GRATEFUL FOR GOD’S USING TOTAL CHURCH LIFE!
 
  GOD HAS USED MANY OF YOU TO SUPPORT AND ENABLE US TO RESPOND TO HIS OPEN DOORS NATIONALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY THIS YEAR!
 
 
THANK YOU AND THANK GOD!
 
 

WE NEED TO LET OUR FRIENDS AND PARTNERS IN MINISTRY KNOW OF OUR FINANCIAL NEED AS WE CLOSE THIS YEAR AND CONTINUE IN 2014.
God is increasingly opening doors to help in Evangelism in the USA and Internationally especially in Brazil where thousands are being saved through our ministry each year. Also, TCL Ministry is spreading through Italy. We are to be there in May 2014 and focus on northern Italy and Cecily. Now with four of my books published in Spanish, the Spanish speaking countries as well as churches in the USA are calling on TCL for ministry and materials.

If you are planning to make year-end gifts for the work of our Lord, Please Consider to make a Special Gift to Total Church Life! Thank you so much!

RECENT SYNERGISTIC EVANGELISM LAUNCHING AND SEMINARS
BRAZIL: In January 2013 TCL Associate, Robin Robinson, spoke to the Brazilian Baptist Convention and launched Synergistic Evangelism materials just published in Portuguese. October 14-25 Darrell led the seminar in Curitiba with Director of Missions, Dorigival, then, presented it to 250 Seminary professors and students in Santos and Sao Paulo. God blessed with the training of more than 100 pastors and leaders and many decisions for Christ!

HARVEST BAPTIST ASSOCIATION, DECATUR, TX hosted by gracious and visionary Director of Missions, Dr. Gerry Lewis. What a blessing this was to be with him and his staff! I received the following statement in a letter from participant Pastor Bill Kimbley, Forestburg Baptist Church: “Thank you so much for your teaching Synergistic Evangelism. I found the teaching captivating and exactly where we are in our church. It was such a blessing to know that we are heading in the right direction in our church. I look forward to our staff reading your book and understanding more of what God is calling us to do. ………………….will be invaluable for our efforts as we carry out our own form of “synergistic” evangelism in Forestburg.”

CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH, VERNON, TX with Pastor Toby Castleberry we led a “Synergistic Evangelism” Weekend! Toby remarked, “It is a great tool that needs to be constantly kept before the people of the church. Everything gets better when we practice New Testament, Great Commission Evangelism. We are a mirror of Total Church Life Strategy. It gave us a practical blueprint for ministry! As a young person, I heard the people tell what you did when you were pastor in Vernon. They said that you had a passion to reach the lost and equipped the members. FBC went to every home and reached the lost for Christ!

Very interestingly, Toby became pastor of Calvary when the church was at rock bottom with a worship center seating around 300. He began to lead the church to practice Exalting the Savior, Equipping the Saints, and Evangelizing the Sinner. In three years they have visited every home in the city one time and have covered two-thirds of the town a second time. They have baptized 128 people this year. Calvary’s attendance grew to the point that the worship center could not accommodate the people. Toby and the church rented the Wilbarger County Auditorium that seats 1600 for Sunday mornings. Now they are having more than 800 in attendance. One of them is a young lady who was a child and a friend of our children when I pastored FBC, Vernon. A wayward life and drugs almost destroyed her. Kathy and I went to see her when we were in Vernon. Her situation and living quarters were deplorable. She was embarrassed and said that was the beginning of a turn-around for her. Calvary Baptist discovered her and led her to Christ. Today she is a counselor at the Mental Health Center. She led the prayer before I preached on Sunday morning. Several people made decisions that day as well as several on Saturday during our Saturation Evangelism effort.

DAUPHIN WAY BAPTIST OF MOBILE, AL for the Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the church’s relocation with Pastor, Dr. Adam Dooley. They asked me to tell the story of the Relocation. God richly blessed with great fellowship, joyful Celebration, and people making decisions for Christ.

FBC, HIGHLANDS, TX with Pastor Tim Edwards where we had an Evangelism Emphasis and Training Sunday in preparation for their Fall Feast. Their people (125 of them) hosted non-church “needy” people (57 came) for a good meal at the church facility. It was effective. Praise God for Pastor Tim and his passion to reach the lost for Christ!

BLUFF AVENUE BAPTIST, FORT SMITH, AR A call just came from Pastor Robert Berry who is praising the Lord for a Movement of God in soulwinning since we did a Total Church Life Revival and people got on fire to reach the lost. He said people are just showing up at church! A family including the 77 year old grandmother came to Christ through the ministry of the 8 year old girl’s Sunday School teacher. What an encouraging call!

Kathy had Cataract Surgery last week. She is recovering well, in spite of being a little too active getting ready for Thanksgiving.

A Wonderful Thanksgiving to you, your family, and your church!
