Touching Lives in TX & OK

Dear friends and Partners

We had an awesome time the last two weeks in TX and OK.

On July 21-24 we ministered at The Gathering at Midland and had an awesome time ministering to children and families in Midland, TX. During this 4 day event we saw 26 people born again and many lives touched by God.

On July 28-31 we ministered at the Southwest OK district Nazarene kids camp in Tishomingo, OK. During the 4 days of camp we saw 68 children come forward to be born again and we also saw God move mightily and touch many life's of children and adults attending camp. During several services we saw many children on their faces going deeper with God and surrendering their life to Him.

Outpouring of Gods Love in NC & MN

 Dear Friends & Partners:

We had an awesome 2 weeks ministering in NC and MN.

The week of July 8-12 we ministered at a Camp in Blowing Rock, NC and saw an outpouring of God's love on all that attended. Almost the entire camp was on their faces worshiping God and experiencing his love and presence several times during the week.

During the week of July 15-18 we ministers in Fergus Falls, MN and saw over 100 people come forward to be born again including several parents. It was a powerful week spiritually in this small community. Many children attending were from the community and other churches that do not teach salvation. We saw lives touched, people delivered from chains of bondage, and encouraged to start growing spiritually.

below is a letter the Children's pastor send me after the event

The Jubilee Gang came to the Naz in Fergus Falls, MN for four nights of Summer Slam for kids ages 5-12.  It was a great week for the Kingdom of God as 100 people came forward to be born again----two of them being adult workers/parents of the kids attending!  One mother/worker was the first one to come forward to pray one night after her two adopted children were born again a few nights before.  There was much spiritual warfare going on with this particular family prior to Summer Slam and especially prior to the mother getting saved.  That evening right before we started Jerry was able to powerfully pray for this woman to rebuke the work of the enemy in her life.  She was saved that evening.  She now says she is overflowing with peace, joy, hope, strength and too many other things she can't even put into words!  This is what it's all about!  The 170+ kids who came throughout the week loved every aspect of the Jubilee Gang's ministry and they listened better than I have ever seen before!  We had feedback from our workers on how clear the explanation of being born again was each night and how carefully Jerry handled the altar call.  Our workers liked that it was fun yet more challenging for the kids spiritually than our normal VBS's that we have done in the past.  I cannot  say enough good about Jerry and his wife Candy and the work they do to reach kids and their families for Christ.  The only regret I had was making this solely a kids event and not a family event.  Parents really need to be saved too as so many don't know Him yet they are three to four times more influential on their children than even the church.  Think of how many kids we will hold on to in the church if we also have their parents!

Awesome week of ministry in CT

Dear Friends and Partners:

We just finished an awesome week of ministry (June 26-July 2) at 2 churches in CT. During these 2 events we saw 43 people born again. Our granddaughter Aeva got to go with us on this trip and responded to an invitation to be born again during one of these events. I had the privileged of leading her to Jesus. I almost cried while we were praying. (See Pic Below)

After these 2 events we came home to celebrate my birthday on July 4th with a few friends and family. Its very rare that I am home for my birthday. Usually we are ministering at a Camp or church somewhere across America. It was nice to be able to be home this year for a few days. Next week we will be ministering at a camp in Blowing Rock, NC, then we head to MN, TX, OK, LA, & MS during the months of July and Aug.

The map below shows where we have been just in the last 3 weeks. During this time frame we have traveled 4100 miles.We ministered in 5 churches in the following cities Bakersfield, CA - Yuba City, CA - Brousard, LA - Glastonbury, CT - Cheshire, CT, and spent over well over $2000 on gas and seen over 250 people born again!
