Boston Soul-Winning Marathon Results
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” Proverbs 11:30
The Boston Soul-Winning Marathon this past weekend was a great success! We had 110 people show up to go soul winning! Sure we had more than that in Atlanta, Georgia, but this time, we were not the Bible belt. This was Boston, Massachusetts, which is located in a very liberal, left-winged part of the country. There were people there from Canada and all over the United States, but I was hearing a lot of New England accents, so a lot of people were local! We had 141 people saved and 11 baptized!
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:” Matthew 28:19
Not only that, but we had a great time of food and fellowship over breakfast and lunch at Panera Bread. These marathons are like rallies that help people across the country to get on fire for the Lord, and I think that it’s great that there are people who attend every marathon we put on!
“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:” Hebrews 10:24
There will be another soul-winning marathon this weekend in Nashville, TN. Brother Richard Miller who is starting a church in mid-October in Nashville will be there and will be heading up a last-minute mini marathon. I won’t be able to make it to that one, but I encourage anyone in that area to attend as well as those of you die-hards that are able to travel long distances to the marathons. I appreciate your friendship and the sacrifices you make to attend these events.
“Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” Proverbs 27:17
In addition to the soul-winning marathons that have been put on by our church and other like-minded churches, there have been people organizing their own other soul-winning marathons across the country, which is great! Brother Peter James recently held one in the Bronx, New York, and brother Giancarlo Guerrero is trying to put one together down in Miami, Florida.
To find out the dates of future soul-winning marathons, check the "Events" page at the church website.
