Jesus First, Others Second, Yourself Last

God gave me a big surprise last Sunday evening. I looked over the audience and I  noticed a young lady in her thirties sitting  toward the back if the building. I walked up to  her and she said hello Keith. I don’t know if  you have ever been in that situation before but I  was a little embarrassed. I did not know her but  she knew me. She introduced herself to me and  then l could see a little girl who rode the Joy Bus twenty years ago.

This truly brought a smile to my face and filled  my heart full of joy.  Many seeds have been planted throughout the  life of the Joy Bus Ministry and we will  continue to plant and God will reap the  harvest.

I want to thank the family at Woodsfield for the  great support and efforts made to keep the  Bible School on wheels rolling for the Lord.  It’s moments like Mrs. Smith who reminds me that sometime it takes a seed time to grow. All  I remember is a little girl dangling her legs off  the Joy Bus seat ‘and now a beautiful young  women worshiping and praising God with the  family at Woodsfield.

We as God's soldiers need to be patient and  persistent as we travel the highways and  country lanes planting the word of God into  the hearts of many children

The family at Woodsfield truly cares about the  souls of adults and children and that’s why we  have this local evangelist ministry called the  Joy Bus Ministry. Thank you  for your  prayers, giving and talents in seeking and  saving the lost.

I wait eagerly for moments like this. Even  though I want instant results, sometimes we  wait. I love it when God surprises me with  great moments like this.  

Let us continue to fulfill the great commission  and go into all the world and that includes  Monroe County.
