First Fruits

It's exciting to see the fruit that is being produced at Grace River. I received calls from two individuals today sharing with me some very exciting stories of God's activity.

The first person shared with me that on Sunday afternoon they were speaking with a friend who had just suffered some devastating loss in their life. This person was tired of the pain, tired of God, and tired of living. The thing that came to their mind as they listened to their friend was the message on "Destiny" that they had heard at Grace River earlier in the day. The summary of the message that they shared seemed to be exactly what was needed in the moment and this person shared with me that they felt like that sermon had saved this person's life.

Secondly, we had a young man present who is staying with one of our families. He seemed alert and engaged in the message on Sunday. He told this family that he was really thinking about what was said. Later that evening, well into the night, unable to sleep, that young man called for the mother of the house to come and share with him how he could give his life to Christ. Praise God! To my knowledge this is the first fruit of Grace River--the very first person to pray to give their life to Jesus.

"The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet" (Romans 16:20).
