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: Getting Into the Trenches

Brian Hebert Prayer Letter: Getting Into the TrenchesAnother month has flown by, even though it’s hardly seemed like more than a few days. We’ve now been in Canada for almost two months, and it’s been such a joy to finally settle in and get into the trenches with the Johnston family in reaching the Toronto Area for Christ. Liz and I are continuing to press on with our door-to-door soul winning, and we are still amazed at the scope of the need for the Gospel here. Depending on the day and the area in which we’re soul winning, we may be witnessing to people from half a dozen nations or more. The mission field of Iran has been on my heart lately, as we’ve met so many Iranians. What’s surprised me is that not all the Iranians we spoke to were Muslim; some said they were not religious at all! In Iran, one doesn’t have the opportunity to be vocal about not wanting to be Muslim, but here there’s the freedom to choose. Will you join in prayer with me that when we present Christ to the Iranian people, they would choose salvation through the precious blood of Christ? Also, please pray for our new teen Sunday school class. I began teaching on godly character traits, and it’s gone very well. Also, I’ve begun preaching in our afternoon service on the subject of godly music. Both of these new experiences have been very rewarding. The time spent in study has yielded fruit in my own life that I didn’t expect, and I have learned much as I seek to teach the Word of God to our church families. Please pray for me as I continue to teach these topics.

We had the pleasure of having Pastor Chris Jennette and his group from Calvary Baptist Church of Olney, Illinois, come to visit the work and to blitz Richmond Hill with the Gospel. Liz and I presented our work there several months ago, during which time I pitched the idea of their coming to visit someday to take a missions trip, which they obviously took seriously. They were such a joy to have because they had a mind to work and be a blessing. For several days, they went out soul winning with us, and sometimes, we all went twice a day. Though I’m sure they were quite tired (I’m sure they had to be tired because I sure was!), they never seemed to show it; and with their help, we knocked several streets entirely, gave out thousands of tracts and invitations, and helped us cover a few months’ worth of work in weekly soul winning in a short week. We also got to have some fun with their group. For his son’s birthday, which occurred during their visit with us, Pastor Jennette booked a session at a Toronto archery tag arena where, as you probably guessed already, people play tag with arrows—foam-tipped arrows, that is! We had so much fun tagging each other with foamy arrows; hopefully, Pastor Jennette will forgive me for shooting him several times that day. It’s so much fun serving God together with people who know how to have a good time without getting filthy with the world. They closed out their time with us by taking part in our Faith Harbour Conference, which was a short meeting designed to help teach our people how to grow their families in the Lord. They were certainly a valuable addition to our conference.

We’re so grateful finally to be serving God on the field. We couldn’t do it without the great prayer and financial support of you all. Our support has even picked up a little since we arrived. It was so good to get a call a couple of weeks ago to hear that yet another church wants to support us. God is so good! May the Lord bless you as you head into the holiday season. I pray you see many souls saved. Please pray, too, that God would use us to see souls saved as a result of our efforts to invite people to the special services we’ll be having from now until Christmas.

Pressing toward the mark,

Brian Hebert
