New Evangelist!

Tonight while I was out taking my son to football practice and going to a funeral visitation a new evangelist was born in our family. Cassandra called to tell me that my soon to be 8 year old daughter Hope had just led a girl a few doors down from us to Christ. Hope pulled out her Bible and shared with this little girl about Jesus. Then she told Cassandra what she was doing. She asked Cass if she could pray with the little girl to ask Jesus in her heart. Cass said yes and had Hope tell her what she was going to say. Cass was going to go with Hope but when she came out of the room Hope had her head bowed with the little girl and was praying the sinners prayer with her. Cass said Hope told the little girl that Heaven would have pearly gates, golden streets, and that there would be no more pain in heaven. Cool!

That's great. Hope's a real sweet girl and I'm glad she has become part of our church family!

That's great!

It seems that modeling an evangelistic (missional) life makes a difference, especially for your kids.

Fantastic!!! She's already shared her faith more than your average Southern Baptist.

Seriously what a testimony. Praise God!!!

That is amazing.

That is awesome! I called my 7 year old daughter into the room, read her the post about Hope, and talked with her about how she could do the same thing. She's been saved, but she has not gotten baptized yet. It gave us a great chance to talk about what salvation means, what baptism is (non-IMB trustee version:)) and how to share that with others. Thanks, Kevin, for creating a teachable moment for my daughter and I!

That is absolutely AWESOME!

And to think, the big news on my blog recently was that I had some success fishing, caught a nice sized bass, and was proud of my good fortune. You, though, have something to REALLY be proud of... you're raising a little fisher of men.

I'll say it again, because it's true... that's just so awesome, Kevin!

I am so proud of you Hope!! Hey Kevin, Cassandra, Jacob and Hopie!! I miss you guys so much. I always knew from the moment I met Hope and taught her in Sunday school that she was an incredibly special young lady. I'll say it again. Hope I am so proud of you

It is too bad we lose some of our openness and willing to share as we get older. We live in such a PC world and sometimes we are too afraid of offending someone. Maybe I shouldn't say "we", but me. I read your blog everyday and for awhile couldn't figure out how I got here, not being a Baptist. But I noticed Scott Freeman commented today and there is the link. BTW have you ever heard Jeff Walling preach? He is at Providence Road Church of Christ and I know you two would really hit it off.

We are glad to be here.




Thanks for all you did teaching Hope!


I don't know Jeff but I am always looking for like minded people to connect with. I am a follower of Christ 1st and a Baptist 2nd. Thanks for stopping by!

Kevin, I know you must be very proud. My son did well in baseball and I was proud of him this year and this post made me question just what I should be encouraging my seven year old son to do. What he has done lately is simply insignificant compared to your daughter.

Your daughter proves the validity of relational evangelism. It works and works well. Amazing.

That's so exciting!!! Hope sounds like an amazing young lady who is already taking after her father. : )

Your story reminds me of the verse in 3John 1:4 "I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth."
