Orlando great! Big prayer request...

The Orlando, FL trip was so powerful as God seemed to bring about divine encounter after divine encounter. I was able to have some really deep conversations about Jesus with a number of people, challenging them to grow in their faith. It was also great to spend time with my friend Jeff and his family. They are very dear to my heart, so being able to have quality time furthering our relationship was such an encouragement to me.

A big prayer request for Stronghold Ministries is that we are looking for a small office space/warehouse that can serve as a "hub" from which we can serve the community where God has placed us. Our Thursday evening Bible Study group really has a heart for reaching out to the poor and needy to help meet both their physical needs and their need for Jesus. To put it simply, our desire is to put our faith into action in our community. This office space would not only allow me to move my office out of our of apartment to an adequate space, but also provide storage space for food and clothing donations that can be dispersed to those in need. Please be praying that God shows us the right space at a price that we can afford. We are definitely stepping out in faith, but it is a step that God has commanded us to take. Thanks for your continued prayers!

In Orlando, FL this week...

I will be traveling to Orlando, FL this week - Tuesday through Sunday - to both speak at a men's luncheon and minister at the Europa Pro Bodybuilding Show. I will also be spending alot of time with my good friend Jeff (above). It will be my first trip away from home since our son Silas was born. It will be so hard to leave Holly and Silas, so pray not only for them as I'm gone, but also for me! May God move mightily in and through me this week! Thanks for your prayers...

Bible Study resumes tonight!

After a month of break due to the birth of our son, we are again resuming Bible Study at our apartment here in Studio City. It has been exciting to watch the Bible Study grow in the weeks leading up to our break. Please pray for tonight, that God's Spirit would lead us and change our hearts to become more like the Jesus whom we serve. Thanks!
