How the Lord used us in June 2017
6/18/2017 10:20:00 PM by: Don

Hello Brothers and Sisters!

June is a VERY slow month training-wise for us.  We completed one MAD Live Event in Altoona, PA, and I preached at the morning and evening services at our home church in TN.

Our new off-road ministry is going VERY well.  Praise the Lord!  We have Gospel displays in 9 different locations, including off-road parks and campgrounds, ATV dealerships, and some retail stores.  Every place I have asked, the business people were enthusiastic about having one on their counter.  I left 30 Gospels at each location as a starting point and Lord willing, we’ll have to refill soon!  On one of my first days on the trail, I met one of the ride group members named Jim. He was originally from MA, recently retired from Fedex and now lives in TN. I shared the Gospel with him and gave him one of our new Off Road Gospels of John. He thanked me and he ended up being the ride leader for the day. About 80% of the trails were flooded and muddy. It was a lot of fun but VERY dirty.  We also had a paraplegic named Jeremy come along. He had been paralyzed in a single vehicle motorcycle crash 13 years ago. I was so impressed with this guy! He had hand controls and drove a Yamaha side by side everywhere we went. When we finished the ride I was able to share the Gospel with him and I also gave him one of the Gospels of John. I also shared with a man loading his machine onto the trailer in the parking lot at the trail head. We headed to town for dinner, and I saw two police officers leaving the restaurant we were planning on having dinner at. I walked up to them in their squad car, introduced myself, told them about my law enforcement background, thanked them for their service, and asked if I could pray for them. They both excitedly said, "Yes"! I asked what their first names were and prayed for Travis and Dixie. I gave each of them one of the "Police Lives Matter" Gospel cards that I carry with me and we went into the restaurant to eat.

In the restaurant we got a waitress named Chasidy and I asked how we could pray for her. She gave me a request and kept coming back to the table during the meal to thank me for praying for her. I left her a Gospel of John with a personal note inside and a great tip.

Here’s a testimony I recently received:

“Hey Don, Just wanted you to know that I got to talk with a coworker about salvation yesterday. He says he believes in Jesus but I don't think he has surrendered his life to Him yet. I explained to him that believing is not enough but we must accept Jesus as our savior. I just remember the analogy you gave about believing in a parachute and actually putting it on. Thank you again for the training for how to reach folks. This world is full of lost and hurting people that only God can heal. You and Cathy keep up the good work!”
