Dear TM readers,
Grace and peace in the Lord Jesus Christ. I'm writing to you this morning from Rockville, Maryland after seven days of being on the road, having already been blessed by the numerable experiences thus far; of the places we've been and people we've met, all of which I give thanks to God. The picture you see above is our team, from left to right: myself, Miles and Evan, and the van behind us is our home for the next while. The Lord has indeed blessed us with a tremendous team; the van is more than we could have asked, very spacious and comfortable, but what's more is how we as brothers have bonded wonderfully, having loving affection towards one another with a united mind in seeking the glory of our great God and Savior. Praise God!
This update will have to be brief as we are about to head out and preach day two at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. I'll be posting an update on GMU in another post. Last week we preached three days in New York State at SUNY Oswego and had amazing open air meetings, preaching the gospel of Christ to mostly civil, eager to learn students. Three classes even left their classrooms to come outside and hear us! The joy of it all is exalting Jesus Christ publicly to the unbelieving world, strengthening and encouraging the Christian body on campus, and preaching repentance and remission by the cross of Jesus Christ which is the power of God unto salvation. God is truly fulfilling the desire of my heart.
Crowds will come out to listen for hours and hours. "Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest." (John 4:35)
The following video gives you a good taste of what it is like to preach on a university. This clip begins very civil until a student who professes to be a Christian jumps up and proceeds to rail accusations against us and makes false claims about the Bible, causing a very exciting meeting to occur. Be blessed as you watch how the Word of God silences the mouths of the wicked:
God bless you dear saints, please remember us in your prayers as we desperately need them during this time. "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
