"How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
We can no longe log all of our efforts. It is to tedious. Every Friday our outreach is still occuring and the Wednesday bible study and discipleship is happening as well. This summer I will also be in DC for 5 weeks laboring and ministering through open air preaching and evangelism. We will continue to update our current work, but it will be reserved for bigger events and special occasions. God Bless.
Inivted to give a word of exhortation at a church
May 14, 2016
I would like to thank Pastor Danny for inviting me to share about the success of the fair and to give a word of exhortation to his congregation concerning the need to evangelize and be filled with God in a fresh way for each day we are living.
Met with the local presidetn of a Men's ministry here in Tucson
May 09, 2016
God is creating some strategic opportunities and partnerships. A local Men’s ministry that is part of a nationwide organization is seeking to pursue greater outreach opportunities in Tucson. I and the president met to fellowship and discuss what God has been putting on our hearts. Hallelujah!
April 29, 2016
Great time tonight. Compared to the fair, tonight was incredibly easy. A few people came to Christ. One young man had such openness to the Gospel it was mind blowing. He literally came to Christ on the spot and could feel the Holy Spirit touching his heart. He invited Christ into his life to forgive him of his sins and make a choice to live for Him.
Downtown Outreach with Ignition
February 13, 2016
17 young adults from Igntion College and Young Adult group came downtown to share their faith. 14 of which was their first time doing something like this. It was a powerful time.
Downtown Tucson is a rough place to minister due to its new age environment and party atmosphere. However, everyone did a great job!

February 03, 2016
Today we went to Tucson Mall to minster. We were able to share Christ with many people. We split into teams in order to reach more people. It was a pretty powerful time. God can show up even in a store when His people begin to share the Gospel!
Teaching at Igntion Tucson on the Foundation of Evangelism
January 30, 2016
Today I was able to lead a teaching and presenation on the foundation of the Gospel. This teaching is in prepartion for the outreach that I will be leading as I partner with Calvary Chapel's young adult fellowship. It was a blessed time.
January 15, 2016
Awesome time ministering tonight. The Holy Spirit was powerfully present. We ran into a JW just like the Holy Spirit told me we would the night before. We also were able to minister to a young couple and they gave their lives to Christ. Thank you Jesus!
We have the encounter with the young couple and the girl on our Youtube channel. The link below will lead you to the young couple video
Evangelism at Park Place Mall
January 08, 2016
We didn't go to the Swap Meet tonight due to weather. However, we decided to go to the mall. We had the chance to minister to a lot of people. God was present and a lot of people heard the Gospel.
Evangelism at Tucson Mall
January 05, 2016
Powerful time at Tucson Mall. We ran into many people receptive to the Gospel. The Holy Spirit led us to a young father. We spent 30 minutes talking to him and challenging him to give his heart to Christ. Malls are perfect places to impact lives for Christ.
Evangelism at El Con Mall
December 28, 2015
God moved mightily today. I was feeling sick and had a sinus infection, but God's strength was present. We got to meet a good number of people. In our evangelism efforts we also met some believers throughout our time and we were able to encourage them.
The mission field is the world. Walmart, Target, Ross, JC Penny, etc... this is where Christ calls us to shine His light, Ministry is not just for inside the church our outside our country's borders.
Day After Christiams Homeless Outreach
December 26, 2015
Today we again partnered with Hope of Glory Ministries to do some Homeless Outreach downtown. I brought my friend Brandon along who has been having increased desire to minister to those in need. It was a powerful time. It was awesome to see Brandon step out of his comfort zone to minster and share with some of the homeless.
These are some photos from some downtown homeless ministry the day after Christmas.
In the 1st and second photo, you will see me, Brandon Williams, and a young man named Matthew. Several weeks ago I ran into Matthew witnessing at the Swap Meet. I actually got video of it I posted here
But long story short...
Weeks ago when I met him, he was so closed off to the Gospel that when I told him at the end of the video that Jesus Christ loved him more than he could imagine, he just walked away in the middle of me telling him.
When I saw him here, downtown, in the photos, the day after Christmas I initially had no idea what to expect. I really couldn't believe that I had run into him downtown. He actually helped us all pack up after the lunch we served the homeless. I went up to him and said "Hey I met you a few weeks ago. Remember me?" He did. He then proceeded to apologize for the way he responded when I shared the Gospel. I asked him if he had thought about anything I told with him. He said that he had and, in fact, had gone over it in his mind.
I was blown away by the change of his demeanor. I began trying to share with him about the sacrifice of Christ, our need for forgiveness, and the love of God towards us in Christ. He was so open to what I was sharing that he said "You know I think you might be onto something." It was powerful to see the change that occurred just from sowing a seed of the Gospel in his life weeks before.
It didn't end there. He didn't have a Bible so I got him a New Testament and shared with him how "that book has been changing lives for the better for 2000 years." He was so eager to read it he started flipping through it and scanning it. I then spent a few minutes reading from John 1 and John 3 with him.
Praise God for divine appointments. No matter how someone initially responds to being challenged with their need to repent of their sins and to embrace the love of Christ, God can begin to water the seed. This young man went from rejecting everything I was sharing with him to accepting a New Testament and beginning to read it. Praise God!!! Hallelujah!!!
Follow Ups with people we meet.
December 18, 2015
Several weeks ago, God put it on our team's heart to better engage in trying to follow up with the people we minister to. Often we give out our contact info. But lately, we have been trying to get contact info from people in order to get them plugged into a church and to also see if there is any way we can minister to them.
If you are reading this, please pray for us. Personal follow ups take a lot of time, so we need more volunteers and also we need good discernment to know the best ways to invest our time.
Evangelism and Outreach Night
December 04, 2015
Praise God. We were able to share Christ with a lot of people. The highlight of the night was sharing Christ with Michael and his family. Michael had just been laid off from work and saw our sign that said "Need Prayer" and he came over crying asking us to pray for him. I was also able to lead him to the Lord. He prayed to invite Jesus Christ into His life.
Thanks Jerry, Edozie, and AJ (not in video) for coming out and shining the light of the Gospel!!!!
Check out one of the most interesting people I have had to minister to out of the countless people I've talked to by clicking below
November 28, 2015
Today we partnered with Hope of Glory Ministries to do Homeless Outreach. It was a big blessing. This time I was able to talk with a lot more homeless people about the Gospel.
I had the chance to talk with a younger Jewish man. He was so closed off to the Gospel, yet it seemed like God was holding him from leaving as I was talking to him. After a while it came to a "rubber meets the road" kind of time in the discussion. As soon as I challenged him with the truth that outside of Jesus Christ the devil would be controlling his life, the conviction of the Holy Spirit pricked his heart and he just walked away.
I was also albe to talk with a young (24 yr old) homeless "protester" that professed himself to be a pagan. God was so present. As I ministered to him about the Gospel and the love of Christ, he listedned so intentlty. As I ministered to him, he asked some great questions about why God doesn't just right all the wrong. As we talked someone God started to lead me to talk about this young man's father. As I did, the Holy Spirit started giving me attribute after attribute of what God is not like as a loving Father. This young man said his father was every attribute I menitoned that was the exact opposite of who God is. As I pressed into the topic of the love of Christ and Jesus' death on the cross, I challenged the young man about the reality that God literraly was presenting a crossroads before him. He could choose Christ and the awesome plan of redemption God would want to work in his life or he could go his own way and choose to reject God's love. He walked away.
There were many others I could to share Christ with.
One in particular was a young Christian man that strugged with addiction to alcohol. I got to challenge him with the truth that Jesus would deliver him if he was ready. We exchanged numbers and I told him about teen challenge. He later texted me and thanked me. He said he felt like he had hope.
Evangleism and Outreach Night
November 20, 2015
Incredibly powerful night. Jerry, Michael, and Edozie came out and we shared the Gospel boldly.
There were a lot of great conversations we had with people. Tonight we ran into a lot of people that wanted follow-ups either texts or calls to be invited to church or futher discussion.
The highlights of the night: witnessing to mormons, the opportunity to pray for several Christian families, trying to convince a couple of Catholic guys that needed to really surrender to Christ (they don't us they hadn't), and ministering to John.
I got some of it on video watch by clicking below. Jerry spent a good hour after talking with him. Edozie and I were praying for them and that strongholds would be broken. About 30 min later John came over and had an entire different demenor. He began to ask us why we were convicted enough to do this. He began to ask us about the way God touched our lives. He wanted to know why Christ had to die for our sins. We are going to be praying that John opens up his heart to Christ.
Evangelism and Outreach

We went out to share Christ with people at the Tanque Verde Swap Meet. IT was a powerful night. We had the chance to lead someone to the Lord. AJ, Seriah, and Jerry ministered with me.
Tucson All Souls Procession
November 08, 2015
I and several others went downtwon to the All Souls procession parade. I had never attended before,. We got there about 3 hours earlier in order to evangelize and share with people. The parade itself is actually very demonic. Everyone dresses upo in black and warns skulls. Thousands of people particpate and then several thousand more line up on the streets to watch it.
October 31, 2015
A few week ago I was driving in my neighborhood and I felt the Holy Spirit lead me to the idea of doing evangelism on Halloween night. I went door to door, and instead of trick or treating, I handed out Gospel tracts and tried to see if people were willing to talk about Jesus with me. It was a very successful night.
I handed out over 200 Gospel tracts. Verbally shard the Gospel with around 50 to 60 people and canvassed the neighborhood with Gospel tracts and prayer
October 31, 2015
This morning and early afternoon I partnered with Hope of Glory homeless minisitries. We were downtown providing food, minor medical care, supplies, and preaching to the homelss. It was a blesssing.
I had the chance to share Christ with several people. One of them in particularly was this gentleman who is also named David.
He asked for prayer for healing. We prayed for him. I continued to talk to him and I asked him if he had ever made Jesus his lord and savior. He said he had when he was a child but that he didn't think he ever really understood what it meant. I proceeded to go over the Romans Road with him verse by verse explaining it.
Though he was very nice, I clarified to him that we need Jesus to cleanse us of our sin because our sin separates us from God even if we have good intentions. I asked him if he wanted to devote his life to Christ and be forgiven of his sins. He said he did. I was able to lead him in a prayer. Please pray for him that God continues to work on his heart and that he is pulled closer to the Lord.
October 30, 2015
I met Anthony witnessing at the Tanque Verde Swap meet. He gave his life to Christ 4 years ago. However, he had a beer and cigarette in his hand when he came up to me. We talked for a while and he hung out. Near the end of the night the Lord challenged me to confront him about alcohol and smoking. He admitted that he knew that he would have to be free from them in "the Lord's timing." I told Him that God's timing is always. God always wants to free us, right here in the present. He said "ok". Then today. We prayed for a few minutes. After praying, the Holy Spirit led him to dump out his beer. This is right after he did that.
Taque Verde Swap Meet Outreach
October 30, 2015
AJ, Seriah, and myself went to the Taque Verde Swapmeet tonight. The Swap Meet has around 300 vendors set up and thousands of people walk through it every weekend. We handed out Gospel tracts and when able shared the Gospel with people. We also ran into several Christians that wanted prayer. God moved mightily breaking strongholds, furthering the Gospel, and encouraging the believers that came by.
October 28, 2015
Tonight I and some friends went to hear a guest speaker at church. Afterwards, we went to In-N-Out. We talked and fellowshiped for a while. Eventually, some of the group left and me and a friend stayed and talked. I had some Million dollar bill Gospel tracts and was occassionaly handing them out as people walked by. It was about 11PM and two young men and a girl were leaving the restaurant. I felt compelled to go up to them. They readily accepted the tracts and asked for some more to give to friends. However, as we talked, they told me that they were not living for God and did not know if they had really ever given their lives to Christ. I began to share with them about the necessity of repenting of sin and coming to Christ. That He loves us and Has a plan for our lives. I also spoke with them about the reality of what happens when we try to stay in control. We actually give satan control and he desires to destroy us. Somehow what felt like 15min was an hour. My friend Cole (on the right in photo), whom I am discipling, also shared his testimony and warned them about the seriousness of hell.
I challenged them with this, "Tonight is the night that God wanted to intersect your lives to change your future. Are you willing to give all of your life, all control, to Jesus Christ? And not just do it because I am asking you to but because you actually want to?
Praise God they said yes. I was able to lead them in a prayer to invite Christ in, repent of sin, and to denouce satan and his temptations.
If you read this prayer for these two young men
Gospel Tracts Have Arrived
October 23, 2015
Gospel Tracts came in today. I also have a stamper with ministry info on it so that each one can direct people to the site and my number if they want to contact me.
2,000 with Ben Franklin
1000 in Espanol
The back reads
"HERE IS THE MILLION-DOLLAR QUESTION: Will you go to Heaven when you die? Here’s a quick test: Have you ever lied, stolen, or used God’s name in vain? Jesus said, “Whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” If you have done these things, God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart, and the Bible warns that one day God will punish you in a terrible place called Hell. But God is not willing that any should perish. Sinners broke God’s Law and Jesus paid their fine. This means that God can legally dismiss their case: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Then Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death. Today, repent and trust Jesus, and God will give you eternal life as a free gift. Then read the Bible daily and obey it. God will never fail you."
We are officially incorporated
October 21, 2015
Every ministry must incorporate in their state if they desire to be an actual institution. This is a major milestone. It is a necessary step towards non-profit status with the IRS. Praise God.
November 18, 2015
Recently God got me in touch with a group of young men that I have been able to bless through some discipleship. We have been meeting on a weekly basis. There are a couple other guys not in the photo. However, each time we meet, God does something awesome. This week we went over the Romans road to salvation so that they could be better equip to share their faith.

This is a young man named Dee. Tonight as I was leaving Albertsons he as outside of the store just sitting there. I felt compelled by the Holy Spirit to go talk to Him. He was very troubled due to a fight he just had with his girlfriend. I began to share with him about how much God loved him and wanted to reach into his life that very night in the midst of what he was experiencing as His darkest hour. I clarified to Him that we must repent of our sins because our sin seperates us from God. As we talked his heart opened up to the reality that he needed to repent of his sins and invite Jesus into life. I was able to explain the Gospel to him and he choose to invited Christ into his life. We then hung out for 45 min and I encouraged him to really press into Christ
