Wow, I can’t believe how quick this year is going. I guess that the saying is true “Time flies when your having fun.” God has been very busy in our lives and our ministry since the last letter. I ended my last letter stating that I was on my way to Laurel, Montana to help conduct a VBS for First Baptist Church of Laurel, Montana.
God truly did a great work while there in Laurel. I was able to see souls saved and Christians encouraged. It is always a pleasure to be out west, especially in Laurel, Montana. After spending ten days in Montana I headed back home for a few days until my next flight to Greenville, SC.
I flew to Greenville to assist my long time friend, Evangelist Mike Washer in a decipleship camp for his ministry National Hoops. The Lord truly blessed as Mike and I preached salvation and the Christian life to fifty-eight basketball players from around the nation. God allowed me to be involved in the lives of numerous teenagers that otherwise I would not have had an opportunity to minister to. Many souls responded to salvation and the Lord’s cleansing power for His children.
After camp at Greenville my family and I were able to be home for VBS at Victory Baptist Church in Chester Springs, PA, our home church. I had the opportunity to speak to the teenagers and my wife and I were part of the skits. I was Marshall Mellow, the town marshall, and she had a crush on me in the skit as Miss Polly Pureheart. I was able to again see teenagers saved. I do enjoy seeing teenagers ,who have their whole life ahead of them, come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Three weeks ago, my family and I, continued our summer camp ministry in Iowa. I had the privilege to preach at Living Waters in Bonaparte, IA for both juniors week and senior high week. It was a privilege to minister alongside the director, Pastor Aaron Helterbran, and his staff. God again showed Himself faithful in the saving of souls and the building up of the believer.
I am currently writing this letter from 30,000 feet, traveling from Philadelphia, PA to Omaha, NE after seeing God work near Quakertown, PA at a teen/ family camp for Pastor Dave Smith and his assistant, Pastor Jonathan Stockton. What a wonderful week!
Please continue to pray. Schools will be back in session soon and the opportunity to approach, speak to, and schedule our program, Consider Character, with principals is around the corner.
