Dear Son’Spot Family,
Praise the Lord. It is a blessing and privilege to be in God’s presence and to see Him manifest. That’s our desire each time we meet, to be in the Lord’s presence and for His Holy Spirit to manifest through us however He wants. We meet Thursday and Saturday evenings at 7pm for Bible, prayer, and fellowship. On Sunday mornings at 10am we gather for worship, ministry, and fellowship. We also have a carryout outreach meal on Thursdays at 5pm and we deliver food bags each week to about sixty-five families. Our purpose in all activities is to lift up the name of Jesus. (John 12:32) God continues to change lives, one soul at a time. Praise the Lord!
Good News From Prior Visiting Ministry Team Members “God allowed me to touch many people’s lives through prayer and introduction to Christ throughout this week. This week I was enabled by God to handle harsher rejections and criticisms of Jesus without turning away in fear. This has shown me the amount of tremendous growth that God has produced in me this week.”
“God produced a greater level of courage in me this week. This week I have been able to talk to people in ways I have never been able to before. The freedom that God has brought forth this week is bound to lead to greater advances for the Kingdom, and I am excited to see what God is going to do in the future.” “God has blown me away with how much He has done in just one week. He has grown my faith in general but by far my favorite moment was that I finally received the filling of the Holy Spirit! God has used me to pray for multiple people. I got to be there for a shopkeeper's salvation prayer and another man rededicated. Many others were encouraged too and I prayed for a few people's healing as well. I'm so happy to have been able to bless so many people.” “This week was very interesting for me. There were many types of ministries that I was unfamiliar with that I was able to do. Things such as praying for random people, dramas, singing, holding signs, and handing out tracts were things that I had never done. It was scary at first because I had to get out of my comfort zone and I had to trust God more. This happened when I had to share my testimony with people on the boardwalk. I had written things out beforehand, but I was still worried that I would say the wrong thing or mess up with my words. God really helped me with that and I was able to do it with no problems. I think that the best thing that happened was that I learned to trust God more when it comes to public speaking. This is something that I know that I need to improve but I believe that this week I really improved. This week I also found joy in serving people breakfast. I really enjoy serving so I had a lot of fun handing out food, greeting people, cleaning, and just helping all together. This is something that I already knew before coming here because I have worked in a serving environment before and I have had experience in it. So I was prepared to do hard work. This showed me that serving is one of my ministry fields and that I would do well to work in a place like The Son'Spot or something similar. There were other experiences that happened as well, such as during worship there were times when I was encouraged by God and He showed me some of what I should do.”
Upcoming Ministry Gatherings We are hosting an annual Men’s Gathering at The Son’Spot on Friday night, February 19th at 7pm, and Saturday morning, February 20th at 10am. Similarly, we will also host a Women’s Gathering on Friday night and Saturday morning on March 12th and 13th. There will be worship, Word, ministry, and fellowship at each meeting. We have some lodging at The Son’Spot, and there are also hotels nearby. There is no charge for these gatherings. At each meeting our desire is for God to speak through each one as He desires, with a Word, song, message, prayer, or music. When you come, let God’s Spirit have His way in you. Zechariah 4:6, Galatians 5:16, and 1 Corinthians 14:26 & 31. Please pray and ask God if you are to attend. If you have any questions, email info@SonSpot.org .
The Jesus At The Beach Music & Ministry Festival will be on July 26, 27, & 28, 2021.
Summer Missionary Opportunities There are missionary opportunities everyday in Ocean City and where you live. In Ocean City millions of people will visit this summer. We have opportunities here at The Son’Spot to be a full time missionary with us for the entire summer. There are also opportunities for youth or other groups or families to serve as missionaries for a week, usually Sunday evening through Saturday noon. This is a great opportunity to practice sharing the Gospel.
From June to September we gather everyday (except Wednesday) at 10am for sharing the Word and prayer, then complete work projects, and at 5pm go on the boardwalk for outreach ministry. We gather again at 8pm for praise, worship, Word, prayer, fellowship, and ministry. Additionally, the food ministry includes dinner on Thursdays at 5:30pm, and breakfast on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30am. We also deliver food bags and minister to people in their homes each week.
Each morning one to two hundred people come in for breakfast. They are mostly international students here to work for the summer. We pray with them, love them, and share the Gospel of Jesus with them. Frequently people share testimonies from the front about what God has done in their lives and how to be born again. Similar ministry occurs with the Thursday dinner. The reason for the food ministry is not to physically feed people, but to provide the opportunity to lift up the name of Jesus to our guests.
The Lord uses our full time missionaries and the visiting groups to help in all these activities. Also during the boardwalk outreach they carry crosses, pass out scripture tracts, share one-on-one, pray, do dramas, sing songs, and help dig the hole for the sand sculptures. And they provide the many hands needed to prepare, serve, and clean up for the food ministry.
Please pray and ask the Lord if HE is sending YOU. It’s all about Him, and we want to receive the ones HE sends to accomplish His purposes. As the Bible says in Zechariah 4:6, it’s not by our power, might, talents, intelligence, or anything else, but it is by God’s Spirit that ministry is accomplished. Without God’s Spirit, it is only flesh and of minimal value. If you are interested in discussing this opportunity, please contact us. You can contact us through our web site, and also see pictures and additional information at SonSpot.org.
Thank You Thank you for your prayerful, financial, and ministry participation. We pray that God blesses you because of your faithfulness to Him. Please continue to pray with us for God’s will to be accomplished everyday. Blessings, Anointing, and Substance, in JESUS, we pray, Gary and Cathy
