Preaching in Honiara


Deliverance right out of the enemy’s grip!

Wow, front-line evangelism at its best – Thank you Jesus!
Today, as Doreen and I were out with the Cross, I was preaching to a crowd of maybe 15-20 men. We noticed a younger crowd in their 20’s standing back with disturbed and questioning looks on their faces. After I preached and led some of the men in a prayer to receive Christ, one of the young men approached us with an angry confused look. I again shared the Gospel and how much God loved him and then asked if he’d like to pray and ask Jesus into his heart! He hesitantly said yes. After I led him in prayer, his furrowed brow lifted immediately and his eyes lit up and a smile came on his face. We watched his face transform before our very eyes! He had shared how thIs past week had been so hard for him and how much he was hurting inside and that he wanted to do evil. He was  crying in his heart for answers and help. He knew this was an answer to his desperate cry. We asked if he had a bible and if not would he like one? We said that we could get one for him and his smile got bigger! He then asked if he could walk with us so the next mile and a half, on our way to the bookstore, I gave him a crash course of the Old Testament and the purpose of the law, the New Testament and the purpose of Jesus’ coming as told in the Gospels and the book of Acts and the books that follow and the purpose of the coming of the Holy Spirit. He hung on every word until we reached the bookstore where I bought him his very own bible. Please pray for Joe –
Keep praying, its making a difference.
