Jan-Feb Prayer Letter 2011

January – February 2011 Prayer letter

Dear Pastor, Church Family, and Co-laborers,
    “Grace be unto you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.” These words the apostle Paul wrote to the church at Philippi, speaks our heart to you. We are so grateful to all of you for your faithful support and prayers for our family. We hope and trust each of you had a blessed Christmas and are ready for a new year to serve the Lord.
     The month of December was a little slow as far as deputation goes, but with the start of the New Year we have been very busy. Already we have been in several churches in NC, GA, SC, and TN sharing our burden including a few missions conferences. The Lord has blessed us with some tremendous services along the way. We are so grateful to the Lord for opening doors and keeping us safe as we travel. Also, God has blessed us with four new supporting churches so far this year and for this we are so thankful. Please continue to help us pray for God to open doors and burden churches to partner with us in reaching the Incarcerated of America.
    We will be in another prison revival in a youth facility during the month of March. Please pray that God would bless this meeting and that many would come to know the Lord Jesus Christ. The last time we were at this facility we spoke with a young man who had never read a bible and had never heard anything about the saving power of the Lord Jesus. He didn’t get saved that day but for the first time in his life he heard the good news of the Gospel. We left him with his first ever bible and some literature about salvation. Pray for this young man and others who have never heard about the grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s hard to believe that they are those here in the bible belt of America who have never heard the Gospel, but the fact remains that there are! Many of which are hid behind the walls of a prison just waiting on someone to give them hope. “How shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? How shall they hear without a preacher?” Ro.10:14
    We continue to go to Craggy Correctional and Buncombe Correctional in Asheville NC on a monthly basis and the Lord continues to bless at these facilities. The last service at Buncombe Correctional we had our largest crowd to date. The Lord moved in a mighty way and several men where in the altar getting help from the Lord. It is an encouragement to see God work in the lives of these men. Please keep praying for souls to be saved and for lives to be changed inside the prisons of America!
   Please continue to pray for us as we travel and try and raise our support. It is our hearts desire to be used of God and to bring him glory in all we do. Thank you again for everything. We love each one of you and look forward to seeing or hearing from you soon.

                  There Is Hope,
