“But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.”

It seems like the days have flown by since our last letter. I pray you all are doing well.
In our last letter I had asked you to pray about a revival meeting we were having at Lincoln Correctional in Lincolnton, NC. We had a great meeting with good attendance. I had the privilege of leading a young man named Lucas to the Lord during the invitation of the Friday night service. Please pray for him that he will grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour.
On a daily and weekly basis, I am at Livesay Corrections in Spartanburg, SC, where I volunteer as a Chaplain. It is such a blessing to be able to preach to the men there on a weekly basis and teach them the word of God. I believe it is the preaching and teaching of the Word of God that will get the job done and it will be that which evangelizes the sinner and edifies the saints. Recently, I’ve been working with a young man named Curtis. He came and spoke with me one day and told me he was sick of how he was living and needed to make some changes in his life. He said he believes he had gotten saved before but has not been living for the Lord like he should. After we talked for a while, he determined he was going to start coming to church and reading his Bible. Thus far he has stuck with it and has been very faithful. Please continue to pray for him that the Lord will work in his life. He is 26 and has been in prison since he was 18. He will be getting out in a few months and is wanting to do things differently. He is on the right track now and I ask you to pray for him that the Lord will continue to work in his life even after his release. The plan is to try to recommend him to a good Bible believing and preaching church where he can continue to grow in the Lord.
As always, I want to thank you for your faithfulness in giving and for your prayers. If there is ever a time when you would like for us to come by your church to give an update on the ministry or preach, please let us know; our contact information is on the left side of our prayer letter. You can also visit our website, which is listed at the bottom of this letter.
