“Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”-Hebrews 13:3
Last Friday Evening, we gathered at Tempe Life Church,in honor of the Persecuted Church. We met under the same circumstances that underground churches all over the world do; dim candle-lights, hours of worshiping, reading the bible and praying. The difference was, we did not have to fear for our lives. We could serve God FREELY. Read more
Man converses with Jonathan as on lookers try to make sense of what he was talking about.
Love was certainly in the air this past Friday night on Mill avenue; as sets of couples
This picture pretty much summed up their personalities.
Cue Club line! Phil was preaching just to their left.
The Evangie crew hadn’t planned on going to Mill this past Friday due to another event. However, as I was driving home around 11:00pm I decided to drive past Mill Avenue, to see what kind of shenanigans Marcus and Phil were up to. As I approached Mill and 3rd Ave, I heard a man yell out, ” DANNNNNNG, Cue Club is POPINNN!” He spoke truth, there was a line of about 60+ people, and sure enough there were Marcus and Phil, bringing it strong.
As Phil was preaching this girl yelled" Stop talking about Jesus, we are here to PARRRRRRRRTY!"
…Continued from ” Night of complete MAYHEM!”
It was well past 1am on Mill Avenue as our own UFC Walti jumped back on the mic to say what we thought was his goodbyes to the crowd/Mill Avenue. Little did we know there was a fire shut up in Walter’s bones that he could not contain. He didn’t waste any time …he began speaking about persecution and his willingness to die for Christ. “WHO’S PACKING?” He shouted! “SHOOT ME!” He enticed the crowd. He continued on to talk about Jesus, grace and judgment as two men walked up. Plausibly , the pair disliked the part about judgment as that’s what they began shouting about first. The guys were both military men who served in Afghanistan. They were banking on getting to Heaven based on the fact that they served this country. While it is certainly noble and admirable to fight for ones country that will certainly not get you to Heaven. JESUS is the one and only way to the only one and only true Heaven.
Walter hoped off the mic to talk to the two guys who were at this point beginning to show signs of anger and aggression. “Em, go sit on the side for your protection.” Ephrem advised me, as the two seemed to at this point want a fight. Walter, David, Ephrem, Phil, Jonathan, and Marcus all gathered to try and reason with the two men and try to share the gospel with them. During the course of this time Marcus had the video camera on and recording. A: he does this for some stellar footage. But even more importantly he does it for protection in case anything happens… and for evidence sake (Yes I am foreshadowing haha).
