MY FIRST GIDEON CHURCH PRESENTATION

By
Real Estate Agent with Weichert Referral Associates

 Today was a day of firsts. I presented my first Gideon presentaion that was actually during a Sunday service. It was the first time I have spoken in front of any type of Church congregation that was not my home Church. And just to make it a little more nervewracking I was not held to the normal 10 minute presentation, the pastor , who is a former Gideon, let me have the whole sermon.

    All I can say is I need to learn not to get nervous beforehand. The Lord has it under control. The Church I presented in was Wantage United Methodist, it is a great little church. It was built in 1861, and althought they are hoping to build a bigger and more modern building this little church has character. It also has an extremely friendly congregation which made me feel at home.

  Everything about this church exudes friendliness and about 5 minutes before I was to go up I just felt the holy spirit come inside me and the Lord let me know He had it under control. I was a little nervous the first couple of minutes reading off my notes but then I remembered that I din't really need them anyway. People were smiling and paying attention and nodding their heads and I was just blessed.

 

PRAISE YOU LORD JESUS I AM SO FOOLIH TO EVER DOUBT YOU.

                                                             For His Glory

                                                             Hugh

Hugh - What a wonderful blessing and were there many willing to help get Bibles out there? Our church is not affiliated with Gideon's but we are collecting money to put Bibles in our local county prison at this time.

Hugh..it's always great to continue in our spiritual growth.  And sharing God with those we don't know is a great way to spread the gift!

Greetings from your brother in Christ and thanks for your love,

I am Pastor. Darpen Masih came to the Lord 1995, I was drummer with a Hindu devotional singers troop.while in a programme I heard about Jesus and I left that troop and stopped playing for any such Hindu devotional programme.And when my community came to know about my faith in Jesus I was athrown out of my home and worked with differrent churches and organisations for last 15 years.I am married and have a daughter named Angel (3yrs )and my wife is a sikh convert.I am the only believer from my family and all my family members still hate me for my faith.I am Looking for some supportes who willingly support our cause to carry on our vision among North Indians. I am working among Punjabi Hindus. I have a vision to start a new ministry registered with Government rules. I am looking for someone to help me to carry it in and help me. I wrote many letters to many churches but Anybody did not help me.they says that I will only prayer for you.we can’t help you but Bible says:-(PROVERBS:3:27,28)-(JAMES:2:15,17).I am telling you the truth.I have great sorrow and always feel much sadness because I do want start a new church in the Non-christan People for worship of God,but I have no money.because,I am very poor man. I want to rent a house.I have many believers,but no place for fellowship.Can you support me for 50$ dollar per month this work,I need your help. Please always remember me in your prayers.I’ll continue prayer for your ministry. Kindly keep this in mind and send us your reply as guided by the Holy spirit, I’ll highly obliged,if you get this work done.I am immensely waiting for your urgent response……………….
