Last week, Caring Hearts partnered with the ministry "Heaven's Gates Hell's Flames" and produced an evangelistic play that took place for three nights; Nov. 7, 8 & 9.
Ernesto Lopez had the necessary role of the devil. Yesterday, during Caring Hearts staff prayer, Ernie shared a testimony. One of the days before the play, he was visiting neighbors and inviting them to the event. He met a family that told him they would very much like to go, but, didn't have a car and had no way to get there. Finally, they told him, "We will really try to get there somehow, but, just in case we don't, can you tell us a little of what the play is about?"
Ernie proceeded to tell them that the play was about the choices that each person has; to choose in this life who the want to follow (God or any other thing) and for those who choose to follow Jesus, their name is found in the book of life when the die. He explained how that meant they could spend eternity with God. They were so impacted by talking with Ernie, that they all prayed to receive Jesus Christ as their savior that afternoon. The truth of God's word is the truth whether it is presented elaborately or simply.
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."
