Today I received a "victory report" from two Christian friends about an
evangelistic outreach that was held on February 8th at the Brooklyn
Tabernacle Church in New York City. (www.brooklyntabernacle.org).
Once again God used the story of my redemption to touch
On the Sunday of 2/8/04, during the
4 p.m. service, the FORGIVEN FOR LIFEvideo was shown at this large
church as part of an outreach to young people.
I was also able to prepare in advance
a six page message titled "Jesus at the Door" that was read by Associate
Pastor Tyrone McDonald. He also preached a message to go along with mine.
Then near the end of the service,
the invitation was given for those who wished to receive Jesus Christ
as their Savior, to repent of sin, and to place their faith in Him.
From what my friends Dan and Alice
told me, about fifty or more people came forward during the altar
The Lord always amazes me. For here I sit locked in a prison cell far away from
New York City. Yet
the Lord is not limited by such physical restrictions.
I'm so thankful that Jesus made a
way for me to go far beyond these concrete walls and solid steel
bars to share His love with people from all walks of life.
Truly nothing is impossible for God!
