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: Let’s Make an IMPACT!

Brian and Liz Hebert Prayer Letter: Let's Make an IMPACT!Thank you all so much for taking part in the ministry here in Canada. It’s an honour to serve here with Pastor Johnston and the great folks of Gospel Light Baptist Church. Weekly, we are meeting many different people from all national and religious backgrounds as we go out soul winning. On one street, we frequently meet Chinese, Korean, Iranian, and Russian folks, as well as other folks from Europe and Africa. This mission field is teeming with people who need to be reached! One Thursday night out soul winning, my soul-winning partner and I met an Iranian man named John, whom we soon discovered to be a Christian. His words were, “I was praying for God to show me a church nearer to my house that I could go to, and then you came to my house.” He’s come several times since meeting him; please pray that he will get grounded in the Word, grow in grace, and help us reach other Persians with the Gospel. A Chinese man named Andrew, whom I met out on Sunday afternoon soul winning, has been coming off and on for the past couple of months. Culturally, he’s a Buddhist, but he’s curious about Christianity. Please pray for him to go beyond curiosity into saving faith in Jesus Christ alone. Please pray for others we’ve witnessed to or have given Gospel tracts to. There is one lady we met whom I forgot to ask prayer for in our last update; her name is Tekla (I’m assuming I’m spelling that right). She’s a Kenyan Catholic nun. We had a good conversation with her, perhaps the most open Gospel conversation I’ve ever had with a Catholic nun. Please pray for her salvation.

Teen IMPACT has started up again. This is possibly my favourite time of year, as I get to teach an extra class and spend more time investing in our youth. We will start the season studying “Truths for Life from the Book of Psalms” and end the season studying “Truths for Life from the Story of David.” To reinforce the truths we’re learning, the teens will be memorizing verses from the book of Psalms, as well as Journaling Through the Psalms, which is a challenge to read through the Psalms daily throughout the program and journal about what God is teaching them. They have already memorized several verses of the Psalms, and some have committed the first several Psalms to memory. I’m so thankful to be able to work with our teens at GLBC. It’s truly an honour and a privilege. Pray for God’s power as we seek to train the next generation of Canadian youth to reach Canada for Christ!

Pray for labourers in Canada. This is a forgotten mission field that is in desperate need of pastors and church planters. Here are a few statistics about the great need in Canada: (1) On average, 2 churches in Canada close every day. (2) By 2029, one-third of Canada’s churches will be closed. (3) Only 23% of Canadians attend church at least once a month. (4) Only 58% of Baptists in Canada attend church at least once a month. (5) Only 19% of Baptists in Canada believe their faith is important to how they live their lives. We’re seeing the effects of the lack of labourers, as wicked ideology has a firm hold on the lives of youth and even their parents here who grew up in the same Godless system. Many good soul-winning churches in Canada have pastors well into their sixties now, with no one to take their place. There are several churches that are without pastors and have been so for a long time. Pray for us and for Canada with urgency please! Considering these highlighted needs, pray for our youth. I’m not concerned as much if we have a lack of doctors, lawyers, and carpenters as I am for the spiritual darkness that looms over this nation. “. . . how shall they hear without a preacher?” I love Canada. It’s home now, and I want to do what God wants us to do in reaching this nation for Christ, whether that be training the next generation or stepping in to fill one of these needs. Please pray for us!

His servant and yours,

Brian Hebert
