The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some

men count slackness… 2Peter 3:9



Hello Friends / Co-laborers in Christ Jesus.

Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised. For there is none like our God! Remember whose we are and who we are!! God is faithful and He is excited about us and delights to demonstrate His power, presence and promises in and through our very lives. This is an amazing time for the ‘greater one’ to live his life through us – so let us Rise ‘N Shine and give God the glory! We have incredible opportunities all around us – every day! May God’s grace, favor and wisdom rest upon us and flow out to those around us, as we continue to walk in his peace. Remember, for it is God who works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure.  May our hearts take courage today!

I give thanks to God for your lives and testimony – and thank you for being such a blessing to so many people. Thank you for your continued support to this ministry and to the work that God has set before us. We have received many responses in regards to the TEXAS THOROUGHBRED LIFE ESTATES: Thank you for your generosity.  And YES, we are still receiving donations for this discipleship property. We are so encouraged by seeing the hand of God at work on our behalf in so many ways.

Currently, I am working with a realtor, an accountant, a banker, secretary of state and the comptroller office. In spite of what’s happening in our world, we are truly seeing the goodness of our God! I’ve learned so much during this process and also, I came to realize that this takes more time than one would think. Nonetheless, I am very encouraged by the progress that has been made thus far, and by the doors that continue to open on our behalf. As scriptures say, ‘so shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.’ Prov 3:4

Discipleship Testimonies

My name is Isaac Shaw:

I accepted Christ as a young kid. While there were times that I experienced God and the spirit, there were also times where I would feel super distant from God. My senior year of high school and freshman year of college was a tough time for me mentally. Even though there were people around me that loved me, I sometimes felt totally alone. I finally reached a breaking point and I asked my parents for advice. My Mom gave me the number of a guy that someone had told her about. I called him and told him a little about myself and asked him if he could disciple me. He asked when I could meet to talk and I said tonight if he was available. He said he was at 7 pm. So, I walked into Fuego restaurant not knowing who I was meeting and this black man in his 60’s walks up and says, “Are you Isaac?” Then he gave me a huge hug. Since then, Leonard and I have been meeting every Thursday. Leonard is someone who I can talk to about anything and know that he will always be there for me. He has helped me grow my relationship with the Holy Spirit and is encouraging me to get into the Word. I’m not sure where my life would be if I had not given him a call. I am now helping him with Texas Thoroughbred Life Estates and am excited about where God is taking me and what he is going to do with my life 

Matthew Sullivan:

Leonard, you’re truly an amazing person and God is working through you. You’re a welcoming light to dull hearts and are always ready to put a smile on someone’s face. It has truly been a blessing to come to know you. I hope that our friendship will flourish for many more years to come.  Don’t ever let this world bring your spirits down and never stop being the loving person you are. May the Lord continue to light your way and work miracles through you. I am very thankful that we, during this journey called life, have crossed paths. You will always have a place at my table.

 OVERVIEW – brief testimony – Leonard: As a young man, I felt God call me to a life of discipleship. I responded to that call, and I have spent the last 48 years diligently spreading the gospel and making disciples. I have always been passionate about Jesus and a lover of people. Everyone is made in the image of God, and I look upon everyone as royalty that is just waiting to be told the gospel. 

When I really got serious about spreading the gospel and making disciples, I started by regularly picking up hitchhikers on the side of the road and taking them either to their destination or to my home for a shower and a hot meal.  My heart for service took on slightly different forms depending on where I lived, but I made it a point to take every opportunity I was presented with to serve and love others to show them the love of God. In 48 years of opening my home to strangers, I have never been threatened, hurt, or stolen from.

It eventually dawned on me that college campuses were one of the biggest mission fields in our country. In the mid-90’s I moved to San Marcos, Texas and became a part of campus ministry at SWT. (Now called University of Texas). I would preach in the Quad 6 times a day, 4 days a week. I also held a weekly Bible study in one of the dorms. In my spare time, I would sit in the student center and wait for students to join my table. I took that as an opportunity to get to know students and to tell them about Jesus! This experience made me all the more passionate about the Lord and dedicated to living a life centered around discipleship. That was 22 years ago.
