I was able to go and visit some friends in Toronto, Canada this week as I try to get to know some churches in the area to see if they are willing to let me come and present my work. Toronto is only 2.5 hours away from where I live in New York. I have made several contacts and Lord willing several more. On this trip we were able to assemble a team to go door knocking. We had a good time! We past a good number of tracts and John and Romans. We were able as a group to talk to several open people. No one made a decision for Christ but the Word of God was preached. It will not return void. It will accomplish its task. Please pray for a 14 year old young man by the name of Alex that he would receive Christ as Savior. When we first started the conversation he said that he was an atheist,but by the time we left he was beginning to ask several good questions that leads me to believe that God has somewhat caused him to think. He has been brainwashed by world. Praise the Lord for His word that is quick and powerful.
This past Saturday I was able to go with a group of people from our church to another festival in a park in Buffalo, NY. There was a lot of people. We handed out hundreds of tracts and talked to several people. No one received Christ as Savior however, the seed of the Word of God was planted in many hearts. I was able to briefly share some spiritual insights to a couple of young teenage boys. They had a short attention span. Please pray that they would read the tract and make the right decision in accepting Christ. Also I was given the opportunity to practice the little Spanish I know with a PuertoRican family that was having a picnic and eating some wonderful food. I was able to talk to them for awhile and they treated me very well. They even gave me some of the food they were eating. Please pray for their salvation.
Faith Baptist Church
This past Sunday I was given the opportunity to preach and present my work to Faith Baptist Church in Springville, NY. It was a blessed time. This particular church has something happened to them recently. They were a member of the Southern Baptist Convention, but through much study, Pastor Kevin Friedman decided to leave the convention and become an Independent Baptist Church. God is blessing him and his church family for doing so. Please pray for them during this time. They just recently been informed about Faith Promise Missions. They are wanting to take me on Lord willing maybe as there first missionary ever as an independent church.
This past Thursday in our Gowanda nursing home outreach I was able to participate in a trumpet trio with two other teenage boys of our church. We had a great time playing the wonderful hymn “Like a River Glorious.” The senior citizens enjoyed it very much. What peace that God gives us His children. This world cannot and will never give us such peace. Peace that passeth all understanding.
