He Is There!

When I saw this video on Ray Comfort's blog, I was reminded again how very grateful I am for people who share the Gospel.

Although we can't always see the result of sharing, we can ALWAYS be sure that God is faithful to finish what He starts.

Isaiah 55:10-11
 "For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

After Shock...

After the the long wait at the car repair place, I was welcomed with another incredible opportunity. They had told me it would be 2 hours or so. Well, it was like airline time and went on for 4 hours. As I was paying for the work, 3 of the guys who work there said I was the best customer they had there for many days, I was nice to them, did not get upset about the long wait and I should have my picture posted there as 'Customer of the Day'

I explained how just a few years ago, I would never had been that calm and complacent. That God changed me and gave me a new heart and attitude. I told them that it is my belief in Jesus Christ and what He did on the Cross that changed me. I had already given them tracts and then gave them a Gospel message again and how if they would repent and put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ they could have a new life and an eternal one.

Praise the Lord for His Power!

Shocking Story!!

I was waiting for my car to have some work done and was looking for that 'just right' opportunity to witness. I knew I had only to wait a few minutes – or I would make my own opportunity. Then there is was - a new customer came in who was really loud and he knew the guys at the counter. He was telling them how he had been shocked while at work with a couple hundred volts. Of course he already had a lawyer and they were going to sue all these people.

I let him go on a while and tolerated the foul language for a while - then I interrupted and said I was electrocuted thirty years earlier. That got his attention along with the four guys behind the counter, and I asked where he would have gone if he had died. I got the usual "I hope heaven". I said that I would not want to rely on hope but certainty. I explained he could know 100% and gave them million dollar bills. They must read the back of the tract and they would know if they were really going to Heaven. Then I said, “Please go to”

A little while later the “shocked” guy sat near me and said the MDB was good. He even gets daily scripture sent to his phone. I said that's great but just get daily Scripture sent to his phone will not get him to heaven when he dies. I gave him a “Second Greatest Lie” book. He read a few pages and then slid it behind his back and changed chairs. God’s word will not return void!

Stay tuned…

A Worth-while Call.

I had to get some things straightened around with address changes this week.  While doing this, I encountered a young man via telephone named Vernon.    After he finished getting me sorted out I had a ready made chance to talk to him about more important things...

"Is there anything else I can help you with today?"

"Yes, there is.  I have a question for you that is off-topic.  What will be your destination after you die?"

"Well,..I believe I will go to Heaven." Vernon said.

"Why is that?"  I asked.

"Well, I grew up in church.  My Mother is the Pastor and my Father is the head-Deacon.  And I try to live right...and Jesus died for me."

"You know Vernon, those are great things, but what about your sins so far?  I mean, you've lied, right?  Can you remember how many times?"

"Uh, no I mean I've told white lies but I'm not sure how many and..."

"OK, so when I lie to you that makes me a ...?"

"Liar."  He said quickly.

"And have you ever taken something that was not yours?  Because you know that would make you a thief, right?"

"Right, yes I have..."

"So, you are going to stand before Jesus one day and give an account of YOUR life to you really think He's going to say, "Oh, I know Vernon's Mom and Dad, so he's in!"?"

"Well, no." He said slowly.

"Vernon you would be sentenced to Hell forever, does that bother you?"

"Yes it does."

"OK, I'm sure that you know what Jesus did to save you?"

"Right, He died on the cross for my sins" he exclaimed.

We went to a courtroom and he agreed that it would be great if so came along and paid a fine for him if he were found guilty and could not pay it."

"You'd get your life back...see?  I said.  "But you don't get out for a great apology or good deeds!"

"You know, you've made some really good points.  Yeah, I get it!"  He said thoughtfully.

I told Vernon that God would require both REPENTENCE and the transferring of the trust he had in his own goodness to trusting in Jesus Christ and what He did on that cross for us!

"You've got to take care of that Vernon-YOU.  There is a very good chance at this moment of YOU ending up in Hell-in spite of the positions that your Mom and Dad hold.  I hope you will think about this and if you get a chance go to

"Yes, I'm writing it down now.  Thank you for talking to me!"

"Yes and thanks for your help."

Right Or Wrong?

My friend "Jane" has a dilemma:

She comes into contact with many girls who are on their way to the abortion clinic.  They stop in, she does a pregnancy test, gives them resources and most times gets a good chance to talk to them about pro-choice vs. pro-life.  But she is stopped short of telling them the Truth as you see it on the video.

Right or Wrong?

Are you kidding me???

You know, lately I've heard people who say they are Christians, also say that they are pro-choice.

HUH?   Did I hear them right?  I'm sorry but to say you are a Christian and to say that you are PRO-CHOICE simply is wrong...those things are diametrically opposed.

Has anyone heard this...or is it just me?

Abortion...who knew?

So many discussions today about many people adamant about their viewpoint!  But what is YOUR viewpoint?   I'd love to hear it!!

To Move Or Not To Move

An update from Steve and Dayna:

Saturday at the Flea market was a blessing.  Many tract were distributed, and an incredible number of conversations took place.  Our Spanish friends from Calvary Baptist (south) joined us and desire to expand their ministry into other churches as the Lord leads.  God put Stefan in my path and he just about broke my heart.  He knows the gospel, knows the penalty for not surrendering to Christ and yet still won't give up something,.  When I asked him what on this planet was worth gambling his eternal soul for, he honestly had no answer,  I reminded him several times he is playing Russian roulette with his eternal destiny to which he agrees.  Pray for Stefan that God will open his heart and ears and mind to receive the gift of Jesus Christ's salvation.  Then 2 couples stopped by, believers all, and prayed with us for God to bless the ministry.  Then Jerry shows up.  Jerry, a believer, wants to set  up a Good Person booth at the Frontenac Flea market.  Considering the number of workers showing up now at Eaugallie, God may be directing such a move: I've been there once to survey the facilities which are not bad for males.  Port o' Potties (kin to Pati and Jack somehow) just don't work well for the ladies.  Prayer please for the Lord's guidance here

I really needed a haircut and this was supposed to be 'the place' to get a good one.  Darren was vey polite and right on time.  He told me that he was from Houston and had only recently moved to Dallas.  He explained how it happened that he knew the salon owner.  He said he liked Dallas so far, but missed his family.  Thanksgiving was only a few days away and he looked forward to seeing them all.

For the life of me I can't remember how our conversation started but...Darren told me he thought he was a pretty good guy.  I revealed to him the standard set by Jesus-perfection.

"Do you do this for a living?" Darren asked me.

"No but I am a Chaplain."  At this he seemed to drop his guard.  He looked a bit sadder.

"Well, you know some ministers say it's ok to be gay.  So, I guess it's just who you talk to."

Darren had fallen into the trap of listening to others instead of searching out Truth for himself.  "I would urge you to read the Bible yourself, Darren.  God makes it very clear that it is wrong.  But so are many things... we justify what we are comfortable with, while condemning others around us.  That's why we must make sure that we are clear about what the rules are.  God makes the rules about who will enter Heaven-not us.  I mean you wouldn't let a stranger who knocks on your door come in  and live with you just because someone else told him he could, would you?"


Darren was finished with my hair.  I gave him a good tip and a Second Greatest Lie Ever Told book.  He is certainly fighting an uphill battle, but it is one he has been fighting for a long time.

Romans 5:6  For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

Life or Death?

Although this happened a few months ago I feel that it is important enough to share:

When I met Jeanie, one of the first things I noticed was how young she was.  She told me she was 3 months pregnant and was coming in for a test to confirm this.  I administered the test and it came up positive.

She told me that she and her Mom had finally gotten a room in a local shelter.  "Before that we were living in the woods for 7 months."

I can't tell you how sad that made me feel.  "Well, I'm so glad that you got in!"  I smiled as I silently prayed for this girl.

"My Mom is making me have an abortion."  she said.

"How do you feel about that?"  I asked her.

"Well, she wants the best for me and she said that I'm too young to have a baby."

I explained that her baby had a beating heart and eyes and already had a little personality.  "How does the baby's father feel about this?"

Her facial expression changed to sadness.  "Brandon goes to my school and I really love him but when he found out I was pregnant he didn't want anything to do with me.  He comes from a rich family and he won't even talk to me now."

I could just imagine Brandon's mother welcoming this girl who lived in the woods into her nice home.   "Jeanie, do you know anything about the abortion process?  I'd like to show you a quick video so that you can be informed about this.  Afterwards we can bring your Mom in and talk to her, ok?"

She agreed and I showed her a very informative video.  (I wish I would have had this one !!)

Jeanie was aghast after watching and said over and over, "I'm not cutting my baby up!"  Her Mom came in and Jeanie told her what she'd seen.  Her Mom put her arm around Jeanie and reassured her that they would not be going to get an abortion.  (whew!)

I took the opportunity to share the Gospel with both Mom and daughter.  I pray that they have considered this and followed Jesus.
