Operation Cause at OU- My Personal Open Air Messages

The Outreach at The University of Oklahoma was a wonderful chance to stand upon a box and proclaim the Good news of Jesus Christ to the student body. My thanks goes out to Tony Miano who did his part to put this together. It takes alot to pull this off and he did it very well. God bless him for his willingness to serve.

Below are my first and second open air sessions. In the background, you can hear our most promising heckler, Alex. He hates God. Hates him. Pray for him.

Being a Nice Guy won't get you to Heaven

Devotion Time 11/03/10

This was my quick devotion time in my Awana class last night with my 5th/6th graders at church. The kids were very receptive, as they always are, the clear Biblical gospel was given and Gods name was lifted up. My prayer is that you'll be encouraged.
