(UPDATES)

Lee is getting the tractor trailer today…  his company, Rainmaker Sales out of Shawnee, will furnish as many tractor trailers as we can fill up… up to 50. That’s all they have!

We are coordinating and will be taking the relief supplies directly to pastors and churches in the Houston which are directly in the storm path…

These include pastor Rob Purdy at SeaBrook Baptist Church… more to come

Supplies needed include those mentioned above, as well as baby Diapers, baby wipes, baby formula, toilet paper, first aid supplies, hand sanitizer, mops, quilts, blankets, trash bags, paper towels, and Bibles. If you want to donate cash, we will give forward it to the pastors in the area to buy WalMart cards to be handed out… hopefully this will limit misuse of funds.

We are meeting tonight to setup a schedule of when volunteers will be at the church to accept the donations.

A Beautiful God Saturated Sunday at Blackburn Chapel

Pastor Larry SparksWe baptized 3 more today and there are 5 awaiting baptism. We will push close to 50 baptism this Association year.

The church is full and worshipers are overflowing. Prayer altar has knee prints and tears embedded in the carpet. A lingering aura of love seems to hang in a drape like curtain long after the people leave. Bible study classes are growing and new ones must start.

When the church is in sync with Gods Spirit all ministries click as if they were organizationally mapped out. They were but by the Lord, not us.

Tonight’s worship time with testimony and prayer is a witness of the Lords control.

Thank You Lord Jesus.

After three funerals and wedding and the rehearsal, this week, my body is tired but at peace.

What an awesome God we serve.

The Changed Life

Pastor Larry Sparks“I once was lost but now I am found, was BLIND but now I SEE.”

The prospect of worry was a constant at one time in my life. I discreetly had anxiety over everything, and though not spoken, it was there. Then Jesus came into my life and took my worries away.

I was negative, critical, judgmental and prejudice, which fit my lower nature real well. But when I yielded my life to Jesus, I saw people as objects of Gods love and the light overcame the darkness. He really changed my look and outlook.

Down deep I was selfish, prideful and scheming to get what I wanted in life. Until, that encounter with the Son of God Jesus Christ and then “I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore. Very deeply stained from sin, sinking to rise no more. Then the Master of the sea heard my despairing cry; from the waters lifted me, now safe am I!”

The changed life is more than agreeing to a a set of words or praying a written prayer. Being born again is not a religious cliche that gives a false security of escaping hell and going to heaven. It is the CHANGED LIFE that happens when the HOLY ONE enters your spirit and you are never the same. Conversion means change.

Repentance must occur as sin is confessed and forsaken. Turning to the Lord Jesus by faith as the Savior and Lord of your life is essential to enter heaven and experience forgiveness. The changed life is, “Living for Jesus, a life that is true, striving to please Him in all that I do…” there is a real message in some of these old hymns that describe our changed life, IF….it has been changed.


Get out of bed, turn off the TV and get yourself to church to worship and to learn about Him you profess!
