The last two months have brought great opportunity. The following are a few praises and prayer requests:
Joe Gibbs Event – A group of men joined together to bring 1000 guys from the community to hear former Washington Redskin Coach and NASCAR Owner, Joe Gibbs. He spoke on Getting Men off the Sidelines and into the Game. 329 men marked on their cards that they invited Christ into their hearts. 329! Check out GamePlanforLife.com
Speaking Opportunities– Legislative Retreat, Victory Bible Church, Leadership St. Tammany, Wedding, Baby Dedication, Christian Legal Society. My goal is to spend more and more time speaking to community organizations about the need for spiritual renewal and revitalization in our community and country.
Discipleship – A number of men have recently come to faith and I am following up. It was fantastic to see one of the men authentically give his testimony before I spoke to a lawyers group in New Orleans. He was a great object lesson in the power of the gospel.
Preaching Opportunities– It was a huge privilege to be a speaker at Forcey Bible Church’s Missions Conference in Silver Spring, MD. Many responded to the invitation. Donna spoke at a women’s luncheon after church.
“We preach Christ and Christ crucified.” 1 Cor. 1 & 2
National Prayer Breakfast – Once again, I helped co-lead the team from Louisiana to the National Prayer Breakfast. Dr. Ben Carson seems to have launched a national movement after his keynote address. The trip included key appointments with political leaders in Washington, DC. Here Donna is pictured with Gabby Douglas, the 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist.
Disaster Response – I like to do little projects to keep my hands in the TouchGlobal Disaster Response Ministry. It was fantastic to meet with leaders from New York City who are figuring out how to follow-up in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Urban Impact – I enjoy serving as Chairman of the Board at Urban Impact in Central City, New Orleans. The ministry has purchased St. Monica’s Church and school and has renovated the property. It is thrilling to see kids have a place to play, learn and worship.
1. Pray for full recovery for Donna after her recent knee surgery.
2. Pray for my ministry starting in mid-April through mid-June in Baton Rouge among Legislators during the 2013 Legislative Session.
3. Pray for open doors, changed hearts, wisdom and boldness.
4. Pray for revival, revitalization and renewal in the United States.
Betting the Farm on God,
My Cup Runneth Over
