2020 started out with a bang as I ministered at 3 farm shows in January. Two of them were in the south; in Cleveland Mississippi and in West Monroe Louisiana. The other farm show was in the cold north of Sioux Falls South Dakota. In February we ministered at two big Farm shows; in Louisville Kentucky and in Kansas City Missouri. In March it was back down south ministering at the Wichita Falls Farm show. God was moving mightily at these farm shows, especially among the young people, as many of them came to our booth in these cities to receive a Wordless walking sticks and to hear the Gospel. At the Western Farm Show in Kansas City hundreds of FFA kids came to our booth and listened very intently as we preached the Gospel to them. Many of them prayed to receive the Lord. After this we gave them a lot of follow up material including websites and apps so they could get Bible courses and some of the best Bible teaching to continue to grow in the Lord. We even give them a phone number they can call to find a good Bible believing church in their area.
At the Louisville Farm show, after three young men prayed with me to be saved, I prayed that the Holy Spirit would come on them. They left after this but then one of them turned around and came back to me and said to me that he wanted to get closer to God and become a man of God. Once again, I was able to give him access to Bible courses, apps, websites and help in finding a good church. One woman at the Louisville Farm show told me she was full of hate toward her two sons in law. I told her that if she got saved, Gods love would be shed abroad in her heart by the Holy Ghost and that she would be able to love and forgive through Gods love in her. Thank the Lord she prayed to receive the Lord. At the Louisville farm show we had 12 students from all over the nation and world who attend a seminary in Louisville, help us with the Louisville farm show. We were privileged to be able to train these students as well as some other people from churches in that area who came to help us in evangelism.
The public health concerns with the coronavirus COVID 19 has cancelled or postponed outreaches planned for this Spring. As of now, the outreaches we have planned from the end of May and beyond have not been impacted . We are using this time to pray, write, study and reach out over the internet.
I want to encourage you with these words. Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, there is a time for every purpose under heaven. The devil’s purpose for the coronavirus COVID 19 is to kill steal and to destroy. But I am believing that God has another purpose, turning into good that which was meant for evil. Somehow revival is going to come out of all of this, and I mean a great revival. Let us keep agreeing and believing that we are going to see the greatest harvest of souls this world has ever seen.
In closing, here is a list you can use you as you pray during this unprecedented time:
- Psalm 91:10 , “there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.”
- That God would use this to help bring revival to our nation and world.
- Healing for those who have been infected.
- For the health and safety of our health professionals.
- That our leaders would make God led decisions.
- That the scientists and researchers will discover the medical way to combat this virus.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support into this ministry. We are praying for you. Keep rejoicing, this is going to be our finest hour.
