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: Going Down to Moab

Brian Hebert Prayer Letter:  Going Down to MoabOctober was our last month out West; and, to my surprise, I miss the desert! I miss being able to see for miles during the day, see the sunsets that seem to set the mountains on fire with crimson reds and purples, and see the lights of 10,000 homes glistening in the cool of the night as I stood on the hilltop. Most of all, I miss the friends we made during our last leg of our travels in the western desert. We sure have been blessed to have been able to do what we do. We began the month in Utah near the Idaho border in a little town named Tremonton. There I preached and presented our work at Calvary Baptist Church. We had such a great time getting to know Pastor Sanford and his family. Next we headed to Moab! That’s Moab, Utah, in case you’re wondering. I’m thankful Liz’s name isn’t Naomi, because then I might have gotten worried heading down there! (Look in your Bible in the book of Ruth for reference in case you don’t get that joke.) We got to spend a few days in this uniquely beautiful town surveying God’s creation. I presented our field at Moab Baptist Church on a Wednesday night to Pastor Howe and his wonderful church family. Eventually we had to leave our new friends and head deeper into the desert toward Arizona.

It was an unbelievably long ride from Moab, Utah, to Yuma, Arizona. Look it up sometime, and you’ll see what I mean. Nevertheless, we made it in time to go soul winning with Pastor McConkey and the folks from Liberty Baptist Church in Yuma. It was a hot day, but we were able to knock on several doors, spreading the seed of the Gospel. We spent the weekend presenting our ministry and having fantastic fellowship with Liberty Baptist Church. We moved on to Phoenix, Arizona, afterwards. Our next meeting was in Arizona City, Arizona, at Heaven’s View Baptist Church, pastored by Darrell Roe. I presented our ministry once again, and we were truly blessed to be there. Liz and I had yet another long drive to northwest Arizona for the missions conference at Hualapai (pronounced wah-luh-pie) Baptist Church. We were touched deeply by this congregation’s love for the Lord and for missions. It was incredibly hard to leave these dear new friends of ours. Our last meeting was the missions conference at New Heights Baptist Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Again we met some amazing people with such unique backgrounds. The soul winning was fun, and the fellowship was sweet. Ultimately, we ended the month just north of Amarillo, Texas, so you’ll understand that we are worn out. It’s a good tired, though, because God has blessed us with new supporters and friends. The streak has continued through October in which at least one new supporter has been promised. We are quickly approaching 80-85% of our support goal.

This letter has been much abbreviated because I could fill three or four pages describing the people we’ve met and the friends we’ve made this past month. We have been enriched beyond description because we got to spend time with them. God bless you all, my friends. Keep praying. We’re getting close!

Pressing toward the mark,

Brian Hebert
