So Many Good Things!

Mike-P1020072-200Dear Friends,

There are so many good things going on that it’s hard to know where to begin. I am part of a men’s group called Influencers that meets on Tuesday night at 6:00pm on the Bakersfield Christian High School campus. It’s a citywide group that allows me to build some lasting relationships with other men. The best part is, I don’t have to do any teaching or leading. I can just enjoy being there. This is my second year with Influencers. If you are interested in being a part give me a call or just show up.

For the last eight weeks I’ve been teaching each Wednesday night at Christ Cathedral from my book Learning To Do What Jesus Did. Pastor Max wanted his people equipped to pray for those in need of healing. It’s been exciting to watch them respond positively to this training and to see God help them discover their spiritual gifts and how to use them. I have my last session this coming Wednesday the 25th and these trained teams will then be available to pray with you each Wednesday beginning at 7:00pm at Christ’s Cathedral here in Bakersfield.

Beginning this Thursday, September 26th I will be teaching a class here at Summit Bible College. We are using the Learning To Do What Jesus Did book and equipping them to go out to pray for the sick in their churches, homes and out in the marketplace. Give Summit Bible College a call at 661-328-1151 if you would like to be a part of this.

If you are interested in this training in Spanish I will be conducting a two-day training event October 11-12 at the Fairfax Assembly of God Church here in Bakersfield. We will be using the Spanish version of Learning To Do What Jesus Did. I will of course be working with a translator as my Spanish is very limited. They are located at 1408 Marion Dr. and their phone number is 661-366-6783.
