Dear Jesus At The Beach Family,
Praise the Lord! Jesus is The Way, The Truth, and The Life! The Jesus At The Beach Music & Ministry Festival was a blessed time in the Lord. The ministry God accomplished was awesome through music, drama, His Word, testimony, and prayer. Although this occurs year round at The Son’Spot, for the Jesus At The Beach Festival we move out of our regular gathering place for three days and go to the convention center during the day and on the beach at night. We gathered in the mornings to worship, pray, and hear the alive and active Word of God. At night on the beach we met and worshiped with song and dance, spoke the Word, and testified on the boardwalk stage. The prayer tent was very busy as many sought the Lord. The outside ministry allowed believers and non-believers to hear the Gospel and see public worship of the Lord. The Lord’s presence was there and He gave His Good News to whoever would receive it. On Wednesday we baptized several people in the ocean. We praised the Lord in song, preached the Word about salvation, baptism, and living in God’s Spirit. As the people were being led into the water each one was counseled and prayed with. A crowd gathered, listened to the praise music, and was a witness to the public demonstration of becoming a new creation in Christ. Praise the Lord. It was a blessing.
Good News Reports From Jesus At The Beach Festival
“We were so blessed with our visit to Ocean City and being able to come to Jesus At The Beach again this year. It’s such a joyful and refreshing time in the Lord and one that we look forward to each summer. The music and the Word and the testimonies were the exact message needed at this time. Only heaven will reveal the impact and blessing this ministry has had on the lives of people – even those who perhaps just listened for a brief time from the boardwalk. God bless everyone who came and received or gave of themselves. We loved it!! God bless you. You guys are an inspiration to the body of Christ!! “
“I wanted to share about the Lord releasing me from fear. A gentleman spoke about how people can allow fear to come into our lives. He shared that fear came into his life to the point that he would wake up hyperventilating. The Lord took away the fear that gripped his life. There was an alter call and I felt God urging me to go up for prayer. God showed me that I let fear come into my life at different times and I had not totally let go of fear. The Lord touched my life and delivered me from fear! I give Him the glory! There was a portion of Psalm 34 that was shared in the service. One of the scriptures I have as a memory scripture is Psalm 34:4, ‘I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears..”
“This year was the first year I ministered with a solo praise dance on the stage at the beach. Although I have done group dances before with my church praise dance team, I truly felt led by God to bring a dance alone. I cannot describe the amazing feeling of His presence on that stage. I thank God for not only giving me the boldness, but also allowing me to be filled by His Holy Spirit.”
“To God be the glory. At the convention center God spoke to me and delivered me from all of my fears! His presence and anointing met me at Jesus At The Beach. It has been a divine appointment and I am forever grateful.”
“It is always a privilege to work with you guys at Jesus At The Beach. I always look forward to coming here. This year I can finally say that I was used to lead a person to salvation by sharing the Gospel at the boardwalk. After some years of outreaching work, I finally have the experience of doing the prayer of repentance with someone. God has a plan for me. I love you all.”
“My first time here was great but this visit was the one that impacted me the most. I am definitely going to be here next year. I love you and God bless you. May God continue to make His Word flow through you into others.”
“I really enjoyed being in Ocean City this year and honestly wish it could last longer. It was such a blessing and I loved being able to see the Holy Spirit moving in and through so many different people as we all came together for this wonderful ministry. It really touched me. I loved the variety of people and the diversity. And I loved knowing that we are all so different, but we are all here for one purpose; to praise God. I definitely learned some very valuable things.” “When I received the invite to go to Ocean City to work with Son’Spot Ministries I wasn’t sure how to feel. I had never gone out in the mission field before and felt a little intimidated. I am so glad I came. The work being done here, the outreach, is so very needed. I learned so much about the needs of the community and just about how to love on someone. I haven’t handed out tracts in quite some years and it was refreshing to see that it still gets done. There are people out there hungry for the Word of God and I believe Son’Spot Ministries is going in the right direction and making a huge impact. I was heavily impacted by the experience. I was praying for confirmation about what the Lord had planned for me. I received that confirmation here. God is working here, and the Spirit is freely moving. I was encouraged, blessed, and ministered to here. I enjoyed the people, and atmosphere, and pray that everyone who has a gift or talent does not bury it , but that it be multiplied. (Read Matthew 25:14-30) I pray that God continues to bless the ministry in Jesus’ name!”
“I thank God for bringing me to Ocean City to see the family of the Lord, spend time with them, and proclaim the Word of God.”
“I’ve loved getting to spend time and fellowship with God’s people this week. As I continue to grow in the Lord, I am reminded of how the body of Christ reflects the love of God and that encourages me greatly.”
“I love and learned from you. I also want to thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I make it my priority to read Proverbs every month. My daily dose. The Lord spoke in reminding us of all of God’s promises. We shall not fear!”
“The first day I arrived at Son’Spot I felt the Spirit of the Lord. During worship the Lord ministered to my heart. I felt the peace of God cover me.”
“At the convention center it was said to leave your burdens at the alter. So at the alter I left the burden of the love I was missing from my family and the burden of their salvation. All of a sudden I prayed and the Holy Spirit rushed through me. The Lord opened my eyes and He filled the things that felt missing in me. He restored by mind, gave me joy, and I was fully at peace. I now know that love that I was missing. It is the most beautiful thing to ever happen. I know He will work in my family. I trust Him. I know I have a heart that is no longer mine. My heart belongs to Jesus fully. To God be the glory! Don’t be afraid to seek Him. Do not fear. Open your heart and allow Him in. He will give you more than you could imagine. You are loved and you are chosen.”
“I am so very blessed to have met you. You and your team are amazing. God is going to continue to take this ministry from glory to glory. When I first came here I did not realize how much God would glorify Himself on this trip. I have felt the Spirit throughout this trip. God confirmed a blessing over my life while I was here. God had prepared my heart while being on this trip. He has made it possible for me to continue humbling myself. He has shown me that He pours out blessings to those that humble themselves. Thank you dearly. God bless.”
We praise and thank the Lord for all the ministry He accomplished during the festival.
