Dear Faithful Supporters,
The last couple of months have been quite busy with new and exciting opportunities to share the Gospel. The first part of September started our school schedule once again. There are many new teachers in the classrooms this year, which has given me the chance to talk with a few of them about what I do and why. This is important because it lets them know how I can help, and often gives me the chance to find out where they stand when it comes to their eternity!
October started the fair or “carnival” season, which brought a new and exciting ministry to our family! Bro. Jerry Purtell called and asked if we would be interested in using his second “Creation Video Trailer”. This is an opportunity that we have anticipated the Lord would open up. In just two weeks, we were able to get all the details worked out to run the “Video Trailer” at the Tangipahoa Parish and the Livingston Parish fairgrounds. With the help of teenagers from churches in the area, we were able to see over 550 people get on the trailer, with 29 individuals accept Christ as their Savior! Our girls also got involved by passing out the tickets, and helping to work on the trailer as well. They had so much fun, that they can’t wait till we get to do it again!
A STUDENT’S PRAYER REQUEST
After the Livingston Parish Fair had finished, I was scheduled to be back in school once again. Little did I know the Lord had a sweet surprise waiting that would show us the value of our Fair Ministry in combination with our School Ministry. On the first day of school, just before I started my second class, a fifth-grade student handed me a letter. Later that day I had a chance to read it, and it was such a blessing. I would like to share that letter with you as well!
Dear Mr. Tater Man, Hi! I’m Beth (or Elizabeth). I can tell just by listening to you that first day you came to our school, that you are an amazing Christian man. You have become a really great role model for me. I want to be just like you when I grow up. (But still a girl) I’m hoping you can help me with something. On Thursday at the fair, I went with my friend Sara. When we went on your really awesome trailer, I was inspired. Sara, doesn’t believe in Jesus, and like you said time is running out. I don’t want to see her in the flaming pits of Hell, I want her with me in the Kingdom of God. Please help me convince her that she needs Jesus in her heart. Thanks!
I ask you to pray with our family, that Beth’s friend ( Sara ) would soon come to accept Jesus Christ into her heart!
In His Service,
The Decker Family
