I just spent a week in the State of Louisiana for at a graduation work shop, with the Louisiana Baptist University / Theological Seminary (LBUTS.)
What a blessing this has been. I had some great fellowship and training with alumni from South Korea, Brazil, Venezuela, and others from all across the United States of America.
“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.” 1st Timothy 1:12
During my free time I was able to go out and witness and distribute many IPOC Gospel tracts.
Today, the Lord put it on my heart to do some open air preaching as well. I’m just a sower of the seed, so the results are up to the Lord (video here.)
Please note that none of this education, and/or any other travel costs came from IPOC funds. It was all paid for from our families own personal earnings.
“Thine, O Lord is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name. But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.” 1 Chronicles 29:11-14.
