JGM News August 2021
I hope you are having a wonderful summer! This has been a great season for us ministering at farm shows and FFA State conventions. We have seen many hundreds of people come to Christ for salvation. I feel like we are living Acts chapter 13:41, which says, “Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.” It is hard to describe in words how fruitful the FFA State conventions and farm shows have been this year. With all the negativity going on in the world, I can tell you firsthand that we have seen such a hunger for the Gospel as we have ministered in 6 FFA state conventions as well as 10 farm shows/outreaches. God also opened a door for me to teach on evangelism at the Fellowship of Christian Farmers National Convention in New York in July.
Just like the keeper of the prison cried out to Paul and Silas in Acts 16:30, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved”? FFA kids and people are coming to our booths by the droves and seeking salvation. As we explain the gospel message and how to be saved, we also teach them how to live the Christian life successfully. We pray with them and give them the Word of God along with other follow up material. The follow up material includes information on websites where they can get some of the best teaching in the world and a phone number they can call to find a good church in their area. One of our goals is to help disciple them through zoom calls. Please pray that people will participate in this.
Please also pray for our upcoming outreach events. Below is a list of some of those shows. As of now, we are still waiting to hear if the Navajo government is going to allow the Navajo Nations Fairs. If so, we plan on ministering at one of those Navajo fairs. Thank you for your prayers and support that make all this possible.
