Church Plants Start From a Visit to a Pub

i like this…

Meet Emmanuel. He is a young boy (20), raised in a remote village in mountainous western Kenya. Dawson met him one night when he intentionally went into a pub in Kitale and paid the entire bill for all who were drinking there. Of course, those customers couldn’t believe it…a pastor coming into a bar and then paying for their drinks, and even some of them like Emmanuel high on drugs as well. Details escape me, but the end result was that this young man felt the love of God that Dawson had for him. It was enough love that he would go out of his way, into a bar and sit and just be with, not preach to, a bunch of derelicts, deserters and rejects of society.
