had been in Iraq for two years with the Air Force. I welcomed him home. He took a tract,
also. The only opposition was when a young person asked Bro. J.J if he was going in after he did the " Jesus Saves " thing.
Bro. J.J. and I have really been encouraged in the outreaches that we have been involved in. We are praying about witnessing at a rap concert next month in Monroe. Please pray that we can be used to see souls brought to the foot of the Cross ! Thanks again for viewing our blog. God Bless !
Sometimes we have go to make the best of a situation !
On Tuesday, I went through the drive-thru at Church's Chicken. I was informed that the chicken
would be ready in fifteen minutes. I didn't want to wait; so I went to Super One to get
chicken from the deli. While I was there, I gave out five Spanish tracts. I gave a tract to
the woman that gave me the chicken. I talked to a gentleman that had previously worked at
Walmart. He asked me to pray for him.
At lunch on Wednesday, I studied for jail service at the library. I left a few tracts lying
around there. On the way to jail service, Bro. J.J. and I left a few tracts at a Chevron. We
has a great service at Claiborne Parish Detention Center. A man that got saved a few months
ago has been giving Bro. J.J. letters to let us know how God I working in his life. He is
breaking it off with his unsaved girlfriend. He said that the Lord has helped him with his
anger problem. Tracts were left at McDonald's after service. I got to talk to a man
briefly as I gave him one.
My mother has been in the hospital since Wednesday morning. At lunch on Thursday, I went to
see her. She was getting a test done when I got there. I gave a tract to a man that was on the
phone. As I went, I placed a few tracts here and there. I put a Gospel of John and Romans in
the lobby.I stopped at the Dollar General to get pencil sharpeners for my children on my way
home from work. A couple went to a closed register as I approached the open one. I let them go
ahead of me since they were there first. When they were leaving, I offered the man a tract. I
thought that he wouldn't take it, but he did ! How was your week ?

Today we went to Ruston, which is about forty miles from where we live. Our first stop was a thrift store. I was able to get five free Gideon New Testaments. I give these away whenever I get them. I was able to witness to 7 Spanish men there. I keep Spanish tracts with me, too. After that , I gave tracts to two Spanish men that worked at the Chinese restuarant that we ate at. Then, at Walmart, I talked to Hosea and his family. He seemed interested in coming to
our church in the morning. My daughter talked with his daughters who were about the same age
as her. We had a good conversation about the Lord and church. I also gave tracts to two
young Muslim men as they were leaving the store. To my surprise, they took them !
A woman at the Dollar General in Sterlington recognized me from being on the corner by the
college where I have been twice this past week. She told me that she appreciated me being out
there . That was very encouraging ! Lastly, the carhop at Sonic was giving me a tea. I didn't have a good grip on it, so it ended up on my pants and our van floorboard. I didn't get upset.
When she brought me the new tea, I gave her a tip and a tract ! How was your day in evangelizing ?

Another sign has been made for the street ministry. It is the one in the picture above. We plan on making more and ordering a few. We also plan on making a couple of new crosses.
Last Tuesday night after prayer meeting at church, I felt like getting the large cross and
holding it in front of our church. I was just there for about five minutes when a man on a
bike came by. I gave a tract to him before he went to a store that was near by. He came back and
asked for money to buy something to eat. I was able to talk to him for a few minutes. I found
out that he used to sing In the choir at the church he once went to. I encouraged him to get
back to the Lord. I gave him a few dollars and a Gospel with Romans and John. After he left
the store, he stopped to thank me. Please pray for Dennis. I gave tracts to four other people
that were walking by.
I placed another " Are You Ready ? " tract holder at a laundry mat in Monroe. A kind
lady that was working allowed me to put it there.
Bro. Aaron and Sis. Victoria Hough have been at our church this summer,
helping out with children's church and preaching. They are graduates of Free Gospel Bible
Institute in Export, Pa . Sis. Victoria is originally from our church. Bro. Aaron went out
with Bro. J.J. on Friday night to the trio of clubs. They said that they were swarmed with bar
patrons as soon as they got there. They weren't able to preach much due to this. It was
like the first night we preached there. One intoxicated young man said that he read
Proverbs and even quoted the verses that dealt with drinking. He said that the hard part was obeying them. Bro. J.J said that a couple of fights almost broke out. We may be getting through to a few of the regulars.
We are planning to go to the annual Watermelon Festival in Farmerville on the night of July the 29th. There will be many attending this event. Please pray for us to reach some souls that night . Until next time, Happy Soul-winning !

the Lord for the freedom that we have here to share our faith and worship our Savior. Bro J.J. and I went
to the annual firework display held by the Monroe Jaycees on Saturday night. This attracts many
from the area. The fireworks only lasted for about thirteen minutes, but we evangelized for
almost an hour. We caught the crowd when they were leaving. We were able to give out over one
hundred tracts with only five hitting the ground. One man threw two on the ground after he took them from me. I got a little preachy for a minute. He came back a few minutes later to tell me that I shouldn't cram it down people's throats. I told him that I wasn't; that we were out there because we loved him. Another young man in a vehicle asked where we went to church. I told him the name of our church. He asked if we were apostolic. I told him that we were pentecostal, holiness, and trinitarian. He suggested that we read Acts 2:38. I proclaimed " I'm saved ! I'm saved ! I'm saved ! " We had a few brief conversations with a few. We were so encouraged from this that we went to the corner of Lamy Lane and Louisville Ave. for another forty minutes. We were able to give out a few more tracts to some who were stopped at the traffic light.
