Indianapolis 500 Outreach
This year proved to be an amazing year of ministry at races in Indianapolis. It just seems that each year keeps getting better. We have heard several testimonies of how God showed His grace and mercy to those people we ministered to on the streets. The people were eager and hungry for the good news of Jesus Christ as we witnessed several people give their hearts to Christ.
I want to thank everyone that helped make this year an incredible success. Without all of you, we wouldn't be able to do fulfill the call that God has on this ministry. It's always amazing to see how God uses so many of us from all over to accomplish great and mighty things for the Kingdom.
We are already gearing up for next year which will also mark the 100th running of the races! It sure to be an exciting time, and we are looking for to seeing all you back again!
Once again, thank you for all that you do!
