It is written: “Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters.” (Isaiah 43:16) God is so good! In mid-May, He let me continue my deputation trail with some meetings in Colorado and Texas. Several churches were starting to reopen, holding in-person services while maintaining appropriate social distancing.
Seeing scores of people around parks, street corners, stores, and some gripped by fear behind closed doors helped me remain soul-conscious and tenderhearted. Every day thousands of people die without Christ: rich and poor, young and old, moms and dads, men and women. Using social distancing, the Lord granted me the privilege to see 11 precious souls receive Jesus Christ by faith as Saviour! To see a whole family trust Jesus Christ as Saviour far exceeds the whole world’s wealth. As I started to witness to a man in his fifties on a Sunday evening at Del Rio Baptist Church in New Mexico, he stopped me and asked for his son and daughter to come join us. Praise the Lord, they all got saved! They were first-time visitors.
Not only did I hear about Preston’s growth in grace, but I also received a request from him to pray for the salvations of Troy, Kristen, and Kenna—his siblings. Preston trusted Jesus as Saviour in August of 2018. While using prerecorded messages, I have been able to disciple 18 of my family members through YouTube and WhatsApp. Praise the Lord for opening that door!
As stated above, the Lord gave me a few meetings in Colorado and Texas, with a few drop-ins in New Mexico. At Trinity Baptist Church of Big Spring, Texas, God moved the church family there not only to offer to pay for the airfare to Gabon but also to pay for the purchase of the land there in due time. PRAISE THE LORD! Plus, the Rocky Mountain Baptist Church family of Pueblo, Colorado, covered for the shipping-container fees to Gabon. PRAISE THE LORD!
Praise the Lord for five new supporting churches: Trinity Baptist Church of Big Spring, Texas; Rocky Mountain Baptist Church of Pueblo, Colorado; Mile High Baptist Church of Denver, Colorado; Little Cypress Baptist Church of Calvert City, Kentucky; and Lighthouse Baptist Church of Concord, California. To God be all the glory!
Lighthouse Baptist Church, my home church, has been such a tremendous blessing in so many ways! The church family is looking forward to welcoming Bro. Robinson with Bearing Precious Seed to prepare 20,000 John and Romans in French with some sister churches in Nevada for the Lord’s work in Gabon. Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord for your constant prayers and support for the French Bibles, French New Testaments, John and Romans, Gospel tracts, discipleship materials, French Bible recordings, and the tracts in Punu and Fang (two local dialects). The container is scheduled to be shipped sometime in November. Please continue to pray for the YouTube messages to change people’s lives in Gabon and for 300 faithful men for the ministry.
Without you, this ministry would not be possible. Thank you so much for your earnest prayers and financial support! I have been praying for you and your ministries. May God bless you as you serve Him faithfully!!
That all everywhere may hear,
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (I Corinthians 15:58).
