How then can they call on the One they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
- Romans 10: 14,15
Anyone who knows me well, especially my wife, will tell you that I have a hard time asking for help. However, I realize from time to time that I cannot do everything myself. I also realize how much God blesses me when I make myself available and purposely choose to help others. That is why I am letting you know about a very real need that I am facing.
I have had the same vehicle that has taken me all over the country, singing and ministering for the past 13 years. It has served me and my ministry well, but after many miles of sharing the gospel, the time has come to replace it with something more dependable. If you have seen me in person and attended one of my events, you know that I share way more than just music with the people I am in front of. I also work closely with churches to make sure that there will be people in attendance who do not go to church and need to hear the gospel. I make sure that before the event has come to a close, that everyone not only knows what it takes to follow Christ, but they are given an opportunity to make that decision. I’ve been blessed to see countless numbers of people do exactly that, and see believers be drawn closer to the Lord. I’m asking you to send me. Let me paraphrase and pose what Romans 10:14,15 means to me right now:
How can those people where I sing ever believe? How can they believe in Christ, in whom they have not heard? And how can they hear if I don’t go and tell them? And how can I go and share the gospel with them through word and song unless you help send me.
I’m asking you to prayerfully consider sending me by doing the following:
Pray for my ministry. My family is becoming more and more involved in what I do as my wife and I train our girls for ministry.
Any financial donation will go toward purchasing a dependable vehicle to effectively take us where God opens doors.
If you are going to be selling a vehicle this year, would you prayerfully consider donating a portion of the profits toward fulfilling our transportation needs? Perhaps 10%, 25%, or more? I am sure that there are some who could afford to provide the transportation we are in need of with no problem. Anything you are willing do, we are most grateful!
I love how verse 15 describes those who share the gospel.
As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
I know that if that applies to those who are actually going and doing, then it has to apply to those who send and make it possible for some to go! I love you all, and I’m grateful for those of you who have supported me through the years. The work continues, and we will go. Will you send us?
