The Bus Ministry and my Family

I didn't ride a bus to church, but I did attend church as a child thanks to caring friends of my family's who picked my sister and me up each week....Stanley and Carolyn Arnold of the First Baptist Church in New Lebanon, Ohio. I received Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour at that church. I know that God used this as a springboard that would change our entire family. Through many circumstances, one by one the rest of my family came to know the Lord down the road. Had it not been for this couple in our community reaching out to our family, and many more people that I didn't even know about, as I would find out later in life, we wouldn't be where we are today.

People sometimes criticize bus ministries....they "disrupt" the service because the kids don't behave, the kids only come for the candy and activities, too many gimmicks, etc. Say what you will, but what are you doing then? Don't criticize a program if you aren't doing anything yourself to bring someone to the Lord. Do what you can, where God has put you. If you can't participate physically, you can give financially to help defray the cost. You can make a difference in someone's life!

Watch this video for some touching testimonies of how the Lord used the bus ministry to work in people's lives.
