July - September 2017

         2 Peter 1:19  “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:”  We so desire to be a light unto those living in darkness.  We tend to forget that we rub elbows with friends, family, neighbors, and strangers that are in a dark place.  Many if not most of them do not have Christ in their hearts.  Some are even deceived believing they know Christ but do not know him personally.  Lost! Lost! Lost!!  May God press upon our spirit the urgency of the task before us.

          May 6, 2017  I traveled 4 hours round trip to Wilson County, Tennessee.  The sky was overcast when I left home but I had high hopes that the rain would hold off until I was done preaching.  When I arrived it was raining pretty hard.  I tried to find a building with an awning but that was not to be.  I sat for a while hoping the rain would slack off and people would return to the town square but the rain continued.  I left for home feeling pretty disappointed that this day had been “wasted.”  Then, I remembered that God allowed the rain!! 

         June 10, 2017  I traveled back to Wilson County, Tennessee.  This time I was able to sit up in the court square in front of an historic log cabin.  I preached for quite some time but without a co-laborer to help with the signs and Bibles and tracts I was unable to give anything out.  Still, I preached and was able to see many people stopping and listening all about the court square for part or all of the gospel message.  My desire is to again have some person commit to going with me to engage the people who do stop to listen and witness to them and/or give out Bibles and tracts.  For now, the preached Word is what the world needs the most so it will be more than enough.
