John 3:16 A little boy was selling newspapers on the corner, the people were in and out of the cold. The little boy was so cold that he wasn't trying to sell many papers. He walked up to a policeman and said, 'Mister, you wouldn't happen to know where a poor boy could find a warm place to sleep tonight would you? You see, I sleep in a box up around the corner there and down the alley and it's awful cold in there for tonight Sure would be nice to have a warm place to stay.'
The policeman looked down at the little boy and said, 'You go down the street to that big white house and you knock on the door. When they come out the door you just say John 3:16, and they will let you in.' So he did. He walked up the steps and knocked on the door, and a lady answered. He looked up and said, 'John 3:16
.' The lady said, 'Come on in, Son.' She took him in and she sat him down in a split bottom rocker in front of a great big old fireplace, and she went off.. The boy sat there for a while and thought to imself: John 3:16 ...I don't understand it, but it sure makes a cold boy warm.
Later she came back and asked him 'Are you hungry? He said, 'Well, just a little. I haven't eaten in a couple of days, and I guess I could stand a little bit of food,' The lady took him in the kitchen and sat him down to a table full of wonderful food. He ate and ate until he couldn't eat any more. Then he thought to himself: John 3:16 ... Boy, I sure don't understand it but it sure makes a hungry boy full.
She took him upstairs to a bathroom to a huge bathtub filled with warm water, and he sat there and soaked for a while. As he soaked, he thought to himself: John 3:16 ... I sure don't understand it, but it makes a poor boy clean.. You know, I've not had a bath, a real bath, in my whole life. The only bath I ever had was when I stood in front of that big old fire hydrant as they flushed it out.
The lady came in and got him. She took him to a room, tucked him into a big old feather bed, pulled the covers up around his neck, kissed him goodnight and turned out the lights. As he lay in the darkness and looked out the window at the snow coming down on that cold night, he thought to himself: John 3:16 ...I don't understand it but it sure makes a tired boy rested.
The next morning the lady came back up and took him down again to that same big table full of food. After he ate, she took him back to that same big old split bottom rocker in front of the fireplace and picked up a big old Bible. She sat down in front of him and looked into his young face. 'Do you understand John 3:16 ? ' she asked gently. He replied, 'No, Ma'am, I don't. The first time I ever heard it was last night when the policeman told me to use it,'
She opened the Bible to John 3:16 and began to explain to him about Jesus . Right there, in front of that big old fireplace, he gave his heart and life to Jesus. He sat there and thought: John 3:16 -- don't understand it, but it sure makes a lost boy feel safe.
You know, I have to confess I don't understand it either, how God was willing to send His Son to die for me, and how Jesus would agree to do such a thing. I don't understand the agony of the Father and every angel in heaven as they watched Jesus suffer and die. I don't understand the intense love for ME that kept Jesus on the cross till the end. I don't understand it, but it sure does make life worth living.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life..
Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.' Pass this on only if you mean it. I do Love Jesus . He is my source of existence... He keeps me functioning each and every day. Phil 4:13 If you love Jesus and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things he has done for you, send this on. Take 60 seconds & give this a shot! Let's just see if Satan stops this one.

Jesus Christ is God!
I’m a Christian and I love Jesus. He saved my soul from eternal damnation, forgave my sins, and gave me a new life. I was born again in January of 1971 at age 37, and my life dramatically changed. He will do the same for anyone who will make Him the Lord and Savior of their life: repent of their sins, believe in His sacrificial death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead. Jesus Christ is God in the flesh who came to earth to pay the price for our sins with His blood, and He offers salvation to anyone who will trust in Him.
Jesus is a Holy God who cannot abide sin. He will not have fellowship with sin. He punishes sin.
However, in order to forgive sin, He must come in contact with sinners. In fact, God (Jesus), hates the sin, but loves the sinner. You come to Jesus just as you are and He takes the sinner who trusts in Him and cleans the sinner up. He converts the sinner to someone different, a new person in Christ.
You either serve Jesus, or you serve the devil. There is no middle ground. Your present life and your eternal life is either with Jesus or the devil. You chose: Heaven or Hell!

Bold Christian University
An Evangelical Training Program Report
My name is Dr. Elisha Ndema.
I am serving the Lord in Tanzania. I am one of the graduates from Bold Christian University. The Lord has put a burden in my heart to reach the lost with the message of the gospel.Frankly speaking, Bold Christian University has sharpened me in my understanding on Evangelism. It has increased me intellectually as well as spiritual life is concerned. It has aroused my desire to reach the lost. In order to reach my goal I have discovered that this work can not be done by one person and be successful. Therefore I have to train men and women of God who can carry out this command which our Lord Jesus Christ commanded us according to Matt.28:19-20. I have conducted the second Evangelism training program since 1st July, up to 5th July, 2014; which was held at Sengerema Anglican Church, Mwanza, Tanzania. It has been successful; the trainees themselves have acknowledged that this program was very helpful to them; 17 trainees successfully completed the program, now they have been sent out to put into practice what they have learned. I expect to hear reports from them whether there is success or failure. This will help me to encourage them in every area of their ministry. The first one was held from 1st June up to 8th June, 2014. Even this one was successful; eleven trainees were trained.
Dr Otto,Much greetings in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ.This week 16 people have been converted in my area as the result of Bold Christian University Evangelism Training.It has been a blessing to see people been reconciled to the Lord. Praise Him. Frankly speaking, Bold Christian University is God's tool which is useful in shaping believers to be witnesses for Jesus.Next month, I am planning to conduct the third Evangelism Training Program. Please remember to pray for it so that may God provide our spiritual and physical needs to make that program successful.I wish you to be successful in your daily ministry.
