We thank Jesus our Lord for the saints in Connecticut. They have been faithfully fighting for the lives of our preborn brothers and sisters at the gates of hell in Connecticut for well over twenty years. Over a thousand children have been saved. Many more hundreds have given their hearts to Christ. And many of these have become fast friends of a ministry that allowed the theology of heaven to become biography in the streets. Simple little Christians serving an Awesome God! ~ Flip
Hi to all my brothers and sisters in Christ! I hope you are all doing well!
I am sending this email/letter out to invite you to be a part of a mission’s trip with Operation Save America. My family; Ed, Asia, Josiah and Noah and I have an opportunity to go on this mission trip. We are inviting you to be part in this outreach through prayer and or giving financially. This trip’s purpose is to preach the gospel to as many people as God makes possible, to educate the public about abortion, to speak for the babies who are scheduled to die, and to help their moms choose life for their babies. The leaders of this trip along with local churches will give ongoing help to those who responded to the gospel and those who chose life for their babies after our trip is over.
The kids and I were privileged and blessed to go on this trip last year. We want to thank you so much for those of you who supported our trip last year to Florida. I have so many testimonies I could share with you but for the sake of time I will just share the shortest version possible. Though I would love to give anyone interested the long version at another time. This trip was a week long and we out every day for the entire week. We were able through God’s help to pass out over a 600 pieces of gospel and pro-life literature in one day at the Florida State University, and had many short and long conversations with people about both of these subjects. We pray that God would do amazing things with all that information that went out to these people. One day I was presenting the gospel to this sweet girl who was about 18, on her bicycle. She was very close to wanting receive Jesus as her Lord and Savior but she just wanted to talk to her boyfriend about it first, which I did not realize was coming to meet her on his bike and had stopped to talk with another team member who was presenting the gospel to him at the same time. We went over to see what was happening and found out that this was a young man who was homeschooled in a Christian home who had got far away from his relationship with the Lord. He ended up rededicating his life to the Lord!! His girl friend who I was talking to gave her life to the Lord and we all prayed and cried. What a day that was!!!! They ended up coming to church each night with us for most of the week. The boy’s mom ended up coming too, and she was so thankful that we had talked to her wayward son that day!!!! They even came out to the University with us to pass out information!! Praise God for what he can do with our willingness to give to others what he gave to us!!!
This will be Ed’s first year going. We are so blessed to have Dad leading our family this year in this effort. Many of the families bring their children with them. These are beautiful families serving God together. The fellowship that the children have with the adults and each other is amazing. This is why I so wanted them to be a part of this trip. Also, I know that they will grow in there faith and God can use them to reach others for Christ. I know that this is very last minute but through a series of circumstances that God allowed, it had to be this way.
So if God speaks to your heart to help our family to reach many people with the Gospel, educate them about abortion and to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves, we would appreciate and be extremely thankful for your prayers and or financial support. We know you will receive a blessing for helping us do this work of the Lord; to seek and save the lost and to rescue those being lead away to slaughter.
The trip is a week long (July 21-27) and will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina this year.
Last year it was held in Orlando Florida. There are opportunities to go out every day, all day. Participants get to pick which activities to take part in. There is also some down time to take a break and do some swimming and fellowship with the other believers and there are some seminars and church every night. This church time is a great time of rejoicing about all God has done during the day! We sing praises to God and give testimonies about what God had done during the day. It is also a great way of inviting the people we ministered to during the day.
I have never done anything else that caused me to grow in Christ as much as this trip has done in the previous years.
If you feel lead to give financially, the money will go to help with our travel, food, lodging and the purchase of literature. Our family has saved through the year about ½ of what we will need. If for some reason we raise more than enough to go on this trip, we will use the money we did receive for our outreach ministry here in Connecticut. We will be out sharing the gospel here on a regular basis throughout the year and speaking for unborn children! So the money will be used to further the gospel of Christ either way.
I want to praise God for all he will do in this effort to obey Mark 16:15 and Proverbs 24:11 Again thank you in advance and God bless you!
Your Sister in Christ,
Thank you again for your interest in helping to support our mission!
