For the last two days I have been down at Ocean City, Maryland preaching on the boardwalk with Tom Fox and Greg Hunter. Tom is a partner of mine in ministry with Open Air Campaigners and Greg is an applicant for OAC. It has been a blessing having Greg come down and share in the ministry of preaching the gospel with us these last few days. Initially Greg was not going to be able to come along with us because he was leaving for Guatemala prior to this trip, but God worked things out by delaying his trip for a few days and this enabled Greg to come down and help us on the boardwalk. Having an additional preacher with us while minister on the boardwalk is very helpful. God has been faithful in sending out the people to hear the messages that have been preached. We were able to preach to over 250 people in just two days, Praise the Lord. Every time I think about the amount of people that are being reached with the message of salvation through the preaching of God's word through this ministry I am humbled and feel such joy to be a part of this awesome work the God is doing. I had said before that it is not about the numbers of people that we preach to that makes the ministry rewarding yet, the more people that hear the message means that more seeds are being planted and God will full fill His purpose through these seeds.
Tonight we will be going out again to preach on the boardwalk and I know that God is going to great things again for the His Kingdom. I ask that all of you who are reading this post please pray that we are able to go in the strength of the Lord and that many lives will be changed by the preaching of the gospel tonight. I pray that all of you have a wonderful day and I challenge you to look for opportunities to share Christ with someone today as you go on your way. To God be the Glory!

Well, it has been a few months since I have posted anything on this blog and I thought I better enter a post or many of the people that follow this blog may think that it is no longer active. There are many reasons why I have not posted here lately and none of them would be very good reasons I suppose because I need to be diligent and post my progress as a missionary and glorify God for the great things He is doing in my life. Zoran is taking a nap right now. For all of you who do not know, Zoran is my 1 1/2 year old son. I wanted to also let all of you know that I am now blogging at the blog site for the Washington/Baltimore branch office and you can read that blog by going to www.oacmd.org and the click on the link that says "our blog". I have also been posting on facebook as well. The myspacepage that I have is also very out of date so I probably should go and update that page as well. So as you can see I have quite a bit of updating to do and it has been difficult while preaching and raising support. As you know I have been in Maryland just over two months and it has been wonderful. I will be going to Annapolis tonight to preach and I will be preaching a new message tonight so I pray that God uses it to effectively call many people unto Himself. Please keep me and the team in pray tonight because there will be many people on the streets that need to hear the message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Well, I am going to go for now and as I have said in the past I will try to keep this blog updated and will inform all of you of the many ways God is using me in the ministry to accomplish His purpose in the lives of many. God bless and continue to look for opportunities to be used by God.
