Golden Spur is Going Green…But Not in the Hippie Way!

St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, is just around the corner.  If you cut through the myths that surround the life and times of Patrick of Ireland it becomes pretty clear that he was a mighty man of God.  During the fifth century he was captured in Wales by Irish raiders and taken to Ireland as a slave for six years before escaping.  After rejoining his family he returned to Ireland as a Celtic bishop and faithfully served the Lord as he brought the people of Ireland the Word of God and the Gospel.  As a result the island was forever changed for the Lord and He was able to use Irish missionaries to spread the Gospel for years to come in a way not seen since the first century.  The Lord used one man’s faith, love, and humility to light an “Irish fire” and start a chain reaction of growing discipleship and spreading of the Gospel!

You say, “What does that have to do with cowboy ministry or going green?”  Every year we have the opportunity to minister at the Houston Livestock Show.  It literally is the first green grass we see each year (as Houston starts greening up about a month before Kansas City does).  More importantly, it is one of the greatest opportunities we have to spread the Word to a mass audience AND see a Patrick-style ripple effect that continues to other rodeos and changes lives for years to come.

As you pray for us this month please remember the outreach services.  We completed one just last weekend (see the picture below) and we have two more on March 11th and 18th.  

We also ask for your prayer for our ministry team.  We partner with the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys for these services and serve alongside FCC board members and the Houston FCC chapter.
