Junior Bible quiz

Today I spent the day at State College assembly of God at the semi-finals match for the Junior Bible quiz team that I help coach. They did a wonderful job by just getting to qualify for the semi-finals and I was very proud of them for this accomplishment. They had 3 regular matches and placed first place in the district that they compete in. This is how they were able to go to the semi-final round of competion. Even though they did not win today or advance to the finals it was incredible for them to have made it that far and have learned many memory verses and facts about the scripture which is what it is all about. Any one who is not fimilar with Junior Bible quiz that has young children, I encourage you to look into it because it is a great way to teach your children the word of God and to have fun while doing it. The children that I have been involved with over the last couple of years have enjoyed it very much. God Bless all of you.

blogging again

Hello all,

It has been a couple of weeks since I last entered a post so I felt it was as good of time as any. Many things have been happening since the 13th of January. As far as my ministry with Open Air Campaigners I conducted a training at the home of a friend of mine that is interested in going out into the open air once the weather gets warmer. I spoke to a fellow evangelist with Open Air Campaigners and he is was going to preach at a college in Maryland for the last couple of days. Cold... is all I can think about but, I know Paul and he will stay warm because of the compassion and conviction that he receives through the Holy Spirit. I pray he is able to reach may with the gospel message. The training that took place at Luke's house was incredible. I enjoyed teaching him some simple object lessons and he is excited about learning more and being able to go out and preach this spring. I pray that God will continue to raise up many more individuals that want to be trained and become bold in Christ to share their faith. Have a great night and God bless each of you.

Boston branch trip

Praise the Lord,

I spent three days at the Boston branch of Open Air Campaigners and it was incredible. God's spirit was very evident while I was in Boston preaching the gospel in the subway. I had never been in the subway before and just the experience of being able to speak to people about the eternal truths of salvation while they waited for the train was wonderful. Many people were very receptive and took tracts and many people heard a clear presentation of the gospel. I look forward to going back to Boston in the future and spending more time with the remarkable group of evangelist in that City. I am planning to visit New York City and also Washington D.C before I finalize which city I will spend my internship at. To all of the Christians that are reading this please pray that I will be open to the leading and direction of God as he reveals to me the city that He would have me go. May God bless you in the ministry he has given to you and if you are still searching for the place God can use you keep your eyes on Him and He will reveal it to you.

In Christ,
