From crosswalkers to gang bangers, Jesus can use us all!

So, we were wondering how to sum up the last few days and realized how much has been happening!  We thought maybe a summary of all the people we’ve met might be interesting.  So, here is my attempt!

Tuesday:  Met Bob, Cori, and Timothy (their son) at the Burns RV Park.  Bob has been walking a huge wooden cross all around the States as a way to attract people to tell them about Jesus.  He takes it to large events (like NASCAR and Harley Davidson rallies) and has no shame in his testimony.  Him and his wife are genuine, radical, Jesus freaks!  We met them as we were getting ready to leave and started talking, by the end we were praying together and hugging!  They have been traveling in an RV for 15 years, had their son on the road (he is 11 yrs old) and they are on their way over to Newport, OR, following Hwy 20.  It was so awesome to meet these fellow believers and followers of Jesus.  In our brief meeting, they poured out much wisdom and encouragement!  www.crosswalker.com

Wednesday: We finally make it to Dan and Freda Bingamans house in Caldwell, ID!  They and their daughter and son-in-law, Tish and Shawn, have been so gracious to welcome us into their homes!  This has been a warm and safe place to start our journey.  Dan works at the Boise Rescue Mission and has introduced us to the team over there.

Today, Friday, June 20: We met LOTS of wonderful people at City Lights women’s center (part of the Boise Rescue Mission network) as we helped out with lunch, restocked their freezer and ate with them. 

We also met Peter and Jeri Vasquez, who started Second Chance Grace ministries.  This ministry reaches youth and young adults involved in hard lives, gangs, poverty, etc.  They both have amazing testimonies of how Jesus saved them from the pits of drugs, gangs, violence and alcoholism.  They have been used mightily in the Kingdom of God and we can’t wait to keep in touch with them.  Sincere and very bold followers of Jesus who are ready to fight for the lives of these young people.  www.2ndchancegrace.org

We have met so many more people than this!  This is just a summary of some of the people we have met who are allowing the Lord to use their lives, finances, homes, testimonies, and families.  All of them have acknowledged the effects of Jesus and His Spirit in their lives, and this is why they keep the fire and passion in their hearts and minds.
