May 1997 Update

“How, then can they call on the one they have not believed in?” In April and May alone, over 1100 people have heard the message of God’s love through Chicago Executive Ministries outreaches. There have been 2 outreach dinners and 3 Straight Talk men’s breakfasts. Nearly 130 decisions were made to accept Christ and over 100 more that want further information or join a Bible study.

“And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?” Without groups of men taking on ownership, giving of their time and effort to put them together and Table Hosts buying tables and inviting their non-Christian friends to come, the breakfasts would not be possible.

The Outreach Dinners are possible because of our Host team couples who not only invite their friends and peers, but also put their names on the invitations and the check to pay for it all.

We were excited also to have 6 couples interested to be trained as hosts here in Chicago representing not only Illinois but Wisconsin, Texas and California.

“And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” Jeff Siemen, ex Viking football player, Bill McCartney, ex football coach; Charlie Duke, Astronaut; Tom Hamilton, retired lawyer; Col. Nimrod McNair, business executive—influencers reaching influencers…think…what potential to touch the lives of countless others…..!! They shared from their hearts powerful messages of how their lives have been changed after coming to know Christ.

“And how can they preach unless they are sent?” Thank you for sending us! With your prayers and financial support you enable us to do what we do.

“As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.'” Here’s a sampling of what was written on the comment cards:

“Excellent dinner and people. Talk excellent – I am overjoyed that I was invited.”

“I feel that I’m on a journey with Jesus that I don’t quite understand.”

“His words really got my attention. I’m at a point of hopelessness in my life and need a focus.”

You indeed make a difference! A huge difference!! PRAY for these people and the others, that God would continue to touch and change each life.
