Tuesday, June 7, 2016: Again, Caelin and I spent the day together; the Ford Escort needs wheel bearings, shocks, ball joints and brake pads. We pick those up and carried his car to the shop. He and I also visited James Morris at noon; I encouraged him to have another outreach. I had Caelin pray for James. It was a good day with him!
Sunday, June 5, 2016: This morning I attended a church service in Downsville where Chris Moon is the pastor. It seems that he desires to network with the pastors of Covenant Life Fellowship and other pastors and home groups in the area. I went there to support him. As I was leaving Chris stopped me and said that there was a young lady that wanted me to pray for her. I asked her what she needed; her prayer was for boldness. As I prayed for power of the Holy Spirit to rest on her; having her to raise her hands in worship the Lord, there was a light stammer from her lips. Then the Holy Spirit power fell on her and she fell to the floor. For this I thank God the Holy Spirit for leading me there today.
Monday, May 30, 2016: James Morris has been talking to me about his burden the community in which he lives. The Holy Spirit moved on James to solicit a group of people with the Holy Spirit and power to join him in reaching his community. This outreach was not to be put together by leaders of some large organization, but simply by young man full of the Holy Spirit that wanted to be used of God. That Saturday morning may, 28, 2016 we had people full of the Holy Spirit showed up at Harvest Food across from the paper mill. They prayed together; asking for the Holy Spirit's power and leadership as they went out.

Saturday February 27, 2021:
Dear Rev. Robert,
Greetings in the Mighty Name above all names Jesus Christ. I hope the Lord has kept you strong and safe. I’m in a mission field a bit far from home. The Lord is doing great things here. We are a team of 4 men and we have been knocking on people’s doors speaking to them about Jesus Christ! Ten people have accepted Jesus. They are 8 men and 2 women. One of these men was a seasoned Muslim and the Lord healed him of a strange sickness and Jesus revealed Himself to him. We are going back home on Monday next week. We need more prayer from you and the saints there. God bless you.

Wednesday, February 22, 2021: Another testimony by David Trapp
While David and Betsy Trapp were in Fort Lauderdale Florida visiting with her daughter Becky, David had an opportunity to give a testimony while dining with several of Becky's friends. During the conversation Becky's friend made this statement out of the blue. “I have never seen an angel; have any of you ever seen an angel. Betsy spoke up and said David has seen an angle, so he began to relate this story.
David was returning from South Carolina where he had attended an auto (auction; he didn't purchase a vehicle on this trip. As he and a driver were returning, they had encountered a severe storm, it was blowing the car. David had a teenage driver on this trip, while he was laid back resting his eyes. This girl was a heathen; she spoke up and said Mr. David, Mr. David; there is an angel on the hood this car. David thought, what is this girl seeing? He on unreclined the seat, he looked up and sure enough there was a nine- or 10-foot angel on the hood of his car. They were going down the road at about 55 mph and there he stood, David could see his backside and his right side. He stood there are 30 to 35 minutes. He was standing there protecting them. He was tall, magnificent like a military man. David realized later that he was a Ceraphim; He had two sets of wings. An awesome visitation! Praise the Lord!
Monday, February 22, 2021: Testimony by David Trapp
David and Betsy were on the way home from Florida's from visiting with Becky their daughter. The plane was full, he and Betsy both had isle seats. David remembered that David Lindsay had prayed for an encounter on the way back to California and God answered his prayer. So, David began to pray the same prayer.
This young lady came and sat down beside him; She was a hippy type young lady. She was a bartender. David struck up a conversation with her asking her if she traveled alone, she said she did. She like to go to a lot of different places; it was easy to find a job because she was a bartender with a good personality. David continued asking her questions to get to know her story. He asked about her parents who had been separated from each other and were now back together. David told her that he and his wife had been separated for a while and were back together now. He asked her what her dad's name was; she answered David; and you remind me of him. She had never been married and she did not have any children, she was 39 years old. She dad a boyfriend and hope that they would marry at some point. He was a boat captain; carrying millionaires out in the Gulf in different places. It was one of these cruises that they met each other. Eventually David asked her can I pray for you she said yes. As he began to pray, she held his hand with her hand on the other hand on his arm. As David prayed, she began to cry; David continued to pray and she continued cry. She said, “This is a miracle of 200 people on this plane I am sitting with you;” she said, this is got to be a God thing.” David asked her about her relationship Lord; she said she had received Jesus as Lord when she was a child; she said she would never forget this day and hugged David neck.
David was thankful to God for this opportunity; knowing that he was right where God wanted him to be at that moment. These God moments he will never forget. Praise God!
Wednesday, February 24, 2021: a testimony by Trace Mayo
Trace was working at the barbershop in downtown West Monroe went two man came in for a haircut. But all the barbers were booked up the rest of the Day. Trace thought to himself that this would be a good opportunity to share Jesus Christ with these two men; so, he invited them to come after the closing hour. The they came late and Trace started cutting their hair and sharing Jesus. He could tell that this was a God moment because they were hanging on every word that he spoke to them. Trays was crying in the barbershop as he was talking to him about Jesus; they were hanging on every word he spoke. God was ministering to these two men and also to Trace himself.
Trace invited them to church. These two men were contractors from Idaho that movie all over the United States to do their work. They thought it was a random barbershop that they chose but it was God ordained. After he had cut their hair to three more people came in; he made it extra hundred dollars that evening.
They came to church with him more than once; he could tell the God was drawing them. He invited them on Sunday to a first step class where they introduced people to Jesus. During that time both of them said they wanted to be followers of Jesus and be baptized. So that morning Trace, himself baptized both of these men along with another man. Both of them knew that this was the hand of God working in their life and that He had a future for them. Praise the Lord!
Wednesday, May 25, 2016: Testimony by Gary Lively: Whit Bass and I had been invited to pray with someone at the home of Robert Lindsey Wednesday, May 25th. I arrived in Monroe early to meet up with Whit at St. Francis to pray (James 5:15) with a lady who had cancer before we headed to Robert's. We were disappointed to find out the lady we were there to pray for had been released from the hospital. We had some time to spare and i remembered a person in my family that was struggling with addictions and as a result in his marriage (prov. 13:15) was suffering. I called this person and asked if he wanted to meet us for prayer. He agreed and we decided to meet in the parking lot of First Baptist Church in West Monroe. We arrived there before he arrived and found out Mei Powers was in the prayer room praying for different needs of church members. Premie Joseph pulled up and walked in to join Mei in prayer. Soon I received a call, it was the person we were waiting on asking if his wife could join us. We got excited that we were going to have the opportunity to pray over this newly married couple. When they arrived, we began conversation about the various struggles that people go was thru and how his behavior was affecting his wife and marriage. Soon Premie and Mei came out and began encouraging his wife and joined us in encouraging them as husband and wife. Whit asked this person if he was born again (Jn. 3:3) and explained that absolutely nothing was going to work out for the glory of God if not. No true freedom (Jn 8:36) comes outside a redeemed life thru the blood of our savior Yeshua. He explained he had prayed a prayer when he was young but his life had never bore the fruit (matt 7:16) of a truly converted and redeemed person (1 Jn. 2:15-17). We held hands and began to cry out to god on his behalf in the middle of the parking lot. He started crying out with his own voice for Jesus to save and purify him. His wife was weeping for her husband as well. It was a beautiful time together believing god for restoration and deliverance. We arrived late to Robert's but full of hope and encouraged because of the church service in the parking lot of the church building. Please do not get these confused. You are the church (1 Cor. 12, Eph. 2:20-22)!
In Jesus service
