Well, it’s official now. We are going to hold our first full Harvest Crusades event in the great city of Chicago next year!
Chicago is the third largest city in America and, of course, the home of one of the greatest evangelists who ever lived, D.L.Moody. It is also home to some amazing churches that have invited us and offered their support.
I have always wanted to preach in Chicago, so I am really looking forward to it. I am hoping that some of you might even be able to join us for what will be a historic event for Harvest Ministries.
The dedication of Lucy Christopher Laurie
I dedicated my second granddaughter–and daughter of Christopher and Brittany Laurie–yesterday at church.
Christopher and Brittany picked the name Lucy together (It means “light”). Brittany picked the middle name of Christopher after my son went to heaven, in honor of him. Christopher means “bearer of Christ.”
So we pray that little Lucy will be a light who brings Jesus to others. She is just the sweetest little girl and it was a pleasure to dedicate her to Her Father in heaven, who happens to be holding her earthly father in His tender care.
I will post a copy of the video of that dedication soon.
A challenging day
Many of you prayed for our family, as yesterday was our first Father’s Day without our oldest son, and I thank you for that.
Being a graphic artist, he always designed the most amazing Father’s Day cards.
We missed him and miss him so very much, and loved and love him. Yes, it was a hard day, but we made it!
I asked my good friend Don McClure to speak, and he did a wonderful job. If you would like to watch his message, click here.
We are looking forward to what the Lord will do this week. I will be speaking in O.C. this coming Thursday from my series, Essentials: What Every Christian Needs to Know.
My topic this Thursday is “Angels and Demons” (no relation to the movie out of that title). We will talk about these mysterious creatures and the role they play in our lives.
Also, this coming Friday, I will be speaking at Creation Fest Northeast in Pennsylvania.
This annual Christian music festival is attended by thousands and thousands of people. So if you know anyone in that area, let them know I will be there. My topic will be “Down-to-Earth Talk About Heaven.”

Well, that’s all for now. Have a blessed day walking with Him.
