The people are most important in the kingdom of God. "Without God, we cannot; but without us, God will not."
The most important thing in your life is that you receive Christ as your Savior and Lord. Savior in that, He is the only one that can deliver you from the guilt of sin. Lord in that, you allow him to be in charge of your life. Let Him determine how you will live, what you will say, how you will act and what you think about life. If you ask Him, He will come into your life. You can pray this simple prayer:
Lord, I know I need to be forgiven of my sins. I ask you to forgive me and to come into my heart. Deliver me from the bondage of sin, the devil, and the world and give me new life in in you. I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty of all my sins. Today I turn away from sin and receive Jesus the Christ as my Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord.
If you prayed that prayer, please contact us or some church near you that believes in the whole bible. May God bless you and I hope we hear from you soon.

Well the Czech Conference is officially done. These last two days we say much activity and moving of the Holy Ghost. Last night I ministered on God's Army and the people were fired up. Although most of them have never served in the military, there is definitely a militancy here. After the morning sessions yesterday we went to the Czech version of Walmart called Globus. After that we went and saw to authentic Czech castles. Check out the photos in the album. This afternoon, we went to Pastor Pavel's house for lunch. They showed us great kindness and there was great fellowship with all of Oscar's pastors!!! Tonight, I sang two songs before the preaching. Pastor Oscar preached on knowing God. Afterwards, Pastor Bland said a few words and we prayed for Oscar and Helena. I just want to saw that I am so proud to be in the ministry with such a great couple like Oscar and Helena. Over the past week I have gotten to see them in all types of situations and they are truly great servants of the Lord. They are pretty funny too!!! Pastor Oscar did not plant any church tonight but I believe they may have one or more planted before their next conference. They have quite a few men who want to go and several who are ready. Pastor Bland shared a word with one of the men and the power of God came over him in the office and he just broke down crying. His heart was so tender. After service we took a lot of pictures that you will see and then we went to McDonald's!!! This was Kim (Oscar's daughter) first time there and it was fun to watch how she acted. Overall, this has been a great week. Tomorrow, off to Slovakia!!! Spisska Sunday morning and Poprad Sunday night!!!! Looking forward to a great time,
Until Next time,
We have been having a great time these last two days. Day 4 was the first day of sessions. There is truly a heart within the people to see God do something great. There was good attendance at each session and the messages were great. The same is true for day 5 as well. The gypsy people have considered me gypsy because of the number of kids. Everytime I talk about how many they get all excited. last night I ministered on marrage and Pastor Oscar asked us to pray for the whole church. There was a great outpouring. Today after the morning session we went to Pastor Ruda's home. I managed to break on of his wife's decorations and Pastor Bland managed to break a camera so I guess we can say those "clumsy American :) " The hospitality was wonderful and the Chicken Schnitzel was very good too. We went back to the hotel, I took a walk around town and we got ready for service tonight. I saw a baby that stopped breathing during praise and all of a sudden she started breathing again. The devil knew that Pastor Blands message on witchcraft would bring deliverance to the people. Afterwards there was dinner and now we are back at the hotel. I will post a few more pictures. We are in full conference schedule. Better get my rest.
Until next time,
Today was a good day. I was up this morning and started with a time of prayer and reading. Afterwards, I had breakfast with Pastor Bland. You can see the photo of breakfast in the photo album. Afterwards we had a nice 45 minutes walk and talk with Pastor Bland. After this Pastor Oscar picked us up and we went to do a little shopping. Things are much more expensive than in 1993!!! I was able to pick up a few things and then we went to lunch at a nice little Czech restaurant that looked like a hole in the wall but was very nice. Afterward, we went back to the hotel and I was able to get a little studying done and a short nap before service tonight. The evening service started at 5:00 pm and it was another packed house. The devil was busy right away as the microphone kept cutting out. As soon as the praise and worship was done, the cutting out went away. Pastor Bland ministered on dominon and there were about 10 who came to the altar for salvation. He then prayed for the men. The Gypsy people are an excited people and it is amazing to see their faith and their desire for more of God. Afterwards, we had dinner at a place called Poseidon. I had a very good Czech dinner of pork, bread dumplings, and saurkraut. Another great day in Ostrava. I am looking forward to tomorrow.

Hello Everybody!!!! I slept like a rock last night, and today was a great day!!! The morning started at 6:00 am for me. I was able to pray and read before having to rush off. I had a 9:00 am breakfast with Pastor Bland. We were the only ones there and they had a great Espresso, ham slices, cheese, cucumber, tomatoes and fresh bread, followed by some kind of streusel. After that Pastor Bland and I went for a walk in a prak behind the hotel. I got back to the hotel just in time for my ride to Hranice Czech Republic which is about 40 miles away. When I got to the church there was a man out front smoking so I knew it was going to be a good day :) . When I got in the church, there was a group of about 45 people who greeted me and made me feel so welcome. There was a tremendous liberty to preach in that place. We had one person saved at this location and she was so happy. There was a man who could not hear out of his right ear that we prayed for and I whispered in his ear and he could hear me!!! There was a lady who could not bend over and I pulled the chair out and watched her legs grow out. She could the bend over completely. I prayed for many people in that place and especially for marriages. I have a testimony from one of the ladies on video that I will try to post. We left there and went back over to Pastor Oscar's house for some of Helena's good cooking and then we went to Pastor Oscar's church in Ostrava. That placed was packed out and there was such a great expectancy. I ministered from Galatians 6 and encouraged the people to continue in good works and God would reward their labors. There were about 10 people who responded for salvation. What a great blessing. Then I called for people who had been contending for something for a long time that had not seen the results. I was going to do a general prayer, but when about 15 people came to the altar I decided to pray for each one. Before I knoew it there was about 200 people in the altars. Those people were so precious and I saw mothers and fathers contending, wives for their husbands, children touched by the power of God; it was amazing. I prayed for each of them and they were so precious and grateful. After a good day of preaching I went with Pastor and his family to a Pizzaria. The pizza was the biggest I have ever seen in my life and it was 13 dollars. Check out the photos album for some great pictures of the day. Tomorrow should be a morning of breakfast and shopping and the first service of conference at 5:00 pm tomorrow night!!!
