Persecution Will Come 1/17/2015

Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Beware of men, for they will deliver you over to courts and flog you in their synagogues, and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles. When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour. For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. Brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death, and you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next, for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes. (Matthew 10:16-23)

Glendale Outreach  


Glendale is always a fun outreach. We all look forward to the several people who earnestly encourage us to continue to proclaim God's glorious gospel truth and the many who eagerly receive bibles and tracts. Tonight's team included Sharon, Debbie, Dr. Jack, Jeremy, Dean S., Dean C., Sai, Razmik, Richard and Steve.

For the first time we tried covering both sides of the street. Praise the Lord we were not chased away, like the last time we tried this several years ago.

The one-to-one witnessing began right away, and continued through the evening.

In a renewed effort to document the CBC Evangelism Team outreach, Razmik helped with the video camera. Lord willing, we will be screening a video at the upcoming CBC Missions Conference.

Pictured also is a woman who was drawn to stay and listen to several of the preachers proclaiming the gospel. She thanked and encouraged each one. "We need this in our city!" she said.

Our greatest danger in Glendale appears to be the lack of serious opposition. It's simply too much fun! Next time we hope to remedy this, somewhat at least, by introducing the Heckler mic to the people of Glendale. Lord willing we will get some good hecklers that way.

The Morning Shift - NoHo Station


NoHo station is unusually busy these days as the construction of the tunnel progresses. This morning the proclamation of the gospel was nearly drowned out at times by the grinding of the heavy equipment and the droning of the sheriff's helicopter parked over the 170 freeway nearby.

But the Gospel prevailed. Many bibles and tracts were received.

We have been blessed to welcome a brother named Marvin who joined with us to distribute tracts. Marvin is recognizable to all who frequent the station as the vendor who has long been a friend to the ministry on Thursday nights.

Please stand with us on Wednesday mornings at 6:00 AM at the North Hollywood Metro Station on Lankershim Blvd. It's a great opportunity to share the truth with the thousands of commuters who pass through this area. Please watch for text announcements on Tuesday evenings. Please always RSVP if you plan to join us on Wednesday mornings.

Abortuary Duty


This Pregnancy Counseling Center offers free ultrasound and a host of other free services to pregnant women as an option to murdering their child. It is located directly across the street from the Mission Hills abortuary. Many of the victories that we have observed have been facilitated by the presence of this valuable resource. Beyond simply pleading with couples to save their baby's life, we can encourage them to cross the street to talk to the counselors there who can show them the many services available for the asking. Brother Don estimates that in the few years he has been "on duty" he has seen, or has personal knowlege of, as many as 60 such victories.

You can join the effort at the Mission Hills clinic, 10200 Sepulveda Blvd., 91345, every Saturday and Tuesday morning from 8 to 10 am. No experience necessary.

  1. I am continually encouraged by your posts and they keep me wanting to witness. I'm jealous that you have such a great turn out of faithful evangelists. Dean- has now moved onto "evangelist super stardom" with his moving video produced by Way of the Master.

    Miss you guys,
