I never thought of myself as an evangelist, but I am finding more and more that all I want to do is reach the lost and tell them about JESUS! I am blessed beyond measure to work with a team of worshipers that are totally committed to spreading the Good News. Today we did outreach in Palestine, Texas.
First, I want to thank Pastor Gaither E Bailey at First Presbyterian Church of Palestine, TX for allowing us at Church on the Avenue to use their property for the event. I want to thank Pastor (just call him Brother) Martin Bellone for sharing the vision God gave him for the ministry and honoring me with the opportunity to co-labor beside him, Josh Hazelwood and Dodi Cheree Hazelwood, and their family for cooking and feeding so many, and the worship team, Isaiah 61 One. Pictured left to right: Clyde Sparks (worship leader for Victory Fellowship in Nacogdoches) on bass, myself, my bride, Rachel Powell singing vocals (she and I attend Covenant Churches of East Texas in Rusk), Trisha Renee (worshiper at Branded by Christ Cowboy Church, Rusk – Texas), behind her, Jeremy Bishop on drums (worshiper at Faith Bridge Community Church in Douglas) and our worship arts coordinator and chief flagger, Susie Ellis holding my precious Josie. One team member that couldn’t be with us, Lane Kennedy (lead guitar, attends The River a Church for Whosoever formerly Alto Community Fellowship Church) is also an invaluable member of the team!
