TOTAL CHURCH LIFE REPORT
Darrell Robinson
January -- May, 2008

 

During the first five months of 2008, God has marvelously blessed!  Robin has preached, taught, taken care of the TCL office, managed the TCL Website, and had Chaplain's Duty with the 7/6th CAV Apache Attack Helicopter Squadron in Conroe, TX.  He is a Captain in the United States Army Reserve.  He has taken care of the "home front" while Darrell has traveled extensively.
 
JANUARY
 
January 5-8:  Darrell began the new year participating in a meeting for Evangelists hosted by Jerry Drace in Jackson, TN.  It was an excellent meeting.  Darrell preached on Sunday at Malesus Baptist Church for Pastor Ken Story.  God blessed with many commitments for soulwinning.
 

January 11-13:  Darrell led a Total Church Life Conference at FBC, New Braunfels, TX with Pastor Brad McLean.  He is the new pastor there and doing a great job.  Some 200 members committed to join their pastor in reaching their area with the Gospel.                                                                                                                                

 

Dr. Brad McLean leads Soulwinners Commitment at Malesus Baptist, Jackson, TN.    Dr. Ken Smith leads Soulwinners Commitment Prayer Prayer at FBC, New Braunfels.                                        

                                         
 
January 25-31:  Darrell led a People Sharing Jesus Seminar, Saturation, and Revival for FBC, North Houston, TX with Pastor Larry Reinke.  There were 10 professions of faith and God gave a spirit of Revival.  The pastor said it was a new start for him and the church.
 
FEBRUARY
 

February 3:  Chaplain, Captain Robin Robinson scheduled Darrell to preach at the Army base in Conroe, TX.  Darrell preached on John 3:16.  The message was well received by the troops and several lifted their hands that they were receiving Christ.

 
February 4-6:  Kathy and Darrell participated in the SBTC Evangelism Conference in Euless, TX by providing a TCL booth to encourage Biblical Evangelism.  Numerous contacts were made.                 
 
February 8-10:  Darrell led a People Sharing Jesus Weekend with Pastor Dennis Parish at Needham Road Baptist Church, Conroe, TX.  People were trained in soulwinning and went out witnessing with many good responses.
 
February 12-13:  Darrell delivered the Louis Drummond Evangelism Lectures for Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, MO.
 

February 15-20:  Darrell led a PSJ Seminar and Saturation and Revival for Parkview Baptist Church, Las Animas, CO with DOM Frank Cornelius.  14 made professions of faith and several others were reached in personal witness and small group ministries.

 
MARCH
       
March 1-2:  Darrell and Kathy assisted Pastor John Butler and New Bethel Baptist Church, Harrison, TN with a TCL Conference.  God gave an outpouring of Revival.  100 members committed to join their pastor in reaching the Harrison Bay area to take the Gospel of Christ to every person (11,000 population).  John is an outstanding pastor who is using TCL strategy to lead the church.  I met John when he was a church planter and shared TCL principles for reaching the lost.  He had been taught about Marketing the Church, but they were not reaching people.  That afternoon he did as I suggested about knocking on doors and sharing Christ.  He led three people to Christ.  When he became the pastor of New Bethel, he invited me to help train the church in TCL Strategy.

March 7-8:  The Robinson family participated in our Granddaughter Blakely Robinson's wedding to Scott Sumners.  It was a joyful time of the marriage of two committed young Christians.
                            
 
March 9-10:  Darrell preached for Pastor Chuck Reynolds and the new Grace Baptist Church in Abiliene, TX and at the Evangelism Conference of Cross Timbers Association and DOM Dwaine Clower.  Chuck Reynolds is doing a fine work leading Grace Baptist.  They are securing a building and property in a strategic area in Abilene.  Pray for them.
 
March 16:  Darrell and Kathy were with FBC, Pasadena, TX where they served in the 1970's.  Pastor Charles Redmond was gracious to invite the church's former pastor to preach.  God is working in the exciting church giving a tremendous spirit of revival and soulwinning.  The services were marvelous in celebrating Jesus.  Several received Christ.
 
March 20:  Darrell spent the day with representatives of the North American Mission Board and the Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists working on procedures for the Baptism Assistance Project to help churches with a low baptism history to begin to reach the lost and baptize them.
 
March 23:  It was a joy to celebrate Easter with Memorial Baptist Church, Robin and family, and Lori and children.
 
March 28-30:  Robin did an excellent job leading a Total Church Life Conference for Crossroads Fellowship and Pastor Carl Durden in Nederland, TX.
 

March 24--April 2:  Darrell flew to Sao Paulo, Brazil where he met Pastor Odilon.  On the plane Darrell had the joy of leading Leandro, a Brazilian, to Christ.  Two days were spent doing planning for TCL in Brazil.  Wile ordering pizza, Darrell led the woman who waited on him to Christ.  She had gone to a Pentacostal church searching, but was disappointed by their over emphasis on money.  Then, Darrell and odilon went on to Corumba, Brazil in the Pantanal.  Three people received Christ on the plane.

Odilon witnessed to a tall, attractive, young woman on the plane.  She received Christ.  Sha had said that her name was Jennifer.  When she received Christ, she said that her name was not "Jennifer" but is "Reinaldo."  I am a MAN.  HE said that he desperately needed help.  Odilon taught him from scripture about what he should do now in growing in Christ.  God did a miracle.

In Corumba it was extremely hot--the temperature got up to 115 degrees and the churches had no air conditioning.  We spent two hours sharing Jesus Strategy to Reach Your Area with the pastors in Corumba and nearby Bolivia.  They were excited about reaching their communities.

Two hundred pastors and people attended the Total Church Life Seminar and committed to witness and reach every person in Corumba with the Gospel of Christ.  On Sunday night twenty four adults professed faith in Jesus Christ.  Four hundred people committed to be soulwinners.  Darrell had the joy of leading the hotel receptionsist, an Indian woman, to Christ.  She wept with gratitude for Jesus.  We returned to Sao Paulo and, then, Darrell returned to the USA and cooler weather.

APRIL -- WAS A TREMENDOUS MONTH FOR TOTAL CHURCH LIFE
 
April 4-7:  Dr. Rodney Williams and Hunt Baptist Association, Greenville, TX hosted a TCL Seminar, PSJ Seminar, and an Evangelism Conference.  Darrell led the seminars and preached at the Evangelism Conference.  37 Pastors made commitments to equip and lead their churches to reach their Primary Ministry Areas with the Gospel.  400 members came forward to commit themselves to join their pastors in being God's Army to reach every person in their areas with the Gospel.

At FBC, Commerce, TX, 51 members made soulwinning commitments, 2 professions of faith, and one older man united with the church by statement.
 
April 11-12:  Darrell had the joy of leading a TCL Seminar for Big Spring, TX Association hosted by his home church, First Baptist, Coahoma, TX where he surrendered to preach.  John McCullough is DOM.  65 pastors and leaders committed to reach their church's areas with the Gospel.
 
April 13-16:  Darrell led a Revival at Sherwood Baptist, Odessa, TX with Pastor Ivy Shelton.  God blessed with an outpouring of revival.  14 professed faith in Christ.  Pastor Shelton said that the revival spirit has given them a new start as a church.
 
April 25-30:  Darrell led a People Sharing Jesus Seminar and Saturation and Revival with Pastor Ray Payne at Ephesus Baptist, Jewett, TX.  Again, God blessed with an outpouring of Revival that has continued with a dramatic increase in attendance and continuing professions of faith.  During the revival some 43 people accepted Christ including 25 AWANA children and young people (The church is following up with them and their families).  An older man, James - 67 yrs. old, who had been very resistant, was led to Christ in his home by Pastor Ray and Darrell.  He was immediately transformed.  That night at the beginning of the service, he stood and confessed Christ and gave his testimony.  What a tremendous beginning for an evangelistic service.  Only God could do this!  Praise the Lord for the work of His Holy Spirit.
 
MAY
 
May 2-4:  What a joy it was to lead a TCL Conference at Memorial Baptist, Spring, TX with our Pastor Cliff Mayton.  This is our church, which is very supportive of our ministry.  Robin works with young adults in the church and his wife, Jody, has just become Children's Director.  God richly blessed!
 
ON MAY 17 TWO OUTSTANDING EVENTS TOOK PLACE.  IT MARKED THE FIFTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF DARRELL'S SURRENDER TO PREACH ON MAY 17, 1953.  AT THE VERY HOUR AND MINUTE OF HIS SURRENDER TO PREACH, DR. PHIL ROBERTS, PRESIDENT OF MIDWESTERN BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY, PRESENTED DARRELL WITH THE PRESIDENT'S MEDALLION IN HONOR OF HIS MINISTRY AND EVANGELISTIC WORK.  Is this coincidence?  Or, a God incident?  What a Blessing from God!
