GREAT DAY IN FORT WAYNE, INDIANA

Announcement time
4 inches of snow and still snowing
PASTOR JACKSON
























I flew from Tyler, Texas, to DFW and then caught a direct flight to Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Saturday. Pastor Doug Jackson who started THREE RIVERS BAPTIST CHURCH 15 years ago met me at the airport and took me to the Holiday Inn Express Motel. I checked in called the Mrs. and then went to do my 3 miles on the treadmill. I finished two chapters on one of my new books. I reviewed the final 5 manuscripts of "LET'S TALK ABOUT JESUS." I then called my converts to make sure they were still coming Sunday. I had 3 lined up this morning back home and hopefully they came. 

When I woke up at 6 this morning and went downstairs I could not believe what I say. 4 inches of snow on the ground and it was still snowing. The pastor picked me up for Sunday school at 9:30 and I was told there was a snow advisory out for this section of Indiana. A little lady at church said to me that she was praying for a blizzard so I would have to stay through the rest of the week. I sure hope not! They like me when I blow in, blowup, and then blow out of town. If I stayed too long they would not like me! Ha!


This is a great soul winning church and it is a miracle church. They are running around 400 after 15 years and I am thrilled for them about their future. I believe they will impact this city for the cause of Christ. The music was straight down the line and soul stirring. The spirit reminds me of the LONGVIEW BAPTIST TEMPLE. The Pastor and his dear wife have been battling health issues but they have still provided great leadership for these precious people of God!

This morning at the THREE RIVERS BAPTIST CHURCH I taught my lesson on "FORGIVENESS" in the adult Sunday school class  in the auditorium. Several came to me in between Sunday school and church and said it was exactly what they needed. GOD IS GOOD! I then preached my sermon "WHY DO I STILL HAVE MY BURDENS?" At the end God gave us 15 saved, 11 professions, 1 addition, and 3 baptisms. God was all over the invitation today! GOTTA LOVE SERVING THE LORD!
