A Band of Men

In 1 Samuel 10:26 the Bible reads “And Saul went home to Gibeah; and there went with him a band of men, whose hearts God had touched.” I have a little note written in my Bible next to this verse that says “God is going to have to touch men’s hearts to follow you.” I believe I wrote that note there when my pastor, Austin Gardner, was preaching out of this text. What is going on in the surrounding verses is that Saul is being anointed king. And as he was the God chosen leader at the time, God also touched other men’s hearts to follow him. I ask that you will pray with me that God will touch men’s heart to get involved in His work. Pray in two ways:

  1. Pray that God will touch men’s hearts as we travel around the United States and preach in hundreds of churches. Pray that souls will be saved and that God will touch men’s hearts and allow us to band together to take the Gospel to the world.
  2. Pray that God will touch men’s hearts in China. Ones that we can raise up, train, and send out to plant other churches with a heart to not only reach the 1.3 billion in China, but the 6.5 billion around this world.

I have been privileged to work with such men whom God has banded together to get the Gospel to the world. As we branch off I pray that it will grow stronger, and we can see more fruit and men; as a result.

Our First Month!

This past month and a half has been filled with many new beginnings for our family. We started off with the birth of our first child. The Lord gave us a beautiful and healthy little girl. Also, my wife and I celebrated our first year anniversary this past Monday. It is an exciting time, and we are looking forward to what is next.

This month was the official start of our part-time deputation and we are already at 10% of our needed support. Several churches are strongly backing us up. We are filling up our calendar with meetings and are getting ready to go full-time in January.
