“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.”

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I trust this letter finds you doing well.
As Independence Day approaches I am reminded of the day in my life when, by grace and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, I was made free. John 8:36 says, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” While I am thankful for the liberties and freedoms we have in our country, I am even more thankful for the liberties and freedoms that we have in Christ.
In our last letter I had asked you to be in prayer for a couple of revivals, one at Livesay Corrections in SC and the other at Lincoln Corrections in NC. The meeting at Livesay went great. There was a good number of men who came out to the services and one man came down during the invitation and asked the Lord to save him. The meeting at Lincoln also went great. We had great attendance and were able to visit on the prison yard on two days. One of the days the prison allowed us to feed the entire yard snow cones and hand out Gospel tracts in the process. We were able to hand out 400 to 500 Gospel tracts, putting one in the hand of almost every man on the yard. There were three men who came forward during the services and asked the Lord to save them.
On the fourth Saturday night of June, I had the privilege of going to Catawba Corrections in Newton, NC to preach a service. We had a great service there with two men asking the Lord to save them. This service ended up being on the same weekend we had our revival at Lincoln so we just split up: Brother Joe Hendricks finished out the revival at Lincoln with Brother John Fox there with him sharing his testimony.
Please pray for these new Christians that they will grown in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
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.
