Salvation Is Here

Hello again. I had our regular meeting with the men in the village Monday and it was great. We got some clothes from the thrift store in Ford City and gave them to the men. It looked like Christmas in the village!! One guy wore all three shirts on top of the one he was already wearing as he left the meeting. They were soo happy and proud of the new clothes. God is good. And we also had one of the men get saved!!! Praise the Lord! I preached about the Holy Spirit from John 14 and 16. They were very attentive that night and answering a lot of the questions! I love it when they start leaning in and having that look of anticipation as they wait for me to answer the question. Some times I feel sorry for them b/c they are relying on ME to answer their questions and look at ME as if I know more. Bless their hearts. But I always explain to them that the answers are in the Bible from God and that night I was able to explain that we receive answers and guidance from the Holy Spirit that lives in us as well. This guy was very excited to receive the Holy Spirit that night and his brother let out a "YES" when he realized his brother wanted to know Jesus. He prayed with me and Jorge and then did not stop smiling even when he left. So praise the Lord. Pray for Fransisco and his new spiritual life please.
But today there was no work in the village for the vacation week they are having here. So Brandi told me that I needed to go do something instead of sitting at home b/c "there is just not something right bout that." I smacked her around and tied her to the pole outside. HA Just kidding. I did do things for the ministry and a lot of planning for the future ministry and other stuff. So that to Brandi! HA (And she is correcting my grammar and misspells as I am writing this.) So we are doing good and "working hard" here. God is faithful and surprisingly enough can show himself and his power more and more the more and more we get out of the way and humble ourselves and let him do it. Learning this more and more. Well...there you go.

AKA The really hard worker!


  1. That is awesome! Man, I want a thankful and appreciative heart like that - that is so precious he wore all three shirts!!!! I added Fransisco to my prayer list!! That's awesome!!!!!
    Tell Brandi the Lord does tell us there is a "time for everything" including rest and "being still" before Him :P
    BTW - you heard about Wayne and Sandra, right? isn't that awesome!!!!!!!!!!! I am bursting with joy for them!!! I am soo glad the Lord gave them that desire of their heart because they are amazing people and will be amazing parents!!! love you and miss you:)

  2. Yes they sent us an email and told us!! That rocks. I sure hope everything goes smoothly and they can get her soon! Their world is going to change big time!! But for the good. But God is good!
