NEHBC, I want to brag about you on two fronts. You are on fire!
First, you are in the midst of several layers of direct evangelism:
Two weeks ago you spread the gospel through Backyard Bible Clubs in our area.
Last week you spread the gospel through our week long Jericho Project and through our New Caney church plant’s Backyard Bible Clubs.
This week you are spreading the gospel in Dallas.
Next week you spread the gospel in Estonia.
The week after that you spread the gospel in Spain.
The week after that in Sturgis, South Dakota.
In addition to this we have our other evangelistic efforts such as Farrington Mission, prison ministry, disaster relief, international students, The Source For Women, etc.
You are on fire!
Second, in the last 28 day period, 34 people have been saved by our Lord through our direct evangelism efforts. Thirty-four miracles of salvation. In addition to this, literally thousands of lost people have received the gospel and been given the opportunity at salvation. Thousands.
You are on fire!
These two exciting pieces of news are inherently tied together: when we evangelize the lost, people get saved. Thank you for loving our Lord Jesus and his Great Commission so much. Thank you for living on mission. I am so proud of our church family. Jesus is Lord.
I would be remiss not to ask you to give thanks for our Leadership Team. When a church’s missions flame is burning bright, it is because there are leaders relentlessly pushing the envelope. The secret to our evangelistic fervor is that our Leadership Team is driven to evangelize the lost from our city to the ends of the earth: Bill Campbell, Cindy Rogers, Jorge Pinto, Brandon Bales, James Jordan, and Del Traffanstedt. Praise God for these gifts of His grace to us.
