WYNNEWOOD—Farmers in Oklahoma understand the best time of years to sow seed to get the best results. A collection of churches near Wynnewood recently teamed up to sow seeds of the Gospel.
The Serve Over Wynnewood (or “S.O.W.”) Week took place June 9-12 and included several churches, including Wynnewood, First; Pauls Valley, Trinity; Sulphur, Crossway. The week included times of worship, service evangelism and more.
“We had 75 volunteers who completed 22 different projects here in town,” said Jarrod Kendall, pastor of Wynnewood, First. “Eleven of those projects were for residents in our community, and 11 of those were for Wynnewood Public Schools.”
The volunteers took on projects including renovating and replacing front porches; building a wheel chair ramp; removing a torn down house; installing insulation in an attic, replacing flooring; painting and power washing and painting around the school; and more.
“The Gospel was shared with each project we did for homeowners,” he said.
Kendall is grateful to the Lord for the partnership among churches. “We also had a revival going on from Sunday—Wednesday, with Dwayne Johnson (Trinity, Pauls Valley) preaching and Mark Williams (Crossway Sulphur) leading worship. We saw one salvation during the revival and one on the following Sunday (both adults).”
Kendall expects the Gospel seeds that were planting during S.O.W. Week only to grow.
“Since that time, we have seen several more saved, and we are currently baptizing every week in the month of July,” he said.
As the Lord continues to bless these evangelism efforts, the people in the Wynnewood and surrounding area could feel the positive effects for many years to come. Above all, those who made professions of faith in Christ will reap the eternal reward that only Jesus brings.
