Saturday June 6th, 2015 marked the first official MSP Outreach of the summer. Due to a scheduling conflict, there were no flyers for the upcoming Young Women’s Conference or Hot Sheets at the meeting place, but God still had a plan. After prayer, the team promptly headed out to the streets of Soulard. Only one block from the church, Adrienne Ransom and two other volunteers came across a man walking down the street. He seemed highly frustrated as the two struck up a conversation. The man had just had a major fight with his girlfriend, jumped out of her car, and did not know what to do. They had been having relationship issues for some time due to his drinking problem. Adrienne began to pray for him- that God would touch his heart and set him free from the alcohol. As the prayer ended, the man was in tears thanking God for sending help his way at that exact moment.
Simultaneously, two other team members- Bill and Mary Neumann, saw this man’s girlfriend crying in her car and had gone over to minister to her. As the three of them talked, the woman explained her situation and how she felt helpless and alone. As Adrienne and the man walked back over to his girlfriend’s car, she felt led to speak to the woman. She explained to her the importance of commitment, communication, and submitting to one another. While they were talking, the man decided to get back into his girlfriend’s car. Next, Adrienne felt led to ask them to re-dedicate their lives to Jesus. Both had the faith, but felt separated from God. They agreed it was necessary to come to Jesus- individually and as a couple. With tears streaming down their faces, the man and his girlfriend came back to Christ that day as the entire team surrounded them in prayer. The couple plans to keep God at the center of their lives and to start attending the Rock Church in Soulard together. Despite the conflicts at the beginning, God still had a plan to reach that couple as the team obeyed His leading out on the streets. God will always turn a mess around for the best, if you allow Him.
