Here is a story of how my wife and I saw success in a housing project where three other churches were evangelizing with almost no success!

Kathee and I had a burden for souls. We prayed about what to do and where to go. To reach sinners, we knew we had to go where they were. There was a rather large town fifteen miles away(Mount Union PA) . I knew we would eventually have to believe for a bus, but so be it. We began to go door-to-door to the people in the low-income housing projects in this town. They were basically African American people.

There were already at least two if not three other churches running their buses through this area. We would simply go to each door and knocking. When a person opened the door, we introduced ourselves as Pastor Mike and Kathleen Yeager from Three Springs Assembly of God church! We did not invite them to our church at that moment. We told them we were there to pray for them, and that if they had any needs, we would love to pray. (Take a writing tablet, and write down their names, prayer needs, and address) Then we asked if there were any needs they had right now? Right away we saw miracles of people being healed. We gave them our telephone number if they needed prayer, they could call us!

For over a month we just kept going door to door every week. People learned our names and began to invite us into their homes. It was as if they were looking forward to our visits. We began to see wonderful results immediately. A miniature revival erupted in that community. People were getting saved and healed everywhere! I think over 50 of them were filled with the Holy Ghost! We saw many wonderful miracles, prayers answered, and lives changed!

Bought Two Buses

Because our church so far out in the country we needed to do something to evangelize. My wife and I began to go door to door, in Mount union Pennsylvania, in the surrounding communities. We were having such a response that we went to the church board. Told them we'd like to believe God for two used school buses to pick up all of these children. They were in agreement if we could get the finances.

God supernaturally moved upon some of the people in the church to give us the money for these buses. Before very long we had to bet volunteer bus captains with drivers that were picking up the children every Sunday morning. We ended up with more children than adults in the church.

Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, and brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house (Acts 16:29-31).

Took a Quick Shower & Changed Her Cloths

One day I was out with another brother instead of my wife. As we were working our way down the street, I saw an African-American lady about five apartments ahead of us. She was hanging laundry out to dry on a clothesline behind her apartment. At that moment, she looked up and saw us. Our eyes made contact for a brief second, and she dropped her clothes and ran into her house. I knew something strange was happening. We continue going door to door.

We finally got to her door, which was just a screen door. I knocked on her door and a woman’s voice yelled from upstairs. She said to come on in. I did not want to just step into her house, being a total stranger, so I yelled through the screen door and asked her if she knew who we were. She yelled back down at us, “Yes your men of God.” We stepped into her house not knowing what to expect. She appeared at the top of the stairs with wet hair and completely different clothes on.

The next thing we knew she came down the stairs to the bottom step. The minute she got to the bottom of the stairs, she fell to her knees weeping and crying. She asked us to lead her to Jesus Christ. I led her into the sinner’s prayer and then I perceived she was ready for the Holy Ghost. So, I prayed right then and there for her to be filled with the Holy Ghost. She began to speak in a brand-new heavenly language.

We were awestruck by how God was moving. She later informed us what had happened. She said that when she saw us, she knew in her heart that she was not right with the Lord. She was convicted that she was filthy and lost. She felt so dirty that she said she had to go in and take a quick shower and put on some clean clothes. God was working so strongly in her that by the time we got to her house, she was ready to be saved and filled with the Holy Ghost.
