What do these type of people have in common?
The Redeemed Adventure Project has been able to have an impact on the lives of people who are still trying to figure things out. We share the Good News about what God wants to do in their story and then we walk with them through the messiness of life, while identifying God's work in our adventures. He alone is the Author and Finisher of our Faith!
This has been an amazing year and we couldn't have done it with out your help. Many who support what we are doing don't often see the messy side of loving people who are hurting because with IRR it all has the fun attributes of an epic adventure. When we get folks on adventure, The Lord puts the right people in the right place, to do His work in their lives and I couldn't plan it better by myself!
One quick story for the record.
This season I had the privilege of spending time with a man who professed that he did not believe in God. He eluded to characterizations of christianity with comments like "Faith is a crutch," "Why would God do this or that?" After a 4 hour conversation of simply hearing his story, I had determined that He had been deeply wounded by an ultra religious father and that He had lost all hope. In short, this man, who wanted nothing to do with God was searching desperately for satisfaction through adventure. We had the opportunity to identify that we were created by God to have an epic adventure. When our conversation had ended. He acknowledged that he had been challenged by our dialogue and that He had never lost a debate on the matters we had discussed. He frequently went back and forth to his camper to think through things, always coming back with new questions. When our conversations finally came to an end He said that he was going to reintroduce himself to the scriptures and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to him personally through all of the religious wounds and the twisted perspectives He had been brought up in. He had come full circle from denial that there was a God to recognition that He was a spiritual being and that God was speaking to him during our conversations.
When we parted ways, I had a new friend who allowed me to pray for him. We shared our contact information, and then he gave me the biggest thank you hug in our parting that I have ever had.
I love this kind of ministry, It is so different than what I was used to when I was pastoring. Most of all I am thankful for the folks who see the value of getting in the ruts with messy people and seeing where the adventure takes us.
Thank you for your commitment to this ministry and to the lost folks that Jesus loves more than anything else!
