We had an amazing month of ministry in April. Our first event with Billy Graham’s flagship radio station “106.9 The Light” went very well. We had just over 300 people attend that one event and 17 people gave their lives to Jesus Christ! Praise God! Many testimonies of how the training impacted people have come in. I’ll share some later in the report.
One of the most amazing evangelistic experiences I’ve ever had also happened this month. Long story short…I was at a small motel in Cape May Courthouse, NJ to spend the night before a MAD Live Event. I met two ladies working at the front desk and spent 80 minutes sharing Christ with them. One of the two ladies was an atheist from Taiwan. God worked in her heart and she came to the MAD Live Event the next day and was born again! She has been attending the church ever since and is sharing her new found Savior with her coworkers! The entire story is on the BLOG on my website. Check it out. What an amazing God we serve!!!!!
In all, we quipped 412 people to begin sharing their faith in Christ this past month. We were blessed to have seen God work in the hearts of the people in attendance and the names of 22 more people were added to the Lamb’s Book of Life! Glory to God!!!
Here are some testimonies to bless your heart and encourage you:
“Attended Make a Difference training in Hickory on Saturday and MUST report what a real difference it has already made in my life! Even though my husband and I read the Word every day and pray daily, I kept feeling like I needed to do MORE. Now I know exactly HOW I can make a difference to bring people to Jesus without fear. And live Evangelism every day. Plant the seed and let God do the rest! Everyone who is part of a church really needs to think hard about bringing Don Sunshine and his Make a Difference training to your church. It WILL change your congregation! Thank you 106.9 for making this happen.”
“My wife Sherri attended your Make a Difference seminar at Christ Church in Hickory, NC. yesterday, April 9th. I was called away to baby sit my grandson so I couldn't attend but I'm watching the 3 videos that are on Youtube of your presentation. Anyway, Sherri came home and was very excited about what she learned and told me all about it. She said it was life changing. In fact she's flying to Austin, Texas as I type this for a business trip and took some of your materials to give out to whomever she sits with on the plane, haha. You really made an impression on her and she's stepping out of her comfort zone already. I too have been impressed with what I've learned so far from the videos.”
“I want to tell you THANK YOU !! for the message today at Christ Church in Hickory. It truly was a game changer for me. I know that I should be doing all of these things, but simply not sharing the Gospel more. I have been in sales for 28 years.” “I am going to share the Good News of Christ with everyone!!”
“Don, the Make A Difference seminar was awesome. You told the truth when you said it would be entertaining. But more than that I got a good perspective on how to share my faith with others in a more deliberate, boundry-breaking way! I hope to attend next time you are in the area, and I will recommend your seminar to others with great enthusiasm.” “Been using them in restaurants; when leaving a tip and asking if they need prayer. Also have developed friendships with workers at 7-11 and one young family man is an atheist. I shared the gospel of John with him and he said he was humbled that I would share that with him!!! I continually am so blessed and daily have been sharing tracts for over 25 years - even when I mail out my bills. I am widowed for 4 yrs. after 39 yrs of marriage. Our Lord is good and so faithful! Thank you soooo much!”

I haven’t mentioned our support needs in several months. We are currently at 71% and still trusting God to bring this to 100% in His timing. In the meantime, he has blessed us with love offerings that have kept us afloat and made up the difference.
