Southern and Southwestern States Open-Air Preaching Tour, spring 2014
This spring I have ongoing personal business in Louisiana (school.) However rather then fly there and back, I have prayerfully decided to drive this trip instead. That will enable me to go on an open-air preaching tour throughout the many states. The church withing America must not forget her own Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria.
My goal is to plow the fields of Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and then back to California. This evangelism will include heralding the Gospel into public places.
Lord willing I pray to be “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord; Make straight in the desert a highway for our God” (Isaiah 40:3). “For this is he [John the Baptist] who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah when he said, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord; make his paths straight’” (Matthew 3:3).
However to make this happen, I will need additional funding for this missions trip. Bear in mind the length and geographical distance of my trip will be based off how much of a budget I have. Hence, possibly spending one week in each state. Those expenses will include: gas, lodging, food, gospel tracts, bibles, etc.
If you would like to financially support this mission, your tax deductible contribution could make this happen. You can donate online with any credit or debit card, through our safe and secure online donations page; or you can send a check to IPOC – PO Box 8668, Redlands, CA 92375. You will receive a receipt for your own tax records.
“You are either called to go down into the well, or hold the rope for those who go down. Either way, there will be scars on your hands.” HeartCry Missionary Society
“Do you want to go to heaven alone? I fear you will never go there. Have you no wish for others to be saved? Then you are not saved yourself. Be sure of that.” Charles Spurgeon
“If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.” ~ Charles Spurgeon

The public proclamation of the Gospel is foreign to most believers. Therefore to know more about this, please read my article “Attention church: Open-Air preaching is Biblical.”
