How The Lord Used Us In October of 2016

Hello Partners in Ministry:

Thank you for your prayers and financial support that allows us the privilege of serving Christ full time. Our God is at work and our prayers have been answered as we had an incredible month of ministry. Here’s what our Lord allowed us to do:

• Completed 7 MAD Live Events

• Preached 5 times this month

• Spoke to 168 men at 1 Iron Sharpens Iron Conference in Rochester, NY

• Spoke at the SBC Chilhowee Association’s Annual Convention in Maryville, TN

The Holy Spirit worked in people’s hearts and we were blessed to see 18 people come to faith in Christ in October!

On a personal note, I was released from Physical Therapy on October 18th. I still need to do therapy as the knee is still not 100%, but I won’t have to do it at the therapist’s facility at a cost of $308/week. I can do the exercises on my own. Please continue to pray for healing. Details are listed below in the prayer requests section of our report.

A couple of MAD Grad testimonies to encourage you and praise God for:

“Today, I was able to share my first Pocket New Testament tract. I have a very good Christian friend who is the primary artist for one of DC Comics main comic books. Because he’s my friend, I try to buy all his stuff…support your friends! Anyway, I’ve been visiting a comic book shop in Elmira, NY for well over a year now. Over the time, I’ve become casual friends with the shop owner. Today was one of the rare times when no one else was in the store and I was able to talk to him about what he believes. He immediately started to cry and talked about his upbringing in a Wesleyan church but he confessed he knows he is away from the Lord. We talked for 15-20 minutes and then some folks started entering the store (it’s a busy place). I explained the gospel to him, which he was at least familiar with, and asked him if I could pray with him. He was glad to and wanted to walk out to my car outside. We went outside, I prayed with him, and gave him one of the Pocket New Testaments…one with a cover about “where is my life going?” which is something he’s struggling with right now. He hugged me…twice!...and expressed his thanks. I’m not sure what God is doing in this man’s life, but I know that God is working in this man’s life. I am incredibly thankful for this opportunity today, for this resource, and for your training a couple of weekends ago. Thank you, Don. This is lifestyle evangelism and I want to live the rest of my life like this. Praise the Lord!”

“Hi Don, hope you are well. Sure hope to see you again soon, so much to praise the Lord over. Don, I cant thank you enough for your ministry. It has helped me soooo much to share the Gospel with confidence along with the tracts. I am using them in the prison now and God continues to open more doors for us to witness to. Lets plan an evangelizing ride soon! :)”

PRAYER REQUESTS

Thank you for your continued prayers regarding our schedule. As you can see, God is at work answering them! There are some incredible doors being opened. Please pray for the requests below:

• For continued healing of my left knee and in addition, my right leg. I have been having pain from the hip socket down to the knee in the right leg, caused by limping and favoring the left leg for 6 months. The pain has been in the socket and down into the quadriceps muscle. I cannot stand for even two worship songs because of the pain. I have been using a stool to teach and I get up and down as necessary.

• Cathy has been having pain in both feet. Please pray for healing for her as well.

• For God’s wisdom and guidance as we need to create some contracts for people who may be helping with the ministry. We want to protect the intellectual properties of the ministry and every person involved. See below:

o For the Lord’s Guidance as we have someone who wants to teach the MAD Live Event in Spanish speaking churches.

o For a great turn out for our first MAD event on the west coast. The MAD training we’re doing on January 7th is supposed to have representation from 65 Nazarene churches. Doors could be opening up for many MAD Live Events to be done in California.

o I will be doing the MAD Live Event for 79 SBC Pastors in TN on February 2nd. This could open the doors for us to teach in each of these churches.

• Pray for our schedule. We continue to work to fill 2017!

Love in Christ,

 

Cathy and Don
