Board Meeting at Hastings, originally uploaded by Shirley Buxton.
We don’t have a church office at Christ Alive, so we often use Hastings Book Store for meetings. On Tuesday at 1:00 we met for further planning of our Tent Crusade that is scheduled for March 14-16. An evangelism committee who has been involved in many such events met with Jerry and me, as did Mike. Cheryl and Skip have been attending our church for several weeks and are eager to help with this project and were also there.
How else can we reach the cityhow else will we attract them to this meeting? was the question on the table, when the coordinator lifted his eyes and spoke to the young women you see pictured here. “We need your opinions, girls. Give us a hand, here, please.”Although appearing startled at first, they were agreeable, we swung chairs around and they joined our planning session. The young man you see is 14 and was sitting across the room when we first went in. I had gone over, given him a card and invited him to church. Now, we also called on him, and he joined us at the table.

After we had talked with the girls for a while, had gathered ideas from them, invited them to church, and they had gone back to their spots, Sydney (in the white jacket…) came back over and said, “I have one more idea.” We talked about it, decided it was a very good, unique suggestion. Today at 2:00 I’m meeting with Sydney at Hastings to implement her plan. The young boy stayed with us throughout the meeting, and I fully expect he will be at church on Sunday.

Other wonderful developments:

* A highly visible piece of land on Highway 95 has been made available for the tent crusade at no cost.

* A board room at one of the banks in town has been opened for our use at any time we need it.

* A gentleman whose profession is creating “voice-over” commercials has agreed to produce spots for our crusade at no cost. He will be producing one for every type of radio station in this area: country, rock & roll, and Christian.

Jesus called it the abundant life. Joel prophesied it, Peter first saw it happen, and now it continues here in Lake Havasu: The Holy Ghost is being poured out in a phenomenal way.

“But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day, But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel:

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; and on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:” Acts 2:14-18

  1. Wow! This post has made my heart glad! To God be the glory for the work in Lake Havasu! I’m rejoicing with you today!

    Yes, Tena. Pray for me as I meet with Sydney in a couple of hours. I’m claiming those young people as the nucleus for our youth group!

  2. Mom says: “Praise God. I’m believing with you!”

    Tom says: Look at the seeds that were planted through this meeting. We’ll be praying for fruition and that the tent meeting will go well. It’s been years since seeing Bro. Howard, but I would love to see him again. Maybe he’ll be in Fairfield again one day. Good post! GOD BLESS!

    Yes, we’re believing that these seeds will produce an abundant harvest. Thank you for your interest.

  3. This is great! It is the beginning of the non stop revival God says we can have. It is “Harvest Time”.
    Blessings to you and all there.”

    We’re claiming it!

  4. This is so exciting! I will be praying for God’s Spirit to be poured out like it was in Acts on you tent revival.

    Thank you, Von De Leigh. We certainly do need your prayers, for as we delve deeper into all the permits and the expected minutia of such an event, we’re faced with lots of work. God is doing miracles for us, though, sending us help and we are seeing our new ones take giant leaps into the work of God.

    We’ve spent much time discussing the music and what we need to attract people…and what our budget allows us. Anyone reading here with lots of apostolic enthusiasm and dynamic musical ability who has the desire to pitch in and help with this Lake Havasu project post HERE IN VERY LARGE LETTERS! 🙂 Let us know what time your plane will arrive in Las Vegas, and we’ll pick you up there. 🙂

    Love you…thanks for your interest…and for listening to my babble…if you’re still reading.

  5. Shirley, I hope you don’t take this wrong, but this blog has been degraded into not much more than pentecostal advertising. Where are the spiritual entries that bring me to my knees?

  6. Shirley, This is like another chapter being added on to the Book of Acts in the Bible! Remember it says the disciples went from house to house breaking bread or sharing the good news of the gospel. This is awesome! Thanks for sharing what God is doing in your area.

  7. I love it!!! Breaking out of the box. . . . .God is smiling with his approval on all that you are doing!! Exciting!!! GO GOD GO!!!! Thanks for sharing
