The Gospel Beacon (August-September 2017)

7 10 2017

Well summer has come to an end and I’m glad to see it go. I’m not made for 110 degree heat. I’m also the biggest Christmas nerd in the world so fall and winter are definitely my seasons. In August I celebrated my 36th birthday which tells me how quickly time marches on. In September my wife and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary.

In August our Pastor, Fred Fies had his last service at McKee Road Baptist Church. I was thankful to serve with him for 7 years. We began our search for a new pastor so please keep that in prayer.

In September I resigned my Sunday School class after 6 years because I felt it wasn’t fair for them to not know from week to week if I’ll be there since we travel to churches to raise support. I’m also ministering in the prison several Sundays each month.

Street Ministry:
We were able to continue our street ministry at the Downtown Bakersfield Courthouse and bus station. We gave out about 300 tracts and had several good conversations with people about their souls. We also joined some friends at the Santa Monica pier for a day of evangelism. we preached the Gospel and gave out around 600 tracts. We were able to send another street evangelist 48 Bibles for his ministry.

Prison Ministry:
My work at North Kern State Prison has been truly blessed. We have seen 4 men call on the Lord for salvation as well as 9 others who were stirred about their souls. I gave away 40 copies of Romans and 52 Bibles as well. Around 100 incarcerated men heard the Gospel preached.

Other News:
Keep us in prayer as we take care of my mom in our home. We have had trouble with her insurance and our income has been heavily drained due to my wife leaving work to care for her. Mom is still in good spirits and a joy to have around the house. Her spirit has not been hampered by her physical problems.

Please consider supporting us financially as well as with your prayers as we desire to serve the Lord full time in the Gospel ministry. There are so many people who need to hear the Gospel and so little time to labor and serve the Lord in this life.

“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.” C.H. Spurgeon
