Multiplying disciples and churches
until there is No Place Left 

A No Place Left Raleigh-

Durham Update

New normal for a while. Simple Church on Zoom.
As with probably all of you, as of last week, I have to stay at home until April 30 (but probably longer). But praise the Lord that we have video calls as our house churches, disciples and leaders could pretty seamlessly start meeting online. 

However, when my brain starts feeling like mush from staring too much at Zoom calls, I like to remember what God was doing in person right before we got shut down...

Just a few weeks ago, Wesley and I joined Sara and Uniqa (and Uniqa's 4 kids) to go sharing the gospel in a pretty rough apartment complex in Durham where Uniqa knew some folks. Uniqa was led to Christ by Sara in the past year and as she has grown as a disciple, God has given her a passion to share the gospel... 
Uniqa, Sara, Wesley, me and one of Uniqa's kids just getting back from some good gospel sharing time where we practiced better social distancing than we are demonstrating in this picture.
The 8 of us first went to share another story about Jesus with Teresa who Sara and Uniqa met while prayer walking the week before. And by "we" I mean that Uniqa and Sara talked with Teresa while Wesley and I listened in, kept the kids under control, and quietly prayed that God would move in Teresa's heart.

Teresa was hungry for the Lord saying things like "we could be the church right here!" But she broke down crying, burdened by her desire to follow Jesus, but feeling trapped by her addictions. After more conversation, Teresa happily invited us to come back again another day and we kept walking to share with new people.

It was so encouraging to be with Uniqa as she is from this area and has great wisdom on the mindset of the people and is way better than I am at communicating the gospel to them.

🙏 PRAY that Uniqa would continue to grow during this time of isolation (she just decided a few days ago to finally get baptized!)
🙏 PRAY that God would continue to bring us people who want to come to know Him and then go share the gospel with others
