I haven’t told many people this but about 13 years ago I saw Jesus in person and talked with him. In this episode of Now Is the Time I share with you that experience and describe for you some things about Jesus that I’m sure you didn’t know before.
This month will be one of my most busiest speaking months so I really appreciate your prayers for me as I prepare for several conferences and seminars.
- March 11 -Expository preaching seminar in Nickolaev.
- March 14-16 -Conference in Eastern Ukraine training on how to minister to people from war zone with PTSD -Retired army chaplain Bill Barko will be speaking.
- March 18 -Youth conference on sexual purity.
- March 25th -Conference on how to share the gospel in the context of your family.
Why gospel and family?
I’m looking for several sponsors who can help us with the purchase of books and hosting the family conference at the end of the month. The reason we decided to focus on sharing the gospel in the context of family is because we noticed how often it’s easier for people to share the gospel with a stranger than it is for them to share it with a close family member. We will be speaking directly to the issues that make it difficult to share the gospel with someone who is close to you. This includes, sharing the gospel in marriage, sharing the gospel with parents, sharing the gospel with children.
We could use your help
We are purchasing 165 copies of Paul Washer’s book “The Gospel Call and Conversion” this book was recently translated into Russian and does a good job of explaining some of the basics of what the gospel really looks like and how true repentance and conversion look like in the life of a believer.
You can give through our mission here if you’d like to help us with the purchase of these books and the cost of hosting the conference.
In this episode I talk about the problem of worldview noise when sharing the gospel. Below is a graphic from that illustrates this issue. This graphic comes from our Good Soil seminars that we lead here in Ukraine. You can check out Goodsoil.com for a little more information.
