Brian

The Lord saved me at the age of 15 as a result of the infamous 9/11 attacks.  I had been attending the St. Amant Baptist Church in St. Amant, Louisiana, as a bus kid since I was five years old.  I remember being talked to about salvation often as a child, but I don’t think I really understood it.  When I became a teenager, my understanding of the Gospel changed. I knew that I was a sinner and that I must trust Jesus alone for salvation; however, my pride, rebellion, and self-reliance made me confident that my sinful lifestyle was okay the way it was without becoming one of “the church people.”  Yet, when I heard that the Twin Towers had fallen to terrorists, I didn’t feel so invincible after all.  As a result of that tragic day, I neither slept nor ate well because of the deep fear in my heart that I might go to Hell. God definitely had my attention. I thought, What if I had died in one of those crashes?  On the next church service that came around, I fell under the conviction of the Holy Spirit for my sin and asked Jesus to be my personal Saviour.  He has forever changed my life.

I was privileged and blessed to be reared in a loving Christian home.  My parents made sure from the time I was a baby that I was at church three times a week. My kindergarten Sunday school teacher asked me in class if I knew for sure when I died if I would go to Heaven. I told her, “Yes, I would go to Heaven,” and I honestly thought I would because my parents took me to church three times a week and made me behave.  She told me I would not go to Heaven, because being good does not save you. I realized I was a sinner and could not go to Heaven on my own. That day after class, I bowed my head and asked Jesus to come into my heart.

 

Through much prayer and listening to the Holy Spirit’s leading, my wife and I have decided to join forces with veteran missionary Brian Johnston and his family in reaching the people of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area.  Bro. Johnston has labored for ten years in the Toronto area to win souls, disciple believers, plant churches, and build a strong, pattern church, the Gospel Light Baptist Church.  Our plan is to join his team in planting, multiplying, and strengthening churches all around the Toronto area.

Brian Hebert Prayer Letter: Blessings and Burdens

Brian Hebert Prayer Letter:  Blessings and BurdensAs of this writing, we have been in Canada for five months! It has been the privilege of our lives and the ultimate realization of a dream planted in my heart some 15 years ago. If you are reading this, you’ve had a part in that in some way, and we are so grateful to you for your help in getting and remaining here in the Greater Toronto Area.

We’ve been busy getting into the daily grind of the ministry, which has made me appreciate more the sacrifice and amount of work that my own pastor, youth pastor, college teachers, Sunday school teachers, etc. put in on a daily basis. It truly is by God’s sustaining grace that we can keep going each day. I was blessed to be able to preach a Christmas-themed salvation message in December after our annual Children’s Christmas Program, where many parents and family showed up to hear their kids sing. After the service, our pastor and his wife, Bro. and Mrs. Johnston, approached one of our visiting couples about salvation, and the wife got saved that day.

As I mentioned in our last letter, we went into the States to visit both of our families for Christmas. It was a sweet reunion time, for sure. I was able to take another chance to witness to my dad, but sadly, he did not get saved. We’re going to continue to pray, and I’ll hope you’ll join me in praying for my dad and other family members who need Jesus. In some small way, I feel like I understand the mindset of Paul in Romans 9. I’m happy to pray along with you about any unsaved people in your life if you’ll email me.

We couldn’t get home (Canada) fast enough after enjoying our time in Louisiana and North Carolina. We both missed our teenagers and our church family. While we were gone, Ashley, one of our teenage young ladies, got to lead her first soul to Christ. Of her own accord, she approached a teen girl about her salvation after Sunday school, and subsequently, the girl got saved. We’ve been teaching and training our teens on soul-winning principles, verses, and techniques before our midweek service, but the funny thing is that I had never covered the scenario of approaching someone in a non-door-to-door situation. Liz and I are both so proud of the progress that has been made already among the Gospel Light teens in our teenIMPACT program.

Some things to pray for:

1. Contacts we’ve been following up on since the Thanksgiving service for either salvation or church attendance
• Bahar (Persian lady who follows the Bahá’í Faith, unsaved)
• Elizabeth (attended Thanksgiving service, got saved afterwards, but needs discipleship)
• Ilya (Persian young adult man my wife and her soul-winning partner met, interested in church, unsaved)
2. Upcoming teen events (soul-winning memory-verse challenge, preaching meetings, Family Day activity)

To God be the glory,

Brian Hebert
