Good News Great Joy!

Posted by Shaun Greeson on Thursday, October 10, 2019 @ 11:44 AM

I want to encourage you to take the time to stop by the new Missions Prayer room on the bottom floor of the Airport Campus across from the Missions Map wall. Browse through and take a moment to pray for a child that will receive an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox this year. Directions are located directly below all of the pictures of some beautiful children.

Also, take time to sit and pray through the prompts on the TV located in the room and learn more about our missionaries and partners we support at The Lambs Chapel. There are also ways to pray for the Persecuted church as well. Take the literature home and make it a daily habit to lift up those that are persecuted for their faith, yet still stand strong in the Gospel. 

Prayer is our only hope to bring this world to Jesus. Join in and help us begin a movement of God across the nations. Psalm 2:8 says, 

"Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.

Let's seek the Lord in this and ask that God's favor be upon us, and establish the work of our hands as Psalm 90:17 proclaims. 

Thank you for praying!

Prayer in the Midst of Tragedy

Posted by Shaun Greeson on Monday, September 16, 2019 @ 9:41 AM

Tragedies bring people to a place of longing and searching, that is why it is the greatest opportunity for those that are followers of Jesus to get involved in every way they can.  The gospel is for hurting and broken people. At the time of the deepest need of a hurting person is when the gospel hit’s home. When all hope is lost, the gospel offers the greatest hope. 

It is good to see organizations like Samaritan’s Purse and Feed the Hunger run to tragedy and heartbreak. I pray that your heart runs to hurting and broken people. I pray you will pray for those affected by Hurricane Dorian and pray that the gospel is sent forth and broken lives can receive hope in Jesus Name.

Check out some of the articles that show how they are working in the Bahamas and other tragedy-stricken areas.

Prayer is What is Needed Most!

Posted by Shaun Greeson on Monday, July 29, 2019 @ 10:54 AM

I have been traveling a lot this year. I have been to India, Nepal, Honduras, Dominican Republic internationally and I have also spent a week in Wilmington, NC. I have been working with ministries across Burlington, NC and Georgia to help with poverty stricken areas and food distribution as well as improving living conditions for those recovering from disasters, Hurricane Florence, to be exact. I have done all of this in the last 6 months. In the near future their will be many opportunities to get involved with medical missions and local missions around Burlington, NC. There is one thing that I have noticed that is needed apart from anything else whether internationally or locally, and it is prayer. 

Prayer is the one thing that can change hearts and lives. Over the past few months God has been dealing with me over the issue of prayer. One thing that I keep hearing is that if prayer is not first on your mind and in your heart then you are walking blindly. In the words of John Piper, "Prayer is a walkie-talkie for warfare, not a domestic intercom for increasing our conveniences." One of my favorite verses in God's Word is Psalm 90:17 "Let the favor of the Lord be upon us, and establish the work of our hands-- yes establish the work of our hands." This verse is a prayer. I have been thinking through how we as The Lamb's Chapel can more effective and how the favor of the Lord can be upon us and establish the work of our hands. We do not need more stuff. We need a heart for lost people hurting and dying in this world. What God has shown me in praying and meditating on this verse is that the first thing we need to do is pray and the outcome of the prayer will be favor on all that we do.

For the past several weeks I have been working on The Lamb's Chapel Missions Wall. What you will see as you walk past it are clip boards with prayer notes for several of our international missionaries. Below the prayer notes are prayer booklets for Voice of the Martyrs and Samaritan's Purse. Both of these books give you an idea of both the persecuted church as well as the needs around the world that need your prayers. Please take a moment and visit the Missions Wall near the prayer rooms and take time to pray through some the prayer points. 

Please continue to check back to see how you can pray for our missionaries internationally and locally. Also, you can check out how to get involved at missions.tlcalive.com.

Desperate Needs Require Desperate Measures

Posted by Shaun Greeson on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 @ 10:54 AM

This is not my normal blog post. I normally try to keep everything close to home or share about how TLC is working in a far away land. I want to share something that God put on my heart while reading Voice of the Martyrs yesterday. 

Most believers, those that attend church and read their Bible regularly, rarely think about how they got their Bible or what it actually cost for them to sit down and read it without any one knocking down their door to charge them with treason. The Bible is the best selling book in the world at 3.9 billion copies over the last 5o years. The next closest book in sales is "Questions from the Works of Mao Tsa-Tung" at 820 million copies. What a difference! The Bible is something we in America take for granted and use as a paper weight on our coffee tables while others in countries like India, Nepal, China, and North Korea scoff and sometimes arrest anyone who even thinks of reading a Bible or believing in Jesus. 

In the June 2019 edition of Voice of the Martyrs, otherwise known as VOM, they dedicated the issue to North Korea and those that are fighting to share the gospel in the most dangerous country in the world. The key article in the issue was on smuggling Bibles across the border of China into North Korea. The one book that can do more damage according to Kim Jong Un is the Bible. It is outlawed and anyone found with a Bible or caught smuggling Bibles usually ends up dead after extensive torture. Despite the consequences many believers continue to send packages and move Bibles in and out of the country of North Korea. One of the most popular ways that Bibles are being sent across the border are through balloon launches. What is so encouraging is to read stories about how Bibles have gotten into hands of political leaders and changed lives. The stories go on and on. These stories are more than stories. They are real life experiences of how God works miracles. 

Please take some time today and over the next few days to pray for the North Korean believers and their efforts to share the Good News of Jesus across the land. Pray that the Bible will continue to flood the border to the point that the border police believe on Jesus and allow more and more Bibles through. Pray the front-line workers and those in political areas will believe and start a revolution of turning their world upside down for Christ. Pray that those that are native to North Korea that are believers will go back and carry the gospel with them. Lastly, praise God for believer in North Korea. Pray for their strength to endure and persevere. Pray the Holy Spirit will lead and direct them to the right people in order to get the message of Jesus into the communities and villages. 

Thank you for your prayers in bringing the Nations to Jesus!

Honduras Medical Mission Trip

Posted by Shaun Greeson on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 @ 3:10 PM

I am excited to announce that we are going to Honduras in January 2020. We will be working in the new clinic that The Lambs Chapel has had a big part in opening in Siguatepeque, Honduras. This facility is a new facility with many upgrades. The clinic sees around 80 to 100 patients a week right now but desires to see more once fully staffed and open all day long.

On this trip we will be working in the villages around the clinic as well as working in the clinic doing ultrasounds and check-ups. If you are a Doctor, Nurse, CNA, even a Dentist or Hygienist interested in going on this trip please let me know at missions@thelambschapel.org. We will be having an interest meeting very soon. 

Not Your Normal Way to Offer Hope

Posted by Shaun Greeson on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 @ 1:07 PM

Who would have thought that blueberries would be a way to share the gospel and offer hope to the hungry? Yes, blueberries!

This past Saturday The Lamb’s Chapel took a group to First Fruit Farms in Louisburg, NC to plant blueberries. We planted 1,000 blueberry bushes in about 45 minutes. These blueberry bushes when fully grown will produce about 10,000 pounds of blueberries and will provide healthy food and natural vitamins to those in need. Jason Brown, the owner of First Fruits Farm, says that blueberries are just the first of many fruits that are long-term producers that will be planted. 

We have finished the blueberries. Now we just have to wait until they are producing berries. We do not have to wait on the Good News of Jesus going out though. The good thing about all of the food that goes out of First Fruits Farm is that the gospel goes out as well. God is blessing First Fruits Farm in a wonderful way. 

Please pray for their ministry and for the favor of God on Jason and his family as he follows Jesus. 

Abundant Life

Everyone desires deep down to have abundant life. It is so easy to get caught up in the American Dream mentality of this world where the more you have the better off you are in life. Oh, how we have been deceived into thinking that abundant life is a life of ease and comfort.  We have a ministry called Abundant Life, that we support at The Lambs Chapel that works with the mentally and physically challenged. What a blessing the Abundant Life ministry is to those they help day in and day out with everyday needs, struggles, and challenges. If you talked with the staff at Abundant Life they would say there are more triumphs and rejoicing than struggles and complaints. I have been to several of the Abundant Life events and I can truly say that if you want to see abundant life as pictured in the Bible in John 10:10, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly,” then come see the Abundant Life ministry in action on talent show night or on a Big Bash night. You can even stop by the Haw River Campus and see them in their day program activities. The talent show was last week, so you will have to wait for next year, but Big Bash happens every last Thursday of the month at the Airport Campus of The Lamb's Chapel.

This past week I witnessed one of the greatest times of worship and abundant life that I have ever experienced. These guys let it all hang out and left nothing on the table when it came to talking and singing about Jesus.

Take a moment and pray for Steve and Gretchen Glahn as they discern the Holy Spirit in how to lead this ministry forward in 2019. 

Don't forget to check out all of the ministries that The Lamb's Chapel supports. 

Always something to DO!

Posted by Phil Seay on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 @ 2:25 PM

On the farm there is always something going on. If you are not mowing, then you are plowing. If you are not plowing, then you are building barns to put your harvest into.  Jason Brown has one of the most beautiful farms in North Carolina. God has blessed him as he has been obedient to follow. We at The Lambs Chapel have been able to partner with him in several ways over the past several months. In the fall of last year, we were able to harvest sweet potatoes for his farm so that they could be given away to the community. At our men's conference in March, God provided a lawn tractor to help with the mowing of over 200 acres. This past Saturday a group of men from TLC worked on a new structure.  This new Servant Center is going to help with a community garden by offering a place to organize produce while ministering to volunteers. Also, on April 13, 2019 we are going back to the farm to help plant blueberry bushes. If you would like to help out on April 13, 2019 go to blueberries.tlcalive.com to register. 

If you cannot tell, this farm is not Jason Brown's, it is God's and Jason just manages it for him and gives away what God tells him to. If you have the opportunity check out First Fruits Farm you will be amazed at all they do. We are excited to partner with people that love giving everything they have to the One who gave it all for us. To God be the glory!

God at Work!

Posted by Shaun Greeson on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 @ 3:41 PM

It is exciting when you see God at work. I know that every day I see God do amazing things like put that fiery ball in the sky and paint a beautiful sunrise and sunset. I see God in my grandchildren as they are learning to talk and say mommy or daddy. I see God in the little things and details because God is a God of details. It is amazing that God can work in lives the same way He works in mine all across the world. I have been travelling for the past month it seems like to different places around the world. The one thing I have noticed is that God is working in the smallest details of every place that I have visited. Honduras is no different. God is at work in this small country. 

 

We have some great friends in Central America and some great partners as well. We have been partnering with a church in Honduras that has opened a clinic. The clinic opened in 2002 in a small little room and had one bed and a small pharmacy. As of January 2019, the clinic is up and running and seeing about 70 patients a week. This is answered prayer. We are not only helping people with their physical problems, we are helping them with their spiritual ones as well. The doctor and nurses of the clinic are able to pray with patients and offer guidance day in and day out. What a great opportunity to see God work. 

 

We are also partnering with a church and a school in Comayagua, Honduras. The pastor of this church has a vision to see a Christian School on the premises that goes from kindergarten to 12thgrade. The school only has 3 classrooms at this time. He desires to see children reach their God given abilities and God given design. As I visited the church on the Sunday I was there, there were over 80 children along with their moms and dads. The village is over run with children with single moms as mothers. Please pray for Francisco as he leads this church and school. He needs help with every aspect. 

 

We are doing so much more than I can ever mention in Honduras. Trust me, God is at work. 

 

Please pray for Bethany Baptist Clinic and those that are involved everyday with people. Pray that the gospel is able to go out with each and every patient. Pray for Francisco and his vision as it continues to grow for the school. Pray for students to volunteer from the states as interns to aid in getting teachers and the staff he needs for the school. Pray for his church and his willingness to reach out to the single mothers to offer a school so that the mothers can go to work to provide for their families. Pray for Carlos as he leads another church we partner with as it grows and as he trains pastors for church plants. 

 

Thank you for your prayers and for continually putting missions first at The Lamb’s Chapel. 

Let the Little Children Come to Me

Posted by Shaun Greeson on Thursday, February 14, 2019 @ 12:15 PM

It is always a pleasure to get out into the community and actually see what is going on. I spend a lot of time behind a desk trying to email and call to take care of the mission opportunities that The Lamb’s Chapel supports around the city, county, state and around the world. Getting face to face time with people that need help is always my heart. This morning I was able to walk into Haw River Elementary School and give them a $500.00 gift card for their resource room. I also had the opportunity to tour the resource room and hear the heart of some wonderful teachers, principals, and social workers. Haw River Elementary have some amazing people fighting for the children in the community. It is great to know that there are people that care so much for those that may not be getting what they need such as school supplies, uniforms, and food. I just want to commend Haw River Elementary for doing a great job creating an environment for children that is loving and caring. I also want to commend them on how they have things set up for their students and their students. It is awesome that we get to partner with them in helping students grow into the young men and women God desires for them to become. I pray that as you read this that you are moved to pray for the students, teachers, and, administration of our school system. Pray that as these students are gaining access to the supplies, clothing, and food that they need that they are also given the opportunity to hear that Jesus is Lord of Lord’s and King of Kings.
