ALEXANDRIA – The Rapides Parish Coliseum became a house of prayer Monday night, Oct. 15.
Dozens of people lined the altar after a call to pray for restoration and the lost by evangelist Ken Freeman on the second night of the Hope4U GO TELL Crusade.
“We’re running out of time,” Freeman said moments earlier about the need to share Christ. “We’ve gotta get busy.”
Freeman shared his testimony of how he turned from an out of control life to a purpose-driven one anchored in Christ.
After accepting a friend’s invitation to attend a church service in 1968, Freeman found Jesus. For more than 30 years, he has shared the Gospel at more than 3,000 churches and seen more than 200,000 individuals make a decision for Christ.
He told the crowd Jesus can transform their lives too, if they repent of their sins and turn to Him.
“I’m proof,” he said. “God can take a mess and make it His message.”
At the invitation, 38 of the 783 in attendance came forward to declare Christ the Lord of their lives and eight made other decisions.
The Hope4U GO TELL Crusade continues through Oct. 17 6:30 p.m. at the Rapides Parish Coliseum in Alexandria. During today’s session, Scott Camp, founder of Discover Joy Ministries in Fort Worth, Texas will bring a Gospel message, and award-winning Christian band NewSong will share about Christ through music.
