June-July 2004 Newsletter
"And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her,
and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not."
years ago this newsletter regularly reported a goodly number of souls saved in each
months time, but for several years this report has been scant. June and July boasts of over fifty souls
saved. These are largely connected with
the publick ministry of the churches we worked with this month. A few were a result of house to house work. We had a lot of help though. Many personal workers went about the job of
witnessing while the preaching was heard in the background.
What a beautiful sound to hear the gospel being proclaimed publickly
my ears, and I believe to the Lords as well. I
truly believe the Lords ears and heart are attuned to the sounds of publick
preaching and soul winning.
Ron Robinson hosted the first Alaskan Blitz street preachers convention to a very
high degree of success. Twenty seven skilled
labourers in the Lords work ministered both publickly and house to house in the
following cities. Fairbanks, Wasilla,
Palmer, Nenana, Denale, Eagle River, and Anchorage.
All of us reported 31 souls saved. If
the Lord leads Pastor Robinson to make this annual, I highly recommend your attendance
strong witness against Amsterdam, Holland by
30 veteran witnesses still has not resulted in preaching the Hell out of Amsterdam. Host Pastor Jake Hussen sure does a good job
hosting and is so very consistent in leading his church in a strong witness throughout the
year. We had missionaries from Sweeden, Ukraine,
Canada, Germany, and others in Netherlands present. Several
were saved on their knees in the publick area outside the train station.

time. We preached in two locations and saw 22 souls saved.
His people were thrilled with this spiritual exercise as only publick
ministry can produce and they swore to continue. The
SWAT team loves results like this. We also
ministered publickly on the streets of Frankfurt, Germany with Missionary Troy
Green, in Heidelberg, Germany with Missionary Tom Castellaw in Brasov, Romania, and Detroit,

ROMANIA ON THE HORIZON
to Europe this month included a casual (Ha) 25 hour (no AC) drive from Frankfurt, Germany
to Brasov, Romania. I spent a very profitable
two days there arranging for our arrival. We
now have housing, an address, and a visual idea of just what the Lord has in store for us
in the ministry there and throughout eastern Europe.
We are looking at a wide open door of opportunity and we are very eager to
engage and immerse ourselves in this fruitful work. We
have plans to leave USA for our new ministry on Sept. 30, 2004. Please continue to pray that the many details that
remain can be taken care of. Our gracious
thanks to the many churches and individuals who have decided to support the SWAT team
ministry in eastern Europe. Any questions
call us at 530-304-6107.
We continue to have need of
nothing but your prayer...
