Training Has Begun!!

Hello everyone,
Sorry about the delay in posting. Things have been quite hectic as we begin to gather the resources for the beginning of the Bible Distribution effort.

The mapping and tracking software came in this week. There is quite a bit to learn in using the software most effectively. It will help us to keep track of which households we have visited and which we still need to visit. It has some awesome capabilities that will help us to make connections between people and families. Please pray for me as I begin to learn how to use it. The finances for the cost of the software were miraculously provided, just in time for the beginning of the training. God's provision is perfect and always right on time!!

It has been an exciting two weeks since the last post, so let me try to catch you up.

Last Sunday, I had the privilege of preaching at Lindale Assembly. The message that God gave was a challenging message about personal evangelism and discipleship. Almost everyone in the congregation responded to the altar call for dedication to soul winning! The people of this church really have a heart for the lost and their surrounding community.

Tuesday evening, I conducted the first in a series of evangelism training sessions. Between 45-50 people were in attendance ( I didn't count, just an estimate ). Several people who signed up were not able to attend, but sent email and called to make sure that we knew that they would be at the next session. I believe that this group will be a catalyst for change in this city. They are excited - nervous - but excited.

We will be continuing the training process at Lindale Assembly next Tuesday.

I've decided to name what we are doing the CONNECTIONS MINISTRY. Through the Bible distribution and visitation portions of what we are doing, we are focusing on connecting people to God through Jesus Christ and also making personal connections and ways to connect people to our local churches. I think the name is appropriate.

I will begin the training process at 1st Assembly in Alvin, Texas this coming Sunday at 6 p.m. We have scheduled training sessions through May and June in Alvin, Texas.

I will also be preaching at Imperial Valley Assembly on May 18th as a kickoff to the CONNECTIONS MINISTRY there.

Pastor Jeff at Emerge Church has been quite busy with end of the school year testing. He is a school teacher. As soon as we can, we will begin the training process and begin reaching into the area that God has given him to plant a church.

Please pray for these churches, as they begin to extend their reach into their communities.

Looking forward to what God will do this week. If you are in the Houston area on any of the training dates, I'd love to see you there.
