17 years ago on this date I pulled into this parking lot located at the corner of Main & Prairie in Elkhart, Indiana. I had no idea what I was going to do, all I knew for sure was that the Lord had told me to go to a street corner and start telling people about Him. I cried all the way there not really knowing what was going on. Never did I think that we would spend close to 9 years ministering in that parking lot on the weekends. Never did I think that the Lord would use me on the streets in places like Chicago, Detroit, Benton Harbor, Philadelphia, York, Baltimore, New York City, Miami, Daytona, New Orleans, San Francisco, Santa Rosa, Tampico, Mexico, different parts of Canada, along with many, many other cities. November will mark 7 years now in Durham. I have been so blessed to be able to minister into so many people's lives! I thank all those who have sown into my life. I am thankful for all the wonderful friends that I have accumulated over these years. I love the streets and I pray for many more years out there. I am so thankful that I was obedient to the call on my life September 17th of 1998. Thank you Jesus!
As I said, we are very excited about what the future holds for this ministry! We know that we are right on track because a great deal of attack has been coming at us. If attack was not coming we should be examining ourselves to see where we are not in right standing with the Lord. The enemy has no new tricks, he tries the same old thing. This is not our first rodeo! He has greatly attacked the finances of the ministry. He attacks our financial partners. He whispers lies into the ears of those who will listen to him to get people to turn against us. We know that we are at war against him and he will try any lame attempt he can in an attempt to take us down. The devil hates that we come against him on a daily basis! We are excited about battling him and snatching as many as we can from the fires of eternal hell!
People, if you can envision a battlefield with foxholes and the attack from the enemy is great. Bombs are going off all around us! We are calling out that we need reinforcements, we need backup, we need supplies, etc. The sad thing is that for the high majority of those professing to be Christians and those in the churches this will fall upon deaf ears. For many, if their immediate family is not affected it does not concern them. Please keep in mind that we are out helping someone's loved ones on nearly a daily basis. I have people contacting me nearly every day wanting help with their troubled lives. Yesterday before I could even walk out the door I was dealing with a marriage falling apart, a young mother of two who had been beaten by her boyfriend, people needing jobs, people needing food, people needing housing and the calls for help go on and on. We know the cries for help are going to intensify along with the falling of this country!
We need your continued prayers! Please for you prayer warriors out there, intensify your prayers for us! We praise the Lord for those of you that stay steadfast in your prayers and financial support! We have some very critical needs in the next 30 days. If the Lord puts us on your heart to help this ministry please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 919.900.0220.
Thank you & God Bless!
