It’s amazing some of the testimonies we hear and the work that God is doing through Project Ezra!
Take some time to look through these video’s, pictures and testimonies from our recent First John on July 4th. Sorry it's a bit late, but it's been a busy month. If I didn’t include something you posted, don’t feel bad. I simply couldn’t post every testimony, which is a GREAT problem to have! Keep sharing your testimonies. I guarantee there are an encouragement to someone.
Our Canadian brother Tim Rector led off a couple days early. He says:
"It is Canada Day today, July 1st. So, while working delivering pizzas
tonight, between deliveries, I decided to try to stop and read as much
of 1 John as I could on the main street in New Hamburg. There were large
crowds of people all gathering for a fireworks display just around the
corner, so there were many people walking by my normal reading spot. I
began reading around 9 p.m. and it was still light at that time. If my
phone would have rang I would have had to stop reading to answer and go deliver a pizza. But God allowed me to read all of 1 John, and as a bonus as it started to get dark, a street light right above me lit my Bible perfectly, and many people heard God's word!"
Robert S Gray from New Hampshire says:
"Read @ Hampton Beach, NH. Repeated 1 Jn 5:11,12 a number of times once I finished the book. People responded & was able to witness to a man, his son, and a teen who recently tried to commit suicide. She wanted to know if me being there was a sign from God. Let's pray for her."
Bridget Golob shared that:
"We had TONS of people out at the lake where we were. I read Chapters 1 John 1-2, Toby read 3-4, and Mark read 5 and ended with an open air sermon that included the Law! MANY people heard the Word of God, the Law and the Gospel! After that, we had many conversations with so many people, (mostly teens), and gave out a few hundred Tracts! I was beginning to get hoarse! PRAISE GOD for a day well done for His glory! I'm praying that every seed sown today grows and matures into faith and repentance in our Savior!"

And finally, I have the privilege of sharing the gospel in Morgan Hill CA, along with other members of the Norcal Seedsowers. Nancy Murphy, an Ambassador's Academy graduate and one of the founders of our team, described the holiday like this in our newsletter:
"Saturday night, July 3rd a group of us attended the Downtown Morgan Hill Street Dance. There were crowds of people and we handed out hundreds of gospel tracts and talked to many folks. Dan brought his 'Are You Ready' cross which immediately drew curious teenagers asking, "Ready for what?" This led to lots of discussion about eternity and what Jesus did so we could go to heaven. Dan also read from the bible and preached in the open air. One man stayed and listened the entire time and wanted to talk afterwards. It was clear that God was working in his heart.....The following day we gathered at the same place for the annual 4th of July Parade. It was so easy to hand out tracts to people along the parade route. We ran out of them just as the parade was ending. Another fruitful 4th of July! We pray that those who received tracts and heard the gospel will turn from their sin and trust in Jesus Christ. "There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven given among men, by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12"
If you would like a chance to introduce your Christian brothers and sisters to Project Ezra, this could be a good opportunity to show them what we do. Also, please consider posting this on your social networking pages or re-post to your own blog to get the word out. I'll be sending this week's reading out tomorrow, and I can't wait to hear how God is changing lives in your town through the public reading of his word.
For the praise of His glory!
