Wow! The journey to encourage the brethren and go into the community to demonstrate and share “ JESUS” has begun!! I hope to go to the 50 States sharing the gospel of JESUS Christ and encourage the brethren.
In preparation to leave my home state of Virginia I was met with many challenges some of which may have in the past been considered as a confirmation that it was not GOD’S will for me to go. Except for the fact that GOD spoke to me by way of, ”HIS HOLY SPIRIT” eight weeks ago last Saturday. HE said, “prepare to go to the 50 States with One True Story; JESUS.”
Again the challenge’s where many ranging from small to major. I would like to make mention a few of many people that have helped me along the way by prayer, encouragement and sacrificial giving of there time, talents and resources:
Wilber Banton has been a life long role model of a loving father.
Judy Banton my step mother of more than 32 years has been a blessing to me and many others.
Edith Banton my mother set a firm and narrow course for me that has and continues to serve me well.
Richard Banton my brother has proved to be as loyal to me as our daddy has been to us both.
Colonial Heights Baptist Church of Virginia; all the staff from the parking attendants to Pastor Randy Hahn have so well served in demonstration the Love of JESUS!
All the members of the local body of Christ from my youth till this day that have helped me to grow on the narrow way!
Rick owner of Vital Signs of Chester, Virginia. Rick put my visions into practical applications by way of the Graphics on my, ” JESUS Truck” as Rick coined it, the Graphics on the cross and the cards that I hope to give to tens of thousands of people along the way of this journey.
Lee Goodwin my brother in Christ, while looking at the just completed truck graphics said to me, “David I see a cross on the back of your truck”. About three weeks later I said to Lee, “come I have something that I want you to see”. He saw the cross mounted in the back of my truck and tears began to flow. Because of Lee’s boldness to speak there is the One of a kind cross that has so taken many already with GOD only knows how many more to come!!!
Frank and Linda Gruden of Chester, Virginia who opened there home to me and came at my call to help whatever the need was.
These are but a few!
