We went to a local restaurant, the guy behind the counter is a confessed Muslim. We had prayed for him about 2 years ago and he was angry all the time. We would go into the restaurant and this guy would be cussing, complaining and the help was afraid of him. So we ministered to him and told him the truth, he lit up and confessed Jesus. The smile was priceless. Praise God! Today we saw him again, but his friend say Jesus is dead (Muslim) his boss come over to the guy we prayed for and say’s “Jesus is alive”. The guy receives Christ. Glory!

Today is a great day for us! We (5) people went out and did the will of God to share the good news to the beloved people here in Cambodia. God had opened us a door of how we can share to the people who are in business world. Ptr. Jeremy was able to share the gospel to the Manager of one of the big Hotel in Siem Reap and was given a chance to meet one time for a lunch and talk about the “God thing” which he said he had only a chance to know through a book. Today thank God for five people who were able to hear and prayed the prayer of salvation. Praise and glory to God!

Today the team of the River Siem Reap went out and evangelized the Old Market Area. We agreed together for two things, first is to follow up with those who already heard the gospel and invite them to the church and second to preach the gospel. We decided not to hurry but to spend extra time, establishing friendships with the locals and then share the good news. Thank God he gave us four souls who received the Lord in their hearts!

One of the soul winning stories – while we are walking along looking for an opportunity, we saw two sales ladies who are trying to carry a sack of rice, but it seems too heavy for them to bring inside the store. I offered help to them, after that they thanked me, I told them Jesus offered you help by suffering on the cross so that you will be forgiven and you will have eternal life. The result is they accepted the Lord Jesus and prayed the sinner’s prayer.

Yesterday on my way to work, driving down LA 1, I passed a bad car accident and a young man laying across the trunk of his car in the ditch. The Holy Spirit was leading me to stop and pray for him, but I kept on driving out of fear that it wasn’t God. I thought to myself, “I will let the police and the paramedics handle it.” But half a mile down the road, I surrendered to The Lord, turned my car around, and did what I really wanted to do…I went back! I wanted to see God move. I had to talk to several police officers before being allowed to get to the man. It turned out to be the perfect opportunity to lead a receptive heart to Jesus. He prayed a prayer of salvation with tears in his eyes. Then, this morning I received a text from him saying,”thanks for praying for me pastor and helping me get saved.” I am praying God will give me the opportunity to disciple him. The other morning at 3 AM, I was having trouble sleeping due to working the night shift. I decided to go to Walmart to pick up cereal and milk for breakfast. I saw an employee stocking the shelves and decided to share the gospel with him. He admitted that he wasn’t sure if he would go to heaven, but he wanted to be. I’ll led him through a prayer of salvation so that he could know for sure.

I had a guy walk in the store to get his phone fixed and I told him it will take an hour. So a little over an hour had passed and I just walked out of the back of the store seeing him pull on the door. So I go and opened the door back up to let him in. He told me that he was glad I opened back up to get his phone because he needed to keep in contacts with his ex wife and kids along with his work. He went on to tell me about how he works at a cyanide plant as a pipe fitter and how he’s all stressed out about the risks in working in that type of environment and losing his life. I asked him if he was going to die did he know where he was going. He said I hope heaven. I said he had to know for sure and I asked him did he know jesus and what he had came to do on earth for us. He really didn’t know so I shared the sinners prayer with him and after that he confessed that Jesus was his savior and that he knew that he was going to heaven. So as I was watching him leave I saw relief and happiness across his face.

I had the opportunity to lead a Vietnamese young lady to Jesus on Sunday, September 4th. After hearing testimonies of several people in our church who had survived the flood, and were still praising God, she said it really impressed her! She wanted to ask that God into her life, and she did! After praying the sinner’s prayer with her, she said she felt different and so good! God used a terrible situation for so many to reach a soul for His kingdom! Prayed a prayer of salvation with an elderly gentlemen. He was very receptive and prayed the prayer willingly and was so thankful to know if he died today he would go to heaven.

Among them were 6 teens rolling dice in front of an abandoned house for money. We prayed with them out in the open for the whole neighborhood to see. We also prayed with a Lebanese Red Cross worker to be saved. Finally we went to the Red Cross center and led a couple who lost it all to Jesus! It was a good day! This past Tuesday, August 30th, I went to Mike Corsentino’s car dealership to help sell cars. I led 3 souls to Jesus. I prayed the sinner’s prayer with an older couple who lost it all. Then I led a young Latino man to Jesus. We exchanged numbers and he is planning on coming to the River. Come on Jesus! On Sunday, September 5th, Kyle Tullier and I went on a soul saving mission. We prayed with the girl at the Mcdonalds drive through for salvation. Then we went downtown and won 2 more souls for Jesus. This Sunday morning, September 11th, I led yet another Sonic carhop to Jesus while picking up breakfast for Brandi before church! His name was Derek and he said he lives in Addis. I told him that I would be looking for him at the River! Today after church, I went to visit an older man that I have been trying to win to the Lord. He is gradually becoming more open to Jesus, but still hasn’t prayed with me. However, he had a friend with him today who after hearing the gospel said he wanted to be born again and gladly prayed the prayer of salvation.

He preached to us about how he was a new person and how he couldn’t live the way he lived before because he now has Jesus inside of him. The Holy Spirit revealed the Gospel to him from one second to the next he understood what it meant to be saved. It was amazing! He now knows we’re family & wants to hangout soon.

On our way taking Rachel to the airport for her trip to Bethel, we stopped and ate at Laignappe in Baker. As we were celebrating the opportunity that God had given to Rachel, our waitress began to cry and she ran off from the table. When she returned some 15 min later we asked her if she was ok and she really couldn’t even talk. So, my wife and I prayed for her right there in the restaurant and she begin to really weep. The Holy Spirit ministered to her and she received Christ as her personal savior. Out of the blue, a woman from across the restaurant came and hugged us as we prayed and said thank you for displaying love for another race! The blood of Jesus matters.

After prayer, Jeanne and Lacey began to minister to her and asked her if she knew where she would go if she died. She said she didn’t, but really was hesitant to pray. So we were persistent and just told her to repeat after me. She prayed and it just felt right. I believe she received the Lord with her heart.

We explained it to her and she, after finished with the conversation confidently could tell us where she was going if she were to die. 2) Sunshine – She was a lady at a hotel front desk, upon sharing the gift of Christ with her she said she was buddhist and knew Jesus, someone shared Jesus on a regular basis with her. After bringing her through the script, leading her in the prayer of salvation she said “The God is good.” We got her contact information and can’t wait to share more with her.

I was on my way to the River last week. I had just prayed that God change circumstances and physical conditions around me to help me witness to people. After we parked, a man on a 4-wheeler was driving by but his engine suddenly stopped. I got the urge to witness and turned on my heels. I told him I believe God turned off his engine so I could pray with him. When I asked if he knew if he was going to heaven, he said, “I WANT to, but I don’t know.” I shared the script, we prayed, and he felt a weight lift off of him.

Anyway I went up to the guy and started sharing my testimony with him on how God had saved me and forgave me of my sin and how I new if i died I would Go to heaven. The guy looked extremely interested so I continued to share. I asked him if he died did he know for certain that he would inherit eternal life, he wasn’t sure. So he and I prayed right there in the middle of the Gym for him to receive Christ. I felt the man was genuine and sincere. I have been talking to this man for the past few weeks and really trying to encourage him to come to bible study. God is good!

Our evangelism team (Chris, Jason, Greg, Lacey, Rachel, Jeanne, Tim) went to Brusly high on Feb 12 to round up as many students as possible for the Transformed youth rally that night. The Lord drew 7 new teens to church that night and at the alter call the Spirit of God moved in a powerful way. About 15 people came up to the alter to make a first time commitment to Christ or re dedicate their lives and stand for Jesus! The harvest is truly plentiful!

My wife and I have been ministering to a woman named Riva at a convenient store in Sorrento. When we went there to see how she has been, she started talking about how we had been praying for her to a police officer who was in the store and another store clerk. After she finished talking I asked the police officer and the clerk if they would like to receive Christ as their personal savior and they prayed right there in front of the cash register with people in line at register! Its was awesome to see people respond boldly for Christ. Their names were Roman and Tracey! The gospel works!

After school, I ran into a young lady named Cara who was cleaning a classroom. As I ran into her, I was startled because I knew she needed Jesus. All glory to God!! I asked her if she knows that Jesus loves her and has a plan for her life. She said it had been a while since she’d heard those words and that she’d needed to hear them in that moment. We prayed the prayer of salvation and I took her information. So please pray for Cara from Livonia! She’s ready to receive!

During “soul shopping” at the mall, a young lady was cleaning near our table. I smiled at her and began speaking to her about her hair, which I liked. I told her about my own hair adventures and actually began to close the conversation out, when Pastor Butch chimed in and asked if she knew Jesus loved her. At this point, another lady had joined the conversation and listened closely behind the first young lady to Pastor Butch. The girl I’d initially began taking to started walking away slowly. I caught her and asked if we could pray together. She said ‘yes’. We prayed the prayer of salvation, and I took down her cell number.

I went with the soul winning team today to the Addis parade. I went up to many people and got turned down. I was very discouraged and felt like I couldn’t do it. But, I kept trying and saw a man sitting by a booth. I felt a tug in my heart to go talk to him and kept wrestling with it. Finally, I went over to his booth. I began asking him questions like, “Has anyone ever told you that God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life? Do you know for sure without any doubt that you are going to heaven?” He told me no for both questions. I began to share the love of God with him. He prayed the prayer of salvation with me and I asked if I could pray a blessing over him. As I prayed I felt the tangible presence of God upon me as I prayed. He says he will come to the River. I explained to him how important it is to be connected to a church family. He totally understood. I may have only got one person saved but it was worth all the let downs before because he is going to heaven now!!!

One Decision for Christ: At the LSU International dormitory life group with Tri and Chris, we met with a young man from Shang Hai. His name is Tommy. At first, Tommy was resistant. I asked if he was a believer. He said, “I think it will take many years before I can be a believer.” I asked why. He willing to talk about his concerns, but he wasn’t making much sense. No matter what excuses he made, I perceived he was simply afraid. He knew a lot about the word of God and some of his family members were becoming saved in China. His parents and uncle were not saved. He kept saying, “I feel like there is a gap of understanding.” However, Tri and I both spoke with him to find out what he didn’t understand. The more we talked, the more we realized he wasn’t lacking understanding at all. I said, “It really sounds like you DO understand, so why don’t you believe?” He soon confessed that it wasn’t a lack of understanding, but it was a fear of persecution from his family and what might happen in his country to Christians in the future. I said, “Tommy, THAT is the truth. You aren’t lacking understanding and you WANT to be a believer, but you’re just afraid.” Tri, with much kindness, love, and encouragement, finally got Tommy to decide to give his life to Christ. We prayed with Tommy and prayed against fear. He said, “I feel so much better. I know now that my fears are illusions to try to keep my from Christ.” He has made a commitment to Tri to start coming to the RIVER until he returns to China! Praise be to Jesus, our Lord and Savior!

During “Soul Shopping” on Sunday January 31st, Nadair Banks and I were wandering around looking for opportunities. Nadair said, “What about that guy with the blonde streak in his hair?” At first, I hesitated, but hesitation isn’t a reason not to witness! I gave in and said, “Ok, let’s go get him!” As I was walking to catch up to him, he and his friend who he was walking with turned around and came the other way. I walked right up to them and said, “Excuse me guys, has anyone told you God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life?” The young man with the blonde streak said, “Yes.” After talking with them briefly, the young man said he had just gotten out of rehab and was battling depression and emotional struggles. I gave him a card for the church, got his phone number, and have been encouraging him to come to church. He says he is looking forward to it!
