Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 1:13)

double cause...

Neither Pastor Tim or I were able to go out street preaching tonight. Our assembly hosted a presentation by a missionary we support. The missionary, Brother Ross, presented his work in Australia; it was very informative and interesting. I probably would have enjoyed the event more if I wasn't afflicted by a nasty virus that has just gone through pretty much everyone at my work!

Remember us in your prayers, dear saints.

the effect of the cold...

Well, for all intents and purposes, summer is over in Canada. Temperature dipped as low as 6 Celsius or 43 Fahrenheit, and the streets of the marketplace reflected that reality. It was much quieter out there tonight; two weeks ago, Pastor Tim and I would have ministered to thousands (easily), tonight it was more like hundreds.

Nevertheless, we continued the work of the Gospel, and presented Salvation in Jesus Name to the lost sinners that were out and about in the market. We were greeted with adversity from the very beginning, with a young sodomite cursing at us and yelling that we should: "Go back home!" We also had to endure, for a time anyway, the folly of a wicked street musician who mocked us and blasphemed God.

Things more or less settled down after an hour of work. Both Pastor Tim and I had a few one-on-one conversations with sinners. Not sure if I would classify any of them as profitable, but who knows what the Lord will do? I spoke to an emotionally distraught woman who wondered why her boyfriend cheated on her. I replied that when one chooses to dance with the devil, one can't really complain about getting burned. She knew what I meant. I pointed out that she could easily find comfort and help with the Lord. Don't know if she will...

Couple of charismatics came by again. They were quite favourable to us and prayed for us. It was nice, but I really wonder at these souls true spiritual state. They looked so worldly. I don't know... perhaps the Lord will use our witness to get them to be better students of the Word. The Lord bless them and sanctifying them by His truth.

I dealt with a number of young people tonight who opposed themselves with much hostility. Many of them were clearly under the influence of alcohol. They cursed, mocked, and threatened, but all of them eventually walked away without any serious trouble. The Lord be merciful to them.

After about 2 hours of street preaching, I had to quit, having lost much of my voice. That's been happening quite a bit lately... don't know what's going on there. Pastor Tim picked up the slack and I went back to handing out Gospel tracts. We were out there for a total of three hours, doing our utmost to do good to our fellow man, and to glorify our God. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Remember us in your prayers, dear saints. We always need that support!

God bless you all. Have a blessed and safe weekend... especially the Lord's Day.

    Maybe you should have your vocal cords looked at. A friend of mine developed a callous on hers and it caused her to lose her voice with frequency and to be rather "raspy". She went through some "voice training" to help her learn to use her vocal cords in a better way, and the callous is supposed to go away.

    Still thinking of you and your family. Praying for you too!

    workin' at home...

    There are no Friday Night Notes tonight, dear readers. My wife and I are in the midst of home renovations, and we have spent much of the night painting and fixing up the house.

    Lord willing, I will be back next week, with Pastor Tim, for our customary night of evangelism.

    God bless you!

    a little late...

    Not too much to report on our night of evangelism yesterday, since I was only out there with Pastor Tim for about an hour and a half. We are in the midst of home renovations and there were tasks I needed to take care of Friday night.

    The marketplace was busy enough, but I was a bit surprised that there were no students roaming the streets. With the universities starting their Fall semesters, I would have thought the market would have been full partying students, but hardly any were out.

    I had a few one-on-one conversations with sinners; some of them were profitable, others, not so much. I spoke to a foolish couple who seemed more concerned about whether their dog went to Heaven than their own souls. I also spoke to a young Romanist woman and gave her a Gospel tract. Finally, Pastor Tim and I both dealt with a really messed up young man, no doubt damaged by substance abuse and lost in all manner of eastern religion.

    A number of Christians came by and encouraged me during my short time of evangelism. The Lord bless them. Pastor Tim stayed in the market after I left, I hope everything went well for him.

    Remember us in your prayers, dear saints.

    Have you ever preached to Mormons? Now THAT'S a whacky religion! One of their core truths is the following:

    "14 Since there are people who oppose our beliefs - our beliefs must be true

    We believe that those who write against us and assail our beliefs are proof that we are the only true church. Only the true church would have anything bad said about it. The Devil fights against the truth."


    BWAH HAH HAH HA! What kind of logic is that??

    The only Mormons I've dealt with were at my door a few years ago. They were "missionaries" from Utah, and I was appalled at how ignorant they were of the Scriptures, AND THEIR OWN RELIGION.

    I spoke with them for a good 15 minutes, and on a number of occasions I pointed out an aspect of LDS doctrine, and they all looked at me like a deer in the headlights.

    They looked dizzy when they left my front door. Poor souls.
