There were 5 (Ricos, Ilex, Chris, Thomas, and Scott) who gave their lives to Jesus this evening. In each case we led them to 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We also showed them that they have a Father in heaven who has adopted them as his children. Romans 8:15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." We explained that "Abba" meant "Dad" and that they could now cry out, "Dad, come and help me."
Gary (staff) -- We prayed that his finances would be brought under control and that he and his wife would have a common mind in Jesus. He asked prayer for his sons Josh (29) who is a teacher's aide and is underemployed and Christopher (27) who is a court officer, and for his daughter Becky who is a stay-at-home mom. He also asked prayer for Dennis, a friend, to be set free from addiction. We also prayed for Jean.
Ted (volunteer) -- We prayed for his granddaughter Camille to be set free from Lyme's disease and for Jean who is struggling with light-headedness.
John (young man, regular) -- He asked prayer for his sister Veeka.
+++ 199 Ricos (young man) -- He had last given his life to Jesus in 2004. He confessed his sins and gave his life to Jesus agian and accepted God's cleansing grace.
We urged John and Ricos (above two) to support one another in prayer and fellowship.

+ a Terry (young woman) -- She has growths in her lower intestines and is supposed to start chemo. She is frightened. We anointed her for healing.
+Tammy (woman) -- Her family has rejected her because she is living with her boyfriend. We prayed that she would be brought into a right relationship with her boyfriend and with Jesus.

+ a 199 Chris (volunteer, young man) -- He came and sat down for prayer. When we asked him if he had ever given his life to Jesus he said, "Well, I go to church sometimes." We explained that wasn't the same thing. He confessed his sins to Jesus and a look of joy came over his face when he heard that he was now clean.
