San Diego "Youth Connect 2009"

Powerful! Life Changing! Challenging! How else can I describe the Service that I have just been in?

It was a great Spiritual Landmark for our youth and myself! God used Bro. Cody Marks to minister in the Holy Ghost and challenge each of us to reach to higher spiritual dimensions! I loved being with our teens and being able to pray a special prayer with each of them! It refreshed my spirit to draw the young guys close, hug and pray for each one! Tears flowed, dedications were made, renewal came to young men who were struggling to believe in themselves! But God let them know that He believes in them! Failure is not final! Get up and reach again! It's going to happen in your life!

But it did not stop there! My wife was able to do the same with our young ladies! They too, let the tears flow and became determined to live a "sold out" life for God!

The trip was filled with times of fun and laughter also! They went to "Old Town" San Diego, Hotel Del on Coronado Island (Some of the girls were a little scared of the Bridge to the Island! It's a little high!) and other sites. After Friday night service there was a lock in with lots of fun and food!

But the highlight for me was the services! Thursday's night message on Prayer is so powerful that we are making that CD available at our church for $3.00 this Sunday AM & PM! Pick one up in the "Book Center" and let it change your prayer life! Join me and let's make our church a powerful church of Prayer!

A Beautiful Granddaughter!

This week a wonderful new addition has been added to our family! Brandon and Rachael have been be blessed by the Lord with a precious daughter: Audrey Lanae Wilmoth! 7lbs 4 oz. and 20 inches long! Not only has our family been blessed but the Kingdom of God has grown!

It's important to understand that our first mission field is our family! Our children and grandchildren must be trained and developed in the ways of the Lord! Each generation has the responsibility to pass on the truth's of the Word of God. These truth's must be focused upon if they are going to continue to lead the people of God! They cannot be become thought of as "old fashioned" neither "out of touch with our world".

What are the truth's that we must pass on? The truth of:

1. "One God"

2. "The necessity of receiving the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues"

3. "Water baptism in the Name of Jesus"

4. "Separation from the World and separation to God"

5. "The importance of Spiritual growth through daily prayer & daily reading of the Word of God"

6. "Proper Christian living"

This list is not exhaustive but a simple 1st step!


Proverbs 13:22
22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children...

Join me and give your children and grandchildren the most valuable possession you have for an inheritance: The Truth's of the Word of God!
