Shields Valley Bible Church

Just last month, I got a call from a pastor that I knew years ago asking me when I was going to be back in his area.  It just so happened that we were going to be going right past him on our way to Salt Lake City, Utah.  I contacted him by e-mail to let him know of some open dates in August.  It worked out for us to go to Clyde Park, Montana for Sunday August 26, 2012.  He also asked me if I could help him at their church booth for Old Settlers days on Saturday, August 25.  We told him that we would be happy to come and have a part in their efforts to reach Clyde Park with the gospel in Old Settlers’ Days. 

During Old Settlers’ Days, we handed out free water and desserts at the church booth and in the parade.  Later in the day, Rawley helped me tell the story of David and Goliath behind the church table.  Old Settlers’ Day also held a talent show and they allowed me to use Randy to tell the story of Gideon at the local public school.  I have never been in a talent show before, nor have I ever been able to preach in a public school.  Please pray that God’s word will not return void and that through these efforts the people of Clyde Park and the visitors will begin a search to know God and come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. 

On Sunday, we put the whole church together for a family Sunday school lesson with Rawley.  He did a great job acting out the part of Jonah as he was swallowed by the great fish.  Everyone enjoyed the object lessons with a surprise ending.  One of the ladies even asked me to do one of the object lessons again, so those who were not there in the morning could see it.  In the morning I preached on Nicodemus.  Five raised their hand asking for prayer that they might have the opportunity to share the gospel with a friend.  Then in the evening service, I presented our ministry with more ventriloquism and a gospel message.  Please pray that this church might take us on for support in the near future.
