FLYING TO NASHVILLE TO PREACH IN ALABAMA

I will be flying to Nashville, TN., and then drive to Athens, AL., to preach for my friend Dr. Juaken Dumas who pastors the MOUNT PISGAH BAPTIST CHURCH.  I will be teaching Sunday school and preaching both services on Sunday.  There will also be a Monday night service at 7 pm.  If you are in the area I hope you will be able to stop by and see us.  My book table will be set up for the week end with some of my new books being available.

I just went reviewed by Soul Winner's New Testament for  the month of June.  The LORD allowed my to see 31 trust Christ with 10 of those making professions of faith and 6 of those following the LORD in baptism.  GOTTA LOVE SOUL WINNING!

18th NATIONAL TEEN CONVENTION

Thursday Morning
My son, Dr. Bob Gray II, 18 years ago founded the NATIONAL TEEN CONVENTION.  Throughout the years the TEEN CONVENTION has grown and this year was no exception.  This was never designed to be entertainment week.  There is more solid old time preaching and teaching than any other youth conference in America.  Evangelist Allen Domelle, Pastor Danny Ortiz, Dr. Bob II, and myself preached.  Solid old time religion!




LBT Teen Choir

We do not use the latest songs or movie themes to entertain.  Most youth conference speakers are spiritual comedians.  These youngsters loved the old time preaching. God sent delegates from 16 states and hundreds surrendered to full time service as well as hundreds surrendered to be 100% behind their man of God with both financial and spiritual support. GOTTA LOVE THE OLD TIME RELIGION!

103 TRUSTED CHRIST AND 31 WERE BAPTIZED

Emanuel

Sunday Morning
Dr. Ken Pledger
I had the honor of preaching for my friend Dr. Ken Pledger who pastors the CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH of Middleburg, FL., this past Sunday and Monday. This was Pastor Pledger's 26th anniversary celebration.

God gave us a total of 103 souls saved on Sunday with 31 of those following the LORD in baptism by the end of the day.  It was a tremendous day.  The people worked extra hard to make this a  day to remember for Dr. and Mrs. Pledger.  Dr. Jack Hyles use to say that any pastor who stays for 20 or more years in the same pastorate was certainly among God's Elite!  This is one of God's best!

I was able to lead several folks to Christ and one of those was Emanuel.  Dr. Russell Anderson joined me for the meeting and on our way to eat supper I struck up a conversation with one of the workers at the motel as he was leaving for the day.  We talked for a little bit and soon I was able to give him the Gospel.  He was so kind to listen and eventually bowed his head and prayed to trust Jesus Christ for payment of all of his sins. It was great!

Dr. Pledger, Dr. Anderson, and myself went to a Cracker Barrel to eat supper that Saturday night.  Dr. Anderson started joking with the waiter who was 19 or 20.  He told the young man that he carried his priest with him where ever he went so he could get his sins forgiven the minute he sinned.  I was wearing a black pull over and Dr. Anderson pointed to me and said here is my priest.  He told the young man, "By the way we are having a two for one sale on forgiveness of sins and you need to take advantage of this offer tonight!"   The waiter took our order and went on his way.  

He returned with our food and before he walked away he looked at me and said, "Please don't forget to remind me of that offer to get my sins forgiven."  I said, "Ok!"  He left and we ate.  He came back and said it again.  We thought he was going along with the joking.  He returned to clear off the table and asked me again to not forget.  I told him to clear the table and then I would show him how to have all of his sins forgiven.  

In a few minutes he came back and I showed him Scriptures on how to have all of his sins whether past, present, or future completely paid for.  He bowed his head and trusted Christ to pay for his sins.  This young man was dead serious with something that started out as joking around.  WOW! GOTTA LOVE SOUL WINNING!

GREAT WEEK END IN OKLAHOMA

Vanessa
I had the honor of preaching for my friend Pastor Charley O'Daniel who pastors the MARANATHA BAPTIST CHURCH of Bethany, OK, just outside of Oklahoma City.  Evangelist Allen Domelle joined me on Sunday and God gave us 8 saved, 3 professions, and 1 baptism.  

We will be here through Tuesday night.  The service begins at 7 pm. If you are in the area please come by and visit with us. Evangelist Domelle will be preaching first tonight and I will be preaching second. I am looking forward to seeing you!

One of the folks who trusted Christ was a young lady named Vanessa.  I preached my sermon, "YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!" and pointed out how a religious ruler had to be born again just like any one else.  This young lady was so sweet. She looked at me and said, "I am that religious person what do I do?"  WOW! She then trusted Christ. AMEN!

Monday soul winning resulted in 11 trusting Christ and hopefully many more will trust Christ before the week is out. SOMEBODY SAY AMEN!

I trust you understand that the whole purpose of this BLOG is in encourage you to be a personal soul winner. If you think I am bragging on myself you are simply saying that is what you would do. You have no idea why I do what I do! Believe it or not! I actually love talking to people about being saved from Hell through Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection.  That is the GOSPEL according to God.

Someone emailed me a comment by some "idiot" that was mocking my leading of a impoverished black family to Christ.  When I lead people to Christ I do my best to have my picture taken with them.  I want to remember them, pray for them, and go back and follow up on them. GIve the info to the pastor of the church where I am preaching.  

According to this email this "idiot" put a smart aleck remark underneath my picture with this family..."The next generation of fundamentalism" mocking this black family.  God pity your soul! Where have we lost our love for the souls of ALL men.  

You'll send a missionary across the seas to win black people and mock us while we win them in America.  You wouldn't walk across the street to witness to a black man let alone bring him to church with you!  This is not Christ like!  Why don't you go on with your worship teams with the gals with their mini-skirts and leave us alone!  You non-soul winners will soon die out because you can't reproduce. GOTTA LOVE PERSONAL SOUL WINNING!
