Breakfast (And the Gospel) Is Served!

Monday morning (early Monday morning) we traveled north to Lancaster Sheriff's Station. The purpose of the trip was to cook breakfast for the station family and to give away copies of Take Up The Shield. John (Ten-Four Ministries Advisory Board) and Justin Howard (flanking me in the above photo) spent nine months designing and building the cooking trailer, for the purpose of blessing others. Ten-Four Ministries made an investment in the project, and John and Justin roll out the trailer whenever the Lord presents us with an opportunity to bless the law enforcement family.

Lancaster Station is one of the busiest patrol stations in Los Angeles County. The commanding officer is Captain Carl Deeley (Ten-Four Ministries Advisory Board). Carl is recognized as one of the best commanding officers in the county, and is very well respected by the rank and file. Carl and Chaplain Rick Curtis joined us in cooking breakfast for 80-100 members of the station family.

As we satisfied the deputies stomachs, we also sought to meet their spiritual need. We gave away more than 40 copies of Take Up The Shield. The cost of the books was covered by donations made to the Take Up The Shield Project. We also gave away an equal number of Running Beyond Inspiration. This book has always been a free resource. Since we published the book, we have given away well over 5,000 copies to officers and civilians around the world.

It was a great morning! We were blessed to spend the morning enjoying wonderful fellowship with the deputies, civilian personnel, and volunteers assigned to Lancaster Station.

Please pray that those who received free copies of the books will read them. Pray that the Lord will use the books to present the gospel to those who need to hear. Pray that the Lord will use this simple effort to draw many to repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you are a member of the law enforcement family, live in the greater Los Angeles area, and would like us to bring the Ten-Four Ministries cooking trailer to your station or department, please contact me at: 661-260-1878.

There is never any charge to have us cook a meal for the law enforcement family. Ten-Four Ministries covers all costs associated with the event. Any ministry-related materials we bring to the event are given to participants as gifts. We will come to your station or department to give, not to receive--to serve, not to be served.

Breakfast (and the gospel) is served! Let us come and serve you.
