Re: Ministry Update from Evangelist David and Joy Corn
God has given us a great few months! In May, we held a Magic and Morality rally in Milton, FL. A 15-year-old girl rode her bike a few miles to the rally. She watched the program, heard the gospel, got on her bike, and started riding home. She said she felt God talking to her so much that she turned around, rode her bike back to the church, and sat down in the auditorium! Joy got to talk to her and lead her to Christ! We praise God for dramatically moving in her heart!
We also got the privilege to preach at Hand Avenue Baptist in Bay Minette, AL. On the Saturday after the meeting, Pastor Leo Mejia wanted us to help him start a Bible club. We knocked on doors and invited young people to meet us at the park at noon. At 12:10 no one was there. We kept praying, and at 12:15 they slowly started to gather. At least 15 people came! I did illusions and preached the gospel. At least five people received Christ right there in the park! We praise God for leading Pastor Mejia and for giving us a harvest of souls! At the beginning of June, we traveled with Brother Young up to the small town of Onaway, MI. We held a rally there on Friday night before the revival service and over thirty visitors came! That night an entire family of four got saved!
Joy and I ran a last minute Vacation Bible School in Hagerstown, MD where we had over 300 kids per night! God blessed with at least 60 kids that were individually lead to Christ! The next week we held a VBS and teen rally at Cedar Crest Independent Baptist in Mount Union, PA which is where Joy’s dad pastors. The young people really worked hard inviting friends, participating well, and responding tenderly to the preaching! We had 28 saved that week!
We were also privileged to go to New Life Baptist in Odenville, AL. That church is like family to us! As we helped in VBS, we worked with the kids some and preached to the teens. We had 10 teens saved including an older teen named William. William is a foreign exchange student from China. His dad has no religious beliefs and his grandparents are Buddhist. William sat through three nights of preaching, and when I gave the salvation invitation the third night, he did not respond, but acknowledged that he had some questions. As I talked to him afterwards, he asked me many questions. He said, “I have one more question. If I was going to get saved, how would I do it?” Well, I could definitely answer that one. After I finished explaining, he told me he wanted to do it! I was so excited and surprised! As he prayed to accept Jesus Christ as his Savior, I began to cry as I was realizing what a miracle God did in this young man from another country and culture believing and calling upon Christ to save him. Praise the Lord!
We also have some major ministry news! After much prayer, godly council and clear direction from the Lord, Joy and I feel God leading us to continue full-time evangelism on our own! We are very grateful for our time with the Young's and the kindness they have shown to us! We will continue to travel with the Young’s through this fall, and we plan to begin on our own in January! We just finished our new website: www.EvangelistDavidCorn.com where our ministry information and current itinerary can be found. Please pray with us that God will open doors of ministry opportunity, give us meetings, and give us much fruit!
Tonight we finish up at First Baptist in Ranson, WV where God has really been moving! We have had 20 saved here this week! Tomorrow we head to Kendall Park Baptist in Kendall Park, NJ. Then we will make our way to Alabama and in late August, we preach a revival and Magic and Morality rally in Kodiak, Alaska! God has been so good to us! And He is greatly using you in our lives. You have been such a blessing to us! We thank you for the generous support! Your giving helps us serve God in evangelism. Thank you!
