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: Kicking Off a New Ministry

Brian Hebert Prayer Letter:  Kicking Off a New MinistryGreetings from Canada! I hope that your Thanksgiving holiday was a blessing and a refreshment to you. Things have been moving along for us here as we dive further into the ministry. Last month I mentioned that we would be starting a new teen ministry called teenIMPACT, which would be a teaching and training program for our teens before our midweek services. We began that ministry on Thursday, November 8. Our inaugural meeting started with a lesson on soul winning and then an opportunity to go out into the area and give out tracts to people who were walking in and out of stores. I was very pleased with our teens, who gave out just shy of 50 tracts that first night. My goal is to slowly build their confidence so that they will eventually become confident soul winners. This time was different because they had to deliberately go up to someone, get their attention, give them the tract, and invite them to church. Over these past few weeks, we’ve covered several different topics regarding witnessing. I’ve recently started engaging our teens in soul-winning training scenarios, where they have to try to “win” me to Christ, after which I try to help them with some tips on ways to improve, as well as praising and encouraging them in the things they did well. It’s been a fun growing experience even for me. There’s usually some laughter we have to work through during this training time because I probably have the funniest teens in all Ontario to work with. In all seriousness though, I see a desire in them to learn and grow. There’s hope for Canada’s future, and it’s in these young Canadian soul winners.

Last month we also had our very first youth activity with pizza and table games. Our teens had to complete a challenge to be able to attend, and all of our teens completed this challenge. Canadian Thanksgiving holiday is in October, so I took the entire month and taught on thankfulness. During that month, the teens had to complete 16 different acts of giving thanks. The fellowship was great, and it was a good bonding and building tool for our young people, most of whom are scattered in different towns in the Greater Toronto Area. They don’t often get together outside of church times, so this was good for them. We also had a great time going with Pastor Johnston and some of our teens to the annual Youth Conference at Lighthouse Baptist Church in London, Ontario, hosted by fellow FBMI missionary Phil Powless. My wife was even able to help a young lady from another Toronto-area church get reassurance of her salvation. This was a really great trip for us and for our teenagers.

Please pray for Bahar, an Iranian lady we met who is a follower of the Bahá’Í Faith. When one of our teen boys and I witnessed to her, she was very kind, but she didn’t get saved. My wife and I were able to go back and give her a whole Bible in the Farsi language. She had previously asked for a Bible in Farsi since her English is limited; we thank the Lord that we were able to get one for her. Pray that we have another opportunity to witness to Bahar. Also, please pray for my dad. We recently found out that he has cancer. The doctors are confident that it can be treated, but please pray for healing nonetheless. I’m not sure of his salvation, so I’m asking you all to make it a serious matter of prayer. We’ll be taking some time this Christmas to visit both of our families in Louisiana and North Carolina, so please pray that these visits would be blessed and that we’d have safety in travel.

Pressing toward the mark,

Brian Hebert
