Pittsburgh Day 2: Canvassing, Laundry Love and a $1 Car Wash

And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. – Acts 2:47b

What an awesome day of ministry yesterday! The morning was full of canvassing local neighborhoods with information about Living Faith Community Church and our community outreach coming up this weekend. After a quick lunch we headed out again to three different ministry sites. One of our teams traveled to a local Pep Boys who graciously donated all the necessary supplies and their parking lot for our team to host a $1 Car Wash. The concept behind the $1 Car Wash is that we advertise a car wash for a dollar and when the “customer” pulls up we pay them a dollar. This causes them to ask the best question ever: “Why?” From there it is a natural flow into a Gospel conversation and the story of Living Faith Community Church. Our other car wash team went to a local Applebee’s and between the two locations we washed dozens of cars and told scores of people about the good news of Jesus Christ and what God is doing here in Pittsburgh. Our third team went to a local laundromat where we hosted a Laundry Love Project. Several people were served and shared with during that event. One of our team members was able to share the Gospel with a mormon lady who listened intently as the seed was planted. We will continue to pray for her salvation.

After a long day of ministry, our team traveled back to our hotel where we gathered with members of LFCC for a time of worship, preaching and prayer. The middle school worship band led a powerful time of worship and our own Aaron Peters boldly proclaimed the finished work of the cross of Jesus Christ. During our prayer time one of the men who has been attending LFCC for several months gave his life to Christ! Continue to pray for Jason that God would strengthen his faith and his commitment to being a disciple of Christ. After worship we had a time of sharing and debriefing on what God did yesterday through our students. Be in prayer that our team would continue to shine a light for Jesus Christ as we go throughout neighborhoods and downtown Pittsburgh today.
