Chris Sippley, Justin Edwards, Pastor Chuck O'Neal, and members of his church family.
Chris and quickly hit it off, and he would eventually ask if he could serve as my intern to fulfill his internship requirement for his final quarter of school.
We've only known each other for a couple months, but I already love Chris as a son. Our time of fellowship, discipleship, and ministry together is very important to me.
Today was the first time Chris had ever been to an abortuary. Today was also the first time Chris ever open-air preached. Chris's first open-air message was directed to an audience of one: Ed, the abortuary security guard.
Bishop Philip Powell. Ed has proven himself to be a wicked man and a false convert. His words, which proceed from the abundance of his depraved heart, and his actions reveal nothing but rotten fruit. He is self-deceived and self-absorbed. he calls evil good and good evil. He goes to church on Sunday, while serving as an armor bearer of Satan, as unborn children are sacrificed on the altar of convenience.
Ed is a member of The Centre at Highland Church. I verified this when I spoke to the church secretary/receptionist, Mabel. She said she knew Ed. None of the pastors/elders of the church have returned my calls.
Chris asked me if it would be all right if he tried to talk to Ed. Of course, I told Chris it was okay. What happened when Chris opened his mouth was nothing short of extraordinary. This is what happens when the Holy Spirit moves upon a man.
