THE BOOK OF ACTS IS REAL!
OUTREACH WEEK AT UNLV
By Dave Earley
After our Jericho Week of Prayer on the campus of UNLV we focused on outreach. This past week was the first week of classes at UNLV. As an official university club, Grace City UNLV is given access to share freely with students in the Free Speech Zone.
Positioned beside the Legalize Marijuana tent we set up three stations. One Grace City UNLV tent had a table with the snow cone machine. It was very popular. Another tent had several Waldo-ish Campus Guides. The third station gave students a chance to sit down and be complimented.
Hundreds of students were served and given info about our on campus Bible Studies. Also several were saved and healed.
One student named David is Jewish. On his first day in the compliment chair, Graham discussed the differences between Christianity and Judaism with him. They read Isiah 53 together. The next day he came back limping after having hurt his ankle the night before. He said that he wanted to see if the book of Acts was real.

It Happened Before
2,000 years ago, Peter and John were going to the temple to pray and encountered a lame man on the way. The guy was begging for money,
Acts 3:6-8 But Peter said, “I don’t have silver or gold, but what I have, I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!” 7 Then, taking him by the right hand he raised him up, and at once his feet and ankles became strong. 8 So he jumped up, stood, and started to walk, and he entered the temple complex with them—walking, leaping, and praising God.
Everyone knew this guy because he had sat in the center of town for years begging and now he is healed.
Acts 3:12 When Peter saw this, he addressed the people: “Men of Israel, why are you amazed at this? Or why do you stare at us, as though we had made him walk by our own power or godliness? …16 By faith in His [Jesus] name, His name has made this man strong, whom you see and know. So the faith that comes through Him has given him this perfect health in front of all of you.
Then Peter went on and preached the gospel to the large crowd.
Acts 4:4 But many of those who heard the message believed, and the number of the men came to about 5,000.
God Has Not Changed
The same God who healed and saved this man 2,000 years ago, can save and heal people today.
May God’s work grow and multiply here until Las Vegas is as saturated with Jesus as Jerusalem was 2,000 years ago when thousands became Christ followers!
