Noho 9-19-09 Follow Up

We are truly a family!

Sharon's prayer request:
Pray for Jose and Fabian and Sergei (Russian). Jose would like us to come out and speak to the other homeless people near where he lives. He says he is coming back next week.

Jose is a guy who Sharon was blessed to witness to last night at Noho. HE CAME TO CHURCH TODAY!!! What an encouragement! Please pray for him and that we get to share the good news with his community.


  1. Beautiful how the Law of God closed her mouth.

    What a night. I'm glad the Lord allowed you all to make it home. And I thank God for back-up like, Dean. :-)

  2. Praise God for his protection! I stayed late with Jose by myself, probably shouldn't have done that. The alcoholic man came back and began to push Jose aggressively and knocked off his hat. I grabbed Jose and told him to come with me. He continued to follow us for quite awhile. He told us that we better not try to mess with him when he's sober. I'll be praying for wisdom as to our safety in this situation, NoHo, and future evangelistic efforts.

  3. Josh,

    I'm reading Psalms right now and realizing it is the Lord who is our protector and I praise Him for being a shield to us. Your story about Jose has affirmed what I thought we should do, I feel like we are having an impact there and satan is ramping up things to try and discourage us from going there... so this week we are going back!

  4. Let us all pray for boldness like the early church, that God's name might be glorified.

    "When they had been released, they went to their own companions and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them. And when they heard this, they lifted their voices to God with one accord and said, "O Lord, it is You who MADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA, AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM, who by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David Your servant, said, 'WHY DID THE GENTILES RAGE, AND THE PEOPLES DEVISE FUTILE THINGS? THE KINGS OF THE EARTH TOOK THEIR STAND, AND THE RULERS WERE GATHERED TOGETHER AGAINST THE LORD AND AGAINST HIS CHRIST.' "For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose predestined to occur. "And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence, while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus." And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness." Acts 4:23-31

  5. Great biblical reminders and very encouraging Faith and David.
