It was another amazing summer of ministry at Servant’s Heart Camp! The Lord brought us more teen campers again this year than ever before. I had the privilege to preach the last week of camp, and we saw God bless in some special ways.
Still vivid in my mind is one particular teen week at the “campfire” service. Teens began to give testimonies and spiritual challenges to one another, and it continued for a long time. God was clearly carrying on His work in hearts. It was a very special time!
Riggles Gap Bible Church
We finished our first revival meeting of the season last week at Riggles Gap Bible Church. It has been a blessing to get to know these people over the last several years. We saw God supply just the right messages for each service and hearts were sensitive to God’s Word.
MVBC Teen Rally
Months ago the Lord gave Pastor Tim at Mountain Valley Bible Church a burden to hold a teen rally for surrounding churches. God blessed and opened doors. We had a wonderful attendance and everyone did a great job! During the preaching, we dealt hard with distractions in the Christian life and dependance upon the power of Christ for spiritual victory. It was encouraging to see counseling taking place after the rally.
Mountain Valley Bible Church
For quite a while we were looking forward to joining Evangelist Thomas Engle for revival meetings at MVBC. The last time that we were there was in 2016. This week we helped with the music and ministered in children’s meetings. I enjoyed being able to work with the children along side of Liz. It was a first for us to be able to do it together.
Unique Preaching Opportunities
While at MVBC, the Lord provided an opportunity to address students in the Meyersdale Public High School. There was a special time given for me to share Biblical truths during a voluntary student gathering at the start of their school day. For about 40 minutes, I preached the story of Noah, God’s righteous judgement, and the truth of the Gospel. It was quite an experience! No doubt, the Truth made an impression!
It was also a blessing to be able to preach for the local radio station. MVBC broadcasts 15 minutes every week and I provided 3 weeks of radio broadcasts for this ministry. While recording, it’s exciting to consider the people who could be listening and make practical application of the Bible for their lives.
On Sunday we begin meetings at Calvary Bible Church in Hillsdale, PA, with Pastor John Traxler. Pray with us that the Lord will work in hearts and that we can be a special encouragement to this church. After a week in Hillsdale, we are headed to Maine!
