January-Feburary 2019 Prayer Letter

Dear Pastor, Church Family, and Co-laborer,

            We have been very busy since the first of the year! We started off January with a revival at Craggy Correctional! The Lord blessed during these days of meeting and we saw three men call on the Lord for salvation. From there we were at Yancey County Jail for our regular services where we saw two more men ask the Lord to save them. We were also allowed the opportunity to help in a revival meeting at a very large prison in Pearl, Mississippi. On this prison compound they house adult men, women and youthful offenders. We faced some difficulties with the prison being understaffed that limited some of our services, but the Lord blessed the time we were allowed with several trusting Christ for salvation. One of the services that we were allowed to have was in the youthful offender unit. During this service we had 35 young men that came out to hear the word of God preached! God moved in a mighty way and 13 called on the Lord for salvation. 

            In February, the Lord blessed our regular services at Craggy and Yancey County Jail and we had four men ask the Lord to save them. We were also involved in a revival at a juvenile facility in Okaloosa, Florida. This is a level 10 juvenile (max) facility that houses some difficult youth. At this detention center we are allowed to conduct character classes during the school time and return for revival services in the afternoon. During the first day in the classroom, I was able to connect with a young man that was angry and confused about some issues in his life and was looking for God to show him if He was real. I told him it was no accident that God sent some preachers from NC to talk to him about the Lord. Later that night he came back for our preaching service. The Lord allowed me to preach about a new life out of II Cor. 5:17 and this young man came forward and cried out to the Lord for forgiveness!  He was they only one that asked God to save him during our revival but we had kids under conviction all week. From there we were in Alabama where we had the privilege of going into another Juvenile facility for a few days of revival! The Lord blessed our efforts in this facility and we had 24 young men ask the Lord for salvation. 

            Thank you for your continued support, both prayerfully and financially! We love and appreciate each of you!Please keep us in your prayers as we endeavor to reach others with the powerful Gospel of Christ! We have a very busy schedule in the days ahead and we realize just how desperate we need the Lord’s help! We also have some special needs we would ask you to help us pray about! Missy is needing some dental surgery in the days ahead and, as you know, this can be very expensive! Help us pray that the Lord would provide for this. Also, we have lost some support due to some churches struggling. We would ask that you make this a matter of prayer as well. 

             If anyone would like for us to come by and give an update to your church or if we can be a help in anyway, please feel free to contact us. Thanks again for your faithful support and prayers. God Bless you all!

               

     There Is Hope,
