  5. 5. Every Believer Sharing, Every Person Hearing by 2020 As many as three out of four people die in North America without a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. As Southern Baptists, we believe Scripture has provided a simple roadmap for change. With every believer sharing, every person should have an opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel by the year 2020. We call it GPS: God's Plan for Sharing. Praying —- Engaging —- Sowing —- Harvesting INTENT The intent is to engage every people group in North America with the good news. For us that means we start in our own community. For us it means we have set a goal to reach 210 people for Jesus in 2010. FRAMEWORK The framework is designed to produce consistency in every participating Southern Baptist church, association and state convention across North America. We have set into motion the necessary steps to begin reaching people in our community. We have already been praying specifically for our area of concentration —- those in a 1 mile radius of the church and “our” individual neighborhoods. Prayer is essential to the accomplishment of our goal. We prayed all throughout the month of February during the Wednesday evening prayer time. We ask that you continue to pray and be a vital part of FBCH bringing Christ to the streets of Hesperia. We have been blessed with a skillful and talented core group of people to advance our efforts in this cause to reach Hesperia for Christ. They include: These are our homes DeWayne Williams - GPS Coordinator Gloria Stockstill - Prayer Coordinator and our streets . . . Rita Amos - Home Prayer Groups Coordinator Bill Trott - Prayer Driving Groups Coordinator Lou Osborne - Prayer Walking Groups Coordinator this is our Jerusalem . . . Ken Kiner - Visitation and Follow-up Coordinator Pastor Bob Grissom - Administrative Coordinator this is our commission! Don Parker - Distribution Coordinator Ed Adams - Witness Training Coordinator The following steps have been initiated to facilitate our efforts in this cause to reach Hesperia for Christ —- • We are mobilizing our church to pray intensely for all lost people in our community and making an effort to reach those in our target area with the gospel and information about our church. • We are providing you, the body of Christ at FBCH, opportunities for training and equipping yourselves for witnessing and evangelism. This training is required for all who plan to serve in some capacity so there will be uniformity in our witnessing and evangelistic efforts in our targeted area. If you have not been in a training session, please contact Ed Adams. • We are updating our informational materials and making sure that our facility looks its best for company. • There will be a push to distribute literature from both the North American Mission Board and FBCH which will include an invitation for all in our targeted area to bring their families to an Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 3rd, at our church with an emphasis on getting them to attend Easter worship services with us on Sunday, April 4th. We believe, if we are diligent and faithful in our efforts, many lost people will be with us on Easter Sunday. We plan to take full advantage of this time to clearly present the gospel and provide an opportunity for people to respond. • Following the Easter season, we plan to celebrate with baptisms, reflect on changed lives, rejoice in the revival experienced in our community and praise God for the number of believers who were trained in evangelism. And we will continue to pray that God will extend this transformation in our hearts, through our church and into our community. As you can tell, the foundation is in place for us to have “every believer sharing and every person hearing” the gospel. Ultimately it is you who will determine the success or failure of GPS. To quote J. Hudson Taylor, “We have heard of many people who have trusted God too little, but have you ever heard of anyone who trusted Him too much?” You are encouraged to be a part of this exceptional evangelistic effort. Look at the many opportunities to serve in areas of critical need and allow God to lead you to serve in some capacity. Contact one of the coordinators listed above and get involved. These are our homes and our streets . . . this is our Jerusalem . . . this is our commission! Page 5 Volume 4, Issue 2

  9. 9. Mother Daughter Luncheon The beauty of the Spring season is almost upon us. May 8 One of the most precious and treasured days of family recognition comes in the spring —- Mother’s Day. With that beautiful thought in mind, you are 11:30 am invited to attend the annual Mother - Daughter Luncheon at First Baptist Church. It will be a wonderful time of sharing the important and special gift God has blessed us with of being created in the feminine gender. Watch the weekly FBConnection Journal for more information about this event and regarding reservations. If you would like to speak with someone about this event, you may contact June Warwick at 1-760-244-9716. GPS: Every Lost Person Receiving a Witness We must sow the gospel in North America —- in the Victor Valley —- in Hesperia. Our mission field is becoming increasingly secular and pluralistic. We cannot assume that people understand the concepts of God as the Creator, sin, the cross, and salvation through Christ. We must share the good news and the truth of Scripture in every way possible. We must reach our neighbors and the nations. We must sow among the people groups of North America and identify receptive people. You may wonder how to go about being an effective witness. Here are some suggestions. • Make a list of people you meet, know, and that are in your sphere of influence, and pray for opportunities to witness to them. • Share with people in the regular activities of your life. • Pinpoint areas where you can do evangelism and creatively leave witnessing booklets. • What are you passionate about? Make what you are passionate about evangelistic. Page 9 Volume 4, Issue 2

If so, you must assess the problem, and then carefully and completely make the necessary repairs. You can never compromise your foundation or failure is certain. If your contractor wanted to cut costs so he could reap more profit for himself, then he has compromised. Say, he purchased cheaper materials than you instructed, but led you to believe that he bought the good stuff; he compromised. You see, compromise can take place both internally as well as externally. The contractor not only has compromised the integrity of the building, but his work ethic and personal integrity as well. Our children need to learn from us, what it is to have personal integrity. It is far more important than money or prominence. When God dwells within a persons life, they posses an inner confidence; this allows them to enjoy a clear conscience, peace of mind and heart and the security of knowing who they are. People, who lack personal integrity, have a shortfall of character as well. They are often not trustworthy, dependable or loyal. When a person is busy looking out for “#1,” they rarely concern themselves with the needs of others. As our children grow, they will begin to see why these three strategies play such a key roll in helping them prepare for their future. We need to remember we are life-long learners, and these are life lessons that should be modeled, lived, and taught daily. In the book of Ecclesiastes, chapter 3, it tells us there is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven. God himself designed life to be a constant ebb and flow of changes and experiences. Although they are not always enjoyable, they are necessary to our growth and maturity in Christ. What the author is saying here is that, He [God] has orchestrated life to be lived abundantly, but often times it seems meaningless and unfair. God is dependable, both in times of trouble and joy; he allows these phases to show his mercy, grace and never-ending love for us. As Gods children, we must remember, nothing happens by chance in this life. “Everything was made beautiful in it’s time.” We need to embrace life and all that it brings, learning through each experience. As you near the completion of your “remodel”, you will have a “final inspection”. At this time, a punch list of items that need correction will need to be addressed in order for you to pass the final inspection phase. You will need to be diligent and timely as you make these changes. As our children merge into adulthood, we will experience the final inspection of their lives. It is then that you will see who they have become and what convictions they hold dear. You will be surprised how much they remember what you have taught them, and what they learned just by observing you. You might experience disappointments in their choices, and maybe even a separation, until such time that they have learned what is necessary for their growth and maturity as Christian adults. Listen and learn about your children; love them with everything you have and pray over them daily. Remember, God loved them first and He knows them best. He will fill any gaps that are left. Preparation for the future does not ensure their success, however it will lessen the fallout. FBConnection: Chronicle Page 10
