MSP Effective Evangelism Conference- Sunday October 26th, 2014
Christians should never be intimidated by evangelism and shy away from sharing their faith. In fact, your daily lifestyle and attitude toward others speaks more of your beliefs than any words you will ever say. At the MSP Effective Evangelism Conference on October 26th, Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles delivered a practical message about sharing the Gospel with those around you. Every believer is fully able to tell others about Christ if they would realize it is not about winning a theological argument. The world needs to know how Jesus changed your life and helps you on a daily basis. Christianity is about a personal relationship with God, not a list of religious doctrines. You may be the only example of Jesus someone ever sees in their life. Do not be intimidated to talk about your faith. MiNiMe said it best, “You have what it takes to take over the enemy’s territory; you just have to believe it.”
Directly following the message, Adrienne Ransom struck up a conversation with a lady from the community. The day before she had come home from work, heard the music from DJ G’s jeep and saw the cross coming down her street. Her neighbor was outside and told her about the MSP Effective Evangelism Conference the following day at Harvest Church Illinois. She decided to come out to see what it was all about after one of the MSP team members handed her a flyer with more information. The lady was in awe of the practical message, the free food, and the programs that were available. She felt extremely blessed and decided to make Harvest her church home. Adrienne also signed her up on the hot sheets to receive some assistance with food and clothing. In all, the 2014 MSP Effective Evangelism Conference was a great success. We would especially like to thank the Harvest Church Illinois for hosting this event, and also coming out on the streets with us all month, as we spread the Word around the local area. Last but not least, one family came down to the conference all the way from Hannibal, MO. Watch here to see what it meant to them.

Carry the Cross with MSP – Saturday October 25th, 2014
It’s not everyday that you see a big wooden cross carried down the street in your neighborhood. In fact, it’s probably one of the last things you expect to see! On Saturday afternoon, a young man and some other kids were outside on the front porch; when music blasting from a jeep and a giant cross followed by a group of people came down the street. Everyone outside the house stopped to stare and then asked to know more. Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles
went over to the porch, passed out flyers, and told them about the upcoming event. The young man asked about the cross and wanted to hear MiNiMe
rap. He promptly left the porch and joined the group as we continued down the street. Not only did he stay with us the entire afternoon, but he also took turns carrying the cross. At the end of the outreach, he was almost speechless except for this response- watch below to see the impact! Carry the Cross with MSP
is truly an unforgettable experience.

MSP Outreach- Saturday October 4th, 2014
“I need a job!” Not the first words you expect to hear upon meeting a stranger, but at least she was honest. During Saturday’s outreach, the entire team was walking through a neighborhood off State Street. Everyone stopped on a corner where a group of family and friends had gathered. When Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles asked if anyone needed anything, a young lady spoke up “Yeah- I need a job!” He replied, “Well- we can help with that!” While she was filling out the Hot Sheet with her information, Mike began to talk with her and asked if she had ever asked Jesus to come into her heart. The lady replied she had been baptized and gone to church a few times, but that was it. Pastor Frank Jackson and Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles immediately began to explain the Gospel to her and what it meant to accept Christ as your Savior. During the conversation, her entire face began to change as she realized the truth of what Jesus had done for her. The young lady decided it was time to repent and receive all of what Christ had to offer because of the cross. With tears of gratitude in her eyes and a smile on her face, she said no one from a local church had ever come down her street before, and she had lived in the same house for 6 years. The next day, the young lady went to the nearby Harvest Church Illinois for Sunday service. She has also been receiving some needed food and additional assistance.

MSP Outreach- Saturday October 18th, 2014.
Have you ever thought your life was beyond repair? Or that God would not accept you because of your past choices? Think again…this is exactly what this young man thought until he encountered Jesus and the truth of the Gospel out on State Street in East St. Louis. During MSP Outreach this past Saturday, Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles saw him on the street, walked up, and started to share about the upcoming conference at the nearby Harvest Church. The man explained how he had been looking for a steady job with no real success. Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles said that MSP was able to assist him in that area, and had him start filling out a Hot Sheet with his information. As Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles held his beer, the young man opened up and shared how he really wanted to change his entire lifestyle, but felt trapped. He had made poor choices in the past and felt unworthy to approach God for help because of it. Immediately, Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles shared with him the truth that a relationship with Jesus will give you the ability to transform your life; starting from the inside out. The young man decided in that moment to accept Christ into his heart. He signed up to join a church and MSP will be seeking to place him in Mission St. Louis– one of our program partners- for job training and search assistance.
‘Til next time…See YOU on the streets.
