Re: Ministry Update from Evangelist David and Joy Corn
God has tremendously blessed our spring, and our summer is now in full swing! We started this spring by going on a missions trip to Trinity Baptist Church in North Caicos Island (in the Caribbean). On that island of 1500, we were privileged to give the gospel in all 3 public schools and a school on another island. At the family conference revival we had a high night of 110 people, most of whom were adults! We had 60 saved for the trip! We then did an M&M at Christ’s Baptist Church, a church plant in Austin, TX. We got into 2 public schools and 3 after school clubs. We had 106 visitors with over 20 saved! Next, we went to Calvary Baptist in New Braunfels, TX. The church worked very hard, and God gave us 200 visitors with 15 saved at the rally and 3 in the Christian school chapels! We were honored to serve with my childhood friends Pastor Danny and Lindsay Harris at Victory Baptist in Talihina, OK. We did 6 public school rallies and had 375+ visitors come to the rally with at least 25 individually counseled to be saved!
We made the trek to First Baptist in Pecatonica, IL where we did 3 public school rallies and had two shows back to back at the church. We had over 700 people there with at least 650 being visitors! I believe we had ~20 saved that week! We were so grateful to do a revival at New Life Baptist in Odenville, AL where we had 5 public school opportunities. We did a two-night evangelist rally with 400 visitors and at least 26 saved for the week! We were so grateful to serve at First Baptist of Land ‘O Lakes, FL where we did a Friday night and a Sunday night evangelist show. We had 200 visitors on Friday with 9 saved! With the Good News clubs, chapels, and shows I believe we had 20 saved for the week! We got to hold a revival with our old friends the Speichers at Faith Baptist in Interlachen, FL. We had at least 50 visitors at the rally night with 6 saved for the week!
We were so privileged to do an M&M at Teays Valley Baptist in Hurricane, WV. Pastor Jared Shumate worked very hard to get us into 3 public schools and 3 Christian school chapels. At the rally we had 96 first-time visitors with 41 saved! Counting all the week’s events, I believe we saw 68 saved! We were given tickets to fly to Anchorage, AK to see my brother and his family where I got to preach the gospel at his church for a youth event. I believe we had at least 5 saved there! Our next meeting was a revival at Fellowship Baptist in Baltimore, MD. That sweet church brought several visitors, and they were such a blessing to us! We had 6 saved that week! We traveled to be with our encouraging friends at Antrim Baptist in Byron, MI for a revival. We had 2 public school events several visitors at the rally and 3 saved! We ended the Spring with a youth rally at Lock Haven Baptist in Orlando, FL. We had 2 saved at the rally with several others saved during that week!
We started our summer with a VBS at our home church in Houston, and God allowed us to see 30 saved! We were so honored to just finish a junior camp at Southland Christian Camp in Ringgold, LA. We had around 20 saved! Brother Mike Herbster and his staff were so gracious to us! We are in Tulsa, OK visiting my grandmothers this weekend, and on Monday we start another junior camp at Amazing Grace Baptist Camp in Ottawa, KS. From there we head to Mansfield Baptist Temple for a VBS in OH; a VBS in Tyrone, PA; Venture of Faith Camp near Valdosta, GA; a VBS in Bay Minette, AL; Camp CoBeAc in Prudenville, MI; a VBS in Ranson, WV; and then the birth of our baby girl.
Carson has really progressed over the last month! He is becoming more aware of his surroundings, playing with toys a lot more, doing a lot of sit-ups, and eating consistently well. Joy is due in 7 weeks, and her nausea finally subsided when she was 26 weeks along. She is doing such a great job connecting with people and taking care of Carson (and me ?) We are desperately in need of your prayers this summer as we have sensed Satan trying to get us frustrated with little things. We are staying encouraged. God has blessed us so much, and we are hungry to watch God work even more! Thank you!
