch of big time missionaries like Billy Graham, who was a famous evangelist and went everywhere and preached the Gospel to a bunch of people. You can do that in any city. It can be in America or in Texas. It doesn't have to be somewhere else. It could even be at church like on Wednesday ministry nights just helping out.
We have one more story from the team to share tomorrow, Continue to follow along! To view more photos from the Beautiful Feet Mission Trip, visit here. To read the other stories from the team featured this week, visit here, here, and here.
