GTS News for May 2016

Busy April Recap – Last month started with a second GTS show at the Preakness Health Care Center in Wayne, NJ partnering with Star of Hope Ministries of historic Paterson, New Jersey. Robert Tenny and Steve Lillis handled the GTS portable pool table set up while eighteen Star of Hope volunteers wheeled patients down into a large cafeteria to view the show. The theme of the show was “The joy of the Lord is your strength”.

Patients' faces lit up with the good news and Jesus Christ was glorified! Next up the Legacy Minded Men “Man Conference” at Christ International Church in Lincoln Park, NJ with a GTS booth and contacts made by Steve Lillis for future GTS events.

Another local event was the Jesus for Muslims (JFM) Banquet at Calvary Temple Church in Wayne, NJ. GTS Board member Rob Boswell attended and networked with other missionary minded people for future Philippines mission trips in 2016 and 2017.

Steve then went to the annual Hopkins Super Billiards Expo in Oaks, PA and partnered with “Playing Safe”, another Christian ministry reaching pool players for Christ.

Steve hopped a plane the day after and went to Phoenix, AZ to join partner Mike Massey for a week of ministry. Mike and Steve did a GTS show in the Sun City Rec Center and Mike sang his pool playing Gospel country songs at the American Legion nearby. Praise God for these opportunities to share the love of Jesus! Next month we will give an update on our plans for a Billiard Sports Café in Morocco! Please pray!

GTS College Update - Steve Lillis did a GTS show at William Paterson University (WPU) last month. This might have been the best one yet at WPU thanks to the prayers and support of the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF) on the campus.

Sixty packets of Christian literature were accepted by the students and a handful of students responded to Christ, with one student who attended Steve’s course, writing her English class with a summary report as to how the show changed her life. She indicated that she gave her heart to Jesus at the show and she is now reading her Bible every day and learning more about her savior.

Steve will be attending a Chi Alpha campus leadership summit in June and will meet representatives from dozens of colleges who can bring Steve to campuses on the East Coast next school year. Please pray for this exciting opportunity!
