Trunk or Treat with JESUS

In January 2007, seven people from the Houston Living Word Church of the Nazarene began praying about supporting JESUS Film Harvest Partners and the possibility of having a JESUS Film showing in their own community. On October 31, 2007 (Halloween night), the church opened their parking lot and hosted a "Trunk or Treat" event, combining an opportunity to give out candy and to show the JESUS Film at two locations on their property (one in Spanish and one in English). More than 400 people, with many kids in costume, attended and 25 people gave their hearts to Jesus. Initial discipleship contacts to all 25 took place the following evening. Pastor Scott Rainey and Chuck Watson from JESUS Film Harvest Partners fasted and prayed for 40 days prior to the showing.
