Hot Springs Trip: Thank you for your prayers and support!
There were so many divine appointments that we can’t possibly share all of them. But perhaps a few. We are more than sure that the LORD led us to Hot Springs Arkansas this past weekend. Many were ministered to. On this trip dozens and dozens of lost souls were reached with the convicting law and Gospel of Christ. The central blessing, as we believe the LORD ordered, was the edification of members of His beloved body we were privileged to meet and fellowship with. One such man was a 62 year old brother who is a Vietnam Vet and also been a minister on the streets for many, many years. Part of our serving him was simply to listen to him speak about the things that still deeply burden his heart concerning the war he fought in and how killed nearly 200 men, including accidentally killing an American soldier. He recounted these things with tears flowing down his face and as he broke out into crying several times. We listened, prayed and comforted this precious man and brother in Christ. He seemed to be very refreshed to have been able to vent these things to other believers. This man is certainly on-fire for Jesus. He told us that he distributes 1,000 Gospel tracts daily at times. He’s called “the chaplain of Hot Springs Arkansas.” As the LORD would have it, Aaron and I encountered this man as he was sitting on a street bench on the main street at about midnight Saturday night. Well, we finally dropped him off at nearly 4 AM Sunday morning. We were blessed to supply him with nearly all of the remaining supply of Gospel tracts. Our prayerful goal is be a supplier to this man as we have been blessed to do with many ministries of Gospel workers. Please lift up this need to print more soul-winning Gospel tracts. This beloved brother went on and on about how he knows God sent us to Hot Springs to refresh him. Well, we are not worthy! Jesus be praised!
Aaron and I encountered an unsaved college man named Chris who was in town for the weekend with his secular band. He was the guitarist. They were playing in Hot Springs. Well, Aaron and I were able to clearly communicate God’s Word to this man and his desperate need to repent of his sins and be saved through Jesus Christ. He was very, very receptive and asked several questions which we answered from Holy Scripture. Chris was truly listening. We asked if we could pray with him before we departed and we lifted him up to the LORD in prayer asking God to convict him of his sins and bring him to repentance and salvation.
Aaron and I were also approached by a new age, transcendental meditation teacher named Al. Well, I think you could say that this man bit off more than he could chew. We preached Christ to this man and the law of God to convict him. He was overwhelmed with divine truth and conceded. God is so good! Our prayer is that this man will be blessed and choose to hear the voice of the LORD to repent and believe the Gospel.
Many tracts were passed out and people spoken to about their sin and the only nail-scarred risen Savior – Jesus Christ. To edify and warn Christ’s body, we were blessed to give out several booklets by brother Mark Case (proclaimit.org).
We also recorded several videos of Word teaching. These are being edited and should be available soon.
Shay is another brother we met. He and his friend began speaking to us when they saw us studying God’s Word. Shay is a praise leader and seems to be full of the Spirit. He has traveled the world serving Christ. Well, after extensive fellowship, Aaron recorded (on video) a brief conversation between Shay and I and we will be sending it out shortly (hopefully it came out okay).
Thank you for praying and to those who helped with love offerings. “For we are labourers together with God.” (1 Corinthians 3:9)
Going to Wisconsin for ministry the whole week next week and then to San Antonio and Austin, etc.
Upcoming Missionary Exploits this Month:
- Texoma, Oklahoma/Texas (this week)
- Madison, Wisconsin (all next week)
- San Antonio/Austin, Texas (later this month)
There is much opportunity to participate. Here are some specifics to pray with us about:
- Pray for finances to print all 5 of the Gospel tracts to win souls. We are passing them out daily on the streets and also supplying other Gospel workers nationwide with tracts (appr. $5,500 needed).
- Pray for more and more open doors and open hearts for the ministry of God’s Word.
- Pray for health of the car we travel in – it has 309,000 miles on it (God is able).
- Lost souls to be continually saved and believers to become Christ’s true disciples (Matt. 28:18-20; Mk. 16:15-20). God is able!
The giving of the saints is pivotal. It determines if we can remain afloat to minister, to print Gospel tracts, and keep things flowing with the minimal operating expenses.
God is good to us all precious saints! We are a team together. The Bible teaches us that ALL who participate in the work of Christ are rewarded the same and rewarded both now and for eternity! (1 Sam. 30:24; Jn. 4:36)
The LORD bless each of us to fear His holy name and to walk in His wisdom, investing each day and each dollar wisely for His eternal glory!
