2018 Year in Review

23 01 2019

This was my 2nd full year in ministry and the Lord gave many wonderful opportunities for personal growth as well as ministry opportunity. Ministry is more than numbers and although I do want to share some numbers reflecting the work God is doing through us I want to share what has happened to us as a family this year.

We had the opportunity to minister on the streets of Bakersfield and in 2 California institutions. I was blessed to share the Gospel at the NBA All Star weekend in Los Angeles, and the PAC 12 Championship game in Santa Clara, California. We had the opportunity to minister in Minneapolis, Minnesota during the Superbowl and I was even blessed to meet John Piper a personal hero of the faith on that visit.

We shared the Gospel at the Bakersfield Christmas parade while also preaching and tracting weekly downtown. We were able to share clothes with the needy of Bakersfield and help feed the homeless in both Bakersfield and Fresno. I visited 2 of our supporting churches and filled the pulpit at our home church several times.

My wife served as my mom’s full time caregiver for most of the year and served faithfully during that time. The Lord took mom home in September. As hard as it was I have learned that in all of His decisions God is good. In that same month the Lord added sweetness to our lives by bringing us 2 foster kids. A 2 year old girl and a 3 year old boy. We are praying for a chance to adopt these two.

They have added so much to our family and we hope to live out a picture of the Gospel with them. We recall that God the Father has adopted us and called us by His own name. We were without family or plea and were made partakers and given an inheritance in the family of God. We want to add them to our family and call them by our name as well.

I’ll end with a few of the numbers the Lord allowed us to achieve for His glory.
Bibles distributed: 201
John/Romans: 340
Called on the Lord for salvation: 14
Men who were burdened about their souls: 28
Men who attended services: 1,164
Clothes distributed: 1,150
Food distributed: 309
Tracts distributed: 4,472
Christian books to inmates: 55
Correspondence with inmates: 6

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
