Mike (Bishop) and Ellen Swalley's Wedding

Well, my good friend Mike Swalley (Bishop)and ministry partner, got married last Friday the day after thanksgiving to Ellen. It was an awesome time and it took place in Oswego, IL outside of Chicago. It’s so great to see the hand of God in Mikes life with how He brought him and Ellen together at the perfect time. Mike and Ellen met at Dallas Theological Seminary and hit it off quickly! After a few dates, and a few months later, they were married. So, at the wedding there was some great bboying going on. Bishop and his groomsmen were wearing converse tennis shoes with their outfits. So I (josh) had to bring my dancing shoes also. Bishop and I had a fun 3 round battle against each other. Praise the Lord Mike and Ellen are now one ! “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.” -Proverbs 18:22

Preaching the gospel in the Schools

Break Free has been extremely busy over the past month or so. We have been able to dance and share the gospel at many different schools. Calvary Chapel Las Vegas, San Juan Capistrano Valley Christian, Foothill high, University High and Woodbridge high are all of the different schools we have served at. A couple of schools have been Christian and others have been public. But it’s been amazing to see the amount of students who have attended these outreaches. At Foothill High we had around 450 students hear the gospel, while a few responded to receive Christ personally. At Woodbridge there were probably around 150 students who heard and many were saved. We ran out of Bibles to give out because so many wanted to have a Bible afterwards. One student wanted a bible and we didn’t have any left. But I had some in my car so my friend Kyle ran out and grabbed it for him. He was willing to be late to class so that he could get a copy of God’s Word! I encourage you to watch the videos just to see the amount of students who came, the Lord is so good! And to be forward, we saw almost 20 students at Capistrano Valley Christian receive Jesus as Lord. It was amazing to watch the Lord convict and draw many young people to himself. I am so pumped to see God moving it great ways and also that we are still able to go to public schools in California preaching the Gospel! Please continue to pray that the Lord would raise up workers for this harvest. “The harvest is plentiful and the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” –Luke 10:2
