Lets Praise God every waking moment.

I have been browsing the Internet and reading some Blog posts this morning and deep down I am a little sad to read that most people are moved by the gospel music sung by a lot of musicians and at that point praise the Lord and give all their problems and requests to the Lord but then cease to continue and worship Him every day.

We need to share the Gospel and be Faithful to Jesus everyday when things are good or bad. Bad things will happen around us and to us because these are the ways we learn and when we have Jesus at the helm of our life then we can learn and move on and be stronger in the Faith and knowledge that with all things that come our we we are able to overcome them in Jesus Name. Remember that just when you think there is no way out, GOD IS ABLE. God is able to overcome and defeat anything in this world and beyond.

I encourage you with all my being that if you believe in the Lord to pursue His greatness and follow him. Get into a good Bible based Church or Fellowship and make God the focal point of your life and great things will come to you.

I pray everyday for God's Blessing on everyone and that we can have our eyes and hearts opened to Him and start living the good life in Love and Harmony with God.

I hope you all have a great Wednesday and that the rest of your week goes well.
God Bless.

Great end to a fantastic weekend

Last night my wife and I attended the Hillsong Live concert held at the James River Assembly in Ozark MO. We had such a great time in worship and the auditorium was packed full. It is really great to be able to sing and worship God with so many like minded people in one place. God is so awesome. That made for a great end and a fantastic beginning to a new week.

I am so pumped this week and with the absolute belief that God is Able, I am ready to move yet another step closer to doing His Will and moving forward with Prison Faith Ministry. I am feeling that this is not just going to be a Prison Ministry as in reaching out to inmates but also a Ministry for those who are in a prison of addiction or torment. This though I will leave in God's hands till he instructs me to broaden the ministry.

With that I wish you all a great week and remember God loves each and every one of us. Have Faith, Believe and Stand Fast in the realization that God is Able.

God Bless.

Good Week

Well we have had a great week thus far. Met with my Church associate pastor and got some very valuable info and feedback regarding the ministry and how to approach things. We are praying every day for God's guidance with this ministry and we believe that it is by his grace that things are falling into place.

We ask that you keep us in your prayers and ask that you share our Facebook page and Website with your fiends and relatives. Please also make use of our prayer request page and also let us know what God is doing in your lives.

God Bless.

Website is up. Now the next step

Well I have got the preliminary website up and now we move to the next step of getting the non-profit registered and the tax stuff done. Again there are costs and I am praying that the Lord will provide in getting these things taken care of.
All I ask is that you all keep this in your prayers and it will be done. God is great and works wonders in our lives when we do his will. I trust that I am on the road and doing the right thing in Jesus's name.

We have had a wonderful weekend and have Laura with us this weekend which is always a blessing. We will be taking her back tomorrow afternoon after going to Church and stopping off in Neosho to visit with family. We are all looking forward to Thanks Giving and hope you and your family have a great one this year.

God Bless and keep you and yours safe and healthy.

A calling to ministry

I have prayed and believe that God had a plan on 10/18/2011 for me. He showed me a need to increase the army of Christians that go out to prisons and jails to share the gospel with inmates and win the hearts and souls of those for the Lord Jesus.

I was sent to prison on 10/18/2011 for being behind on my child support and was told that I had to spend 20 days in prison or pay $4500 to get out. This would catch me up on my arrears. I had fallen behind because of work situations etc. I was totally confused and yes I was mad at society and the judicial system. I was trying to figure out how I was supposed to pay for my child support now that they had locked me up and caused me to lose the job I had just started a week before the court date. It made no sense as you did not get any compensation when you are locked up for child support. So my time started that Tuesday evening. After a day or so I had spoken to my wife and we agreed that we could not borrow that sort of money as we now had no way to pay it back as I had lost the job I just started because of being locked up.

I met a few guys and we got chatting about various things. One thing I had noticed was that there was a lack of spiritual sharing and so I started to slowly share with them. We had many great conversations and shared lots of experiences about faith and I also noticed that after saying grace before each of my meals (Which I must say were the nastiest things I had eaten since my time in the military but still was food from God)  that slowly there were a few others that started to do it as well. I believe that there are a lot of Christians that get locked up for minor infractions like traffic violations etc. and when put into that environment feel intimidated to practice their Christianity for fear of being persecuted.

I want to let everyone know that at first glance going in there it is a feeling that I felt, and so I started to pray inside and God showed me my strength and washed my fears away. I have always and will always follow God's word and guidance and I want to share His word with all that I come in contact with. God will never forsake me and I pray every day for the strength to never let him down.

On  10/26/2011 to my astonishment I was called out of the cell and was instructed to go to booking. When I asked what was going on I was told that I was either being moved to another location or I was getting out. I was totally blown away when I was finally sent out to the lobby and there stood my wife. I started to cry and knew in my heart that God had provided something for us. After about 15 min I was calm enough for her to explain what had happened. I just want to say that God had sent his Angel to get me out as he had shown me what was needed and there was no need for me to be in there any longer.

And so I have been drawn to start up a Prison Ministry and to go out and share with any and all inmates that I can get to share with, the love that God has for them and that no matter what they have done in the past, God can forgive them if they just seek Him. I am doing a lot of research at the moment and still have a few obstacles standing in my way but I know that if this is God's will, He will make it happen.

If anyone has information for me about doing prison ministries I would love to hear from you. I have started to develop my website and would love and constructive input about the site and content as it is developed.

Praise and Glory be to God and I pray that you all have a fantastic weekend and take some time to look around and enjoy all the beautiful things that our Lord God has given us.

God Bless.
