Friday, July 11, 2014: Today Mike Clark come by to me give me a check for Neil Powers mission trip to Medellin Columbia. Mike was excited about being given a new position with his AT&T in the engineering department. Through a series of almost supernatural happenings he was given this job without an engineer's degree. He was given a test and passed it; the one over that department wanted him to be a part of his team. This will give Mike a job without as much pressure; he will work five days a week, eight hours a day, and this will relieve him of a lot of stress where he can minister to God's people. This is in his heart to do. Several weeks ago, he did his first funeral; God helped him and he was able to present the gospel of Jesus Christ. Afterward three people wanted to line him up to do their funerals and one man told him that he needed to be the pastor of a church. Mike was grateful for God's help.
For the past two evenings I have talked to Andy Magee in Pineville about two subjects.
The first is his decision to changed churches and go to a more charismatic congregation;
he has become disillusioned with attending churches. The other subject was about
several of his disciples who are hooked on pornography and how to help them overcome
Today I mailed off my manuscript, "What Is Man" to the editor for a second editing of this
book, I need all the help I can get.
Wednesday, July 2, 2014: I had received a call from Bonnie Moore who requested that I attend her father's 91st birthday day. I asked Jerry Linhares if he would like to attend with me and he did. I have been visiting with Mr. Jerome Adams now for close to 20 years. I have seen him move from a place where you hated preachers and church to where he loves his church and the pastor where he attends. Mr. Adams has become the family patriarch; he and I pray for his family each time we meet. At the birthday party he had children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, pastor and church friends attend. His grandson Jonathan publicly thanked me for investing in his grandfather life and paid for Jerry and my meal.
Wednesday, October 24, 2018: David Trapp and Mario Venzor were invited to a trailer home to visit OJ, a friend that they met last year. The previous day there had been fights; people wrecking cars, people being nasty to each other. When they got there, people were nervous and afraid. Mario began to talk about Jesus being the Lord and how He brings peace. Mario call the group together that were sitting around with fear and anger and began to talk to them about what Jesus could do for them and pray for them. Mario prayed for them to have faith and trust Jesus Christ as their personal savior and to receive the Holy Spirit.
There was one man there who was only about 4 feet tall; Mario said, “We all come short of the glory of God.” This man could probably identify with that. Mario said Zacchaeus was a short man, but having received the Lord into his home he became an extra-large giver. Mario prayed for this short man; there was another man that appeared frightened, Mario pray for him. There was a young lady that had gone through a lot heart ache, they pray for her. The Lord touched her; Mario prayed for OJ and his wife. This became an amazing time.
Mario is a man amazing man that is an evangelist that brings the presence of God.

Monday, October 22, 2018: I received a visit today from one of our pastors, Michael Stevens; he had this story to tell me. Today I needed to purchase some oats and was recommended by friend to go and see a man by the name of Truitt Lively; a farmer. I was warned beforehand that Truitt was a rough man and used some rough language, but I was encouraged to pray for this farmer. Truitt had had an operation where both of his knees, both were replaced; one of them was giving him trouble.
As I arrived to it was getting on his tractor. I started talking to Truitt and after a period of time asked him if I could pray for him. His reply was; “If you want too.” So, I began to pray for Truitt; asking God to heal his legs and bless him. He thanked me and said many people have visited with me, but you're the only one who has offered pray. Many years ago, he was a church member. I plan to go back and see Truitt and visit with him more.
Friday, June 27, 2014: Jerry Linhares and I had breakfast together. Jerry is experiencing some anxieties about what the future of his ministry is to look like. He talked about having a place to do counseling. Terry Duke gave Jerry a check for $2,500.00. He was encouraged by this. At noon Jerry, Gerald and I had lunch at the Kuntry Kitchen. There was a time of prayer for each other. Kerry Winters a distant acquaintance of mine came in for lunch and he was finishing lunch, I was impressed by the Lord to ask him if we could pray for him. He said, "Yes". He had three things he wanted us to join him in praying for: His son, his granddaughter, and a friend that was undergoing gallbladder surgery at that time. We had a great time in the Lord.
Monday, June 22, 2014: I received a call from Andy Magee in Pineville he wanted to talk to me about the things going on in his sphere. He recently was led by the Lord to changed churches. He moved to a more charismatic congregation. Andy has a vision of discipling man; at present he has six men that he is discipling. Later today I received another call from Andy to tell me that as he was leaving the coffee shop where he does most of his studies a young man ran into the parking lot and asked him if he would disciple him. He had to call with this good news. I am proud of what I see happening in Andy's life.
Tuesday, October 23, 2018; Hello Robert,
While in Florida recently I noticed a woman walking on the boardwalk with a strange limp in her ankle. The Lord gave me compassion towards her in that moment. I had a friend of Hannah with me named Ashley Prine. Her mother Michelle is a friend of Kelly McCormick Murphy. Ashley and I prayed for Vicky ‘s condition. Vicki said that her spine had a tumor that was incurable. So, Ashely and I prayed for the Lord to heal her body from the tumor and the effects of it. Below is a testimony from Vikki after we prayed with her.

I was so thankful for your precious prayer and sweet spirit when you prayed for me the other day. I was headed to the house to get more meds because I had a migraine coming on. As you prayed I trusted the Lord to heal me and in a few short minutes, the
Flashing lights and usual pre-headache problems were gone and I’ve had no problem since. I know His healing power is just as strong for this growth on my spine. Many thanks and blessings to you all.
Friday, June 20, 2014: I met with Mike Clark today to visit and give him a new
Bible presented by Covenant Life Fellowship. Mike is praying about applying
for a new job with AT&T in the engineering department, this would give him
more time off. Mike wanted to speak to me concerning the things going on in
his sphere. One of these is his wife's desire for them to pray together and also
go on mission trip together.
