Guyana Update as of February 2nd

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:18-20

The 40-day Revival in Guyana has a been a huge success and continues to gain momentum. In the past eight days, 80 souls have been saved, and 24 people have been baptized. New Testament Baptist Church in Guyana had more baptisms during the first week of the revival than they had last year for the entire 40 days! Attendance numbers are continually increasing aside from a slight setback during a storm. At last count, they had over 200 people in the service.

People are getting saved at the revival services as well as during door-to-door soul winning. One of the most recent soul-winning highlights was three Hindu family members in one house all getting saved. Brother Garrett and his soul-winning partner went back to visit that family the next day and got a fourth family member saved. Praise the Lord!

Charlie Jeffrey from Faithful Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, and the Gallaghers from Verity Baptist Church in Vancouver, Washington, recently arrived to help with the soul winning, and in one day, the team had 18 people saved out door-to-door.

I try to mirror Brother Garrett Kirchway’s videos on my channel when I have time, but you can visit Brother Garrett’s Youtube Channel: Fwbc Botswana for up to the minute updates on the 40-day Revival. Please continue to pray for those laboring in Guyana.

“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” Daniel 11:32

Here is a recent sermon on the Post Tribulation Rapture.

This is terrific! So this is what *actual* revival looks like? When we have "revival" preachers come to our church, it's always some weepy preacher telling us sad stories about Christians that have died and revival breaking out at their funerals and scores of folks getting saved. And these revival meetings always take place Sun-Wed, and come Saturday (scheduled soulwinning day) guess who shows up to help do their part? BZZZZT No one!

We had a missions conference a couple of weeks ago and the preacher for it, JD Weido, has his car trunk full of shoes of dead Missionaries and Christians that he takes to churches that he preaches at. "And these were the shoes she was wearing to volleyball practice when she was hit by that drunk the funeral a hundred people got saved..." What? The whole thing smacks of Catholic relic worship. Am I alone in thinking that is a little bizarre?

Most importantly, it is warming to my heart to hear of so many being receptive and getting saved from confrontational soul winning. It makes me think of these vacationaries not getting anything done, that just invite folks and pass out literature and run away and are more concerned with planting Bible colleges. I am praying for their continued success down there.

And that food looks GOOD.

Hi pastor.

This is off topic but Matthew 3 on your website (recorded by Dominique Davis) is incomplete. The audio cuts off before the end of the chapter.

Really enjoy the recordings. Very well done!

This is way more edifying than the "Solve Church Problems" blog. Keep up the good work reaching the lost!
