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: Stay the Course

Brian Hebert Prayer Letter: Stay the CourseThank you for your continued prayer and financial support of this ministry. It’s good to have you on the team with us. At the beginning of January, we had the opportunity to take our teenagers to a Youth Conference at Metropolitan Bible Baptist Church in Toronto, pastored by Bro. Gamy Romano. They did something very unique by having their youth actually plan and run the conference . . . with careful supervision, of course. The young people of their church preached at certain times, while local/area pastors preached messages. The teens sang the specials, played the music, and organized the games—all with great maturity and trustworthiness. This prompted Pastor Johnston to plan a time when our young people can use their talents for the Lord in ministering to our own church. Thus, Youth Ministry Involvement Sundays were created. We had the first one in February, and it was a great success. We had a teenager playing the piano, teenagers playing instruments, teenagers singing special music, and teenagers giving their salvation testimonies. It was very rewarding to practice special music with them and to see them go from being a little timid to singing beautifully on the platform. A few may have thought they’d actually die if they got up in front of people to speak, but to their great surprise and our great delight, they each delivered clear testimonies—and actually lived to tell about it.

Discipleship with our teenagers is still going on, but not without hiccups. Those of you who have tried to disciple anyone at all know that it’s not always a linear process, which has proven true here as well. Honestly, there have been some challenges lately with faithfulness due to work and other issues getting in the way, but we’re not giving up. Discipleship has not been without fruit though. Recently, I’ve started going out and visiting teenage and adult prospects with two of our young men as a continuation of their discipleship. I hope to show them how to love, care, and pray for people and then have their work pay off with souls being saved, people visiting the church, and a youth group growing. Through this, we’ve seen a Chinese lady visit the church with her teenage son Sky; and we’ve had great conversations about God, the Bible, and faith. In a way, I’m trying to repeat what made such an impact on me in my own teenage years when I hung around my youth pastor and other good men in my home church. What made an impact for me was the translation of hearing into doing. I’ve got a long way to go, but the journey of helping these young men has grown my own faith as well.

Please pray with us about a few of our adult converts from this summer. Satan has fought hard to get each of them to slow down in their faith. For some, it happened after baptism, and for others, before they ever could get baptized. Satan doesn’t fight fair, and he never will, so please pray with us that God would work in the lives of not just our teenagers but also our adults and families that He’s placed in our path to help. We love this place, and we want to see God do such a work that everyone knows it’s Him! Pray for our youth group here that God would develop their faith and walk with Him. Pray for our own growth in grace that we can keep on the firing line and “. . . of some have compassion, making a difference.”

Pressing toward the mark,

Brian Hebert
