We want to start out by saying “Thank you” to the following churches for having us in throughout the month of June: Lighthouse Baptist Church of Haughton, Louisiana; Victory Baptist Church of Del Rio, Texas; Berean Bible Baptist Church of Duarte, California; Iglesia Bautista Berea of El Monte, California; Mountain View Baptist Church of Hesperia, California; Liberty Baptist Church of Yuma, Arizona; and Pleasant Valley Baptist Church of Chico, California.
The month of June began with us finishing up our meetings with churches we were with in Northern Louisiana. While there, we were honored to go back to one of the areas where my family had knocked on doors with Pastor Hall and Shreveport Baptist Temple. This time, one of the men from the church, who is fluent in Spanish, was able to make many great contacts with the Spanish folks! Pastor Hall was also able to follow up with two of the individuals we had seen saved the previous week! While Pastor Hall was talking to one lady at one of the houses we were at, I was blessed to talk with the grandson named Landon. He was not sure that he was saved, but after going through the Gospel with him, as well as verses on eternal security, he was able to have the confidence and assurance of his salvation from when he was younger. Pray that Landon and many others we had contact with will begin to attend Shreveport Baptist Temple and begin to grow in Christ!
While my family and I joined two other men from Pleasant Valley Baptist Church in Chico, California, to pass out flyers for their upcoming VBS, I had the privilege of meeting Trinity. Her door was the very last door I visited to leave a flyer, and she saw me there and actually came outside to take the church flyer personally. After introducing myself as from the church, we were able to talk for several minutes, and I was later able to share the Gospel with her. Trinity is searching for the truth and wants to believe, but she still has some doubts. Please pray that she will come to place her complete trust and faith in Christ alone and gain true peace in her life that can only be found through Christ!
Lastly, we want to also say “Asante Sana” (“thank you very much”) to Lighthouse Baptist Church of Haughton, Louisiana; Berean Bible Baptist Church of Duarte, California; Mountain View Baptist Church of Hesperia, California; and Liberty Baptist Church of Yuma, Arizona, for partnering with us to reach the lost across East Africa! We are now confirmed at 66% of our needed support. Thank you all for your faithfulness in financial and prayerful support. Thank you and God bless you.
Your co-laborers for lost souls across East Africa,
Brandon, Ali, Jeffrey, Hannah, & Esther Heselschwerdt
