On July 3, 2015 I went to Pioneer, Louisiana to preach a Revival for a week. 2 week before I left home I had already made reservation for a car rental. When I got to Louisiana I went to the car rental place. They had given my car away. Also, there was about 10 people in line ahead of me that was complaining. I did not complain, I just left. God is a provider. The next thing I did was call another car rental place and when I got there they informed me that the car would cost me $2,600 to drop the car off at New Olean’s International Airport. Now you know at this point frustration was setting in and I started thinking, “I said, that this is no one but the enemy”. Then I heard the voice of the Lord say to trust me and to leave. I said to Pastor Salis let’s go, he said to me I thought you were going to get the rental car. I told him the Lord said trust me. We are going to have to believe the Lord and trust him where ever we maybe.
Pastor Salis let me use his car while I was in Pioneer Louisiana for the time that I was there to preach the Revival. I did not worry about how I was going to get down the highway almost 280 miles to Abbeville Louisiana for the next Revival which was at Pastor Chad Romero Church starting on 10th, of July. When the time came Pastor Salis said that he and his wife were going to drive me there to Abbeville, Louisiana. God use Pastor Salis and his wife in a mighty way. We give God the Glory because he has been making all the necessary arrangement.
On the 12th of July after preaching that Sunday, Pastor Chad Romero said to me that he was going to drive me down to Pascagoula Mississippi. The next Revival was 200 miles down the highway. He said wait a minute brother Mark, this is what I am going to do. I am going to give you my car and let you keep my car down in Mississippi so you can have transportation to take care of the things you need to take care of and also, I know your flight leave out on the Saturday, 18th of July, me and my wife will come to New Olean’s on Saturday morning and meet you at the Airport. I have learned on this Journey, I praise Jesus my Lord for making all things possible, because he is faithful. I want to tell all Gods people this day to trust the lord, all things are possible to them that believe. Mark 9:23. I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for using me and making a way.
