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: I Left My Heart in Louisiana

Brian Hebert Prayer Letter:  I Left My Heart in LouisianaWe spent the entire month of March in Louisiana. We had two great meetings in the northern part of the state. The first was Occupy #1 Baptist Church in Pitkin, Louisiana. I do not have time to explain the name of the church, but I do have time to explain that God is doing a great work in the hearts of a small congregation in this out-of-the-way area. Pastor Whitener and his church have seen a revival lately, with many young people and adults being saved and added to the church! The result of this revival blossomed into an excited congregation consisting of a majority of new Christians. I was privileged to present our ministry and preach here. From there we moved on to Shreveport, Louisiana, to present our work at Shreveport Baptist Temple.

Whereas we had a great month, not all went as I expected it to go. A meeting and a conference we were counting on ended up getting canceled, so our month was a little more open than I would have planned for. However, the openings gave us some unique opportunities that I wasn’t expecting. After the meetings we had in North Louisiana were finished, we made the prophet’s chamber set-up at our sending church, St. Amant Baptist Church, our home base for a while. We made use of our open time to be a blessing to our sending church and to meet other pastors in Louisiana we hadn’t previously met before in order to sow seeds for future meetings.

One of the ways we tried to be a blessing was by going out soul winning in the area, inviting both potential bus riders and families alike. I felt really burdened to go to my old neighborhood where I started riding the bus as a kid. This desire brought us to Bryan Avenue in Gonzales, Louisiana! (On an interesting side note, my old bus workers used to call me “Brian on Bryan Street.”) My emotions ran high as I knocked on doors in this area. We spent a few hours knocking on doors and meeting people, who were surprisingly happy to see us. Sadly, we saw no one saved, but we got out many Gospel tracts and made several good seed-sowing appointments. On another occasion, Liz and I knocked on doors near St. Amant Baptist in an area still trying to recover from the flood that happened many months ago. Here we were able to make a lot of contacts for the bus route. I’m also much burdened to see this ministry get off the ground once again in my home/sending church. What I haven’t told you is that the flood also wiped out their entire Bus Ministry at St. Amant Baptist, and it’s only been recently that they have been able to get a new bus. They are battling now to get the paperwork figured out, which has proven itself to be quite the difficult process. Pray that this ministry is revived again soon; other “Brians on Bryan Street” are waiting!

To top things off, we also got to join a church in Baton Rouge in their college campus ministry at LSU. Get this! The place where we set up the table to engage the students was called “Free Speech Alley”! Here we were able to hand out tracts, witness, and invite the students to an evening Bible study on campus. How cool is it that I got to go soul winning on the campus of my favorite college football team! We were privileged indeed to serve this month. Please pray for the seed sown to take root and blossom into precious souls being saved in Southeast Louisiana. I’m a product of this region, and I long for them to know my Jesus. Will you pray for them?

Pressing toward the mark,

Brian Hebert
