Randal, you asked if I had something on my heart that I am praying about. Your question made me stop and remember a vow that I made last Saturday with 150 others. I am praying fervently, daily, about the Christ Is the Answer Campaign in Parkersburg, WV on July 26-29. I am the speaker for this campaign.
Several hundred workers from many states will join together to knock the 40,000 doors of homes throughout Woods Count, WV. Brethren in Belpre, OH across the Ohio River will knock several thousand more. We will be advertizing the campaign and setting up Bible studies.
In 1967 Jimmy Allen held a campaign in Parkersburg with 2400 people in attendance each evening at the Parkersburg High School Memorial Field House. Nearly 100 people were baptized into Christ. We are hoping after 43 years to do the same. About twenty churches are committed to participate in this Mid-Ohio Valley event.
Joe Wells of Kaio magazine will be working with youth. Chris Walker will lead the singing. Neil Anderson of the Gospel Advocate will serve as Master of Ceremonies.
We have been working and praying for this campaign for nearly three years. We are now in the last 90 days before it happens. Please join me in praying for this effort. We hope to light a fire to sweep across the nation. If you would like materials for what we say at the door or the Bible studies we will use, I will be happy to send you copies that you may reproduce.
God is good.
