St Croix Outreach
The tall man hovered above me cussing me out. His accent was so thick that it took a minute to figure out what he was shouting in my face. But I was finally able to discern, “I kill you.”
I calmly braced myself to do a judo maneuver on this homeless man named Countryman. Then I looked him in the eyes and said, “Can I pray for you?”
He pulled away shouting and cussing, “You stay away from me! I kill you!”
He looked like he was reaching for his knife but I calmly stood my ground and said, “I will seriously pray for you right now if you want.”
He continued cussing-me-out, while stepping away from me. Then another homeless man, who was currently receiving his donation of clothing was just finishing, so I let Countryman go ahead. I walked over to stand next to the other homeless men waiting in line. They seemed quite happy to let Countryman cut in line.
Feeding the Homeless
When Countryman had received his donation he went outside. Jason, the YWAM leader of St. Croix said, “Dude, you need to relax man.” Countryman then pulled his knife out and grunted, “I kill you.”
A local tall man named BamBam stood up with his arms spread protectively wide. He gently pushed both men apart and said, “Watch out Countryman or Jason will get you.” The other homeless men laughed at that.
Countryman walked to the end of the sidewalk shouting vulgarities while waving his knife around, then he said, “I kill you all,” and left.
Well, that was last week. Other than that, the ministry at the homeless shelter was fun. I especially enjoyed making friends with this man.
One of my friends at the shelter
As you probably know we ran a mini Discipleship School called DTC (Discipleship Training Course.) Which meant that each time I taught, I had to cram a week worth of lectures into a 5-6 hour slot. Meanwhile, my brother David was running the same course in Virginia where he is an assistant pastor at Shepherd Gate Church. They even invited me up to Virginia to teach on Spiritual Warfare.
Then, last week, David’s DTC team and our DTC team met up and joined forces in the Caribbean.
Both teams combined
We had a fantastic outreach. We played games with children.
This pool was a fast sled
We performed skits and gave testimonies.
I got to be the crazy "Joy Stealer" in a skit.
Most of them forgave me for being
the naughty "Joy Stealer." (Except Kayla)
We machette’d back some jungle. We played on the beach. I caught some wild animals (1 Iguanna, 2 Bats, etc...)
I am Batman
We did street evangelism where we had lots of prayer requests and one person accepted Jesus.
Praying for the Deputy Chief of Police
We prayed for the Chief of Police, the Deputy Chief of Police and other police. It was an intense and exciting week. My team definitely wished they could have stayed longer. I guess we’ll have to go back one of these days.
My first novel
I am finally ready to release the digital version of the first book of The Naga Trilogy titled: Rescue. Very soon I will also put up a link to order this book as Print On Demand for the hard copy version. If you purchase the ebook before May 30 then the price will only be $4.95. My hope is that if enough people pre-order my book, then, on the day it is released, my book will jump in the charts and get my work noticed. This would definitely encourage me to finish the editing of the rest of the series. Just use the Coupon Code: VV46Q for the discount.
