We are thrilled with Pastor Dennis Tapp’s dwindling Find Five list! At Exchange seminars we challenge believers to identify 5 people in their sphere of influence who need the gospel, pray for those people, and ask God to open doors. Only two weeks after we left First Baptist in Woodville, Wisconsin, God used Dennis to reach three souls.
The first was a guest at church who has visited a few times and expressed her need for salvation by a raised hand at the invitation. Pastor and Deborah invited her to do The Exchange four-lesson Bible study. She readily agreed and placed her faith in Jesus Christ. She texted this powerful verse to Deborah, reminding us of the freedom found in a relationship with God.
“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven,
And whose sins are covered;
Blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall not
The second two souls were saved during marriage counseling with Pastor Tapp. They had visited First Baptist during the previous holiday season, so when they decided to get married they asked Pastor Tapp to officiate their wedding. What better way to begin a marriage than by accepting Christ as Savior?
We are reminded that not everyone who steps foot in church has a real relationship with God. May we welcome guests into our churches and be sensitive to their spiritual needs.
