Spreading the love of Jesus...the Cowboy Way!

PRAISE REPORT: We headed out on this ministry road trip 4 weeks ago. Booked every Sunday even for the next 2 Sundays. But for some strange reason we could not get booked this Sunday. We reserved a space at a KOA near my son's home in Claremore, OK no idea of what the facilities might be like. We are less than 100 feet from a horse race track. (God knew that being around horses brings us peace). This is such a beautiful place and so quite. Still I found myself asking God why were we unable to get booked at a cowboy church near by? I knew there was a reason. Went into the office to pay for a couple extra nights and when the lady saw my cowboy hat she mentioned that in their community building they were holding .....wait for it...... LOL Cowboy Church. Ain't that just like God. We got to meet the pastor and his wife and have an open invitation next time to minister at their church. Well Glory.
In November of 2015 I started running an advertisement that read:We want to trade for a class A motor home or Bus. Must be road ready. This unit will be used in our ministry. Give me a call or text message. If interested text or email with pictures and details.A few calls over the next 11 months but nothing looked very promising at all.On Oct 28th, 2016 we had our last singing at The Farm in Lithia, Florida and an Auction the following day to sell everything we could not take with us to KY. (Down sizing from 3,000 sq. ft to about half that). A lot instead of acreage. We were trusting God for a great sale (Enough to buy a used road ready motor home). When 30 plus people showed up for the auction our hearts sank. I have to admit, I wondered was God through with us in ministry? Were we not listening to what He was saying? We just knew He wanted us on the road at least part of the time. I recall saying Ok, God if a tent is what you have in mind "So be it". (After all, that's about all that was raised in the Auction). Just when we were about to give up. My attention was drawn to an advertisement on craigslist by my brother Dan. I called and God spoke to the owners hearts that night (11-4-2016) 7 days after the Auction (COMPLETION). On the 7th day this couple who we had never met called and spoke these words over the phone "We have a deal". 2 days later they drove the motor home to us , about a 2 hour drive. We all four had a wonderful time of fellowship and one week later the papers were all signed and we were blessed with a motor home far beyond our expectations. One that will serve us well, iteven has a brand new set of tires ($2500 value) and a M.H. Cover to keep it dry until we come back in March to begin our April Road Trip. Denise and I will be visiting many churches in 11 different States from Fl, GA, MS, AL, LA,TX, OK, MO, AR, TN & KY. We will be singing and sharing testimony of Gods healing powers, miracles, and His saving grace. We go where ever doors open and depend on Him alone to cover all cost. If you feel a pulling at your heart strings to have us at your church give us a call or private message me on Facebook. We do not care how many attend your church, if God says go we will be there, He Provides! We look forward to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with you.
Praising and Thanking God for for His blessings on this Thanksgiving day. We also thank God for all our ICCAN friends and family!!

We got a lot of rain & rough weather lately here in south La. but I praise God that we were not flooded and suffered no damage. We are praying for many who have suffered great losses.
A rousing Praise to God for allowing us to have such a wonderful blessed Houston ICCAN event! So great to have so many ICCAN members there to participate and share their God given talents and gifts to promote Christ to everyone there. Thanks goes to all the ICCAN directors/staff for all their work plus a special thanks to Gulf Meadows Church pastor, staff and members for allowing us to be there. Their members were so helpful in all our outside activities and needs. Blessings!....JP
Praise God for His grace in allowing me to come back into the ministry after over 8yrs of severe illness. Hurt my back and given heavy doses of steroids which made me gain 185lbs. I developed serious health issues and put on lots of meds. Then had a upper respiratory infection that turned into pneumonia. The antibiotics given made me well but then caused me to become paralyzed from throat to toes. I couldn't walk, sing, play piano/guitar or function at all. I spent 6 months in the hospital and then home-bound 4yrs recuperating plus an additional 3.5yrs dieting to lose the weight. As a minister (former cowboy church pastor) and music artist, I'm now looking forward to what God has in a work for me to do as I start up a music ministry. Still working on vocals and guitar but with God's help progress will be made daily.
Awesome News Mike! Keep up the Good Work!!!
Praise God!! This past Sunday we had an old fashioned water baptizing at Good News Fellowship/Tickfaw,La.. We got the ole horse trough out and filled er up. We had 12 folks signed up to be baptized but before we got through 15 folks went under. I was so excited and I know God was pleased, cause you mean business when you get baptized. God is pleased with obedience. To God be the Glory!!!
Praise God!! This Sunday we will be celebrating our 13th year church anniversary at Good News Fellowship Church/Tickfaw, LA. We have witnessed many salvation's and miracles over the years. God is doing great things at Good News Fellowship and we give Him all the glory.
Great music and time of worship last night. We also began our Life Book program and everybodyhas chosen to be involved! I am excited about what God is doing at Cowboy Church !
I want to post this praise report because God is faithful to those who are faithful to him. God just can't wait to pour out his blessings but he watches us to see if we are being obedient to his word.
My testimony is that on many occasions in my life I have been faced with occasions where I didn't know how I was even going to pay my bills. But I decided long ago to be obendient and tithe. One time I needed $50 to pay a bill and I didnt have it. That day after much prayer when I came home there in the mail was a refund check from a company ... I didnt even know they owed money to me. Another instance is when my company had promised holiday bonsus to all employess then decided later they could not do it. I had been given a small bonus that I had negotiated for accomplishing certain goals that year. I was upset about my employess not getting their holiday bonus.. so I took mine and split is up evenly and gave each one a bonus.
What do you think happened.... yes when I got home there in my mail box was a check for that exact amount from another utility co. One time in was un-employed for 18 months but God was faithful.. somehow we always had just enough to pay the essentials... God said he would provide for all our needs... here are a few scriptures that will get you thinking Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, ‘How have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.Malachi 3:7-9 .. Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”Luke 6:37-39 Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?Matthew 6:25-27 So today take time to thank God for his blessings and provision and consider what God wants us to do with them all
I have some Rousing News! This past week end was the Branson Gospel Singer/Songwriter Assoc. yearly Awards Banquet and Praise Gathering. I received the BGSSA, New Horizons Male Vocalist-2013. I also am a Top 5 Finalist-Instrumentalist, and a Top 5 Finalist Songwriter, and Sandy received a Helping Hands Award for her hard work too! What a Blessing and surprise to me!!! I give God all the praise and glory. If not for His Grace I would not even be alive! He provides. I just show up and do what I do.
Cowboy Church at Banning Stagecoach Days Banning California
50 attended, 5 received Christ, 10 cowboy bibles and 1 CD given away
Praise God for his faithfulness
Praise the Lord for helping us to set up Deo Manna Zoe Inc ,meaning God, Bread of Life through AEGA to provide evangelistic and educational services to PUST, in North Korea. Much of the support needed for our first semester of teaching has come in although we still need $4600 in support soon and $20,000 for the second semester. We give praise for the opportunity to bring truth and grace through Jesus Christ to North Korea along with practical teaching that will help to feed and provide products for peaceful trade. We ask for your prayers for this purpose. Also, please pray for the North Koreans to forgive America for their sense of bitterness and abandonment that America made a covenant with them to save them from Communism and abandoned the North part of the country to be invaded by Communism. Americans then bombed out 90% of Pyongyang in 1952 according to historical reports. America has helped every other country that they bombed. Let us remember Jesus' words to love our enemies, that America may also be blessed. We are thankful for prayers to help this struggling nation, whose capital Pyongyang once was known as the Jerusalem of Asia. Pray that the once numerous churches in this city would be rebuilt and that favor would be given to Christianity.
