I recently read about Dr. Walter Wilson, who, with his God-given ability, would turn any conversation into a soul-winning opportunity. I marveled at Dr. J. Frank Norris, who often knocked on doors from 4:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Saturdays. I pondered on Dr. D.L. Moody’s struggle to withhold tears from his eyes while speaking to each lost soul. I gazed in shock at the story of Ruth, a lady without legs in Chicago, who became a faithful soul winner and would crawl from door to door to tell people about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Several weeks ago, I watched with astonishment as Zachary, a teenage boy from Bailey’s Grove Baptist Church, gave with urgency and clarity the plan of salvation to five kids. They all trusted Jesus Christ as Saviour. These stories compelled me to become a better soul winner.
I thank my God for allowing me the opportunity to travel to North Carolina and California to present my vision before different church families. On one of my flights, I met and witnessed to a French couple at the Las Vegas airport. It was a blessing not only to speak French but also to witness in French. I thank my God for the safe flights and road trips. I thank my God for the prayers of my home church and the many other churches I have visited so far. I thank my God for the seemingly trivial and remarkably obvious blessings. I thank my God for the countless encouragements from God’s people. I thank my God for His amazing grace, strength, love, and mercy.
I was blessed to witness 32 souls receive Jesus Christ as Saviour. Robert Brewer, whom I highlighted in my January prayer letter, was arguably one of the main stories. I received a phone call at the end of May from a family we had reached through the Bus Ministry several years ago. It was an urgent message about Mr. Brewer’s hospitalization. I went to see him on numerous occasions at the hospital. The third time I went, God impressed it upon my heart to address his salvation. He listened with great attention to the plan of salvation and received Jesus Christ as Saviour. I gave him a brand-new Bible and a “fill in the blanks” Bible lesson. For several days, my heart was full of praise and gratitude towards God for His salvation. Praise the Lord! God is so good! Please pray for Robert and his whole family, as he has been placed on hospice care and given just a week to live. Robert and I became good friends. It is always hard to say goodbye to a friend. For the family, it must be profoundly difficult to have to say goodbye to a loved one. Please pray for God to deal with his family members’ hearts to receive the gift of God.
Praise the Lord! Mrs. Gina Martinez, who was hospitalized for at least eight months, was able to come to church again. Mrs. Martinez’s family, friends, and church family have all been witnesses of the power, grace, and glory of God. God turned a hopeless situation, from the doctors’ perspective, into a very hopeful condition. God worked the impossible! Bro. and Mrs. Martinez have touched numerous lives in so many ways throughout the years. They have brought many family members to church, planted the Gospel seed in so many hearts, and given abundantly of their time and efforts to meet with great diligence the needs of other church members. They have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints. They do it out of the abundance and overflow of their love for Jesus Christ. We are blessed to have them in our church family.
Praise the Lord for the decision of First Baptist Church of Mariposa, California, and Freedom Baptist Church of Fayetteville, North Carolina, to support my ministry! Thank you all very much for your faithfulness through prayer and giving to reach every soul in Gabon through the preaching and teaching of the Word of God.
