Busy In Branson

Constitution Seminar Outreach
            Earlier this month I was invited to hand out trillion dollar bill tracts at The Making of America Seminar. With the promoters blessing I was able to hand out tracts at the entrance to the Andy William Moon River Theater. The trillion dollar bills were a hit with everyone thinking about the recent budget crisis in Washington D.C. 

            One lady recognized the tracts from the Way of the Master. For me, this was a first, no one else this year responded to getting a tract with, 'oh, Way of the Master.'
            One man was so upset with the leaders of our nation that he began yelling at me. As his blood pressure went up, his wife tried to calm him down. He told me that he was so mad that he 'might just hit someone with his cane.' In this case, as in all, Jesus Christ is the only one who won't disappoint us. Elected officials will always to some degree let us down. I hope the people I met remember Jesus' faithfulness when they feel that their leaders aren't representing them. Jesus can give us a peace that surpasses our understanding while a storm rages around us.

Psalm 46
1 God is our refuge and strength,
   a very present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
   though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
   though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
   the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
   God will help her when morning dawns.
The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
   he utters his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
   the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
Come, behold the works of the Lord,
   how he has brought desolations on the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
   he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
   he burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God.
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth!”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
   the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

Sunday Sermon
            This past Sunday I was a guest speaker at Calvary Chapel of Branson. I spoke on evangelism. I was encouraged by some of the responses that I received. One brother n the Lord, told me he learned a lot. and wanted to take the Gospel to his old friends.  Praise God! It's wonderful to see the Holy Spirit prompting people to share their faith.

             If you would like to listen to it. just go to the home page of our website:
Care Packs
            We've been taking our care packs supplies to local food and Bible study outreaches. We are giving out tooth paste, toothbrushes, mini first aid packs, New Testaments, Gospels of John, tracts, and reading glasses. One of the local churches feeds 150 people at their Wednesday study. A good portion of them are children. This area seems to be far from an economic recovery.
 Prayer Requests
            Please keep us in prayer. We are facing some new challenges in our ministry. We have also seen God open many doors to us, in the Branson, MO area. At the same time we have had some doors shut unexpectedly. We need your prayer for the ministry, our family and our baby on the way. Thank you and God bless you.
