FRUIT FROM OUR MINISTRY
Over the last two years the Lord has been opening up opportunities for us to use jazz music to minister in lands far beyond Western Europe. In places where the free proclamation of the gospel is often not tolerated, we have seen the beauty and truth of the gospel begin to make inroads into people’s hearts. We know of two individuals in East Asia who have placed faith in Christ, and several others who are interested and being drawn to our Savior.
Todd was encouraged to see a man at our church in Germany start to get more excited about using his gifts to serve God. This man hosted a Next Exit concert at his home, in an effort to reach his neighbors. He now uses his musical gifts in the church and continues to look for opportunities to reach others for Christ. A man with whom I and two co-workers were able to share at one of our concerts is now meeting regularly with a brother from our church. It was so good to see a church member get actively involved in the follow-up.
Since 2010, the Precious ministry has had contact with people from over 30 nations. Several have contacted the Precious team in an attempt to get out of the sex industry. We are assisting them in this process, while encouraging them to pursue a relationship with God (we know of two that have successfully left this profession).
During the fall of 2014 we began helping with teaching English to Germans. Our plan is to help again this spring. Pray for relationships to develop outside of class so we have a chance to share our lives with each other and our purpose for living.
