45 people from around the country have flocked to Devils Lake this week to share the gospel with the Lake Region community. It's part of a nationwide effort to strengthen the tie between churches and local residents.

Members of the group have been visiting the Lake Region at various times since September. This week 45 members are visiting towns all over the Lake Region and sharing with church members and everyone else they can in communities. They say their main goal is to find out how they can pray for locals and show love to the community. For "time to revive" members, it's a labor of love. Kyle Lance Martin, Time to Revive, "We've brought folks from Minnesota, Indiana, Michigan, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona. Folks flew in from Seattle. And they all come in on their own dime. They all stay in local homes. Nobody's paid them, because they feel God has called them to come in and just bless the community."

The group plans to return in July with hundreds of members to pray with and for the Lake Region community. Their current trip lasts through Saturday. All prayer events are open to the public and can be found on their website, www.revivedevilslake.com.
