We were at some rodeos we regularly attend to minister and hold Cowboy Church in May and June such as Mineral Wells, TX; Jacksonville, TX; Wimberly, TX; Tejas Rodeo which is held weekly in Bulverde, TX. We continue to find favor with Jim Gay of Rafter G Rodeo, Pete Carr of Carr Pro Rodeos, Lester and Holly Meier of Lester Meier Rodeos,Stace Smith of Smith Pro Rodeos, Yancey James and Trey Moore of Tejas Rodeo, and others who welcome us to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ at their rodeos and other events.
The Church Services are well attended as we continue to make disciples as Jesus told us to. Matthew 28:18 “And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
We recently taught on “The Presence of God”, “Do Not Grieve the Holy Spirit”, “The Ministry of Angels in our Lives Today”, and other topics. We spend a lot of time one on one with different people at each rodeo. My wife, Cherlyn, is well received and has a wonderful way of loving the people we meet and minister to. Here is where we can answer personal questions, give counsel from the Word of God, speak healing and see miracles from Jesus. The Holy Spirit moves in a special way to these hungry individuals who seek to know more about God, and who make Jesus the Lord of their lives. Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
My children Caleb and Brandon are continuing in their bull riding careers and giving God the glory as they go. These two rode calves when they were about 7-10 years old, then they took a fifteen year break at a young age. Now at 26 and 28 they are riding bulls weekly and following their childhood dreams. I say they are “late bloomers “ at this age, but they are in good physical condition and have a good mind for riding. Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself also in the LORD and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Your dreams and plans may be a long time coming but keep open to what doors Jesus may open, even if it seems the time is past and it just will not happen.
We now have a new system for Giving into this ministry if you would like to be a Cowboy Partner and Keep us On The Trail for Jesus and for souls. Check out the information in this Issue of Christian Cowboys and Friends Magazine. See our website for details at www.Christiancowboy.org
We continue On The Trail for Jesus and hope you do to. You have purpose. Fulfill your purpose for God. And do not grow weary in doing good. Galatians 6:9 “Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” I Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.”
We thank all of our Cowboy Partners who give financially to keep this ministry going. On the Trail after all these 38 years, and we still see God move in the affairs of men and women.
