I truly believe that the Lord is using the common ground of the outdoors to reach outdoorsman for the Lord. Churches are reaching thousands of men across the country with Sportsman's Banquets, clay shoots, archery shoots, etc. Godly hunters are using the time alone in the woods and on the water with lost friends to share about Jesus. God is also using our ministry and we must do a better job sharing those stories. So our blog series "The Harvest" will look at individuals that have either spoke with us in person, emailed, or messaged us via social media to tell us what God has spoken to them through our show. We get 60-150 messages a week during the season, some are just "at a boy" type messages but some are truly incredible movements of God and we want to share those with you.
So this installment of The Harvest is a story of a man from Indiana. He watched Final Descent Outdoors for the first time and had this to say following the devotion at the end of the episode.
"I stumbled onto your show today on the Pursuit Channel. I really enjoyed it but at the end you shared about God and specifically about going to church. I wasn't expecting that at all. Never really seen anything like that but it really spoke to me. I've been married to my wife for 17 years and have three great kids. They go to church every Sunday but I don't go with them except on holidays. I wanted to write you and let you know that this Sunday I am going to go to church with my family outside of a holiday for the first time in eight years. Thank you for your show. We need more shows like this."
I am a big hairy man but I cry like an emotional pregnant woman and this was one of those moments. It's not easy producing TV. Our goal has always been to create great content to then tie it all together with a Gospel centered devotion at the end of every episode. We have not wavered on that in 6 years. These emails are why we do this, these messages are The Harvest.
