JGM News November 2023

As I sit down to type this newsletter and begin to reflect on all the places that I have ministered at the last few months, I am amazed at how many different cultures and people groups God sent me to. In August I was ministering to people in the northern plains of South Dakota at Dakota fest. At the end of August, I was in Decatur, Illinois for the Farm Progress Show where people from all over the world attended this big farm show.

A day after being in Decatur, I headed to the most international city in the world, Toronto Canada to minister at the Canadian National Exhibition which was attended by hundreds of thousands of people. I love ministering in Toronto because I can preach to so many different people from so many different cultures and nationalities and many of them prayed with me to receive Christ.
My next destination was a new farm show in the uttermost parts of the earth, Torrington Wyoming (they didn’t even have a Walmart in Torrington). The only thing Torrington had in common with Toronto is that their names both start out with “Tor” and that is where their commonality ended. The Torrington Farm show was on the East Wyoming college campus, so we had a lot of college students and faculty come to our booth as well as high school students and many of them prayed with me.

When the farm show in Torrington was over, I flew to California by invitation from Scott Hinkle Ministries to help with the Mario Murillo tent meeting in the Los Angeles area. This was a big blessing and very encouraging to see God moving so powerfully in an area in so need of revival.

Another place in need of revival is the Navajo reservation where I ministered in October. You can always tell what the devil fears by what he attacks the most. This is why he attacks places like Los Angeles, St. Louis, and the Navajo people. While ministering at the Shiprock Fair parade they had a float that had pictures of young Navajo girls that have been disappearing off the reservation and some even found murdered. There is also witchcraft, incest, a high divorce rate, drugs, alcohol, and immorality of all kinds on the Navajo reservation. The good news is that where sin abounds, grace does much more abound. Through the years, men of God have said that revival would begin among the Native Americans. At the Shiprock Fair we immersed the fair with the Gospel by having a prayer booth inside the fairgrounds with Pastor Robert Tso and Victory Life Church from Shiprock. We shared Christ and His Word with people as well as prayed for peoples needs. I also preached at an outdoor revival meeting at Victory Life church and at their Sunday morning service.

In Closing, even though I have ministered to so many different cultures, nationalities, and people groups the last few months, the people all have one thing in common. They all have a void inside them, and they are all racing toward an endless eternity. No matter who they are and where they come from, there is still only one answer that will fill the void and give them eternal life in Heaven and that is receiving Jesus Christ the Son of God as Lord and Savior. This is why I saw a girl cry when her mother prayed with me to be saved in Toronto. This is why I saw those same tears after a Navajo mother who had a troubled daughter cry while she was praying the sinner’s prayer with me.

This is why I am excited to finish this year strong with farm shows in McCook Nebraska and Tulsa Oklahoma because I know there will be many people just like in all these other places that are in desperate need of that peace that only Jesus can give. Thank you for your prayers and support that makes it possible for me to reach these people.

In Christ,

We are excited to report that we continue to see great signs of revival among the young people.

I will start by with the South Carolina FFA State Convention in Greenville. In 2019 we did the South Carolina FFA Convention for the first time at Clemson University. I was disappointed because, although I had a few connections, hardly anyone came to our booth. It was so slow that I went out on the campus of Clemson to pass out tracts. I thought to myself that I would not want to do that convention again due to lack of receptivity. Thank God we didn’t stop. The convention this year was just the opposite. All day long kids kept coming to our booth with a hunger to hear about Jesus. A number of them prayed with me to receive Christ. One kid even told me that a group of them stayed up in their motel praying and studying the Bible until one in the morning. Revival is happening.

My favorite testimony from South Carolina was when two young girls came to hear the message. One girl said she had already received Christ as her Lord and the other one said she hadn’t. Long story short, the one girl that hadn’t been saved prayed with me to receive Christ and after the prayer she and her friend got super excited and giddy that she was now born again. After I gave them instruction and teaching on how to live the Christian life and follow up material, they left. Later on, they both came back to our booth so excited about her being saved that she wanted to have a picture with me. At that point I gave her more teaching on living the Christian life. I ended up giving out a whole box of Book of John and Romans books in South Carolina.

The Kansas and Mississippi FFA State conventions this year were also better than they have been in the past as far as receptivity and the number of kids praying to receive the Lord. Teenagers have even thanked me just for spending time talking with them about the Lord.

One young man at the Alabama State FFA Convention said he was Chaplin of his FFA Chapter but that he still hadn’t repented. I spent some time ministering to him and he ended up giving his life to Christ.

We just finished the FFA State Conventions for the year with a big bang in Orlando Florida and in downtown Dallas Texas. Both went well. In Texas we had three good solid days of ministry to teenagers who live in the big cities of Texas like Houston and Dallas, to small town kids from places like Muleshoe Texas, and teens who live on the border of Mexico. During all 3 days we had a constant flow of kids, and kids praying to receive Christ from the very beginning to the very end.

Not only have many FFA kids prayed with us to receive Christ into their lives, but we have also had some of them come for prayer for personal struggles with pornography or family issues. Some have come to our booth seeking advice on starting their own ministries.

We have had many Ag teachers come to our booth and thank us for what we are doing. Some have made the comment that they are limited to what they can share in the classroom, so they were glad we were there. This makes me thankful that I have the freedom to talk to the kids about things like feeding their spirit and faith with Gods Word, the importance of living a life of praise to God so we can run our race with joy, getting plugged into a good church and guarding our thought life and what we say. Since most of these kids are farmers, they understand when I tell them that everything we think, speak, and do we are planting a seed that we will eventually reap a harvest on. The importance of teaching these basic fundamentals of Christianity was reinforced to me at the Mississippi FFA State convention when a girl told me she had been using tarot cards during her prayer time and she asked me if this was okay. Thankfully I was able to tell her how demonic this is and that she is to look to the Word of God and the Holy Spirit for guidance. This also makes me thankful that we give out good literature, including New Testaments and John and Romans books that will help people get on the right track in their Christian walk.

I feel like we are continuing to do our part to help save this nation through ministering at these conventions and farm shows.

Now I am excited about the upcoming farm shows which will start up again in August with Dakota Fest in Mitchell South Dakota, the Farm progress Show in Decatur Illinois, Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island Nebraska and our Navajo Outreach in Shiprock New Mexico.

Thanks so much for your prayers and support, this helps make all this outreach possible.

Outreaches for this year started for us in West Monroe Louisiana at the Ag Expo. We have done this show for many years now. Like in the past, we had a lot of traffic at our booth with people receiving free gifts and most importantly hearing the Good News of the Gospel.

After Louisiana, it was on to the other south, the much colder south, Sioux Falls South Dakota. A volunteer worker who joined us in South Dakota said that even though he has taught the Bible for many years, he has never done much evangelism and that he was learning from us on how to do it. At one point he said he had prayed the salvation prayer with 9 people at the Sioux Falls farm show.

At the end of January we were at the Iowa Ag farm show in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Once again, we had some good local help. The things that stick out in my mind about this farm show was the large number of FFA kids who visited our booth to hear the Gospel and some even prayed with us. A lot of the people showed us appreciation for being there. Living in the days we are living in, I have noticed more receptivity to the Gospel including in Iowa.

The Western Farm Show in Kansas City and the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky were in February. In Kansas City, they bused in 4500 FFA teenagers from all over Kansas and Missouri on Friday morning. There were so many kids surrounding our booth that at times I would stand on a chair to talk to them. The kids gravitate to us because they are hungry for truth that they don’t get in today’s society. And once again the vendors around us were truly amazed at this move of God.

At the Cedar Falls farm show a few days later there were a couple of young men that came to our booth with an extreme interest in spiritual things. I was able to spend about 15 minutes with them talking about Gods Word. More and more God is bringing young people to us who really want to know God and to be used by Him and they will just stand and listen as we pour the Word of God into them.

In March, my wife and I traveled to Logan Utah to minister at the Utah FFA state convention. For being such a Mormon state, we really had good results. One teenager came to our booth on the second day. He asked me if I remembered him, and I did remember praying with him the day before to receive Christ. He came back to tell us that he had repented of his sins and he went out and bought a Bible.

The next week I traveled to Redmond Oregon to minister at the Oregon FFA state convention. We had very good response despite the culture of that area . One girl said she wanted to go to hell, but after hearing the Word of God, she ended up praying to receive Jesus with Terry Morrison. After praying with us to receive Jesus, another kid brought a friend to us so we could preach to him about Christ.

At the end of March, Mike Weaver and I ministered at the Nebraska FFA State convention in Lincoln, Nebraska. God is definitely doing something special in Nebraska where hundreds of kids in a two day period prayed with us to receive Jesus. One of the kids was a foreign exchange student from Germany. Another girl got teary eyed after praying with us. The thing that sticks out the most to me about Nebraska was how several times these young farm boys would come to our booth acting tough and very uninterested, not taking the literature from me but then after standing there for awhile listening to me preach the Word of God they would end up praying to get saved and would even thank me.

The year is just beginning, and it is only going to get better as we continue to travel coast to coast sharing the good news. Between now and August we have 15 outreaches scheduled in 14 different states. We appreciate your prayers for safe travel and favor to see revival continue in our land. (see Itinerary)

Thank you for your prayers and support to make this possible.

In Christ,

JGM News December 2022

As we are fast approaching 2023, it is undeniable, our world has changed drastically in the last 20 years. One thing I love about Gods Word is that it does not change in its message or effectiveness to conform to the world and all it’s weird and demonic ideologies. God’s Word is the same yesterday, today, and forever and it is Good News not bad news.

I have talked to so many people today that have quit listening to the news because there is so much bad news that produces fear and not faith like Gods Word does. The angels’ proclamation in Luke 2:10 is still true today.

Do not be afraid, I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all people

Notice that the Good News from Gods Word doesn’t produce fear but great joy.

Recently I was sharing at a church that at farm shows and FFA state conventions, our booth is always the busiest and most popular. Some would say it is because we give away free gifts, but I believe the biggest reason is because people are hungry for good news and what better news is there that Jesus took our punishment on the cross for all of our sins, and rose from the dead to bring man and God back together, to make a way, the only way for us to get into heaven. It will never get old to me to proclaim the best news in the world that we have all sinned and the wages of sin is death, but according to Romans 10:13 whoever calls on the name of the Lord Jesus shall be saved. God has a home in heaven for everyone who will receive Jesus into their lives as Lord and Savior. Notice the angel said this good news is not for just some people, but for all people of all races, all ages, all nationalities, farmers, city people, and everyone in between. If there is repentance, belief that Jesus is the Son of God, and making Jesus the Lord of your life, then you are guaranteed a home in heaven.

God has called everyone of us to share this good news to a lost and dying world. A short while ago, I talked with a man who is so tired of the bad news in this world that he bought his tombstone, put it in a cemetery, and now he is waiting to die. But if we Christians don’t stick around to tell people how to be saved, then who will. The devil and his crew certainly won’t. It is time for us Christians to realize that we were born for such a time as this and that we are to unpack our bags so to speak because the absence of our light and truth will just bring more darkness and lies.

The Harvest is Plentiful, but the Laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the Harvest to send out Laborers into Harvest Luke 10-2

Several years ago, I was walking through Times Square in New York City, and I was amazed that out of all those millions of people walking the streets of New York, there were so few preaching the Gospel. When I began to share the Gospel with some of them, it was the deer in the headlight’s response. One young FFA student at the Alabama FFA State convention last summer told us that we are the only ones he has seen out preaching the Gospel (even though I know there are others that are doing it also). This is why Jesus said the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. And then he told us not to pray for revival but to pray for more laborers.

When it comes down to it, our being faithful in proclaiming the Gospel message is a matter of life and death, heaven and hell. I will close with this story to illustrate my point. Years ago, a mother of an FFA student called the Fellowship of Christian Farmers office and said her son came to our tent at the National FFA convention, heard the Gospel message, then he prayed to receive Jesus. She said he had been a troubled boy but now he was on fire for God and living for him. He also started going to youth group. She said a month later he died and went to be with he Lord. I could tell you several stories very similar to this one. These stories are not to glorify us but to stir us all up to be witnesses for Christ.

In 2022 we prayed with hundreds of people to receive Christ at farm shows and FFA State conventions in states coast to coast. We even were able to minister at the Shiprock fair to the Navajos this fall, which we hadn’t been able to do since before COVID hit. We had a good team of people that saturated the fairgrounds, carnival, and parade with the Gospel. We already have a busy schedule lined up for 2023 and with God the best is always yet to come. Please pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have a free course. Pray also that we will preach the truth in love more boldly than we ever have.
