Shawnee State University









Dan, Bill and myself decided to head up to Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio. We had made prior arrangements with campus security before our arrival. Security was watching our every move from the beginning at least for the first 45 minutes. Once they figured out that we weren't causing a commotion they left. ( It could have been the 25 degree temps not counting the wind chill) We met up with Pastor Gary Chaffins and Tim Duduit from Grace Community Church of Portsmouth, Ohio. Things started out slow but then kicked into high gear. We had several conversations and in over a few hours get the gospel into over 500 peoples hands. Dan spoke with Amber who said she was a Christian but fell away from God for about a year, then God brought her back again this year.. He asked her how she would explain to someone about how to become a Christian.. She was really unclear about it, so Dan took her through the Law and Gospel, and left her with the thoughts of how we have broken God's Holy law and then explained the Gospel. Amber left having a clear description of the Gospel. Pray that Amber would examine herself and see if she is in the faith. 2 Cor 13:5. Pray for all who recieved the gospel and that many would come to repentance and faith in the Savior.
We then all got lunch at Hickie's Hamburger Inn and then went back to Grace Community Church to just hang out a bit. Gary and Tim were really encouraging to us. They both have a genuine concern for the lost and a desire for sound teaching. If your ever in the area of Portsmouth, Ohio visit Grace Community Church and you will be fed well. Keep Fishin!!

Good going, Vernon! Good going, guys! You're out there, despite the elements. Finally, some pix with weather I can relate to! :)

I'm still pinned down with this sciatica thing. Very anxious to get back on the streets with the gospel.Ugh!

But this is where the Lord has me for now. That's His business. I ask no questions.

Bless on, y'all!
