In 2007 The Lord directed me to bring two of my sons out to the summer camp meeting at The River! They were both called to bible school and almost immediately after arriving were telling me of how many souls they had led to Jesus! They were fortunate enough to go on a few of the G.A.T.’s
Back in the U.K. I had always spoken to people about Jesus and had led maybe 20 or so to salvation! I was on the outreach team and regularly went out witnessing to people.
However, when the boys shared with me some of the testimonies of what The Lord had done through them I became hungrier to see The Lord move in lives to see souls saved!
Winter camp meeting in 2008 I came over to visit the boys and my first soul winning trip was to a nursing home! This is stuck in my mind forever! One lady I spoke with was completely covered under the sheets, when I started to talk to her she came out from under the sheets and with a beaming smile said, “I have been waiting for you!”
Now a student at R.B.I. go out regularly with the teams winning souls for Christ! I love it when you pray with someone and they ask ‘ what is that I’m feeling’ or sometimes, ‘what are you doing to me’. You tell them it is the power and presence of God and can see their whole countenance alter, before your eyes they are being transformed!
I have become much bolder being here and have jumped onto buses while in the station and souls have been saved! It is very satisfying when you see them come to the church!
I am part of the bus ministry and now also part of the team that does outreach in Robles Park! This week will be our forth week and we are having a ‘cook out’, in English a bbq.
The first week we had fifteen come, all children. Last week we were up to thirty nine! This week will explode in numbers, as people will always come for food (and some of these children don’t eat well or often).
