Pastor Lonnie Stewart preached for us today and what a great message he had for New Life. He has a great memory and quoted many many scriptures in the course of his message. O so good! He preached the greatest message on Christ all the way from Genesis to Revelations! New Life really soaked in the Word today!
He has a wonderful ministry of helping to serve communities in Hurricanes and disasters - feeding and clothing thousands. In Hurricane Katrina his feeding sites fed multiplied thousands in several different locations. He has an incredible miraculous testimony of God healing him while he was working in relief work. While he was feeding people one day, a man came up to him wearing clothing that he gave him and eating food that he fed him, and he pulled a gun out and shot him in the head. Pastor Lonnie not only survived this vicious attack, but he is recovered and back out preaching the Gospel again!
For every 'fake' that people can point their fingers at and say that preachers aren't for real there are two genuine preachers that are for real. This is one of them!
Pastor Stewart brought his son Lonnie and his fiance Danielle with him and we sure enjoyed his singing. Wow what a voice! We enjoyed meeting them and feel like we will see them again down the road. Sweet kids.
