This ministry started because of a prayer. A director of Firefighters for Christ, a ministry that has been distributing without charge the Word of God in audio format for about 40 years, told me that it was heavy on his heart to come up with a way to offer new believers a welcome packet. We prayed together. Because the need for evangelism and discipleship is so huge and my resources are limited, when I got back in my car I said, “Lord, what can I possibly do about it?”
The Lord has now blessed this ministry with a web designer and a web developer. They’re extremely busy but are offering to work many needed hours on this massive project – check out the Prayer List.
The Lord is already blessing the effort because, by the first week, two people received The Free Gift of God of eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Others learned about The Free Gift of God while in line at Costco, at a Boudin bakery, answering the tech support line, and other locations. The Word of God does not return void. Please join us in praying that all these people will also receive their eternal salvation.
A group of traveling evangelists visiting Long Beach, CA from Kansas, MO were excited to receive a stack of Salvation Pocket Cards. They wanted to help Brian, a local man that just received the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior, find a local bible teaching Christian church. We were just strangers; we are now united in sharing the Gospel and praying that many will be saved.
Even if only one person was reached through us with the gospel and got saved, to the Lord that one person is precious. The Lord doesn’t need us. He can use anyone else. We are grateful that He is using us.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:8 – 10
He was merciful to me in that after many years of rejecting the possibility of His existence, I received The Free Gift of God. The Scripture above is a great comfort for this ministry because it says that God prepared beforehand good works so that we would walk in them. Our desire to do those good works is directly linked to our response to His great love with which He first loved us.
But even our response to His love is only possible because Jesus is working in our hearts. I remember being blind to the Word of God and also having a heart of stone. Praise the Lord for His mercy. The Lord saves!
