Lost Boy in San Diego

March 19th, 2009 Posted in family, lost boy, Lost Boy Blog, OC, Pastor's corner, travel

We had a great night at Maranatha Chapel, Pastor Ray Bentley’s church in San Diego.

We showed the newly-edited, full-length Lost Boy documentary, followed by a message. I also interviewed my son Jonathan, who gave his testimony.

You have to understand that Jonathan is not really a public speaker, nor did he ever aspire to be one. But that all changed after his brother went to heaven. Jonathan made a complete commitment to follow and serve the Lord, and God is using him powerfully.

He gave his most effective presentation yet last night, and I was very proud of him. When he is speaking, I look out and notice that everyone really tunes in, especially the kids!

We saw 120 people come forward to make commitments and re-commitments to follow Christ.

Thursday nights in O.C.

Tonight is our second Thursday night Bible study. We were overwhelmed by the response on our first night, and we pray that God will bless it once again.

My message title is “The God Who Cares.” If you, or anyone you know, is in the O.C. area, please let them know about our study.

Thanks for your prayers.

    I just want to say thank you, Greg, for your faithfulness in God’s service. I have read your book, Lost Boy, and was greatly inspired by it. It truly shows that we can overcome our past by keeping our eyes on Jesus. I thank the Lord that He uses you to reach so many lost or hurting souls.
    God Bless you and yours,

    Hmmm, reminds of another young man who ended up becoming a full-time preacher. He once wrote a book called . . . oh, what was it . . . oh yeah! “Lost Boy.”
