PRAY & GO

EXPANDING

When God sovereignly initiated the launch of SFHOP in 2005, He made it very clear that we were not only to pray, but PRAY & GO. We have followed Him in that ever since, counting it a great privilege to share the Gospel in His Harvest Fields, and helping others to do the same.
In the last few years The Lord has led us to expand our outreaches. And with large numbers of people wanting prayer at SF outdoor events, many ministries have stepped up to help. We have had to rent additional booth space at the Haight Street & Folsom Street Fairs, + purchase more tents and rent more chairs to accommodate the hungry souls who stop for ministry!
All the outreaches have seen a great increase of people coming to Christ. New disciples are being raised up …This is a direct result of the Lord telling us to beMORE INTENTIONAL in sharing the Gospel & leading those He brings us to salvation!

It was obvious we needed more training to be able to present the Gospel in a simple and precise way, making room for the Holy Spirit to bring conviction of sin and the desire to receive Eternal Life.

Since that time, we’ve sought out and engaged experienced evangelists for practical instruction. We then all go door-to-door, into the marketplace, or to the prayer tents TOGETHER to do what we’ve learned!  Now Mike Dowling is being sent out regularly to share all these things with others in the region.

OUTREACH TESTIMONIES

TENT TREASURES

Mike Yoo ministered with me all day. He had never before done prophetic evangelism, but God immediately began to give him scriptures for our visitors, and he was able to prophesy God’s call on their lives. It was an easy to transition from blessing into sharing the Gospel of Salvation.  During the 8 hours we ministered, only two people walked away without inviting Jesus into their hearts for the remission of their sins & to receive eternal life …It was as if [each] knew deep in their hearts that this was their day of salvation.  And most of those who prayed did not want to leave the tent after receiving Him!

But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an ungifted man enters, he is convicted & called to account by all you say, The secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so he will fall on his face and worship God, declaring“Without a doubt, God is here with you.”  (1Cor 14:24-25)

DOOR TO DOOR HOME RUN

Two of us (one, a teenager) knocked at a door and let the lady know we were from local churches blessing their neighborhood that day, and did she need prayer for anything? When she told us of extreme back pain, we asked permission to lay hands on her back & pray for her. Inviting the presence of the Holy Spirit, we prayed, commanding the pain to leave. She was instantly healed!

Next we asked her if she died tonight, was she SURE she would go to heaven.  She said “No”.  So we shared the story of why Jesus came; His death & resurrection.  Asking Jesus to come into her heart, she was born again, and gave us permission to come back to bring her a Spanish Bible.

A few days later when we came, the woman’s sister and niece were visiting.  We shared the Gospel with them on the front lawn while they washed their car. Both then asked Jesus into their hearts. When the matriarch of the family arrived, we asked if she had any prayer needs. Telling us of a long standing pain in her left side, she said, “You prayed for my daughter and she was healed. Will you pray for me too?”  When we did, the pain was disappeared, and she exclaimed, “Something just left my body!” Not only was she healed, but she prayed the salvation prayer, and invited us into her home, and gave us permission to hold Bible studies there.  Since then, many of her family have received ministry & come to faith in Christ.
