Tuesday March 31st: I'm now in Houston after a 1200 mile drive back from my mission in Naples, FL. Thanks be to God for a safe trip. We hear the "Servant Songs" from Isaiah during Holy Week. These songs have changed my life. I hear God calling me in them to proclaim the Gospel to the world. May you sense God speaking to you as you read the Scriptures and meditate.
What a Lenten five weeks this has been! I have amazing memories and blessings. Baton Rouge...Lake Charles and Naples, FL.
TBN/Church Channel viewers: My episode: Surrender to Jesus being broadcast: Here is the booklet "Experience Rebirth" that I offered. HERE You can get the DVD or CD at: Champions Also, check out my book: The Sacred Walk. Also, prayer requests if you have them. Do you have Eternal Life? (If you would like the beautiful print of the crucifixion, just make a donation and tell me you would like the print in the misc. instructions, or call and tell my representative (844-FATHERC) that you would like to donate.) Thank you!
Mission accomplished in Naples FL. at St. Agnes Church. (Fourth week of Lent) Wow. The final night there was some 850 people there! What a celebration of the Holy Spirit. Thunderous choir. Loved it. So many people from so many places. Such encouragement and many became my partners for television. God bless these people as we near Holy Week and Easter. I head to Ft. Meyers today for another treatment from my eye doctor. I still have many floaters and need them to be lasered still. I will drive to New Smyrna Beach on Friday to be with my sister for a week. I will then drive back to Houston during Holy Week.
Early March, I preached a mission in Lake Charles Louisiana. (March 1-3) Pics below. The people came out in great numbers. Monday night we have 500 people there! Tuesday night we were all filled with the Holy Spirit. It was such a blessing seeing many of my friends and partners in Lake Charles again. I look forward to my return the second week of Lent, next year.
A blessed Lent to you. Lent is a season of grace. May you make the changes you need to in your life with God's help. Strive for significance, not necessarily success. See more of my reflections at LENT. Pictures of my mission below.
Mission in Baton Rouge: (Feb. 21-15) Unforgettable! So many people. So gracious and enthusiastic. They all touched my life. We were all filled with the Holy Spirit the final night.
Here are some pictures from B.R. About 700 present Monday night!
I finished the writing of my 19th book: Challenges Make Champions a week ago. I sent it to my editor in Fresno and she will work on it for a month or so. I began writing this on Nov. 4th, so it took about 100 days of diligent work to produce this book. Now the editing phase begins. We are hoping for a June publication.

Wed. Feb 11th: I preached a day of recollection for 200 women in Houston Wed. Feb. 11th. This was at the Charity Guild Store (upstairs) I preached two full talks and a Mass of Our Lady of Lourdes. What a blessed time we had. If you are ever in Houston, stop by their store and buy something. They sell clothes and furniture and other goods, similar to a Good Will store. What a wide selection. The proceeds go to poor children.
