I believe most persons who are involved with the planting of our church here in Lake Havasu will agree that our most successful method of growth has been through the Spirit of Freedom Christian Intervention Program.
Rev. Rick Faulkner, of Hemet, Ca. is the regional supervior for Spirit of Freedom, and to facilitate the organization of a chapter in Lake Havasu, during the early part of May, he joined with Pastor Buxton to make calls on various organizations in the area. Among these were judges, probation offices, the Lake Havasu city council, mayor of Lake Havasu, Interagency, United Way, State of Arizona Department of Correction, Mohave County Probation Department, Mohave Mental Health Clinic, Child Protection Services, and the Arizona Department of Economic Security Administration.
Michael Buxton regularly teaches the class, but tomorrow night Pastor Buxton will teach as Michael is on vacation. Pastor will be teaching the 16th lesson. We have had phenomenal success with this program. Close to 20 persons are enrolled.
Two Sundays ago, there were four CIP members in church; including their families and friends there were 19 people in church–directly related to the CIP program!
On last Tuesday night after our CIP meeting, Pastor Buxton baptized four persons–all a result of the Christian Intervention program. Here Laurel Hope is about to be baptized. She is 80 years old.
Laurel’s son, George rejoices after he was baptized in Jesus’ name.
Michelle is George’s wife. A glorious victory here!
Krystal has made a major turn-around in her life. Already she has brought to church her mother and her twin sister.
