Moab, UT – When historic flooding recently hit the city of Moab, the people of Canyonlands Fellowship Church grabbed their shovels and began to dig their neighbors out of a muddy situation. Pastor Geoff Thomas led his congregation to give of their time and was rewarded with an opportunity to present the gospel to local business owners.
This is Pastor Geoff’s testimony about what took place when he witnessed his congregation step up and help-
We had a tremendous turnout for the clean-up outreach. Thirty-five of our congregation canvassed three business for about four hours on Sunday morning, September 4. Two of our volunteers had the glorious opportunity to be invited into Woody’s Tavern by the Owner of the property. At ages 80 and 82 they shared the gospel and prayed with “Sheri”. There was no doubt that this crisis softened this bar owner’s heart. Sheri’s response was the assurance to us that she got saved back in 1994.
We also encountered a host of bilingual Hispanic business owners that were very welcoming to us, as a church, being willing to help and serve their need in time of crisis.
We were all totally blessed by the whole ordeal and we recognize God’s glory and his demonstration of love through us. Humbled, we were!
