Hello everybody, its been a while but I hope you are all doing well. I am asking my brothers in the lord to keep me up in prayer as I begin my personal ministry. I have been asking the lord for years now to use me and direct my path. Well the lord has been dealing with me for about the last month and a half about doing street ministry. He has given me visions of me out witnessing to young adults (21-35 age) at local night clubs in my area. I had put it off for a while but last night he called me by name and spoke to me around 3am.
It may sound strange to some but I know most will understand. Anyhow, the lord said Travis I said to go out into the world and preach the gospel, not to wait on them to come to you. To be fishers of men you must go and let out your line, you cant catch fish if you dont go to the sea. The spirit realy began to show me outside of clubs late at night witnessing to people. The lord continued to tell me that to many churches are content with preaching to the same people every sunday. He said that its fine to stop an speak to people while your out doing your daily thing and might happen to speak to some one, but I need you to make a effort and set apart a time to go out on my behalf and do my work.
The last thing He asked was , Travis all those years you were going to all those clubs did anyone ever stop you and tell you about me? I realy layed there and thought about it and relized that no one had. As many churches that are in my city not one time had any one witnessed to me outside of a place where many sinners are going every weekend. I said wow! I spoke back and told the lord that I will go. About 15 min later I woke my wife and told here what had just happend. we layed ther and spoke about.
I plan on making a small documentary while doing this and hopefully I can find 2-3 brothers that feel lead to do this with me, I will be making flyers with random questions pertaining to life and death and what the word of God say about both. I will hand them out and ask if I can get about 5 min of there time and take it from there.
So as you can see its going to be a challenge but exciting at the same time, this is well needed. I belive that my generation is so braiwashed and deceived at the hour and we need more young man and women of god to stand up with boldness and get out fromt the walls of the church and start putting in some kingdom buisness.
Jesus was not in the synagogue the majority of the time, he was in those streets going to where our now modern day gangsters, thugs, homosexuals, phornicators, theivs and etc. where hanging at.
So once agin I just ask that you guys keep me up on prayer and remember when we take care of gods buisness he will take care of ours. Amen and God bless.

Something I want to share with all of you here
Praise our Lord !
God made us to His own image. He sees what is best in us and He expect us to see the best in each other. I told my dad couple of nights ago that to me, he was like God. See, my dad always allowed me to do whatever I wanted to even when I was a little kid. He would give me his advice and what he thought was right but he would always let me choose for myself. In the end I always ended up listening to my dad (more so than to my mum who had a more traditional approach to disciplining children ) I trusted my dad and I had faith that he knew what was best for me even if that sometimes contradicted with what I wanted for myself.
God wants this same personal father-son/daughter relationship with His people. After all, He created us and He knows us better than we know ourselves. He also loves us unconditionally because He sent His son Jesus to die for our sins so we can have eternal life.
He gave us His wisdom in The Bible and the free will to choose. All evil in this world does not come from God but from us rejecting His Wisdom.
It is never too late to get back to our Father

asking that everyone keep me in your prayers and thoughts for tomorrow morning. I have a strongman that I am in and am pretty excited about it, just hoping to come out uninjured and get over the mild sickness I got today before tomorrow.

I'm in the spirit of talking at the moment and so....
I'll share with you a little story from my life, just to show everyone how personal our God is and how He gives you all the things you desire but ONLY if you seek Him First and if you give Him glory for all that you achieve !
A couple of weeks ago, I came first in an 8hr mountain biking race. I still can't get over it
It was a miracle of God, I had not ridden my bike in a whole year and I had done zero training (I used to race a lot before I started with the whole bodybuilding business). The race was in a remote area of Queensland and my friend Jerry and I camped there. I slept a total of 45min prior to the race (I was too cold ).
I Started the race waaaay too hard and almost died on my third lap , then went for a 4th one which took me 30min longer to complete (1hr 20min). I hated every minute of that 4th lap , I was feeling sick, thought I was going to faint and vomit.
I decided to let go of my pride and quit (sometime during my third lap a woman passed me and the “devil in me” started getting annoyed and obsessed with pushing harder to win. I knew that was wrong and God made it clear to me because thereafter is when I started feeling sick, it was a tough spiritual battle I tell ya ! ).
Now, people who know me know also that I would rather die than quit and admit defeat ....however, it was necessary to let go of my pride (pride like that is an abomination to God!)....and so I stopped after finishing that 4th slog of a lap....and then He said to me, "Go and do another one" I responded – God are you serious ?!!!! I nearly died there !!! Oh well, let’s do it then, after all, awhile back I prayed to God to teach me to grow in faith so that one day I have the kind of faith that King David had....and well, as it was mentioned before in this thread, If you want to walk on the water, you need to step out of the boat
And so, I jumped back on my bike and the minute I was out there on the track I realized that I was racing powered by God's grace ! I did not only do one more lap but 3 more !!! And each of those 3 was done 30 min faster than my 4th lap(50min per lap) ! I stopped feeling sick and I was hammering the track like there was no tomorrow. IT WAS AMAAAAAZING !!!!!
If you want to go, you got to let go, all God asked of me to let go that day was my pride....and I’ve learned that anything God asks of you to let go isn’t worth keeping anyway Always chose obedience to God over convenience and faith in your own abilities.
There is another end of this story...and it shows how God is in absolute control of EVERYTHING that happens. See, my friend Jerry goes to church, believes in God but refuses to surrender to Him. Jerry has a superbike, light racing machine worth $8000. He trains 6 days a week, he can do 100km as a joke. He is also obsessed with winning. Well, Jerry had to pull out of the race that day because his achiles tendon started to hurt. When I finished the race I told Jerry, you don’t need to be fit, you only have to put faith into God instead of your training and light bikes Seek God first and He’ll give you the rest

And now for the first time here I've got a prayer request !
I am racing tomorrow again. It is a short race, it will only take couple of hours to finish but the only reason I'm entering in it is - to get into a lucky draw for a chance to win a free entry (normally worth 2600$) to the toughest mountain biking race in the world. The Crocodile Trophy. 1200km over 9 days. I want to go in it so I can be a witness of God's great works ! My training strategy is written in the Bible and I would like the world to know what a powerful tool the Word of God is
Please pray for me ! Spiritual battles can only be won with spiritual weapons !
