WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR YOUR CONTINUING INTERCESSION AND SUPPORT

Our hearts are rejoicing in the special ‘Gospel partnership’ that so many of you have continually demonstrated to our life and ministry. This precious relationship reminds me of the ‘Philippian’s Gospel cooperation and community’, which the apostle Paul enjoyed with that first-century group of disciples! There are so many churches and individuals who regularly tell us that, ‘they are faithfully interceding for these various Gospel opportunities, as well as for us personally’. It is so precious to know that brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus are praying for us and supporting our passion to be ‘channels of blessing’ to literally thousands of foreign pastors and church planters. We are so very thankful that our Lord has brought you alongside of us, to colabor for the great commission and the glory of God! There are three international conferences scheduled for the summer and fall. We deeply appreciate your prayers and support for these conferences; as well as the monthly support, which we provide for many church planters on the field. We love you in the Lord Jesus Christ. May each of us continue to testify concerning the reason for the confidence that we have in Christ.

CONFERENCES IN ALABAMA AND LOUISIANA!

The Lord blessed in tremendous ways, in both the ‘Christ-centered Discipleship’ conference at The Fellowship Church in Albertville, AL; as well as the teaching of ‘The Beatitudes’, at Providence Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, LA! Both conferences were extremely well attended, in spite of serious weather threats throughout both of the 2 weeks. One of many precious highlights was the conversion of a 70-year old man, whose name was George. God gave me the tremendous joy to be the ‘seed-sower of Gospel truth’ into George’s heart and mind, for two and a half hours (in my hotel lobby)! After proclaiming many truths surrounding the reality and the authentic evidences of true conversion, I urged George to seek the Lord while He may be found. Later that afternoon, He testified to his wife that he had been converted to Christ. When he shared his testimony of his “new birth” with his wife, she responded by saying, “Well George, I am lost”! She later indicated that she too had come to the Lord Jesus Christ in repentance and faith. There was also another young lady who announced that she had come to Jesus on His terms! Later that evening, George courageously took the microphone and freely shared his testimony, before a rejoicing congregation. Friends, both of these churches demonstrated a tremendous hunger and teachability throughout these ‘11 session’ conferences. It is so refreshing to teach a group of believers who are hungering and thirsting for God’s Word! God also gave me the personal privilege to teach “Christ-centered Evangelism” at Friendship Baptist Church in Baton Rouge, LA.

There was a tremendous attendance for every session, even in the face of the world's big party - (The super bowl)!!! It was so encouraging to see a group of believers that are hungry for the truths of biblical evangelism! God gave us a packed church of teachable believers, for 2 solid hours of teaching every night! The Spirit of God was speaking to many of us in a powerful way! I only wish that I had more space to share about the many various ways that our Lord has worked in these last 2 months!
