You've got to read this!

This dear young man, Trey, is from yesterdays first segment on The Way of the Master Radio. He was really impacted by the Gospel. "My eyes have been opened." He said. "I had never seen it that way before." I encouraged him to get right with the Lord right there in his car. Trey really gripped my heart. He is a precious young man. I have been doing fishing segments for close to 2 years now and Trey was a rare encounter--for sure! Please pray that Trey will come to a saving knowledge of Christ--if he has not already :-)

Along the same lines, you have got to read this email that came into The Way of the Master Radio last night at about 11:30 pm. I was in tears by the time I was done reading this. This sort of email is not that common. The subject was titled "Son and Father assured of salvation thanks to WOMR"

"After being a backslidden Christian for about 2 years, I was sinking. After listening to your show for the last few days, I decided to confess my sins to God, receive the salvation from Jesus and repent of my sinful ways. I realized that I was an adulterer, a thief, a liar, a covetous blasphemer. That was this morning around 9am Pacific. I am now saved and fully converted.
I invited my 13-year-old son to listen to your show with me this evening (by podcast), and, after hearing Ray witness to Trey in Texas, my son and I talked about the issues raised. I asked him if I could ask him the same questions that Ray asked Trey, and he said yes. The result: my son has accepted his condition and the fact that he was bound to hell. I then shared with him how he can escape that plight, just as ray had stated. My son took time to privately pray in his bedroom to apologize for his sins, repent from his past and secure his salvation.
We are now both on the high road together.
God bless you and keep up the good work.
2 more for Jesus!

When I read this, I was simply overcome with tears of gratitude to the Lord. And as I write this right now, I wan't to give all glory to God for His amazing works. He is so awesome and worthy of all of our adoration and praise! Words can not express His worth!

If you would like to listen to the full segment on The Way of the Master Radio. It starts about 40 minutes into the hour January 31, 2008 - Hour 1

Praise God! I am constantly amazed at how God uses one event to impact the lives of others. Who knows how many other people heard this witness encounter, were convicted of their sin, and as a result repented o their sins and fled to the cross of Christ.

Praise God!

That is amazing! I'm here at work with tears in my eyes over His awesome Grace and Power. Thank you for what you do and I'm praying for you as well.

God bless!

Hi Trish! I'm a WOTM listener. My hubby and I listen to it together everynight before bed (we record it off satelite radio). It's amazing how God is using this ministry. Praise God!

Hi, I'm the "Jason" mentioned and just wanted to encourage all of you. I'm a Canadian (eh?).

When I was first saved a few years ago, I did not experience conversion. I had studied and attended church and heard literally hundreds of sermons, but NEVER HEARD THE GOSPEL. I did no assessment of my condition, no assessment of what Jesus had done. Now, not only am I clear about my salvation, I am being called more urgently than ever to start a ministry of evangelism, a ministry that I have wanted to start since my "squishy" salvation, but unable to see a way. Well, now God has made a way.

I am charged by my King to pick up the Sword, put on the Helmet, Breastplate, Shoes, etc.

The fields are white. Let's all reach out. I am SO pumped. I'm almost 44 and feel like a sprite teenager. My son is joyful and just aglow...

Thanks for posting my story Trish. Thank the Lord for WOMTR.

Blessings to all,

Thank you Joseph! I am always overwhelmed with gratitude to Christ, that He would even allow me to be used. I love preaching the Gospel with the lost there is really nothing else I would rather do. Thanks for the encouragement Joseph--it means a lot!
