This last Saturday, Linda, Daniel, and I had the great opportunity to meet Emilio and Trish Ramos at Southlake Town Center and take part in some street evangelism. Trish has a fabulous website called Fish With Trish where she chronicles the evangelistic efforts that she and Emilio head up here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Emilio is also one of the pastors at Sovereign Joy Community Church right here in Keller, TX (just around the corner from where we live.)
I first heard Trish on her regular evangelism segment Thursdays on The Way Of The Master Radio Program. The Lord has been convicting me that I need to step up my own evangelism efforts and He has used The Way Of The Master quite a bit in that process. Since Emilio and Trish are right in my backyard, I email Trish and asked if we could tag along on their regular Saturday evening excursions. Of course she emailed back and said they looked forward to seeing us there.
I was very impressed with Emilio and Trish and have since checked out their church website and am so thankful that there is another doctrinally sound and evangelistic minded church in our area. I even more please to see that Daniel took to sharing his faith almost like a fish to water! He just jumped right in with Dennis, who helps to oversee the evangelism efforts of Sovereign joy, and was almost fearless in talking with people. Here is a picture from Trish's blog site:
Daniel is standing just to the right of Brandon, who is doing the preaching. It really did my heart good to see him sharing his faith. What more could a father ask for?
I am so thankful for ministries like Fish With Trish and Sovereign Joy Community Church. We will most definitely be back again!
