GOD IS ALWAYS AT WORK AROUND US – (Experiencing God.)
One early Sunday morning, Troy arrived on Skid Row where we serve our Lord and all whom He sends to us. Troy had come to us with a heavy heart, all the way from Texas.
“Can I have a Bible, and can I serve at your ministry?” he asked.
“Yes, of course,” I replied, not really expecting him to come back again.
But week after week, Troy kept returning to help us set up the chairs for church, and to serve the tables at lunch. He became one of our reliable volunteers. We planted the seed of the gospel in Troy, and invited him and other volunteers and church attendants to the 2017 Harvest Crusade. While there, Troy accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. God gave the growth – “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.” (1 Corinthians 3:6) After the Crusade, we celebrated his new life and continued praying for him.
Soon after, Troy heard that his dad had passed away from a heart attack. We helped him make the trip home for his dad’s funeral. Troy was very firm in assuring me he would be back to serve the Lord at the “Church without Walls,” and asked me to baptize him. I advised him to seek God’s leading for where he should go next and what he should do. God spoke to brother Troy, and he has decided to remain in his hometown, work on a farm and study God’s word as he attends New Hope Church of Texas. I am waiting for the invitation to attend Troy’s baptism. Please pray for brother Troy, asking God to strengthen his faith, confidence and encouragement.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY. Hallelujah!
Romans 8:27–30 “27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. 29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.”
Brothers and sisters, please pray for Jesus’ faithful servant, brother George Montero who was admitted yesterday to Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center. The cardiologist is going to perform an angiogram on him today.
“praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints”
“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”
Last Sunday Alberto should have come to have a baptism class to get ready for this Sunday’s baptism. But he didn’t show up. I didn’t doubt his sincerity to be baptized. I only worry for his health and safety. Somehow the Holy Spirit told me, he is in the hospital. I kept calling him and his doctor and found out yes he is in the hospital. I am going to visit him. He was saved over 14 years but no one had asked him if he wants to be baptized. On Christmas of 2016 he shared his testimony with me. I asked him if he wants to be baptized. He said, “Yes. Thank you for asking me. No one asked me before…” If it is necessary, we will have the baptism done in the hospital for him.
Family. Will you please join me to pray for his healing and recovering?! Let us lift up Alberto Sanchez in God’s care.
THIS SUNDAY (8/20) We are going to take Church without Walls’ attendants and volunteers to SoCal Harvest Crusade after our service. Please pray that God opens our hearts to understand, open our ears to hear, open our mouths to sing praise to the Lord, and pray for our friends from Skid Row to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
If you are planning to go please let me know so we can meet there as ONE!
“Church without Walls” – Jesus Knows My Name Ministry.
Sunday service starts at 8 am
This morning we were blessed that Dr. Bob Lay and Al Ewart preached and prayed for our friends.
During the service a mom, Janet, ran in with tears on her face asking for prayer for her missing son. Our whole congratulation prayed for her.
The service ended with laughter, tears, hugs, and we sang “I Love You Lord” together.
What a wonderful God we have! Thank You Lord Jesus for the opportunity to serve You. We pray for Your will in our life and Your will be done. We pray for Your love and compassion in our lives helping us to fulfill Your second commandment. We humbly pray in Your precious name. Amen.
1 Peter 1:8-9 (ESV) 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, 9 obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
Lord, we ask for Your continued grace to help us live a pure life so others will see You in us. We humbly pray in Your precious name. Amen.
We are receivers of all the joy our friends at Skid Row brought to us on Christmas Day 2016. We are thankful and grateful that two of our brothers, Juan and Willie, accepted our Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior on our Lord’s birthday, and they are moving forward to their new life, following Jesus. Family and friends let us pray and celebrate brothers Juan and Willie’s new lives!
Jesus Christ is the best gift we receive from God. Today I received the best gifts. And these are the best gifts for our Lord Jesus Christ on His birthday, as the One who deserves to receive them.
Juan and Willie are already moving out of Skid Row. They will be facing challenges, obstacles and trials just as we are. They are newcomers in God’s house just as we were.
I am asking you to pray for our brother Juan who is going to move out of Skid Row next Tuesday to start his new life with Christ. And also pray for brother Willie; he is on the way to visit his sister at Sacramento with the best gift – He accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. And plus sober, to start his new life.
Jesus said to Peter, “Feed My lambs,” “Shepherd My sheep,” and “Feed My sheep.” –John 21:15-17 The Good Shepherd Searches. The Good Shepherd Finds. The Good Shepherd Brings Home.
“Then He said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest.” –Matthew 9:37-38
People can be transformed by God’s grace as long as they are WILLING and with EXACTNESS OBEDIENCE.
My friends, Skid Row is His harvest. Come be part of us!
…for Jesus Knows My Name Ministry and our friends.
We are packing Christmas Blessing Gift Bags to give out on Christmas Day. Please pray that each person not only receive the Blessing Gift Bag but RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST as their Lord and Savior.
You are a member of the family. Let us pray that asking God gives a new heart to whomever has not yet received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. “Moreover, I will give you a new heart, and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” – (Ezekiel 36:26). Strengthen our faith in Him and encourage us walk in His way. We humbly pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
