April, by far, was the most densely scheduled month with several conferences and meetings. We were blessed to spend time with a number of pastors and lay people. We were able to hear some great preaching and also had opportunities to preach as well. The month has been fruitful, as a number of churches have decided to partner with us in the ministry. Lord willing we will see a significant increase in our support as churches begin to set their new Missions budgets. We have had a great time in the Northwest, and I’ve personally enjoyed spending some quality time with my parents and they have been enjoying their grand babies.
One of the major highlights this month was the opportunity I had to preach to the youth group at the church I grew up at. I shared my salvation testimony and preached hard on repentance. One of the teen boys raised his hand for salvation. He was visibly broken and weeping during the invitation. Praise the Lord he trusted Christ as his Savior that day!
We had a really memorable time of sowing some seed in the Taco Bell drive-through in Cle Elum, WA. As we got our food, I handed a gospel tract to the man in the window and said that he should visit our church next time he is in Oklahoma. He had a look of shock and surprise. He looked at the tract very closely and thanked me for it. That is one encounter that he won’t forget.
Next week we will be wrapping up our journey in the Northwest and will begin to head back towards Oklahoma. We will have meetings along the way and should get back into Oklahoma toward the end of May.
