20 Degrees on the Street

Dan and I spent a few chilly hours in Downtown Huntington.  I had the opportunity to chat with Jason, who said he was a Christian but couldn't communicate the gospel at all. We had a great conversation and I hope he will consider the things of which we spoke.

Dan was able to talk to Russell a local homeless man due to some personal circumstances.. Dan was encouraged by his attitude being positive. He talked to him about his spiritual state and Russell stated he was saved.. Dan had a really good conversation with him. Dan also had a few others stop by and offer and handshake and words of kindness for being out there sharing the Gospel.  Pray for Jason, Russell, and all those who received Gospel tracts. All for His Glory!!

Black Friday 2010

Rain soaked Bill and Leah

Brandy and Leah...ready to pass out some tracts!

Open-Air Bill

Gerald, Leah, and Brandy
We had a great Thanksgiving. After spending time with friends and family we had planned since last year (Black Friday 2009)  to deliver the gospel to all the people waiting in lines at Toys R Us and Best Buy.  This year Bill and I had three new proclaimers with us.  Gerald Foster, Leah Sikes, and Brandy Riley.  Bill open-aired the crowd while Leah, Brandy and Gerald handed out tracts, ect.   Then the rain that time they had already handed out over 500 tracts and hundreds more heard the gospel preached in the open-air.  Bill handed out tracts to the Best Buy crowd while I open aired. Bill then closed out this years Black Friday with some open air and then we went home to dry off.  What a great time of fellowship. We are already looking forward to next year. Praise the Lord for this opportunity. It's such a joy to share the gospel.!!

I Have Many In This City Who Are My People. Acts 18:10 - Charles Spurgeon

This should be a great encouragement to try to do good, since God has among the vilest of the vile, the most reprobate, the most debauched and drunken, an elect people who must be saved. When you take the Word to them, you do so because God has ordained you to be the messenger of life to their souls, and they must receive it, for so the decree of predestination runs. They are as much redeemed by blood as the saints before the eternal throne. They are Christ's property, and yet perhaps they are lovers of the ale-house, and haters of holiness; but if Jesus Christ purchased them he will have them. God is not unfaithful to forget the price which his Son has paid. He will not suffer his substitution to be in any case an ineffectual, dead thing. Tens of thousands of redeemed ones are not regenerated yet, but regenerated they must be; and this is our comfort when we go forth to them with the quickening Word of God.
Nay, more, these ungodly ones are prayed for by Christ before the throne. "Neither pray I for these alone," saith the great Intercessor, "but for them also which shall believe on me through their word." Poor, ignorant souls, they know nothing about prayer for themselves, but Jesus prays for them. Their names are on his breastplate, and ere long they must bow their stubborn knee, breathing the penitential sigh before the throne of grace. "The time of figs is not yet." The predestinated moment has not struck; but, when it comes, they shall obey, for God will have his own; they must, for the Spirit is not to be withstood when he cometh forth with fulness of power-they must become the willing servants of the living God. "My people shall be willing in the day of my power." "He shall justify many." "He shall see of the travail of his soul." "I will divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong."
