Listen in as Edmee and Bevelyn talk about their adventures spreading the Gospel in Denver in July of 2017: from ministering to a former pastor who had fallen into despair and alcohol following the death of his first wife, and his new family which was in the throes of domestic abuse; to standing up righteously against Planned Parenthood alongside a couple who have spent the last twenty years of their lives rescuing women from abortion.

Las Vegas is known as a big party city, but the first thing that hit us was how overrated it is. Las Vegas is just a big city in the middle of a desert. The people who created it must have said, “Ok, let’s create a city in the middle of a desert where people can just get drunk and gamble!” So they dressed up the city with zillions of neon signs so at first glance it looks all glitzy and glamorous, but the after-effects are devastating…
In the spring of 2017, we took our second trip to LA while ministering in Las Vegas. We really saw the LORD at work in so many awesome and wonderful ways! The glory and majesty of our God was re-confirmed to us, and we learned once again that everything is in God! It’s in You, Lord!
Baltimore was memorable. Whether it was ministering to the youth, drug dealers and users, or literally having church in the Park with homeless people, our experience in Baltimore really impacted our ministry. One rainy day we decided to go to the mall to see if there were people we could minister to.
We had no idea what God had in store for us until the first day we arrived in Detroit. Bevelyn met a man on the plane who had told her about a good restaurant to go to for dinner in the city, so we decided to check it out. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we met a homeless man named Donald who sat in front of the dining establishment asking for money.
As soon as we arrived in LA, we took the opportunity to engage with our Uber driver and the lady who helped us at the car rental as Bevelyn had a specific word for her. The next day, Bevelyn wanted to hit Compton (you probably know why) and surprisingly we did not see much going on there.
The first day we arrived in San Francisco, we decided to go minister in The Tenderloin. We landed on Ellis Street and were pleasantly surprised to find Glide and YWAM. Those two Christian organizations have a tremendous impact in the area. On a side note, Glide was featured in the movie The Pursuit of Happyness.
