May-June 2016 Prayer Letter

Dear Pastor, Church Family, and Co-laborer,

            These last couple months have been very busy in the ministry! We have seen the Lord do some amazing things since our last letter! We started out in May with our regular services at Craggy Correctional. The Lord blessed in the service there and several men where encouraged in the Lord. God is really working at this facility. The inmates have been begging the chaplain to allow us to hold more services there than what we’ve been able to. Recently he contacted us and to see if we could come more often! This is an answer to prayer. We have been asking God for more of an open door in this facility for some time now! The Lord is faithful! From there we were at Buncombe County Jail, back at Craggy, and then at Yancey County Jail!

            Toward the end of May I preached in a youth meeting in Burnsville NC and during the first service we had five teenagers get born again by the grace of God. From there the pastor extended the meeting to the next night. God moved in power and revival broke out! The meeting went on for over two weeks! God moved in a great and mighty way during this revival! By the time it was over there were multitudes saved and four surrendered to the call to preach! I cannot explain all that God did in this meeting! He touched so many lives and changed so many people for His glory! It was amazing to see God work especially in the lives of so many young people! Our family is forever changed as a result of this revival! Our youngest daughter Emily, my mom, and my nephew all got saved as a result of this meeting!!! God is still in the saving business and He is still able to send revival! Hallelujah!!!

            After the revival meeting, we were right back at work in the prisons. We were at Craggy Correctional again and then at Yancey County Jail! The Lord really blessed in the services at Yancey County Jail and we were able to hold five different services there where we had five men call on the Lord for salvation! The following week we were at Brown Creek CI in Polkton NC. The Lord gave us a really good week in this facility and we had the privilege of seeing five men call on the Lord for salvation! We closed out the month of June back at Craggy Correctional for another wonderful service! Please pray for the men in these facilities! We are so thankful for those that get saved by God’s grace but there are still many that refuse the Gospel message. So many are blinded to the truth and we are praying for God to open their eyes before it’s to late!!

            We would like to say thank you for your continued prayers and support. It is humbling to know that God’s people give so we can do the work that He has called us to do. We don’t take that for granted but we pray for you all continually. Please keep us in your prayers as we endeavor to reach others with the powerful Gospel of Christ! Also, pray for our family as we have a very busy schedule coming up. Please pray for traveling mercies as we travel, for souls to be saved, and lives to be changed in our efforts. We realize we can’t do anything without Him!! God Bless!

           There Is Hope,
