Jeremy couldn't take his eyes off this!

I made it back to Texas safely from a wonderful
weekend with the Ambassadors' Academy Team in California.
Here are the photos of the fishing segment from last
Thursday that I wanted to share with you.
Meet Jeremy from Hour 1 of The Way of the Master Radio.

Jeremy was open to the Gospel as he spoke with Todd Friel.

And we (Liz, Leon, and John) followed up with the good news
and gave him a bible afterwards because he didn't have one.
Jeremy couldn't take his eyes off the Word of God.

Immediately he clung to it and opened it to
search the book of Psalms and began searching the Word.
"I remember this one verse..." He explained.
"It's something about God making my hands ready for battle."
Jeremy "happened" to live near San Diego (where Leon lives)
so Leon suggested a solid church for him to attended.
Praise be to God! Please keep praying for Jeremy!

You can to May 29, 2008 - Hour 2 it starts about 20 minutes into the program.

It was a privilege to be a part of phone fishing with Trish, Leon, and Liz.

It was especially cool because there was a little me standing there- a little me before Christ.

Jeremy had a lot of mixed up views. He had grown up in a dysfunctional family, and a religious background that included Catholicism, Buddhism, a view of heaven as being a long line, and Hell as being on earth as simply a sort of purgatory, a place of punnishment until he was cleansed enough to be reincarnated. He believed God is an artist who creates beautiful worlds and then leaves to create again.

I spent about ten minutes with him, discovering his beliefs and background when Trish came over. I am very happy to hear now what Todd was discussing with him. He had a clarity after the phone conversation with Todd that blew me away. Trish gave me the privilege of doing the follow up conversation with him. He was definitely under the conviction of the law, and as we went through the law and the Gospel again, he definitely was beginning to change before our eyes. The law softened a hard conscience, and the Gospel was clearly the best news he had ever heard. He committed to study the New Testament we gave him. We marked several passages that he could consider, and pointed him to the special topics listed in the Gideon Bible.

Jeremy rolled away on his board, be faithful and pray for Him, that his conscience would drive him to the cross.
