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: New Converts, New Supporters, New York

Brian Hebert Prayer Letter:  New Converts, New Supporters, New York“Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom? Wilt not thou, O God . . . .” (Psalm 60:9-10) Mrs. Hudson Taylor, while awaiting news from her husband regarding a place for their Chinese mission team to stay, calmed the fears of their young missionary companions first by reading this passage of Scripture and then by praying a faith-filled prayer for God to get them into Hangchow, from which they would begin the infant stage of the China Inland Mission. The faith that Hudson Taylor and his wife displayed has been a source of great encouragement these past months as I read his biography. I am encouraged that we will soon be led into the “strong city” of Toronto. God has always come through for us, and April’s travels have once more shown us that we have a great big God Who will lead us into Toronto.

We began April in Parishville, New York. We were blessed to attend the missions conference of First Baptist Church, which is pastored by Pedro Morales. Our week was made very special by this very thoughtful church. The beauty of this area’s many streams and rivers made me think of Psalm 29:3. Our next destination was Old Paths Bible Baptist Church in Holley, New York. We had a great week at this conference getting to know many wonderful people. We even got to take part in their Street Preaching Ministry. Pastor Cammilleri did the preaching while many of us held Scripture signs for passersby to read. At the end of the conference, they tallied up the Faith Promise cards and determined that they would be able to take us on as their new missionaries. Our third missions conference in a row was at Faith Bible Baptist Church in Rome, New York. Again, this was another wonderful week. We went soul winning each day and knocked on many doors with our fellow missionary friends. Three souls were saved that week, one of whom I was able to lead to Christ after the service I preached. We even got to add a last-minute meeting in King Ferry, New York, at Bethel Independent Baptist Church. This is a fairly new church doing a good job in a Gospel-needy area. Our last meeting was at Faith Baptist Church in Sparta, New Jersey. It was the final Sunday of their Missions Month. We got into town early and went soul winning with them; and, though I can’t relay a powerful story about someone’s conversion, I can relay story after story about how this church has continued to be faithful in soul winning despite continual satanic attacks in a difficult area. Despite all this, they run church buses for kids and are constantly out soul winning. They even have bus kids, like I was, who are in Bible college studying for the ministry. This church impressed upon me how important faithfulness is to the ministry, especially in an area where the Gospel often falls on hard ground. Galatians 6:9 has rung true in this ministry.

Thank you for reading a much abbreviated version of our April travels. Please be in prayer for Dan, a young man I led to Christ. He’s had a hard time before Christ, but now he has Jesus to guide him through the rest of his life. Pray that he grows in the Lord. Pray for the churches we’ve visited that are soon tallying their Faith Promise pledges; an increase will mean we can soon join the missions family of these churches. Lastly, please continue to pray for a full schedule this year; we are very close but have one pesky month, August, that is lacking. Thank you so much for being a part of our lives.

Pressing toward the mark,

Brian Hebert
