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 and Liz Hebert Prayer Letter: A More “Normal” Summer

Brian and Liz Hebert Prayer Letter: A More "Normal" SummerSummer is officially over here in Ontario, as our foliage has begun to change en masse. This summer has been a refreshing cool stream in what has been a desert of activity since COVID took over the world. On July 28, Liz and I celebrated 14 years of marriage. We kept our celebration quite simple this year, and it was lovely. It’s a daily joy doing ministry with my best friend.

Ministry has picked up significantly for us this summer, as it seems that, more than ever, people are ready to return to normal life. We’ve been able to go door-to-door soul winning this summer, something not possible last summer, and though responses have been mixed, they’ve been more positive than negative in ever-increasing amounts. Through a mixture of online videos, canvassing, door knocking, and inviting people, we’ve seen new people visit the church and more and more people we haven’t seen in over a year return to church. Recently, we said “See you later” to a couple more of our faithful teens who went off to college; but, conversely, we’ve also added some new teens who have promoted into our youth group. We look forward to teaching, training, and encouraging this next generation of teens.

Typically, we’re very busy in the summer with different Youth Conferences, preaching meetings, and different fellowships. For the first time in a long time, we’ve been able to resume some of these things. In July, we were able to take some of our teens to a fantastic Youth Tent Revival, with several other churches in Ontario in attendance. We played softball, kickball, 9-square in the air, basketball, and probably things I’m forgetting, until everyone nearly collapsed. The joy and excitement were palpable among these fellowship-starved teens and youth workers. We had a great time of fun and spiritual refreshment as we sang praises to God together and heard God’s Word preached. We also had the opportunity to take our youth group to a weeklong teen event (Teen VBS basically), which, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, was a refreshing blessing. A couple of new teens came, and some former teens who had been out of church for a long while came too.

Prayer Requests

Teen Gospel Outreach: Because the schools are not currently serving lunch due to COVID concerns, the local teens, for about an hour each weekday, are released into the neighbourhood to get food at local restaurants. I’ve been using this as an opportunity to get some Youth Ministry invitation/tracts out, as well as some Gospel of John booklets. Please pray for open hearts.
Gospel Light Baptist Church youth: I’ve been doing a lot of teaching on God’s will and design for their lives lately, so please pray for their hearts to be searching after God to find their specific role in His service.
Teen IMPACT: Our winter teaching and training for teens will begin in October. Please pray for God to work in the teens’ hearts.
Wisdom for ministry with COVID still being a part of our lives: There are lots of things to think about in the coming days.
My parents, Todd and Tina Hebert: Their house in Louisiana was hit hard with Hurricane Ida. Please pray for recovery and rebuilding.
Gospel Mailers: God has led Pastor Johnston again to mail Gospel tracts to every home in our area and some of the towns in surrounding areas. Please pray that we can raise the necessary money to mail them, and even more importantly, pray that the tracts connect with searching hearts.

For the cause of Christ,

Brian Hebert
