I spent an hour with Dr. John Avant pastor of First Baptist Church of West Monroe. I wanted to be up front about bringing Bro. Charles Simpson in on June 3, 4 and 5. I only needed about five minuets but it was hard to leave after an hour. He gave me his blessings on the meeting and said that he would attend if he was not going to be in Central Asia. He knew of Bro. Charles, Bob Mumford, Derek Prince & Joseph Garlington. In John’s earlier days he was involved with a charismatic youth group and was instructed on how to speak in tongues and he did. For what ever the reason he did not see it as God. I don’t know if we are doing the best for a person to carry them into places where there is no hunger to go. Or could it be that we don’t leave the person in a place of faith in God to accept and understand the working of faith in a man’s life. I think that there must be both. I have been guilty of trying to take people into the baptism of the Holy Spirit when there was no hunger in the person for more.
