Tonight at lifegroup we did a “Treasure Hunt.” The basic idea is that people are God’s treasure. So we ask God to show us who He wants us to share with and then we try to find them and share His love with them.

We spend some time waiting on God to give us names of people, their appearances, locations, needs, and/or anything else that He wants to share. We write down the things we feel like God is highlighting and then break up into small groups and try to find the people on our lists.

Tonight we had a lot of fun. There were a few people that we talked to that weren’t interested in receiving prayer. However, we saw God do a lot of cool things too. My favorite quote of the night was when my friend, Tana and I were trying to share with a man in a thrift store. The man was from Peru and (in Spanish) told us that he didn’t speak much English. Tana replies, “No problema” and then continues to speak to him in Spanish. That was pretty sweet. I forgot that she knew Spanish. It turns out that he has been pretty lonely since moving to Colorado and has kind of fallen away from God. He let us pray for him and he was really blessed.

We went to the mall and one of the things I had on my treasure hunt list was a “red scarf.” We walked past a scarf store and I mentioned to Tana that I had scarf on my list and there was probably a red one in the store somewhere. So, we entered the store which was empty except for the girl behind the counter. We told her what we were doing and asked if there was any way that we could pray for her. She let us pray for her and then we asked her if anyone had ever told her about Jesus’ love for her. She said she had heard about it at school and in books before. So I asked if I could quickly share with her and she said yes. So I shared the gospel with her. She said she had never heard anything like that before. So I asked her if this was something that she wants for her life and if she wanted to make Jesus her Lord and Savior right now. She said yes! So we prayed right there and afterward she told us that it was kind of funny because her name actually means “prayers.”

Such a great day! Thank you Jesus for your love for the people in Fort Collins!
