Christ is the Answer Campaign July 26-29
The churches of Mid-Ohio Valley are preparing for a huge campaign in their high school field house. Partnering with SEARCH, which appears each Sunday morning on WTAP, the broadcast station of Parkersburg. SEARCH has much loyalty among the churches of this area, and we are grateful to go there.
Only July 22 hundreds of Christian workers will begin knocking 47,000 doors in the Mid-Ohio area around Parkersburg WV and Belpre OH. We are expecting crowds exceeding 2,000 people. This is the biggest event in WV in many years.
We ask that you pray fervently for this effort. Workers knocking doors are already beginning to see a positive response, recognizing pictures of Mack and me. One has already responded to the gospel invitation.
Alan Stephens of Brentwood, TN, has worked ceaselessly for many months promoting this effort. Church leaders in WV and OH have met monthly for a year! Robert Reed, a deacon in Parkersburg has worked hard coordinating this effort. The campaign has had signs in the city and 200 commercials on television. Workers will be coming in from Tennessee and Texas as well as other states. More than twenty churches are involved. We thank God for all of them!!
