August 4, 2003. A small group of men decided to start a chapter of the Full Gospel Business Mens Fellowship International (FGBMFI) in my town. The Lord put a person on my heart to invite. I had his phone number and address. I called him but the number was wrong. I went by his home but the address I had was wrong also. So I sat in the driveway of the home that I thought was this guys. I prayed, Lord, you put this guys name on my heart to invite but I have no way of finding him. If you will put him on my path today then I will invite him. Within 30 minutes he walks into the office that I work at, I invited, and he accepted.
One day my brother-in-law and I were out street witnessing. We were walking down this highway, making a loop around a certain part of a town close to where we live. We had prayed before we set out and agreed to only walk were the Lord would show us to walk and only to talk with the people that the Lord would show us to talk to. We did exactly this and talked with many people with not a great deal of any type of reaction, sometimes walking entire streets without seeing anyone. Regardless we stayed faithful to our agreement and we went only were the Lord said and talked with only who the Lord said. We ended up on this highway were we could see down it for about 2 miles without any obstruction. We both noticed this fellow walking toward us down the highway, both of us confirmed later that we have no idea where he came from, because only a few seconds before he was not there. We went to talk with him. He at first did not make much sense and we both believed that he was either mentally handicap or had been burnt out on drugs. Regardless, as we continued to talk with him many of the things did make a great deal of sense. We were talking with this fellow and someone out of the blue stops and gives us $20 and asks us to take this fellow and get him something to eat. We asked him if he was hungry and if he wanted us to take him to get something to eat, he said yes. It was very good that this person stopped because neither of us had any money on us. We start walking down the highway and there is a McDonalds and a Burger King about 100 yards in front of us. Down the highway another mile or 2 is a Taco Bell and some other places. We ask him were he wants to go, without even looking up or pausing he says, Taco Bell. We ask him if he is sure and he says yes. We ask again and he says yes. During this time he begins to talk about all of the People in the village living in houses made of straw. He says, They are all going to burn one day, they all need to know Jesus. By the way, he says that his name is Mr. Fields. My brother-in-law and I are very curious now to see what is about to happen. We get in front of McDonalds. I mean we are 50 feet from the front door. I ask him, are you sure that you dont want to just go to McDonalds, it is getting late. The time is now 9pm. He says no, he wants to go to Taco Bell, so we go to Taco Bell. When we arrive my brother-in-law takes Mr. Fields and gets him something to eat. I get the blessing of leading 2 people to the Lord. After this Mr. Fields leaves us and my brother-in-law and I go back home rejoicing.

Just curious... how many moderators do we have? I didn't know beauxp was a moderator.
Brother Beaux was moderator for a short time a long time ago. He has become very busy and dislocated from being active on the website and this ministry.Right now there are 3 moderators and you can see links to their profiles in the forums section to the right hand side of every forum section.
