Soul Winning Day and the Empty Hearted Man

I invited the students of Puerto Baptist College to come to our church and help us evangelize in the neighborhood around us. About 22 students came and participated in this "Soul-Winning Day."

About 16 persons made some kind of profession of faith, and of those, 4 came to a special service that we held that same night.

One man, David Figueroa, told us that he had an "empty heart" that he was trying to fill with all kinds of things, but could never find anything to fill it.  

His yearning reminded me of what St. Augustine said of the human heart: 

"Thou hast made us for thyself, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee.”

David has been back twice since then. A grandmother and her granddaughter came also. The granddaughter brought two friends since, and one of them has made a decision for Christ.

We are very happy about all of this. 

Please pray for these new people in our church, that they will continue, and that we might minister to them effectively for the Lord.
