Downtown Huntington - June 2010












Dan, Bill and myself headed to downtown Huntington. Vernon had a great conversation with a guy named Justin. He said "He was saved". When Vernon asked him How? Why? and How he could be saved Justin couldn't tell him. Justin was at a loss for words. He knew the lingo but that's it. Vernon spent the rest of his time explaining the gospel to Justin. Justin said "It makes sense" and was given a Bible. Pray that Justin would come to repentance and faith in the Savior. Dan spoke with a few people today one on one, and also handed out several Gospel tracts. One man that Dan spoke with was very confident that he was going to Heaven and assured Dan that he reads his Bible everyday and prays. Dan asked him if he was born again, and his response was that he did not identify with man made religion and was secure in 'his' beliefs and ways.. Dan told him that Jesus said, "You must be born again". At that point the man said he had to get to lunch and abruptly walked away. Dan also spoke to a gentleman that claimed that you get a belief (or in his mind saved) in you when you are little. Dan was not sure where he was going with that one, because Dan tried to speak to the man but he left quickly as well. Dan also had a few conversations with some beleivers(Kathleen and Jo). Bill had several conversations throughout the city as he passed out gospel tracts. later, We all went to Ritter Park and read John 3 and presented the Gospel in the Open-Air. Praise the Lord for this opportunity. Keep Fishin.

Solo at Ritter Park - June 2010

Got a late start today....I decided to head out to Ritter Park to share the gospel. When I arrived I saw people walking, running and just relaxing. I read John 3 and presented the gospel in the open air. One guy who was running by shouted "Praise the Lord" and smiled. I appreciated the encouragement. I packed up my things and was walking towards the exit of the park when I heard someone say "excuse me, can I get one of those Bibles from you?" She said,"My name is Dorothy, I was listening to you while I sat on the bench over there." (I couldn't even see her over there) We both sat down at a picnic table nearby where I was able to present the gospel and answer the questions she had. She understood the gospel. Please pray that she will come to repentance and faith in the Savior. Thank you Lord for that opportunity to proclaim Your Truth. Keep fishin!!

St. George Street - St. Augustine, FL

I just wanted to share this e-mail with everyone. This team in North Florida continues to grow as people continue to step out of their comfort zones to share the Gospel with the lost. May we risk it all for His Glory!!



Greetings Saints,

Yesterday, the Lord Jesus Christ provided another beautiful day in St. Augustine to proclaim the light of the Gospel of His glory. He brought 13 people together from 6 churches for the single purpose of proclaiming the Gospel. The Lord blessed us with a permit to use amplification and a gazebo from which to set up our base of operation (our usual designated spot is in direct sunlight). The gazebo was slightly elevated and had a roof which provided shade. Thank you Lord for even orchestrating the little details.
The group sang songs, read scripture, preached the Gospel, handed out tracts and witnessed one-to-one and to small groups. It was a great day exalting the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and being with His people. Thank you for praying for the event. Pray that the Lord of the Harvest would send out more laborers into the harvest field. May we grow, by His grace, to love Him more and to those created in His image. To Him be the glory for ever and ever.
Lord willing, we will return to St. George Street on July 10th from 11am-6pm. We invite you to prayerfully consider joining us. Please don't feel as though you must engage in open air preaching or any other activity.
Simply coming alongside others is a blessing.
If you need a ride or would like to caravan with us, we will be leaving the church parking lot at 10:30. If you need to call us for any reason, you may reach us at 349-3106. Looking forward to laboring with you.


Worthy is the Lamb


John
