It is hard to believe that one fourth of 2018 is history. Well, when you are having fun, time flies. We have been having some exciting days. There are still many churches that have a burden to see the lost saved and the saved revived. That’s what this ministry has been for forty years and we are not about to change now!
Easter weekend was a great weekend with First Baptist Church in Alma, Arkansas. We had a packed building for a special Good Friday service and then on Saturday the church had planned a huge outdoorsmen event and the turn out was awesome. Then the church moved their Sunday morning Easter services to the convention theatre in Alma and again the crowds were excellent. There were so many decisions made during the weekend including forty who came for salvation! Thank you pastor Bob Shelton and the people of First Baptist for being wonderful friends to TLM!
The following Sunday, we were in Aurora, Texas at Aurora Baptist Church. We have been with pastor Jimmy Withers and his people many times and we always have great services. I felt compelled to preach on “Not Quitting On God” and the Lord blessed with altars full of people recommitting to staying on the firing line for Jesus, plus there were three adults that came for salvation. That never gets old!
Saturday morning, April 14th, I had the privilege to speak to about 200 men for a special breakfast at Hunters Glen Baptist Church in Plano, Texas only twenty minutes from where we live. Seven men called upon the name of the Lord for salvation! That afternoon, Connie and I flew to North Carolina to spend Sunday with Pastor Tim Stevens and the wonderful people of First Baptist Church in Whitsett, North Carolina. This was the third time to preach at First Baptist. Sunday morning the building was packed. Sunday evening a huge storm system moved through the area about an hour before the service. Attendance was down a bit but the spirit was outstanding. There were two that came for salvation and nearly 90% of the congregation came forward, broken and burdened for lost people in their lives. Pastor Tim and his family are wonderful friends of our ministry.
Saturday, April 21st, was Connie’s birthday. I surprised her by taking our family to Crossroads Diner in Dallas for a big breakfast. We will had a great time celebrating her birthday.
Saturday evening, I spoke to another men’s meeting in Sherman, Texas at First Baptist Church. They had about 250 men present. Because it was only an hour from home I drove back and then on Sunday morning Connie and I drove back to Sherman. I preached both Sunday morning and evening. God blessed in a wonderful way. There were fifteen that came for salvation and two men surrendered to preach the Gospel. We enjoyed having long time friends, Scott and Betty Collins drive up from Dallas to be with us Sunday morning. They joined us for lunch with Pastor Mike and Kim Lawson. Thank God for good friends.
